The sea is the final frontier.  It's the last place on the planet that hasn't been divided up, regulated, restricted and strangulated by over-reaching governments.  You simply point the bow of your yacht offshore, and instantly you are on the final frontier.

Seventy percent of our planet's surface is water, and you have the freedom of sailing on it from pole to pole.  Water World is yours for the taking.  You have an entire world to explore.  What's your pleasure?

Are you interested in archeological mysteries?  Point your bow toward Easter Island.

The final frontier beckons, and when you set sail, the words of Martin Luther King will echo in your mind, "Free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, I'm free at last."

On the final frontier, you are truly free.

This picture shows a fishing boat in the southern Red Sea.  These fishermen go about their business and show little interest in passing yachts.  They might wave and smile as they motor along, but they never stop to talk.  Just like us, they have places to go and things to do.
