Miss you guys, but I can still come here for a visit now and then. Too bad it didn't work out at stuffers for everybody. Where is Sailingdog anyway?

My wife and I met smack back in Texas. It was cool to actually meet the legend in person!

Keep it up here. You guys are a class act.

You're on your own here, and it's not looking so good for you.

I think after the fallout had settled some, Sully went through and unbanned a bunch of us from what I recall...I was unbanned after 6 months or so.

I pop in at stuffers occasionally, I might be giving it a bit of a slap on here but life is too short to hold grudges against people on the internet. I check in at CF and that other favourite site of Smack's as well, too little time though to spend on several forums at once, i'm just not that smart.

If everyone is truly having a Brentboat love-in over there them maybe I will give it a miss for a month and go check in on the Portagee.

I've got enough crazy in my life without voluntarily enduring Sully.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Smack quoted a line beginning "He assumed he had pants to crap in," etc. without giving the context . I suppose he could take a quote out of the joke section and imply the writer was being literal, by leaving the context out.
Actually that was taken from a discussion about religion, having nothing to do with boats. When a holy roller tried to imply the infallibility of the bible I mentioned the story of Adam and Eve.
According to the Bible , Adam praised the garden of Eden, praised the beauty of all the plants and fruit in it, including the forbidden fruit, and named al the animals.
Only then did he eat the forbidden fruit, and only then could he see that he was naked. So while he was praising the beauty of the garden of Eden, praising the beauty of all the fruit in it and naming all the animals , he was blind as a bat.
Being naked up to the time he ate the forbidden fruit, he assumed he had pants on , because if he had tried to take his pants off to take dump, he would have realized he was naked.
So this guy , blind as a bat, dumb as a stump, filthy enough to be willing to take a dump in his pants ,and lies like a mountie in a courtroom, is made in the image of a god we are all supposed to swoon over, worship and emulate?
Apologies for seemingly going off topic, but there was no other way to reveal what Smack was doing. This is typical of many of his manipulations thruout his posts. This is the message smack took a line out of context from , without giving the context?
If that kind of practice is fair game here, then I'm sure I can come up with similar tricks with such quotes from smacks posts, and Bobs, given that he endorsed such manipulation and deception. Boy, wait till you see some of the quotes I can manipulate from what Smack and Bob have posted!
If I leave out "Brent said " part, could I quote Bob as saying "My wife is a *****etc. etc . or quote Smack saying similar things?
You get the idea.
I never once insulted Bob's wife , just asked if anyone had seen her. I could easily arrange for Bob or Smack to do so, using Smacks strategy.
Or does using this type of misrepresentation mean Smack is overdue for a" long time out".

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Boy Brent you are one angry guy for someone who lives the "perfect life".
Seems to me you have some personal issues.

One race to go for the Kiwi's. Watching the AC listening to my lawn guy manicure my lawn, not the perfect life but not too bad.
