    The only time you've been fucked was the day you bought your boat.

    When I was a little kid in sailing school it was awesome when the big boats got close. Real close. Just sayin'....

    Sailed the Colgate 26 working for Offshore Sailing School. Put more hours and more abuse in a month than an owner may in a lifetime. Zero maintenance. A plus was the rudder. It is speced for a 30-footer. Bulletproof. Used to sail the boat at speed, turn hard up and then pull the tiller hard to windward, perpendicular across the boat. Absolute quick stop. I enjoyed the boat. Not so much the short wing keel version. Dave Ellis

    Is it too soon to start a Laser Classic class?

    The 1860s called and want their flag and freed slaves back.

    Innovators' dilemma! I'm glad someone is making a move before the world moves on. The Laser hull is a classic, and a new rig can give untold number of hulls a new life.

    Jeebus. All of my besties are bartenders. All are smarter than most men I've met. One very wealthy guy I know sez, "Crab, while men are sleeping, women are planning, scheming, and conniving." One other old pfart said when we finally get a woman pres is when we'll have one payer health care. Makes sense to me and kudos to HRC for giving it a go. What I really like about aoc is her willingness to add some fucking transparency to the day-by-day crap we all know goes on. If Rump can be pres, AOC can be pres in my book. I'm one of those confident guys that can dance. The one leaving with the babe. Just sayin.

    I’m positive that the entire Obama family would have staffed the kitchen had a shutdown threatened a traditional meal honoring student athletes. It’s in little moments like this or offering an umbrella to shield a lady from the rain how excellent our last first family was. Thanks for everything, Barrack & Michelle. I am proud of your service to your nation.

    Our friend WP recently spotted GITANA V in Long Beach, CA, and took some pix. She was designed for Baron Edmund de Rothschild and built at A&R in 1971. One day in the early 1980s, my father got a call from the US Coast Guard, who informed him that GITANA had been seized off Southern California for smuggling drugs from South America, and that he could buy the boat at a federal auction if he so wished.

    Why? We don’t even know if that’s the culprit. Perhaps the boat has been sold since then. Perhaps that boat bought the sail used off Wired. Perhaps the owner wasn’t on the boat. At least get the facts before trashing someone publicly. Once we actually know the offenders, then we can have some fun!

    When the healthcare industry isn't adjusted for income -- which it isn't -- it becomes a tool to prolong the life of the wealthy and shorten the life of the poor, so they no longer become a cost to the wealthy once they are too old to support the manufacturing and service economies. Everyone pays for healthcare. Some people pay 1% of their annual income, some pay 80% of their annual income, because the price of healthcare is negatively correlated to personal income.

    I'm not pretending to argue whether or not this power is Constitutional. The Supreme Court has ruled it is. So, yes, I am making a moral objection not one based on my understanding of the law. I do recognize my naivete in this matter. Making this an argument about who is a dishonest liberal turns this into a shit fight instead of an honest debate about whether the Constitution should be amended to change it.

    Yes, I'm good with the diddling, spunking, and lying about it just like you're good with the diddling, spunking, and lying about it except that I'm honest about it.

    Is it karma or serendipity that a Cheoy Lee washes up on Bob Perry's beach?
