Hey, I resemble that remark. (Except for the yelling)

I've gotten a few new arrivals to this forum into sailing by crewing for me. They seem to like it well enough.

Don't get me wrong, I love cruising too. It's one reason why I'm not winning more races- I can't seem to strip enough cruising crap off of my boat to lighten it up. I like using my fresh water system, my shore power system, my stove, my stereo, etc...
