When I was a fearless young punk, I tried out for a position on the Kialoa crew. 1980 big boat series, an injury had knocked out their mid-bow guy and they needed a replacement for the rest of the season. So I went for it. And got shut down almost immediately. At 20 years old, 185 lbs of solid muscle, impeccable big-boat bow-guy credentials (including successful regattas on other maxis), references, the whole bit... I got blown off, because I was "too small" for the Kialoa crew.
Oh well. I'm not bitter. Much.
