  1. This. The only thing that needs to be nuked is this thread.
  2. I think you know what you are doing. I’ve followed along. I also agree delicate balance. I wouldn’t do it in that boat alone. But if he wants to go that’s fine too. I really dig your boat.
  3. I’m not sure I said that Baja is super difficult and dangerous. I just said you have to take it seriously in a well prepared boat. I’m not sure about it being about as easy a thing could be. But really, it’s a free world so if he wants to take a sabot he can have fun storming the castle. And I totally agree about singlehanded sailing not going anywhere. I just think it’s kinda putting the responsibility on the rest of us to look out for you. I can handle it. Enjoy the weekend.
  4. Hey Sassafrass, I have followed your travels here on SA and know you have a lot of experience along Pacific Mexico and beyond, so I take your comments to heart. I agree, not everyone needs a 50 foot cruzilla and I'm not saying it can't be done in a small boat by an old crew. I've done it in a San Juan 24 and when I was young and dumb and I've done in on the 143' Attessa 1. I'm just commenting specifically about Alans proposed voyage because he asked. If you don't think my experience above qualifies me to opine thats fine. In my experience, the proposed trip plan is not great. I know he's
  5. It a great read. I’m not sure wether one would think it’s a dream to do what Christian did or not. It’s not for me. I don’t want to do anything without SWMBO and she’s not going for that. Baja is for real and one needs to be prepared to be on ones own. I’m sorry if I was rude but I felt like I was talking to a member of the Donner Party for a minute. “Oh, it’ll be a fun and easy walk.” There’s no reason to be afraid to go, just be real. I don’t think it’s realistic for an old guy to go solo in a 26 foot center boarder with a jug of water, hoping to row ashore every day to find a
  6. If I’m here, and you’re here, doesn’t that make it our time, Mr Hand?
  7. And, I’m super sorry to say, I agree with this.
  8. I can’t. I went to college for an afternoon. I did about 30 minutes with a guy like AJ with his brown jacket with the elbow patches. I quit right then and never looked back. Best decision of my life except marrying my wife.
  9. So why not get the vaccine? Thanks for telling me what I understand and what I don’t. You kooks don’t get it. The OP asked if I would let an unvaccinated person on board my boat. The answer is no.
  10. Sorry, I tried to quote the part about masks and business closures.
  11. I didn’t say anything about this. If you want a spot on our team, or our private boat, or in our house or really just to be my friend, you’ll need the vaccine. The time will come, when all who want it can get it, it will be required for normal things like school, international travel, an office whatever. I’m so glad we have it. I understand what it is and is not.
  12. So, after all the quarantines we’ve done, the nights at the covid hotel in Vancouver, wearing masks and face shields on airplanes, washing our hands raw, wiping down our groceries, restricted our travel (SWMBO hasn’t seen her dad in 18 months), chased down and signed up for our shots, we are supposed to let those who refuse the vaccine on board? I don’t fucking think so. My boat, my rules. No vaccine, no splash.
