How ironic that two weakest links on Sailnet, Mayor McCheese and Panty Boy neither of whom have seen the other side of the harbor would take a shot at me or anyone for that matter. Mayor McCheese with his dinghy with training wheels and Panty Boy with the Floating Condo. Both of you are shivering little girls living your life fearing the next wedgy clearly coming your way. Why dont you two actually go sailing in the Ocean so that you can share some useful stories involving your experiences instead of living your life in this cyber world called Sailnet. Its supposed to be a site for sailors.
Thanks Knothead. You gave up a great boat!
Panty Boy: I probably sailed more last Saturday than you have sailed in your life. That is obvious to anyone who reads Sailnet.

For the moment during refit.

95% daysailor / weekender mini-cruise

5% Catalina (week + cruise)

After refit. ?????? we shall see! Want to head North!

Well, let's see now....Saturday......only out for 8 hours myself. No doubt you were out for 8 hours and 1 minute. Really Surferboy, if you can't take it, don't dish it out. Though it's simplicity itself to rebut you, you never deal with what's said, just new put downs. Pretty lame for someone who's supposed to have a law degree.

Oh, and by the way.....were you going to actually respond to the topic, or just use it for another temper tantrum?

Surfesq never ever deals with the actual crux of what is said. He can't do anything but elementary school level put downs. He probably has never been out in the ocean, or on a sailboat for that matter. If you look at the majority of his posts, they're potshots at people, who are usually spending the majority of their time helping others on this forum.

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.

Ok SailingDog. Maybe you should eat your own dog food. Here's where this thread first went off track:

which is what is happening with a certain 41' houseboat you see in someone's avatar.

Neal-

Sorry, but I couldn't resist adding that category to the original list... It was far too easy to do...It isn't like that response was off-topic... a potshot, but a relavant one. There are quite a few boats that are either yard queens or dock queens, and that needed to be addressed in the survey.

Ok, the good news is that it's almost the weekend again. So let's hear how many hours everyone spent on the water next Monday. No cheating!

BTW, is it ok if I keep Geminis and Catalinas on my list of future boats?

Any boat is okay to keep on your list, because you should be buying the boat to please yourself.

Man, you guys are rough on each other! I hope this is all meant in good fun.

In answer to the original post, I put myself down as a number one Daysailer or weekender for now and, God willing, I'll work my way up to being a real cruiser somewhere down the road.

V/R

Dave

For the period from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend this year:

46% of days, boat sat on mooring or in slip waiting for us
20% of days, she was on the hard for refit (we hauled out mid-August)
16% of days, we were daysailing
11% of days, we took her on (true) offshore adventures
8% of days, we used her for weekend get aways

Note that for the first part of the summer, it was an 8-hour drive to get to the boat, while for the second part of the summer it was only a 4-hour drive to get to the boat...
