I see no one ever got back to you on this one Mr. Giulietta. Let me see if I can help.

From my experience, I've found the following works very well for your particular configuration...

1 Grind up 2-1/2 glass bottles of cheap rum (the 2 liter variety).
2. Coat exposed the drive shaft with Elmer's school glue or paste mixed with silicone caulk and hair gel (best to do the coating underwater in the winter months in a speedo and snorkel somewhere in Canada)
3. Carefully place each piece of jagged glass along the exposed drive shaft in a spiral pattern - alternating colors and patterning - until you can just make out the visage of Che Guevara while the prop is spinning at 1400 rpm (exactly). Make adjustments as necessary (e.g. - if he's smiling, or one ear is sticking too far out, etc.).
4. Allow compound to dry - then hit it.

No rope can possibly withstand this little trick. Trust me. And let me, Sway, or Dog know if you need any more sailing tips.

Here's a go-by:

Perhaps you should have noted the date of the original post. If you need help using this site properly, see the link in SD's signature.

And yes, everyone knows you dug this up just to troll. Don't worry spring will be here soon and you can go sailing instead of trying to jerk someones chain.

Being as smack is in Texas, and was sailing a day or two ago. Do not think spring is an issue here..........he may have been trolling for a shark tho! maybe a stripped tiger or possibly a basking............

We'll never know!

You're making the assumption that smacky is something other than a troll and that he actually knows how to sail and has people willing to let him do so on their boats. Neither of those is clearly evident...

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.

That would be an obviously bad assumption from his suggested fix.

I stand corrected. It's that whole assuming thing that got me.

John,

Please note if you did not already know

DO NOT assume = ass-u-me!

We will let it go by this time, but not next time!
