JonB:
Even the most high tech race machine is still just a toy. But a "toy boat" is something else. I would not consider a Volvo 60 a "toy boat" while I might consider it a toy.

Damn. I'm starting to sound like Paulo.

Another "toy" boat the OP might want to consider is the "Tatoosh 42". Ran into an old friend recently sailing his here in Thailand. It has a shower also.

Thanks James. I held off writing that story for years. I needed some time to pass.

Re: Alejuela 38 vs Pearson 365/367

After reading that story I wanted to be part of it back then! It reminded me of the group of fishermen in Bellingham who ran a huge weed smuggling operation from S.E. Asia back then. They even had a TV documentary made about them.

People and activities like that define the words Rogue, Reprobate and so forth. The best kind of "Pirates". It was the modern iteration of the old rum runners that operated so brazenly here almost 100 years ago.

It's too bad so few of them ever pulled it off successfully without descending into Coke and serious criminal activity. Now it's all bikers and guns and psycho viciousness. Back then it was more like a mischievous and exciting adventure.

JonB:
I hear you. I never really gave it much thought back then. Until some of the guys were arrested. Gene La Force died in prison. Don't know how or why. Were they "criminals"? I guess so but I didn't see them that way. To me they were just normal, So Cal guys bringing in pot for themselves and their friends. Now in Washigton State pot has been decriminalized. Kind of makes you wonder how something can be a criminal offense one day and OK the next and sanctioned by our state government. In Wa's case it has more to do with the state seeing pot as a revenue source when they are hurting for money than anything to do with ethics or morals. The word 'hypocracy" comes to mind. But I'm not smart enough to figure that stuff out. My first room mate in college had been sent to prison for pot charges. His parents turned him in. I asked him if he was angry at his parents he said no. "They could never have imagined the world they were sending me to." Kind of sad.

Re: Alejuela 38 vs Pearson 365/367

I remember a friend of mine getting caught by his parents smoking weed here back then (late 60's). The Mounties told his parents they shouldn't turn him in.

Our weed situation & laws were never remotely as draconian as the States. Putting people in prison for years or decades for weed is simply insane. Thank God society is slowly smartening up. I'd rather the money go to taxes than the drug gangsters. Saving money wasted on policing, courts & prisons would be good too.

I'd sure prefer that people smoke weed than drink booze - that change alone would cure a lot of societies ills - not too many pot smoking wife beaters that I'm aware of - they're too lazy if nothing else.
