This story is interesting. This young couple indeed has a lot to learn. No
judgement from me as there is nothing wrong with taking the road less traveled.
They may still gain a lot of wisdom over time on that road, if they
are humble and sensible enough to learn in the "school of hard knocks",
that they will inevitably face. Sounds like they just finished lesson one.
Good luck to them!
As they say, it is not smart to put all one’s eggs in one basket.
Unfortunately, it seems that these people don’t have eggs, basket or
common sense. And now their hope is to be better beggars than sailors. It seems
not to occurred to them to get a job and pay for their own foolishness.
Good sailors are the most self reliant group I've ever known. With $90, no job, these individuals are looking for charity for another
boat...They apparently have no plan (or insurance) to clean up the
mess they made with a fiberglass wreck that can't be far off someone's
coast... Let's just glad they didn't require an expensive
and risky rescue by our Coast Guard, funded by the rest of us. Let's hope
their GoFundMe pleas don't result in a more expensive rescue...
This couple has made some very, very foolish decisions. It would be just as
foolish for anyone to give money to their GoFundMe account.
Wow. Early 20s. Tired of working and just want to have fun? Apparently failed
to learn how to sail well enough to make it more than a couple of days. No
insurance. No savings. No jobs. And now wanting the universe to gift them
money so they can try it all again?These kids are the very
embodiment of some really negative stereotypes.I hope somewhere
along the way they manage to learn what they need to know to truly live a happy
and fulfilled life. And sailing or any other worthy hobby is no more than a
tangential part of that.
"Nassau or Bust"!! Well, I guess it's BUST!! Or dare I suggest
it, "Sunken Dreams!"
I find it quite interesting that they took a chance, failed, and now want the
world to pay for it so they can try again. Does anyone else find faulty logic
I find it ironic that he is quoted as saying "Money isn't
everything" yet they have established a go fund me page to get money from
others. I agree money isn't everything, but it is something, it is
tangible, you do need it, and if they haven't figured that out now.
Don't give these people another boat. They are not intelligent enough to
make it. Give them some help and education instead.
I guess we are not meant to just chuck it all and sail through life.
