In Topic: In search of the most elusive commodity

Do they routinely send an email confirming the order with specifics? If they did, and still F'd it up twice, ask them for a recommendation who you should order from next time, and never go back, I guess. As for this order, 25% off  and free shipping would be a good compromise.


In Topic: "Adventures" in yacht ownership and fucking up.

There was the one time I was doing a race doublehanded short distance (out to an island and back) with myself and a girl on my boat. After the race I had a lot of people asking me why I went so far out on the return leg, and finished dead last... 


And I'm sure you both had a great time. Not all winners come first.

In Topic: Why the F*** Do You Sail?

Why do I sail?

Because my boat tells me to. Every time i pass by it in the garage it inspires memories, reminds me of eight hour spinny runs, long road trips, cookouts with my kids, camping with my wife. It only requires a little clean up, organizing, and improving... Just a little care & attention and we're off to see friends, coastlines and sunsets. A vehicle to happy.

When I don't sail, my boat gets lonely and I become ornery. Waiting to sail again I read mags and visit online sites... not the same at all. I've started building an outrigger; that's fun & addictive, too.

Could you do low angle shots, too? That would be a nice way to mix up the viewpoints. 

Also… sailors LOVE to see mark roundings, especially from such a clear perspective. 

(It would be nice to see a variety of boats, not just the big boys)

 

BEST regatta sailing videos I've ever seen. Thanks for sharing. Ditto the "hope you're making money" comment. If not, the destinations and parties aren't too bad, either.


In Topic: Anybody else sick of the Bush bashing and Liberal crap on the front pa

Oh yeah, I forgot the Bush era tax breaks, which was an obvious ploy to curry favor from hoi polloi and enrich the 1%.
