    What is this mythical "Port Huron" race that people speak of?

    Your 30 something friends cant socialize with people older than them? Sound socially inept... A 30 something may be capable of socializing with his or her grandparents and their friends but may just choose not to do so on a regular basis. My crew ranges in age from 16-75, roughly 14 people in the pool (most in their 20s or 40s) and we have a pretty good time on a bi-weekly+ basis. But if it is so hard for 30 somethings because they do not want to be exposed to someone 10 years older than them, then buy a boat and staff it with 30 somethings... Quite frankly, I don't want 30 somethings on my boat because they tend to have families and wives and a delusion that they should be doing something "more interesting" and become flakes. The best crew is HOT CHICKS 22-27 and then SOON TO BE DIVORCED GUYS 40+ if you want people to show up. Fixed it.

    Ritchie Geoghan's work is equivalent to Waterline. For what it's worth, several years ago I looked into redoing the bottom on a J24 and got a quote from Torreson's over in Muskegon. It was pretty good, a fair bit less than Waterline System's standard quote for J24 bottom rebuild. We never did do the work, we sold the boat. I had taken a bog boat over there for some mid-season keel work the year before and they did a knock out job for about 1/3rd what the owner was thinking it was going to cost. I would consider getting a quote from them.

    Blubs, was he a dinghy sailor or just a big boat kinda guy? How well did he trim a headsail? Was he circumsized?

    All this verbal masturbating started with a gripe about some 18% charge getting added to some guys lunch after attending some free seminar at Chicago Yacht Club. How did it end up about who does the better volunteering and how to smoke cigarettes like some old timey Dickens character? So yes on a couple CnC 30s but nothing on VX Ones?

    It's not just this thread, all of SA is a wasteland. What is "bloviate"? Any VX Ones in town? Coming to town? It's not just this thread, all of SA is a wasteland. What is "bloviate"? Any VX Ones in town? Coming to town?

    This was amusing now it's annoying. If an out of town boat comes in for both the Colors regatta and the NOODS, 2 weeks later (with ACWS the weekend in between), is a good option for keeping the boat in Chic ago to motor down to skyway yacht works and just get hauled for about 9 days? Thus avoiding the congestion (and possible lack of slips) during the ACWS?

    June 10-12, normally right about the same time as the NOODs. Hmmmmmmm

    Who is graduating to the ranks of Waukegan Race Raccoon? That's the lesser known the equivalent of a Mac Race goat, after 10 Waukegan races completed. It's in memory of Tome Keegan <pause and bow head in moment of silence>. Grinder, what's on the menu, 6 slabs of ribs? Brendo
