I thought the forum was for sailors to discuss things (sailing and otherwise) that strike their fancy. If I'm wrong, please provide me with a list of topics or themes that the forum would find acceptable.

I'm 'grumpy' because I don't 'get' the need to acknowledge, and be acknowledged by every other boat on the water? You feel that this justifies making me a pariah and making rude gestures? That makes you the working part of the extremity of the alimentary canal.

Thanks for the suggestion of a new boat name, but, had you read the thread I started on the process I went through to name my boat (I trust that that was a suitable use of the forum's space) you would appreciate that I am not inclined to go through the process again too soon.

Visualize the vastness of the oceans; the infinity of the heavens; the fickleness of the wind; the artistry of the craft and the frailty of the sailor. The oneness that may be achieved through the harmony of these things may lead one to enlightenment. - Flying Welshman
