Willie-boy, as I've mentioned a number of times. I'm in Thailand and
you are in S. Florida..

And, who is the sailor?
Cheers,



Certainly not the so-called sailor who only managed to complete about half
of his way-too-lofty goals. Now he's stuck in a third-world backwater
because of it, too fearful to carry on. Beaten by a voyage he lacks the
necessary skills to complete. Not as pathetic as poor Joe, who failed in
close proximity to his home port, but not admirable either.

Failure is defined by not reaching a goal. You failed. I did not. I have met
every goal I have set for myself to date.

Given that I have lived for more than half of my life in Asia I wonder
where you came up with your misconception that I ever intended to go
further.

But of course you don't have misconceptions you simply make it up,
unfortunately your blathering is simply "ignorance in action'.

Wilbur: The proper length for your dinghy oars is short enough to fit
inside the boat.

Every other waterman in the world: "Oars should be long enough to
reach the water".

Willie: Publishes direction how to steal from WalMart.

The rest of us: "Is this guy so stupid to steal the cheap stuff that
Wally World sells for hooch?"

Willie declines to go sailing when the wind is below 5 MPH. Later in
the say it picks up to 7 mph and he decides to head for shore - the
wind is too strong for proper sailing.

I could go on but why bother. One guy abandons his boat believing he
and his crew are in danger. Willie sits at home and slanders the guy
based on a picture on the TV. A real show of the 'sailorboy's' real
colors. Does he say I was within 10 miles of you and didn't even
bother closing the cabin hatch? Nope, he says he saw it on the TV.

Willie the sailorman. Just ask him and he'll tell you where you went
wrong and never, never, backs up his assertions with even an iota of
experience. Willie the fool is a bit closer to the center of the
target.

Nope Willie, as a critic of marine activities you are about as
qualified as Winnie the Pooh. Willie the Pooh?

Cheers,

Bruce

That is why you live on a 500 dollar boat, crap in buckets, and steal
batteries from Wal-Mart.
You set the bar so low, failure is not an option. Pathetic at best.

And by the way my boat has 4 sinks, two heads with two showers and 3
staterooms.
I did not have to beg, borrow or steal anything to get it.

Joe


Overkill.

Willie the Pooh doesn't use all that effeminate stuff.... doesn't
****, shower or shave..... at least part of the reason he doesn't have
a girl on that boat (except for the cat).

Cheers,

Bruce

Oh.. whew.. I thought you thought I was thinking he was the reasonable

I did at first . . .

I get all confused any time I run into an intelligent woman who actually

Wilbur Hubbard


Hey so wait... are you Wil or are you Greg? Totally confused unless
you have a spoofer? The header info is different. I hate spoofers.




Wilbur = Greg = Capt. Neal. That's common knowledge. I am no "spoofer". Just
have a couple different NSP accounts in case one or the other goes on the
blink.

Wilbur Hubbard


Oh... ok. So, you're a Captain? That's cool. So, should I call you
Neal or Wil... sort of like Wil, but it's your name.



Nope. You say "Neal Willie", and crack the whip.

Sorry, but I didn't understand even 1/2 of this. Maybe one should not
go sailing if you can't deal with the issues that come up, short of
being run over by a tanker or something?


Sounds pretty simple. Can you deal with a tsunami arrives with no
warning and kills some 5,000 people in your immediate area? A 60 MPH
squall that hits you at night?

It is what might be called a feat in simplification to say "Maybe one

short of being run over by a tanker or something?" Actually being run
over by a tanker is probably the least likely thing to happen.

snipped some repeat


Tell me about it. If I want to keep my job, I need to keep my mouth
shut. I put a small "Support our troops" ribbon-sticker on the car I'm
assigned and someone in the office complained to my boss. I asked what
the problem was with it, and he told me that "while you have the right
to free speech, you can't have the sticker on an official car." Ok,
except that he had a "Mystery Spot" sticker on his (it's a place in
northern cal that's an optical illusion). No comment from him.


Yes, the old, liberal double standard rears it's ugly head. Do as I say -
not as I do and all that. . . Try to find a G-Spot sticker (apolitical just
like his) for your car and when he tells you to get rid of it be sure to
have a photo of his "Mystery Spot" sticker then hit him up with a sexual
harassment lawsuit.

Atta girl! I used to have a little TV years ago but I got so mad at how
much of a waste of space it was that I ended up tossing it overboard in
the
Gulf Stream one fine day. Haven't missed TV since. The little snippets I
get
of it in public places such as stores and restaurants reconfirms my
observation that TV is the main reason why much of the American public is
a
bunch of stupid, brainwashed, mindless consumers and hypocrite drones.


All you get is Olbermann (that God he's off!) or blood and guns
nonsense. I can't listen to any of them honestly.



Never even saw that Rube. Just heard Rush describing how worthless he is and
didn't they just fire his sorry arse? Is Olberman the one who got the tingle
right up his leg when listening to Obama?


The only place to get somewhat accurate and unbiased information is the
radio. A shortwave radio receiver is a necessity so one can listen to
radio
around the world to get an unslanted view of what's going on. Even Radio
Havana has more accurate reporting than the Voice of America or the
Corporation for Public Broadcast - a taxpayer supported arm of the
Democrat
Party.


I don't have a shortwave. Don't you have to have a license to use it?
Ham?


Only if you transmit.

You can listen to any frequency without a license thus the recommendation of
a receiver and not a transceiver. I hate Ham and SSB radios aboard yachts.
This is yet another anomaly that some pretenders must install because they
need the Binky to remind them of their preferred way of life - a lubberly
abode ashore.

snippage

What you just said applies almost EVERYWHERE. Few things are more pathetic
than the pretenders living in the Marinas or keeping their boats there
where
most of them rot away going unused year after year, just taking up space
and
making the Marina look like some floating, trailer park trash haven. It is
a
general truism that the bigger the boat the less it sails. You hit the
nail
right on the head with that one, JessicaB. Just look at all the
thick-as-an-arm, power cords, hoses, dock lines, cable TV
hook-ups,fenders,
etc. that must be dealt with. Daunting. I can be underway in two minutes
just by tying a float to my mooring lines and dropping it into the water.


Well I guess if you have a boat for entertainment or something, then I
guess it's ok to be stuck next to the other guy who's doing the same
thing. I even saw a LCD or LED TV on one of them. Seems dumb. Seems
like if you want to entertain people, do it in your house or rent a
hotel venue.


Funny that you mentioned the flat-screened TVs. You'd be surprised at how
often a discussion of flat-screened TVs comes up here. It's so ludicrous
reading so-called sailors REAL priorities - television. Some of them even
have satellite receivers aboard. All the more reason for them to run smelly
and noisy generators multiple hours each and every day. Anything but sailing
yet they claim to be sailors.

snippage


What kind of work do you do?


I'm part of the building dept. inspector's office. Oh look, that pipe
is suppose to be gray not white, and shocker... it's an inch off for
the bury depth. Here's a violation for you. Oh, I'm sorry, even though
it was done to code, you didn't pull a permit for that portable hot
tub, so we have to red-flag it. Some of it I get, but most of it is
just for money for the city. Got off early today. I faked a headache.



Ha ha. Women sure get a lot of mileage out of the good ole headache. LOL!
Boy, yours is a thankless job. Everybody hates a building/construction
inspector but you guys are necessary. Otherwise builders would cheat to cut
costs and shoddy, substandard and dangerous construction would be the norm.

snippage


Sadly, there isn't much one can do other than weighing anchor and moving
someplace else far enough away where there aren't any inconsiderate morons
within earshot. You can't reason with people who can't even understand
they
are not wanted in the area and are acting like Neanderthals. They have
this
attitude that the whole world revolves around them and everybody else can
just bugger off.


That doesn't seem right. I mean if you were there first... oh well.
Seems like a pain to raise the anchor. It must be pretty big even for
a smaller boat? It's got to hold all the weight in place, even if
there are waves and wind. Maybe two smaller ones are better than one
big one?



You're correct, it isn't right but that's life. One of the many good things
about a functionally-sized sailboat is the smaller and manageable ground
tackle. I carry three different anchors at the ready on bow rollers --
22-pound Danforth Hi-Tensile, 25-pound CQR, and 25-pound Herreschoff
yachtsman anchor. Each have about ten feet of stainless steel chain affixed.
I usually set two anchors Bahamian style. Being a strong, handsome and
virile man, it is nothing for me to weigh a couple of 25-pound anchors and
move away from some inconsiderate and noisy jerk's hazard to my health and
welfare. I don't particularly like doing it but one must often take matters
in one's own hands to better one's circumstances and the inconsiderate
people be damned.

Maybe I'll invite JessicaB for a little cruise when she needs a break from
the California lifestyle hassle. That girl seems to have ten times more
potential to be a competent sailor than either you or Joe. She sure has some
admirable mental qualities and is no liberal hypocrite like you two.

ONE of the attributes of a proper-length dinghy oar is that it fits into the
length of the dinghy. Get a clue and stop twisting my words.

And, whatever happened to your kill file? It seems to have as many holes in
it as "Red Cloud's" transom. LOL!

In your case, definitely. I'm sure the water around your dock is way too
shallow for a tanker to approach within a mile. LOL!
