Later, my friend explained to me what he meant: “People say they want to go, but what they really want to do is talk about going. If they wanted to go, they’d find a way. You’ve got the money for that great cruising yacht and you drive a Porsche, so money can’t be the problem. And even if it was money that was holding you back, you’d find a way. I know people who’ve eaten peanut butter sandwiches for a year to save money for cruising. So it must be that some boaters are afraid to break the ties or quit the job or sell the house or something.
