Perhaps Sheila would like to sponsor our trip... Let's just assume she does... maybe someone should get her cc# so that we can begin making arrangements. Call me a cockeyed optimist, but I think the expedition will cost Sheila somewhere between $300,000 - $400,000. Half-million tops. In fact, we should give her our word that this expedition WILL NOT cost her more than $750,000. We should all be willing to giver her our solemn oath that she will not be responsible for expenses exceeding $850,000.

850,000 won't even cover the cost of my solar panels!! Which reminds me, i may need to add a couple more to power those small islands...

OHHHHH WAIIIITTTT! Crap. I got it all figured out. I take her up on the offer, we go out sailing (me, wife, 2 kids, etc) we hit the reefs, and guess what I got: FOUR BABYSITTERS FOR FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They will never be so happy to get back to California.

Yes, Sheila, I am kidding. Giu can take you on his boat. He wont mind. However, if it is upwind, you will never get there. If it is downwind, you will pass it by. Better check the wind direction before you take him up on it.

Off course we think about science... how do you think my boat moves??? Its a science....

But again...she could then chop the boat up, to see how it was built...that's science, too.

This thread is too funny. I was going to mention that I am researching the tranquil effect of trade winds and sailboats on the "Type A" personality, also known as the Type A Behavior Pattern, and I am looking for a grant.

But seriously...Scripps is a very worthwhile organization, and I think SheilaMarie is a legitimate post. Most of us, as sailors, are evironmentalists - and ocean research is much needed. It's just that I wouldn't think a sailboat makes any sense for a bunch of scuba divers.

Scripps has a fleet of four ships and a platform called FLIP for oceanographic research.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.

CD...making progress are we???

1st You know what upwind and downwind means...a rare thing for a Catalina owner

2nd combining thoise two words in one sentence, showing you have learnt how to use the rudder to change direction....

3rd You understood the principle of getting there....and passing it...now that is a lot different from "sitting here" isn't it???

I'm going to budget $840,000 for cocaine and prostitutes. If anyone has any special requests of their own, it will have to come out of the remaining $10,000.
