Welcome to Patriyachtic! It's great to meet you!

Being on a boat that’s moving through the water, it’s so clear.
Everything falls into place in terms of what’s important... and what is not.

Ahhhh, yes. My thoughts exactly. I’m never happier than when I’m on a boat. And if that boat is moving through the water, fine. But even if that boat is docked and there’s not a smidgeon of a breeze, and I’m sweaty and smelly and tired and hungry, I’m still the happiest that I can be. When I’m on a boat.

Someone recently asked me, “Where did it come from—where and when did boats become your passion?” That post is for next week. Until then, thank you for visiting us here at Patriyachtic -- it's really great to "meet" you!

Patriotically, nautically yours,
