Yes, I too think about heading out to sea. Then I remember what it was really like: Salty food, 10 second showers (wet down, soap up, rinse off. Use no more than 1-2 minutes of water!), being surrounded for weeks by the vast endless landless horizon, and hanging out with crazy shipmates who talked to imaginary cats. Of course, I'm sure it's more romantic to be on a small sailboat bouncing around the heavy seas rather than on an aircraft carrier.
note: The reason we could stay at sea for weeks is that we would be resupplied while underway.
