Did you crawl out of your mother knowing all that you know about sailing? Or did you go out and and sail and ask and learn like this chick is doing?

No Aaron, I actually read the entire thread and there is no mention of the OP ever sailing or learning to sail, she is just researching a book.

As others mentioned some actual sailing experience might make the book a bit more "real".

I learned everything thing I know from your anti racing diatribes....

Diatribe And I think she mentioned that she was indeed sailing and learning else where. That she came here to gather the collective knowledge of " sailnetter people" on specific oppinoins on what boat would we choose for such a voyage. diatribe................racers are dicks.

That "thinking" stuff can get you in a lot of trouble....

Or, for those who have too much... :-)

I saw that Tag 60 in Ft Pierce last winter, that thing is Pure Sex... Along with a Gunboat, probably the only multihull I could ever bring myself to own... OK, so I could probably be talked into one of Chris White's Atlantics, as well...

Probably just as well a budget IS a consideration, for me :-)

Re: Choosing the Perfect Boat

Okay people, that's it. I have enough info to start digging in earnest! As promised, everyone who has provided help and support gets included in the acknowledgements, wishing that I could do more. Who knows, maybe one day our respective journeys will bring us to the same port?

Although my sailing experience is still modest, I have 'boated' a bit in a lot of places and different conditions. What I knew already and has been confirmed in this first experience of Sailnet is that boatizens are either wonderful or complete dickheads. I am glad of the first who are thankfully more numerous and, with them, amused by the latter

How so? Do tell. And with whom? She stated last page that she was sailing at her local club, that's how I read it any way's. I supose she alluded to that fact. What ever. I'm glad she's doing research on sailing. I THINK you're kinda being a dick to her for asking a pretty normal question, in a pretty obvious place to ask . Does that kind of thinking get me in trouble? by the way, have you ever done any racing by chance?

Re: Choosing the Perfect Boat

You'll have to work on your reading comprehension skills as well as critical thinking ones. Nope, no mention of sailing til the very end, and that was the entire point. Sounds more like fantasy book stuff to me which is quite boorish on a so called sailing forum. Racing? just enough to know that most are dickheads.

Re: Choosing the Perfect Boat

Indeed and agreed. I read too quick and jump to conclusions. And my critical thinking is greatly impared by the fact that I tend to be dick.
