Yep. That's pretty much how I look at life these days. :)

Yeah, me too. She's steel, so nothing much is going to happen to the
hull - a great comfort given that it's my home - but if she broke loose
and broke her masts on a bridge or sunk another boat, We Would Not Be
Amused. That's why I have large (read: 'expensive') anchors, and why
I'll be sailing north in late July or early August: hurricanes and boats
are just not a happy combination.
