Let me count the ways.


1) Joe of Red Cloud infamy
2) Bruce at the Bangkok dock
3) Capt. J.G. the netKKKop
4) Bobsprit the dreamer
5) Doug King the trawler queen
6) Sea Hag the chronic builder
7) Katysails the blind (in more ways than one)
8) Dave the lawyer who doesn't even own a boat
9) KCL Lewis the admiral
10) Bob the wannabe deck hand


10) Bob. What a pitiful character! Here's what he wrote recently: "I am
eager to start sweeping floors and scrubbing heads." What kind of a loser
has that disgusting prospect as a goal in life? You are no sailor unless and
until you sail, Bob. Doing janitor work on a work boat doesn't make you a
sailor. It makes you a common unskilled laborer - get a clue.
Wilbur Hubbard



My Dearist Willbur:

Humm, I notice that Skip and Lydia are not listed por que?

I belive any ships work, no mater how humble, is honerable.
I will be at sea where all good mariners belong.

Bob


Naw, you don't have to apologize. After all, Wilbur is a meter reader
for the water company. Can there be any more "common" and "unskilled"
occupation then that?

A deck hand on a boat is a nuclear scientist compared to a "meter
maid".
Cheers,

Bruce

For obvious reasons, my ultra-fast MacGregor 26 wasn't on the list,
despite the rantings of some sicko anti-Mac posters.

I'd be happy to add it for you. Is it ultra fast with or without the 50
horse?

When it's on the trailer going down the Xway....

"And then again, when you sit at the helm of your little ship on a clear
night, and gaze at the countless stars overhead, and realize that you are
quite alone on a wide, wide sea, it is apt to occur to you that in the
general scheme of things you are merely an insignificant speck on the
surface of the ocean; and are not nearly so important or as self-sufficient
as you thought you were. Which is an exceedingly wholesome thought, and one
that may effect a permanent change in your deportment that will be greatly
appreciated by your friends."- James S. Pitkin

You hanging out in the Bahamas is a thing to be greatly admired, he said
recently. I think all you have to do to get back on is leave.
