Yeah..I think the comments are funny...They make no sense at all...Just before I checked back before leaving for Cancun...I walked to the marina common area...There was a boat from Houston who pulled in after a six day sail..I was interested to find out what their secret was in keeping crew harmony..there were six aboard..Where did they all hibernate below ?..God only knows.?.I was curious to find out.."Seemed like a happy lot"..They partyied to the wee hours last night..Kept me awake..almost joined in though
Franz, the Captain, was walking back..the 2 girls..Heather and Kirstan were getting off along with this thirty something German Guy..The Captain's sister and brother in law were staying aboard..for the next leg of their voyage.
Heather, who would make a bikini cry, WOW..told me the Captain's an *******...after talking with her 5 minutes..she sounded the same as most of you all... CLUELESS.."She did however have obvious charm"...LOL...Kirstan looked like she was betwen semesters..studying whatever, wherever..nice girl. The young man nice type..and adventurer but not a sailor.."He told me he'd continue with a land route to wherever..Confirming my aforementioned remarks..
Being and finding good disciplined crew is not that easy.. It would appear, I need...LOL... to put up with the Sail net...shore side peanut gallery and their..demeaning personal comments..but that's ok..."Part of the price in getting where you are going"
Nevertheless, I don't think you distinguish yourself well with some of the disguisting comments however...I think it reflects much more on you. and your character...than it does on me..
I'm beginning to feel sorry for some of you in your shallow frustrated lives..as sailor wannabees...Didn't think it is psychologically THAT important..You have been brain washed by the sailing media..
The worst type of sailor wannabee, in my humble opinion, is a middle management professional with no military service experience..They just don't know how to keep their mouth's shut..and just follow an order.."It can be a very hostile environment out there...I've seen men die...cut in half by cables for being stupid..There is no relationship between the job you did on land, and being a seaman..They are world's apart...lived and thrived in both..
After I got my graduate degree in Europe...I became a professional seaman...Thank God I was still young enough to be "teachable"..starting out as a humble ordinary seaman...There is more to sailing than pulling ropes..Most of you are too old and too ugly..in your fantasy of the fantastic... judging by the tenor of your comments..
Teeing off on you guys is getting to be fun..Just another contact sport...waiting for crew..
Of course I wouldn't be doing this if you just kept your mouth shut..None of you, it would appear have the qualifications I seek ..So the question is this..Why are you mouthing off?
My solicitation is simple, honest and to the point..very disturbing to think that so many might be so mentally ill.
Good Sailing ?...Lord only knows
P.S. The term "grinding it out" was used in previous posting..to sum up "..holding on in bad weather"..and coming out the other side as a better sailor..of course your mind only sees what it want's to see...pathetic characters indeed..
