    Nobody Wants To Take Up Sailing

    Sailing, at least on the Chesapeake can be deadly boring in the summer. I invited friends (a few days in advance cuz everyones busy), and occasionally we would hit that great day with 12-15 knots and just having a ball actually going places. More likely fluky 5 knots barely pushing my 4ksb. Sure we drank and talked and had fun but it was 5 knots in a 4ksb. People were happy to go but happier they didn't own a boat. I ticked it off my list, learned to sail in 14, bought a boat in 15, beer canned it 16 and 17 and 18 and sold it. It was fun, but I'm done. glad I did it, i learned alot. now I am happy to be crew 2-3 times a summer. but hey, at least I sold it some guy on ebay, who completely re-did the damn thing per below and that makes me happy. I have a habit of jack of all trades master of none. Glad I can say I know how to sail and do it somewhat competently. same with motorcycle racing, old car restoration, fly fishing, photography etc etc etc......

    “Knot” a cool pun: worst boat names ever

    My bosses boat is named "exit strategy" seeing as we've fucked up everything, got delisted and all our options aren't worth the paper they're printed on I wanted to suggest renaming it "underwater" . seems like a career limiting move however.

    NTSB releases transcript of El Faro sinking

    The thing i thought was interesting is that the article said he was a safety first kind of guy, but got fired for refusing to run a vessel down the Chesapeake with faulty steering, he then got fired, and the article intimates that perhaps he was less inclined to act on his old natural instincts of his past. He evidently had to work his way back up to captain. Did that past experience change his tolerance for conservatism is what the article briefly posits.
