    Mythical Front Page Upgrade

    ps: bring back the "Meet Sexy East European Women" ads. I'm guessing they pop-up on one's past browsing history? lmfao

    Mythical Front Page Upgrade

    What's the consensus on Scooter's new FP? He's been promising a refresh for years and finally, here in 19 it's here! Personally, I was expecting something more...how do I say this...professional? The only improvement I'm seeing is the former numerous dead-end links under the title have been reduced to what we might actually use. The overall graphic layout and new For Sale forums are...well...more like Sears than say Amazon...dated. My guess is he hired some local kid going to Southwestern Community College web-design program and it's his first paying gig. Anyway, what say he anarchist? Cool? Meh? Homo?

    Brexit, WTF

    Amazing to see a first world country voluntarily attempting to become a 3rd world "shithole" (Trump, 2018) again. The most pine for the days of the Darks Ages. https://www.bbc.com/news/business-46338585

  5. Red Deer Alberta? Where in the great Northwest heaven did you sail that B25 prairie schooner? Google maps shows you nearest "body" of significant water 1,000 or more klicks in any direction.

    Brexit, WTF

    The Regressives in UK just cost their tiny island coalition (hardly a "nation") a TRILLION greenbacks in money fleeing for EU. In euros, thats 800 MILLION. I suppose in British pounds something like 600 MILLION. Haha. Let's see Teresa May walk that back.

    Who killed MR. CLEAN?

    Life killed Clean. Older, daddier, marrieder. In other words, just another one of us taxpaying, diaper-changing, honey-doing dud.
  9. Nope. I have no problem beating my own shadow consistently.
  10. Yup. Great concept, ruined by all the pricks from big boats and daddy warbuck$ jumping into the class and making it the estate of millionaires to compete. The J24 is now enjoying it's 4th generation of owners, all low budget Corithians, looking for a weekend buzz and not much more. Skip the 70 and go straight Back to the Future J22 or J24.

    Everglades Challenge 2019

    WTF may I ask is that beast? Looks like a hermaphrodite: International Canoe with ironing boards cobbled on.
  12. Who woulda thought one of the biggest "J Fest" going in North America is on Prince Edward Island in late mid December? I would have thought all the boats would be on the hard in shrink-wrap till April. Across about 5 divisions, nothing but J Boats to be found: https://www.regattanetwork.com/clubmgmt/applet_registrant_list.php?regatta_id=16004&custom_report_id=86

    Are we(racing sailors) a culture of cheaters?

    Look no further than the White House were Person of Interest #1 resides. He got there by a crooked election, rigged by a century-long arch-enemy but garnered 48% of popular vote. I think that pretty clearly answers your question. (first, let me say Scooter put the words in my fingertips and second, I know, I know, take it to PA).
