Does that mean I don't get my answer?


He'll just reach into his drawer and pull out another sock.



Yeah, then we have to go through the whole "I heard he just did <something wonderous>, he seems to be a pretty smart guy" charade with another 20 post wonder before he loses his cool and flips and comes clean.

I'm still waiting for an explanation of how he flies an airplane that is 3,000 miles away, not owned by him, and without a valid FAA medical :lol: :lol: :lol:

I actually thought he had gotten some treatment and decided to enjoy life away from teh interwebs.
Danny - you are far from the first person to come to sailing later in life and be unable to persuade your wife that being offshore with you is a good idea. It happens all the time. Enjoy powerboating and quit with the endless lies about airplanes etc...............................

It's a pity that he feels it's a zero sum game, he can't be doing well unless he puts someone else down and he can't tell the difference between snappy repartee and spiteful drivel. :(

But on to more important things...

Who is Underdawg, a man (or woman) of mystery who appears, wields his(or her) banhammer, restoring sanity and calm, and disappears back into the night. :huh:

And what did Bob do with his 4 raisins on toothpicks. :P

Well, my neighbor ate one. The two girls who's Mom is a health nut never showed up. So I threw the other three "raisins on a stick" away. All I got was the mini-Michelin man. I regret no dumping my whole basket of Snickers bars into his bag along with the raisins. I sat up, listening to some nice music and ate Snickers bars and didn't sleep well at all. Considered for a while doing my own trick or treating but I didn't have any eggs.

Probably just as well Bob, it would be embarrassing to have to have your son bail you out of jail... and think of the story on the front page. :o

Then again it could of netted you an interview with Clean, him having experience with that sort of thing and all. :ph34r:

I love how his blog says "this is it" and then he keeps right on going :rolleyes:
Facing a cold dark winter of sitting around a rented cabin with no boat, I think we just might see an epic amount of posts from the tiller-tugger. A new theme seems to be "sailing is WAY harder than those magazines say it is. It is a CONSPIRACY I tell ya!"

He just doesn't understand that even those of us who are "hung like a hamster" in the nautical sense, have something to contribute to the "conversation". :P

He should have started with a smaller boat that could have been singlehanded when his better half decided that she didn't like sailing. I can rig my boat and go from trailer to sailor in 45 minutes singlehanded, store it in my driveway, and sail to Catalina if I want to on a nice weekend, or haul up to a lake, or even the PNW. :rolleyes:

I may not have radar, ssb, marpa, etc, but I daresay I have more miles under my keel than Tugboat-Taylor... mostly on the 405 but.B)

"how does a yacht designer dress?"
I suppose that depends on where you work.
For me, once a "carefull" dresser it's now flannel lined LL Bean jeans and flannel shirts.
It's a good day when my shirt is not inside out.

Jeans, polo shirt, fleece vest, and comfortable shoes, unless a client is here.

I still enjoy dressing up as The Invisible Man for halloween.

Thank you for the update. I heard that he has been married for 28 years, has owned a boat you, Timo42, and briartrptd can only dream of, has sailed a lifetime more than you, just got a Ph.D from Stanford in Applied Mathematics, is a ham radio operator, owned a farm in Oregon, has an ATP and flew for Fed Express, owned a Pitts S2A and other airplanes, has a CFII and ATP, owned a farm in Oregon, and now lives on the water on San Juan Island and has purchased a powerboat that is being built as we speak..


Yes, we've heard all that so many times before...

Even the "has purchased a powerboat Hallberg-Rassy 54 that is being built as we speak"...

So, then, one of the reasons you balked on your circumnavigation-next-year was "the oppressive heat of many of our destinations", and yet your "future travel plans include Asia (Vietnam, presumably for the prawns, you've been blathering about that place for years), India, and Africa..."

Well, some of those tour busses are pretty well air-conditioned, I suppose...

Oh, and you have "documented proof" that you have sailed as far south as Eureka, and as far north as Alaska?

Yeah, I'll believe that when I see it - and probably, not even then...

Hey, how'd you know that? (grin)

Actually, as Trintellas go, this one was pretty modestly equipped… Out in the Gulf of Maine on Monday night, without the usual Reckmann electric furling on the headsail, and no Starbucks-sized Miele Nespresso machine in the galley, it was brutal, I tell ‘ya… (grin) Still, if you have to motor all the way from Maine to the Chesapeake in a sailboat this time of year, even your most basic Trintella is a pretty good choice…

http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2002/Trintella-47-2276044/Camden/ME/United-States

Happened to be in good company out there that first night… In keeping with the name-dropping so typical of the subject of this thread, I chatted for awhile with John Harries on MORGANS’S CLOUD, a cruising hero of mine, a very impressive-sounding guy… Now, THEIRS is what I would call an informative cruising website, one of the very best out there, IMHO...

http://www.morganscloud.com/

Posted Image


Kick-ass trip, overall… First overnight from Camden to Montauk, the second from Montauk to Delaware City, perhaps even battling a four-metre breaker or two approaching Delaware Bay Entrance Wednesday night (grin), then sneaking up the bay just before the breeze came hard on the nose… and the final day a beautiful sail down the Bay in a 20-25 knot westerly, tied up in Port Annapolis well before cocktail hour on Friday… Topped off with a good party aboard last night with a bunch of rowdy friends of ours...

Shit, it was over so quickly, I didn’t even manage to break anything on this one… Of course, having the Leisure-Furl on this boat out of commission from the get-go helped mightily in that regard... (grin)

Well, I never got a thumbs down, but I reported the reappearance of that stupid peckerhead. I'm not ashamed of myself, but his beneficiaries should be pissed off he isn't dead yet.

I heard that he has been married for 28 years, has owned a boat you, Timo42, and briartrptd can only dream of, has sailed a lifetime more than you, just got a Ph.D from Stanford in Applied Mathematics, is a ham radio operator, owned a farm in Oregon, has an ATP and flew for Fed Express, owned a Pitts S2A and other airplanes, has a CFII and ATP, owned a farm in Oregon, and now lives on the water on San Juan Island and has purchased a powerboat that is being built as we speak..


g


So either you need to stop cutting and pasting or tillerman owns two farms and ATP's. What is the big deal about being a ham radio operator?
