You might say that again, Line honours.
Re spare main, we had the delivery main on Brinders in 2008 that ended up being used from roughly abeam Mariah Island.
I know things can change, but this ETA for the Army boys is a more reasonable call for 'time constraints'
Nice guys but are they able to win a war. Hope so.
Over here a upcoming war with Russia in the Oekraine, which is a backwarded country.
It is set be battlefield for Russians who pull down airline carriers and want to test their jet fighter fleet mostly Sukhoi's. Will be a rocket war in my opinion.

Question- Why would a pro encourage a newbie owner to race PHS in the biggest race in the country? BTW I never said anything about PRO's being greedy and in regard to payment, personally not only my average time for payment but my nonnegotiable condition is that my invoice is paid in full before I step on a boat. If the owner disagrees then he probably has no intention of paying at all. Slow payment effectively means you are lending some rich cunt money.I thought we were interested in encouraging new players into our sport.
I know of cases where a keen sailor invites someone out for a twilight sail - the invitee loves it, has enough cash to buy a boat but has no idea what to buy. The original invitor introduces the newbie to a pro who the invitor knows. The pro works with the newbie to establish what sort of boat would suit him best, and guides the newbie through the purchasing process,
The newbie loves his new boat and the pro sails on the twilights to help the newbie learn. The newbie gets the competitive urge and decides to upgrade to a racing yacht. The pro assists in the sale of the learning yacht, and the purchase of a suitable racing yacht. The pro then ensures the yacht is in proper condition for racing and accompanies the new racing skipper on his learning experience, possibly brining a couple of other pros along as well at the beginning.
Question - why is the pro seen as a greedy cunt in all of this? Oh, and btw, do you have any idea what the average time for payment is of an invoice in this industry?
In the yacht racing industry in Australia, the ones being screwed most often are the people trying to earn a living as professional sailors, and the ones doing the screwing are most often those standing on the podium, or aspiring to.
Fans? Sounds like you’re one of them.This just in on the Scallwag FB page. 'To the Scallywags the boss SH, team behind the scenes and all your many thousands of supporters around the world are super proud of you!'
Many thousands of supporters around the world? Who the fuck do they think they are? A F1 team? Only the England cricket team still have supporters when they get owned. Super proud of what? Coming last out of 3?
