Big shout out to all the people like Sailing Dog who make this place remarkable

After reading yet another thoughtful post from SD, I thought I'd glance at this guy's profile. 28 foot boat...New England...and then, on the right, I saw some astronomical number: 14,000 posts!

Participation, and by that, I mean, responding to dumb questions like mine with the patience of Job, without an iota of superiority, makes this forum a special phenomena.

My heartfelt thanks to SD and all the other veterans for their (virtual) community service.

Tom

LOL... not needing a whole lot of sleep and working on the 'net with a 20Mbps fiber optic connection... has a bit to do with that... I was MIA a couple of weeks ago... busy helping a friend deliver the boat her grandfather just gave her. Pretty boat... but not what most here would want, being a trimaran.

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.

For Pete's sake, don't encourage him! He'll start posting more!

I'm just kidding, of course. SD's posts are great to see, we missed him when he was away.

I'd like to register a complaint against SD. I needed to do a mast installation a while back, and he instructed me xxx. I tried this, but could only get it to the spreaders. After doing a little of my own research, I learned that the mast on my boat goes on the deck. Uh, thanks a lot, Sailingdog.

SH-

You must have confused the mast and the thermometer again... You need to stay on your meds... and out of public areas. I believe that's what the court ordered.

ahahahahahahahahahahahaha Hog,

That was funny...he wanted to tell you it was a danforth you had to that with...not the mast..I can't find the instructions on the danforth, sorry. I could direct you to them...

For the record::::

SD is an all right guy, I like him, and met him. We also talk on the phone sometimes, and I think he altough being a little opinionated, he is a good man, that soul purpose in life is to help others.
Really is. He just wants to be helpfull without gaining nothing from it. I swear its true. If you know his history and what he did at one point in his life, without exopecting nothing in return you would understand. Tha guy really is a good samaritan. I swear.

I know sometimes he gets on people's nerves because he has that tendency to be the last one to post, even if he has nothing to say, but that is a small price to pay for the whole help he has given people on this site ME INCLUDED..

Just yesterday I needed to find fastners for my boat, who did I call ??? SD!!!

I have no problem with him, and like to thank him too.

By the way, you attack the Dog, you attack me...I'll come on his rescue anytime someone here is bad to him. The guy is too good a person to deserve crap.

God bless you you mutt...for what you do and are.

The man's only problem is his choice in boats...but hey...no one's perfect

Alex
