1.) if you have beer, or a buzz dont sail near me. my rub rails are teak. I like to pretend they''re decorative. Thats why I use fenders.
2.) the effect any drug, and yes, marijuana is a drug, has on you is proportionate to the person using it, and the quantity. Pot can be better, as bad, or worse than alcohal. Just pick the quantities to apply.
3.) for the record, beer can races are for beer AFTER the race. you have a few while you''re out cruising, I wont endorse it, but I wont bitch. If I get hit on a start, by one more drunk racer who didnt have their **** together enough to yield right of way, I''ll sink their ******* boat.
I like sailing. I enjoy it. I like alcohal. Hell, I like halucinagenics. (ut oh, the black helocopters are outside right now, and I typed this on a public forum
) but I keep them all in their place. and none of those overlap. You want to sail somewhere, and then get drunk/stoned/wasted off your ass till you''re praying to the porcelin goddess, or seeing dolphins talk to you, go for it, just dont do it while your sailing near me. I''ll make it a point to be a major buzzkill.
As the above point may have made clear, I''ve had some direct,personal issues with people who do and dont have their **** together with controlled (ha!) substances. Act responsibly people. If you cant give it up long enough for a sailing trip, may I strongly suggest either AA or NA. They help.
In reply to the inital post, I suggest you take a clean trip to whereever once and watch what happens before you go down there with drugs. Do that once in mexico, you''ll not want so much as a roach clip with you next time.
