Re: Hold Fast

ah, so we go from the badassery of piracy to a backpedalling butthurt admission that "I like the fact they sail without a motor and take chances and are adventurous. I look to the positive things I saw in the vid ..." clarifying that , you know, it wasn't really the impolite, crude, piratey type aspects that he liked anyway.
Aint' hatin', just sayin'.
Apology accepted, dave.

"hating on you"? I actually haven't given you all that much thought. It's the video I dislike.

Re: Hold Fast

Great video. Thoroughly entertaining. You might never want to sail in that manner / style, but they display some awesome skills sailing on and off anchor not to mention shattering the money spent = fun had myth . . .. If you get caught up in the politics or pseudo politics of the whole thing, your missing the joy of it all . . . (and probably need some time on the water more than you know).

Come not here if you have already spent the best of yourself

More of that would have been great.

Hold Fast

Actually I do like the pirate types you mention and cause the way you describe them many friends I have fit this description on and off the waterways. I have to take the good with the bad. I also have wealthy friends who plunder every day, sometimes legally, more than any other pirates did, and they steal from the less well off. I live in South Florida and cruise the Florida Keys and Bahamas and I am so used to this behavior I ignore it. Yes my stuff gets ripped off and damaged all the time, indeed my boat is wrecked because of a very careless boater. His boat is worth 100000 and his insurance co offers me 8000. They are pirates with the law on their side and I have to live with them. You are lucky you can approve of all the people in your life and things they do. I do not have that luxury and just go on with life. At least those kids did something besides playing video games and I work with many kids their age who can't do anything without their cellphone so I do admire them, no one is perfect. You do not seem to be chastising anyone one else for liking this video so I just assumed it was personal so to clear it up, I did not apologize nor do I expect one from you. This is it for idealogical arguing from me strictly sailing from here out. I did this once before and it sucks when some people try to put words in your mouth.

Re: Hold Fast

Dave c...this wasn't about you, until you made it about you.

I wasn't chastising you- you said something silly, and I called you on it. No one is putting words in your mouth. In fact, it would be difficult to do, as you keep changing and modifying and clarifying and explaining what has already come out of your mouth.

Relax, dude- it has all been pretty light-hearted until now. Don't start manufacturing drama like you are producing a poorly edited hipster anarchist video.
