Let me guess.. your crew was about to push you out the transom...and you fell to the deck to prevent it..

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.

Are you talking about the legs that can be seen in the first photo on the right??

That was Fred and his friend they were playing WWF Wrestling then....

They come on the boat and start wrestling and doing Simplex's and 619's and all kinds of Wrestling things and moves....

I beat them too!!!



but most of the time...they're just happy kids sailing...

Not surprising, considering the 240 lbs. weight and 3' height advantage you have on them combined...

BTW, have you stubbed your toe on the mainsheet traveler track yet??

For your information I only weigh 160lb. as I watch my diet...AND I AM 6' TALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:D

BTW, have you stubbed your toe on the mainsheet traveler track yet??
No...actually no one has...we use shoes while sailing....my law!!!! first because it prevents those situations, second because it does not stain the teak, third...in the summer....HOT HOT HOT!!!!!

Also the track is not that high... and normally when we sail...few people go there..buy so far no one has hurt feet there.

The track is high on purpose...I decided that...



However...one day my little baby was siiting (before he coud sit on his own he was 5 months) down and fell forward and hit his lip on the Main pulley.

So far only casualty...thank God.

I was basing my estimate of your weight on the photos of your family members... I guess your foul weather gear makes you look poofy...

I'm only 5' 4" and outweigh you by a bit... something to do with the 44 XS suit jacket i wear and the 18" neck on the dress shirts is my guess... weightlifting and wrestling make getting nice clothes tough...
