Hello Richard,


You enjoying the Jessica Wilbur show? Neals off his meds again.


Cannibal is tied up in front of my old building in El Lago, right
where RedCloud use to be moored, she is a pretty boat.
You interested? *I know the boat and the owner if you need any more
info.


Check out this hull:http://www.sailboatlistings.com/view/16201
She's trashed inside, but might be a good project boat.

Joe Joe?


New lap top. Scrolling issue's. I decided to post the link after
signing, and signed again not seeing my sig on the screen.


He seems pretty reasonable to me


Sure..whatever

Hi Joe,

That would be a beautiful ship if restored.
LOVE that foredeck.
My whole boat would fit up there.
Amazing what you can do with a boat when it gets big enough.

But while I can do the work and have the time and inclination,
my pockets just don't run that deep...

If you see anybody on Cannibal, tell them we are admiring her?



Will do

Joe

Wow... pretty boat, but isn't it a pain to get in an out from where
the big wheel is? Seems like they could have made it simpler.

A washer/dryer on a sailboat??? That's weird!

Doesn't the boat ever stop somewhere? Seems like all you have to do is
pull in somewhere and deal with it.

What happens in the middle of the ocean? You're going to do laundry in
your bring-along system? Seems at odds with sailing some how.




I can't help loving your sensible attitude.

You are 100% correct. Some of these lubbers don't know what sailing's all
about, even when they've abused (as opposed to used) a sailboat for years.
Some, like those who carry shoreside-type washer/driers and run them when
sailing (or when anchored) are just plain pathetic.

When sailing one needs minimal clothing. To wash that clothing, when
necessary, all that's needed is a bucket full of salt water, a good
detergent that bubbles up in salt water and bleach. Hand scrubbing some
shorts and t-shirts takes little time and one hand-rinse with fresh water
will rid them of salt residue so they dry properly. Drying them in the wind
and sun takes less than a half hour.

Instead, some so-called sailors load their boats up with all sorts of
lubberly crap that requires lubberly amount of energy and I'm convinced they
do so because they really are AFRAID to sail and live the sailing life so
they sail a house, apartment or condo instead.

I wouldn't mind this sort of stupidity except for the fact that it spreads
out from their boats like a giant sewage slick. The noise of generators 24/7
to run all this crap impinges upon the peace, quiet and clean air of
anchorages everywhere. And, these fools actually think they are sailors.
They think they are cool and they actually brag about their selfish and
anti-social activities on Usenet.

They are disgusting, selfish and ignorant, bothersome losers.

Jessica, Joe is one of those lubberly, wannabe-type sailors about whom I
refer when saying some are fearful to really sail so they attempt to load up
a boat with "all the lubberly contraptions" like washer/dryer combos so they
can feel comfortable because they are addicted to the land and the sailing
life is anathema to them.

Joe's erstwhile boat, "Red Cloud" was prematurely abandoned in a cold front
in the Gulf of Mexico and he and his rank amateur crew were airlifted off by
the Coast Guard and his boat was abandoned to her own devices and eventually
sunk. Joe is a little chicken, IMO. Certainly is no sailor. If his skills
were 1/10th as big as his mouth he might amount to something. As it stands
now he's a disgrace. Why, the moron doesn't even know the proper sized
American flag to fly and he flies it in the wrong place. Nothing screams
incompetence like disrespect for one's flag.

The bigger they are the harder they fall. To wit: "Red Cloud."

Red Cloud never had a chance mostly because of the big, inept ego of her
master.

I've heard of two suggestions... actually, three.

1. A big bucket into which you put water, detergent and the offending
items (they're likely to be offending the nose of others after a while,
I'm sure). You then 'tread' them for a while, like the French used to
with grapes.

2. All that needs washing ends up in the shower stall. Whoever takes a
shower 'treads' the clothes as they do so. I am not certain of the
efficacy of this method.

3. Small mesh netting (small enough that your smalls don't go through
the holes) from which you make a bag, into which you put your laundry.
The neting bag is then towed behind the boat for a while.

Found this the other day too: URL:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t11WC1lG_Po

As I previously posted, you demonstrate your ignorance of the Real
Cruising lifestyle yet again. the Real Cruiser, i.e., one who actually
makes cruises, rather then an aborted "voyage" around the harbour -
assuming that the wind isn't blowing too strong and nor to lightly -
by necessity requires more then your "minimal clothing".

Say a "cruise" from Singapore to Japan and onward through the
Aleutians, Alaska and onward, ultimately to Mexico and then through
the Canal to the Caribbean, north to Canada and so finally to England
and eventually returned to Asia.

A Cruise made by a personal friend with his 36 ft. steel hull sloop,
over the past few years.

So Willie-boy, all your so called Sailorman experience is somewhat
lacking in both scope, and distance.

Instead, some so-called sailors load their boats up with all sorts of
lubberly crap that requires lubberly amount of energy and I'm convinced they
do so because they really are AFRAID to sail and live the sailing life so
they sail a house, apartment or condo instead.


And for what periods have you lived the "sailing life"? Was it last
Sunday when you planned the "cruise' around the bay.... and aborted
because the wind wasn't blowing the correct velocity for your
tastes.... I wonder what you'd do if you made a real voyage and hit a
period of little wind when half way from Langkawi to Kochi, say, as
another friend did a year ago?

I wouldn't mind this sort of stupidity except for the fact that it spreads
out from their boats like a giant sewage slick. The noise of generators 24/7
to run all this crap impinges upon the peace, quiet and clean air of
anchorages everywhere. And, these fools actually think they are sailors.
They think they are cool and they actually brag about their selfish and
anti-social activities on Usenet.


Again you exhibit your minimal experience in actually cruising, as
apposed to reading magazines. In the last 15 years I have rarely
anchored in a harbout where there were more then two or three boats
and never... let me repeat that NEVER .... anchored anywhere that I
could even hear a generator.

Ah Willie-boy, perhaps if you would get out into the world you'd
discover what a sailing life style is all about as apposed to your
overheated imagination.

They are disgusting, selfish and ignorant, bothersome losers.


Wilbur Hubbard

Cheers,

Bruce

Some, like those who carry shoreside-type washer/driers and run them when

Seems like you couldn't do much if it's running either... just sit
there an listen to the noise. Gross. What's the point.

When sailing one needs minimal clothing. To wash that clothing, when
necessary, all that's needed is a bucket full of salt water, a good
detergent that bubbles up in salt water and bleach. Hand scrubbing some
shorts and t-shirts takes little time and one hand-rinse with fresh water

and sun takes less than a half hour.


Well, I guess that depends on the temperature. I'd want layers if
things were cold, but in warm weather, just shorts and a t top. Do you
make your guests wear shoes? My friend told me he does so nobody
breaks toes. I hate wearing shoes if I don't have to. Sorry if that
bursts your bubble, but I'm not a high-heels sort of person. I mean I
can, but I just don't.

Instead, some so-called sailors load their boats up with all sorts of
lubberly crap that requires lubberly amount of energy and I'm convinced they
do so because they really are AFRAID to sail and live the sailing life so

Yeah, yeah! That's what I was thinking... all that noise. I sure as
heck don't want to listen to something running while I'm sipping my
daiquiri.

They are disgusting, selfish and ignorant, bothersome losers.


Sounds like you've had your run-ins with them. It must be nice if you
can find a quiet spot.

Bummer that he lost his boat... Did they make him pay for his airlift?
Seems like things would be a lot better if people paid for their
mistakes... or at least had to make some kind of partial payment. It
might cut down on the nonsense.

Can you believe it... I had this flag on the back of my bike seat and
it got torn off by some jerk as I rode by. That happened last
summer... right on the beach run. Fortunately, there was a bike cop
following behind me (didn't realize he was there for 1/2 mile, but he
didn't bust me for speeding - yeah, they have speed limits for bikes
on the beach run), so he made him give it back or go to jail. The pole
was all bent up, so now it doesn't work.
