Ummm I think I will proudly keep my status as a landlocked landlubber. I think I'm going to get seasick just looking at the pictures.

When I was a kid I got to know a "retired" merchant sailor. Lost his leg in some sort of shipboard accident; spent 40 odd years at sea and after his accident he said he moved to Iowa to get as far away from the sea as possible. Lasted about two or three years before he moved out to one of the NC coastal islands... he thought he hated the sea but when he was w/out he realized how much he missed it. He used to make miniature sailing ships, put a remote control motor in them and set them loose on the Mississippi. I suspect the sea was in his blood.
