I am posting 10 survey questions that will be a part of my book: Cruising Mental Health: “Get me off this boat!”

I would appreciate as many are willing, to take a few minutes and answer the questions. This will give me better insight to the nature of my research. Be as thorough or brief as you like.

Comment or you may e-mail me your responses:

Only list your name, Sailing Vessel and Home Port if you don’t mind it being published!

Thanks, Doc
