Be that as it may, it is still an ADVERTISEMENT. And if they're a motor vessel, WTF are they doing posting on SAILNET?

Also, considering that of their five posts on sailnet, all are either advertising their website, their voyages or bitching about the fact that they can't pm yet, I'd have to call them a SPAMMER.

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.
