Shorter Notice

I noticed an ad in the crew section that had "short notice" in the title.

That made me smile, because I've told my friends who own boats:

"Give me a call. I'll be there. If you give me two hours notice, I'll be there. If you give me one hours notice, I'll be there, but I might forget something. If you give me half an hour's notice, I'll be there, but I might forget all my gear. If you give me fifteen minute's notice, I'll be there, but I might forget my pants."

Re: Shorter Notice

I often decide to go out when my wife orders me to because I'm being intolerable, so I rarely have any notice to give people.

Re: Shorter Notice

I've always wondered how people can even arrange for crew ahead of time. I find that I make plans on Tuesday for a weekend long sail only to have to change/cancel that plan Friday when the weather changes.

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!

I like your attitude! Next time we're planning an ocean romp (Caribbean to Bermuda for the A cup) I'll give you a call. But PLEASE BRING YOUR PANTS! PM me with contact info.
