Side note:
The guy that I first crewed for had SS angle iron welded up that replaced the toe rails on the bow. VERY effective in pre-race manouveing!!!! I saw it rip off 1 BBQ grill, 1 stern pushpit, and put 3 holes thru the hull of another boat. (All in 1 season of racing!!)

Thumbs down

SD, didn't you already make this point in the original thread that you quoted dogsailors from? Also I don't see her post thanking people for their replies in your quote.

While I have no dog in this fight - pun intended - I have noticed there is a certain contingency of posters here lately who have been a bit juvenile and tend to hijack threads for their own entertainment, posting "witty" locker room banter instead of staying on topic as did happen in the thread you quote from. That might be the source of frustration for the poster seeking persons with actual experience and not just somebody's lips & A**hole if you know what I mean.

Not long ago I would have guessed you as a moderator with your criticism of people for not following proper forum etiquette. Might I suggest one of those "chill pills" of which you speak?

Ah come on BADG. The initial answers in that thread addressed her concerns, They came from people like me who have cruised with animals (in my case a dog and a cat) and found the experience to be less than wonderful for the animals. Again in my case I tried to make the point that while cruising from one marina to another was Ok the idea of an extended offshore cruise with animals was not fair on them. For us animal lovers that's an unfortunate fact but a fact nonetheless.

Sure it went downhill from there but really , what can you expect ?

tdw, could you elaborate on what it was like with the cat aboard? I have a young one that I've had for a few months. While I won't be going anywhere out of the Chesapeake anytime soon, in a couple of years we will be doing some extensive cruising. I have already planned to keep my eyes on her behavior while living aboard and the bay trips I'll be taking with her. If you prefer, you can PM your experience with it to me.

I've heard that cruising with cats is actually reasonably easy...since they're much lower maintenance than two 40+ lbs. dogs would be. Many LD cruisers, including Tania Aebi, have written about their experiences with cats aboard.

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.

I have noticed that the original question got answered several times; fairly and honsetly. That particular person did not like the suggestions she was given. Her mind was made up before she solicited for advice. Nothing anybody said or did was going to please her, other than "I think its a great idea."

The humor is part of what makes this work, we have had this discussion.
In fact we have had all of these discussions.

I noticed that the same topic gets brought up about the same thing over and over again. Do ya see me complain? NO.

The questions do get answered. Threads do get hijaked. The topic changes. We joke around.
So what?

Sailortj, I am not defending dogsailors - that thread is irrelevant to me. This thread is gratuitous and contrary to the content.

Joking is perfectly acceptable (I even partake on occasion) but when it renders a thread useless by having to sort through pages of name-calling, it is too much. People will find other sources for information where they do not have to wade through all the BS.

I understand and respect your point of view.

There is a time and a place for everything. (Even joking/humor)

It's a shame this site doesn't have a bunch of article that people could go to for info before starting silly threads that just ask to be 'jacked.

T34C & sailingdog- let's not forget the wombatapult (though i don't know it's effective range)
