The other point sway isn't mentioning is that he's getting too old to haul halyards, even with an electric winch.
Rest easy you slackers. Should the inimitable marsupial land the big one he'll not forget his friends at sailnet in pursuit of crewing needs. Personally, I'm hoping to land a cushy position tending to the marsupian hammock. I figure that the fact that I can operate a 21 speed blender and am the last man alive who comprehends the Dewey decimal card catalog are huge selling points that will keep me isolated from you deck apes at the halyards!

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
