Just do it

Boating 50 years had various boats,last one 34searay did not like ride
Liked trawlers started looking meantime took usps courses
Looked east coast some boars I would not even board
Was in fl. My son sent me boats to look at in fl.
Was on east coast saw on in Tampa looked good told son camedown and agreed
Returned home n.j. Spoke to my broker sold sea ray worked out deal with other broker. Son had servers done by internet
Went down with son brother and friend. 2had no boat experience
Went out with boat for sea trial no problem
Boat had everything only needed food etc
Loads up and got ready to take off
Broker asked hat charts I had showed him map from car renal
Told me he could let me go with out chart which I sent back to him
We took off new we had to go north so turned right after half hour realized
Had go around fl. First as lake sloshed for repairs we had to go around keys
Three later we arrived home
Had few storms , one anchor out really no problems
If we thought too much about it probably would not have done it
Since using same scenario went to Great Lakes and Canada

Always nice to have a new member. But please, review your posts, unless English isn't your first language, it was very hard to make sense of what you were trying to say with all the typos.
