To all liveaboard and cruisers out there:

EDIT:

I was not welcome here on sailnet and therefor I have found a new safe port where I am actually wanted.

I therefor ask my profile to be deleted. I could not find this button to delete the profile anywhere.

Re: To all liveaboard and cruisers out there:

What a coincidence. I'm looking for a 51 foot Formosa in excellent condition for around $5000. Anyone know where I can find one?

The was a 38' steel boat in Ft.Perice Fl that would have been perfect but the owner didn't register it and I think it was cut up for scrap.

Thank you so much for trying to make me feel small. But I got news for you - this is not needed or good behavior and not to be expected from a sailor - maybe from a 15-16 year old kid.

First of all - I am here for the sailing and not for the website I am running. I am here just like any other sailor smart enough to soak up anything new to him and any experiences out there to make my own passages safest possible.

I have never before - and now I am serious - this is the first time I have received any attention like this - never before I came here. I am used to respect.

Second - if you do not interest yourself for these things, fine - no need to let the whole world know this is too dumb for you - just do not see the point? Also, the fact that I wanted a website for my several years sailing around to keep me busy and to keep the excitement up and also some (and then I mean some pocket money) The expeditions themselves are paid from my web shop. This website is a personal document of my sailing days.

The unknown interests me and have always done so. I have an IQ far above Mensa requirements and my brain needs to work. Also I am about as good as you can get catching liars and con artists. I use this to help out people who get taken advantage of by "psychics" and their likes.

Also, I have during the years written a lot of articles - quite a few of them are about the unknown - in a skeptical preview of course, just like on my website where I take down one conspiracy theory after the other. I reveal con artists and how they do it. The excitement is that sometimes, just sometimes things may not be as you think.

By the end of the day it harms nobody and saves a few good natured people a future fortune. And it will make my traveling interesting. The unknown is the theme and it gives indefinitely possibilities for exciting expeditions no mater where I am.

Jungle expeditions, Easter Island, Bermuda triangle, abandoned ships, exploring myths and legends - to me this is more fun than to drink umbrella drinks on a beach (which I will be doing plenty of as well in between)

Conclusion:
Sailnet is obviously not for me - I am not happy when people just have to make a remark like that.


It is a first time for everything - but this I was never expecting

If this is the general feeling here about me. I do not want to burden you all and I will leave.

With cops like that I wonder how many got "caught" while they were innocent? I bet a whole lot he has not even read one article on this website and still talks like he knows what it is really about. This is probably one of those cops with narrow mind and lots of wrongfully executed arrests.

I might be wrong I just think this sounds about right after he jumps to his conclusion with no facts checked. Of course this is not something I should write in public - these thoughts should be kept to myself - like he should. The very least, I make my assumption after reading, he made his before checking the facts behind the facade - those are generally the best people suited to be cops - or so I heard.

Re: To all liveaboard and cruisers out there:

Earth.
They run a pretty tight ship around here and work very hard to make sure this site don't turn into a spam site. I am grateful for the moderators hard work.
At any one time there will be from 50 to 200 people on line at any one time.
The chances of one of them saying something that is annoying or appears inappropriate at one time or another is approxamitly 100%.

If you stick around and ignore the posts that annoy you and learn from the ones that are insitefull I think you will really enjoy sailnet.

I'm sure many of us are interested in your boat selection process, I know I am, and would welcome hearing what you have found out so far.

Welcome back.
And remember now one person or post is sailnet.
