  1. Turns out he was working for a Charter company in the PNW and used Jammer6 as his gmail account….Lyle never saw it coming. He “disowned” BP after that and deleted all his stalking bullshit.

  2. 3 hours ago, Steam Flyer said:

    You chased off Jammer 6? That's your good deed for the year, for sure. Thank you!

    I did and it was fun figuring out who he is. One dumb sumbich who used the same name for everything. That was his downfall:P

    That was a good day!!

  3. He rode Bob Perry so hard and said he owned him that I finally had to hunt him down. Found him up the PNW and let BP know who he was. He was a loser and I won’t post his name, but he emailed me an my response was Aces High! He took his shit and bolted. Looked like the guy from the movie UP!

  4. I let my friend drive my Penn Yann tunnel drive powerboat back in 200ish. Drew 6” on a plane and 18” off. I said “don’t go near those swan by the northeast side of the bridge to Seaside” as I ducked into the little cuddy to get some beers at 30 knots. I rooted around for his favorite beer. 
    By the time I stood back up, we were headed right at them when I saw their black legs holding them up. My buddy went to pull back on the throttle and I pulled him off the helm and gunned it harder. You could hear the propeller chewing River pebbles as we rode past. Got back to 2’ depth and let him drive again.

  5. Good to hear! I sailed with my Dad for years and we won many races. Sometimes we argued like you guys, but we knew what we were doing and really wanted to do better in the race. 
     

    However, he didn’t like to sail for recreation and I hope you guys enjoy your time together. Please only post a video of your best performance, my eyes are going to take some time to heal. I’ll post a video below that shows how to be a real sailor. Many of the regulars here are familiar with it and should skip it, but it is important to watch. Then you will be like us. We’ve all been there.

  6. They are solid boats with a lot of cockpit space since the benches are stick built teak or mahogany. The full keel and attached rudder will help keep crab pots from anchoring you and the shallow draft makes gunkholing easy. A Cape Dory Typhoon has a fiberglass molded cockpit and benches with storage lazarette a but not much legroom to stretch out, but there seem to be more of them available than the Corinthians. 

  7. Mate appears to have hove to whether the Captain approves or not and is a stubborn little bastard to boot! At least he will get his tea. If it were me, it would be rum and the lash for you!

    In all, that video is tough to watch since you don’t have the patience to listen or follow direction. You have youth on your side so that may change, but you might wind up giving your Captain a stress related heart attack.

     

    pS, the Captain wanted both sails on the same side of the boat the way everyone else sails.
