Re: nautical language rant

smackdaddy - I don't care if you don't think you and the people you sail with should learn what the thingy on the front is or if you give detailed instructions in how to crank wenches on boats. feel free. read my biography if you think I've never been on a racing sailboat with 20 lines. I think the most lines I've encountered were probably found on Decoursey Fales 'nina', a staysail schooner- god knows how many lines she had, and every one of them had a name, and it was important to know them. But I guess I never had a 'BFS' like you.
