Warning! Disfunctional Skipper

Beware of the sailboat Fibonacci. A red Pearson 10m, located somewhere Maryland or New Jersey Coast. The skipper may be looking for crew, and the skipper is not a safe one to travel with. Very poor decision making, bad seamanship, unsafe, and terrible attitude towards others, etc.
A friend of mine just left his boat and at least two other groups of people as well. He can't find himself on a chart, I kid you not!
Skipper of Fibonacci, if you come across this I'm sorry, but the truth hurts. Read Chapman, change your attitude.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I think he's on sailnet forums. Maybe he will come across this and tell his side of the story...

All you say may well be true but right now it is nothing but hearsay. I hope this maligned fellow does fire back in his own defence.

For now you should be careful what you say. You are hurling abuse at someone with no good reason. Gossip and idle chit chat do not provide much in the way of evidence.

Minus the boat specifics, you just described half the dudes on every other sailing forum out there...especially the lame ones. Are you saying you're functional?
