    whats up with West Marine?

    Lol wut? Lauderdale is the super yacht capital of the world, but lots of sailing talent in that area as well. We are actually considering a move to there soon, there are actually semi-affordable homes on the waterway w/ a dock, unlike the Gables down here in Miami-Dade.

    Online Prescription Eyeglass Retailer?

    Agreed. I have Prada and Kaenon polarized prescription sunglasses that were paid for with an employer funded health reimbursement account. Both 8 years old and going strong. For regular eyeglasses, the differences appear much more minute-- I have plastic Prada regular eyeglasses that appear to be the same or even lower quality than these Zennis. I also have a pair of Cartier eyeglasses made of platinum and african wood that were like $1400 (one of my kids stepped on em and snapped em, and they appear un-fixable. Cartier refuses to sell me the part I need to fix them... Fuck you Cartier!) Again, all of these were paid for with somebody else's $. These high end eyeglasses would not be worth the cash if it was my own $ I was spending. The sunglasses? Yes, I suppose I would say they were worth the money, although they were outrageously expensive with the high-end lenses I chose. Would be much cheaper to just get contact lenses and wear non-prescription glasses over them.

    I very briefly worked at the WM on Townsend street in SF (across from PacBel park) in the early 2000's, mainly for the discounts and such. The manager was a weird old retired coast-guard hard ass, total dick. I think it was towards the end of my third week he asked me to clean the bathroom. I said, no thank you and walked out, and my WM career was over. LOL

    Living Aboard in Caribbean

    Setting aside the whole Covid shitshow, assuming things get back to normal... what are the best places to live aboard in the Caribbean? I do have kids, so safety is key. bonus points for places near cities with direct flights to miami. Boat will be 45-50ft beneateau-ish (but hopefully something beefier if i can get the cash together) I know this is a very general question, we are open to potential marina or living on the hook or mooring options. The logistics of storm season are of course front of mind as well...

    BYC Mackinac - Time to Pull the Plug?

    If the GPYC and Bayview had a love child, it would be DYC. Is the Scot fleet still going there or what?

    Spent a day at the pool a year or 2 ago, it's a lovely club still. The harbor is currently packed. The club is doing quite well from what I understand.
