Even so, I would love to bury the Rocna. I know it's not worth it. I considered him a friend too. I'll try to get over it.

That said - CA is the bomb. SA may very well crater due to the lawsuit - but CA has some of the best sailors there are on the interwebs. Those guys are gold.

For another thread probably and just as probably needlessly scratching at old sores. I shouldn't have brought it up but it niggles. I liked/like Alex but that business was without redeeming feature. Nuff said.

Been so long since I Anarchyed (sic) but what lawsuit ?

Aha .... so its that fat truck eh ? I thought the Meyers thing was dead and buried years ago. What a piece of work.


Given the look of the cat funt all SA need to do is hang on until his ticker gives out.
