    Brain Trust Calls The Cops on Whale

    My ex, from Victoria, didn't believe me either. I couldn't believe she couldn't hear when ppl sounded just like her. But I proved it to her over and over in bars, and public places in HK, Washington, Cali, Arizona, and even Mexico. Would ask her if she thought those guys were canadian, maybe even put in alberta or bc. In the beginning she would say, yeah right. Pretty soon she would just know I was right. Now, I dont believe I can hear the accent in every Canadian, no matter where they may be from, some of you I cant detect. And I'm always surprised when someone says they are from Toronto, because I havent detected anything. I grew up in Whatcom County. My step mother is Canadian. Vancouver has always been my home away from home. So think its more a matter of exposure and paying attention.

    Brain Trust Calls The Cops on Whale

    And FYI, when I say Canadian, I do mean someone from Canada. I've noticed if you are from Toronto I cant detect any accent. But if you are from BC, Saskatchewan or Alberta I can nail it well over 50% which province your from. The Maritimes are an easy one.

    Thats easy, just because you can see one from the other doesn't mean they don't have a different accent. Accent is not measured in miles. (Or KM's for htat matter)

    Do Mount Gay Rum Hats Stink?

    NO not rum punch. All that sugar will jumpstart the bacteria. Bathe it in 151. Strait. That will kill off the bacteria and not leave any nutrients behind for those bugs to re-colonate the cloth.

    Jeanne Socrates - nonstop solo RTW 2018

    I may get corrected on some of this. ButI should be close. The waves on the straight of Georgia are relatively short period compared to eaves of the same height on the open seas, mostly. These 13' 8sec period she is hitting now though are more like our waves in the straights of Georgia. Which makes them steep. 10' eaves on a 12 sec period ate very gentle. 10' 6 second will be much steeper. Take a sheet of graph paper and use the horizontal for period and the vertical for height. Look at some weather buoys and make some graph of what they are reporting. I don't think it will show you exactly the right pitch of the waves. But it will give u some idea of the relative change. Graph some.conditions you are familiar with and then some new ones and u should be visualize the difference.

    Mold in the wood?

    I second the lemon oil. Used it on the freedom 30 interior after it had been left sitting for some time. Looks wonderful! And super easy, no mixing of anything and u don't have to do anything else at all yo it afterwards. It works great to remove minor water stains and other marks too. I wound up just lightly wiping down the pretty much the entire interior woodwork. It looked like new.

    Vodka and Ambien use by a crew member

    I was almost put to death when, with a little after race buzz on, I (over)filled the holding tank with fresh water on my buddies brand new boat. What a buzz kill. fortunately shallow bilge boat and it was literally only a few of weeks old so the cleanup was not as nearly s bad as it could have been. That was almost a decade ago. I'm sure when I see the skipper next I'll catch shit about it yet again. He is probably ready to strangle me as he reads this.
  13. The perfect boat for u is a Unicorn 13'

    Vodka and Ambien use by a crew member

    Did you use the right pronoun? Sounds just like my ex-wife. Ambien (she is canuk so she took zopiclone, but same category fo drug) and alcohol is an xtra gnarly mix. She could black out on two glasses of wine, well plus the med.And she did, about 3x week.
