Quite frankly, given what you've stated about your health, your life and your bad temper, I've surprised to see you still posting. But strangely gratified: if a half-dead curmudgeonly sailorboy in suspect overalls can still peck out coherent abuse, there's hope for us all.

Can you still drink whiskey? Because I just toasted you in your general direction (clink!)


And yes, this is what I really drink, especially when a freight train of a snowstorm is headed my way!

I've gotta get this ipod/pm/icd thingy checked, I keep hearing Tupac and Bowwow reverberating from my chest.
Maybe they can get some George Strait or Dolly for me.

Every day that I wake up is a Dam* good day. Its better than the alternative, so I hear.

You know, I never developed a taste for spirits, I'm loopy enough without chemical enhancement.

Rick...we had a broker in Seattle attempt to switch customers from their desired vessel to one of three he had in his brokerage...without revealing he was a broker. This is one in a series of incidents where people with un-revealed personal commercial interests have come on here to sell stuff without taking out an ad. It was time to get quite explicit with our "no ads" in the forums policy.

Cam,
Does that mean we're to have more explicit ads or more explicit forums? (g)

Special interest?? Here? Me?

Lets see: I'm a Maritime instructor for those who want to get their 100/200 ton mates/master's license. Training those who work in the oil service industry here in the Gulf of Mexico (Louisiana). I work for a training center here in Lafayette LA. But I don't tout it here at sailnet.
Yes! I am semi-retired and enjoy teaching what I know. While I'm here I am looking for a live aboard sailboat and a place to put it.
So I am a bit land locked right now... but once I get my own boat again will begin planning for some of those trips to far away places with exotic sounding names.

What do I teach?
Rules of the Road. International and Inland.
Coastal Navigation and Piloting.
Vessel's Stability.
Code of Federal Regulations for the size vessels that we sail on.
Introduction to Emergencies & Safety (both are very related); Fire, flooding, MOB and water survival.
Weather.
touch on Log Keeping. Deck & Engineering.

A very intense course of instruction for the students. Ten days for the 100 tonners and fourteen days for the 200 tonners.

My license? 1600 ton Master with 2nd Mate Unlimited Tonnage upon Oceans
Radar with ARPA endorsement
STCW 95
GMDSS radio License
and Able-body Seaman

I have taught sailing (many years ago) for the U.S. Navy Sailing Club in San Diego CA. and at one time owned a Catalina 30. (Note: Am looking for a new sailboat). The Ex sold the boat while I was at sea working.

There I have discoursed what and why I am here. Besides that you can learn a lot about most anything here. I do enjoy many of the topics and sometimes put in a word or two. Some of which may be a bit felicitous
There are two ways of learning: 1. from your own mistakes. 2. From some one Else's mistakes. And here we get a lot of the latter.

Now is everyone satisfied about what I have reveled?

Boasun,

You and I have been on Sailnet for the same amount of time and have never heard you trying to sell or sway people to your advantage. So I think your ok.
But thanks for all the info, now I know who to listen to.

Wow, it's commercial confession time. I generally comment about what teaching's like, since I do it as a part-time stringer captain for a brokerage here (New Orleans) who runs classes to get people interested in the sport. If someone asks where to get lessons around here I'll tell them, but I don't push it, and I'll certainly disclose that I work for brokerage A as an instructor. There are other adult ed. classes here I've taught in too, they're fine and I'll recommend them too. Or I might even recommend someone just go out and learn on their own. I did.

My opinions here are my own. I teach because I like it, certainly not for the money, which isn't that much. I have a 100-ton Aux. Sail license, did 7 years active and 13 Reserve in the Coast Guard.

Hope that's "transparent" enough (people see through me anyway)

Boasun and Nol,

The only thing we ask about this is that people that are in the marine business are transparent about who they are so as not to try and influence someone(thing) for their own personal/selfish reasons. You should consider putting some of that in your sig line. Why?? Because it will help people to put more credibility in the things you tell them (as long as it is not about anchoring... smile, just kidding). Most people that come here for help/ask questions do not know who knows their stuff and whoe does not.

Not sure if that makes any sense or not??? Kinda late and am having a tough time writing it.

Take care,

- CD
