Erm.. ok terrific. 

 

You're likely going to wake up in a few hours and wonder who taped up your boat.

 

It's ok. This happens sometimes.  

 

Put some lifelines on that thing before the real hilarity ensues.

Funny. Would be better with arrows pointing which way dip and tack is; which would mean it should read <-- TACK/DIP -->

No better would have been a line mid ships with tack and dip written either side of it with arrows.

Generally, any tacklers are a problem.  There isn't much difference between port and starboard tacklers.  OTOH, the odd curvaceous blonde tackler might be ok.  In any case, the safest thing is to put down your anker.

An´ker

n. 1. A liquid measure in various countries of Europe. The Dutch anker, formerly also used in England, contained about 10 of the old wine gallons, or 8½ imperial gallons.

 

 

Ten gallons of wine and an odd, curvaceous blonde tackler? How do you get her to let go of the anker and tackle you instead?

Aye, that's the crux, innit.  One must make sure she lifts the anker a few times first. Then, when her grip appears to be loosening....

Hot Rod has been throwing casks of wine in SF Bay? Weird.

Sorry to hear that your tackle is being ignored in port but that sounds like a personal problem

I was wondering when we'd have full-contact sailing. Much better than having a trip to the room.

Still lots of life left in that line.It was a jib sheet for 5 years before being demoted to dockline.

Actually, wouldn't putting them on backwards have the maximum competitive advantage? ;)

 

< --   DIP    |    TACK  -->

 

At least until they miss the dip ;)

Docked next to an "S-18 Exotic - Sun Party" pontoon boat, pink dock lines that the rats have done in, and yellow tape on the bow?  Sounds like a cry for help... move up the lake, we can save you!

Wouldn't putting them on the other side of the boat be more fun? See how many people would assume it was right and tack away?

Shark sailors already have enough problems telling left from right.

 

That being said a lot of bigger boat owners have trouble with sharks having right of way over them. I LOVE it when they try to drive over us saying things like "We're in a race with XXX so you should give way", I've used the "Go ahead, just remember your paint job is worth more than my hull." hail on those jerks on more than one occasion.
