I'd sail with you anytime (if you'd have me).



Death wish?

No.

A chance to sail with an experienced captain - and enjoy some
good coffee at the same time.




He's experienced alright but I'd call it dubious experience. Not many of us
real sailors would be proud of having experienced a helicopter rescue during
the passage of a routine cold front due solely to the fact that we didn't
know how to cope with it.

As for the coffee, you'd BETTER enjoy it as it costs upwards of 20 bucks a
pound and only an idiot would pay that outrageous price. Besides, calling
coffee 'green' has got to be the ultimate joke on 'greenies.' It's got to
be grown, transported, stored, ordered, shipped to the consumer, roasted,
ground and then brewed. Guess what, every step of the way this produces CO2.

Joe is disengenuous. His customers are suckers.

Anytime Richard. If you are ever around Houston come on by.

As far as ditching from RedCloud it was a people call. Including the
request and consideration of USCG responders who were very concerned
about a night time operation and forecast.

I've had far worse days at sea, than the day we ditched RedCloud. I'm
not proud of ditching her, and you are right, it was one of the
hardest calls I ever had to make. I knew the second I made that call
she was going down, I'd never see her again. But you measure the cost
and make the decision. The old adage the Captn always goes down with
the ship only applies when the ship and it's cargo or mission is of
more value than the life lost. RedCloud was a nice boat, home..... but
not worth the risk of life and limb.

I'm proud no one was hurt, RedCloud had all the proper equipment and
was ready for a worst case event. We all had the training and skills
needed. We did deliver a huge cargo of shoes, boots , musical
instruments, schools supplies all donated by local friends and
citizens for the children of San Pedro. And life goes on. I'm over
it and learned much. Things you dont get over are friends hurt or
killed. I often think about a 19 yo deckhand that had his hand sucked
into a turbo charger. He made it back to the wheelhouse in time to
show me what happened, in a joking way before going into shock. That
was a bad day at sea. I can think of many more bad days than I care
to share. Anyone who spends a lifetime working boats has bad day
stories. But as you know, or will find out, the sea has a way of
making it all worth the risk.

The support for our advanced Eco-Sailing Coffee venture is growing
fast, soon we will reach the all important tipping point and be at
full hull speed. Even in these down times our coffee is exploding in
sales here because it is the best, freshest coffee around, and cheaper
than most including Starbucks in our local grocery stores.

At a retail price..our most expensive certified Antiqua "RedClouds
Finest" sells for 11.99 an honest good ol pound. The run of the mill
Starbucks sells for 8.99 for 12 oz. Our most popular "Boat Roast"
sells retail for 7.99. a pound and it's a delicious Costa Rican Tres
Rio's bean that we roast fresh and pack warm and rush to the store.
It's smooth as velvet and spicey good.


A ship in port (like yours) is safe.
But that's not what ships are for...

--

If it has a busted boom held together with bailing wire and sewer
plumbing pipe and only a bucket head.. it is suited better to stay
put. Neal's knows his boat best.

Ya know Willburrrr Joe just might be successful. After spending a year
in south land I can say without hesatation: southerners dont know ****
bout coffee or beer. Everyone Ive worked with so far LOVE that
Community Coffee and think that Starbucks is crap. Personally im not
that fond of Starbucks either but it beats that southern Folgers...

Christ just look at Morgan City, LA. There aint NO i repete NO place
to get drinkable coffee. Its all dishwater belly wash.
SO what does that mean???? Those fools down south will think that Red
cloud coffee is really good stuff; Go figure. Have fun Joe but dont
thiink if a bunch Bubbas like your stuff it will fly anyplace else.

Bob, with all that love you and Joe share, you two should really get a
place together.

Hey Bob,

Went aboard the Edison Chouest last week and they mentioned a couple
boats in Fouchon. They have 4 working here, nice boats. They were
buying grocerys and we Ioaded the cook with coffee samples, you should
jump from that rustbucket 4 pointer to a nice boat.

My sweetheart did a hitch on the Edison as an AB.

What was the name of the Chouest boats down in Fouchon?

Joe
