At the Dock
There is a degree of adventure and romance associated with sailing ships of all kinds. However, for those of us who are frustrated with a few minute's delay on the freeway or standing in the TSA line at the airport, we can hardly romanticize a sailing voyage that took months to cross the oceans. All things old have their attraction, but sailing on an uncomfortable and slow sailing ship would take a huge cultural orientation for someone who is immersed in technology. I am sure that sailing on such a ship would lose its attraction about the time of the first storm at sea.
