I would like to crew for the dogs - they sound like very able and experienced seafolk, who are also capable of hiking and canoeing - indeed they are far more well-rounded than I could ever hope to be. Also I find that dogs tend to have a very good grasp on life's priorities...if they can't eat it, sleep on it, or procreate with it, it's obviously not worth worrying about....
( You're welcome )

Somehow, I have the feeling a Rotti, flying through the air, would be far more fear inspiring than the most deranged wombat.

Cool She's definitely high maintenance.

Her post on Sailing Anarchy (Cruising Anarchy forum) about this Valiant Esprit 37:
"Hey I am seriously considering a valiant esprit 37. Does anyone have any experience? Real info I dont want to here [sic] about blisters. the one I have a contract on has never had a blister problem."

So, don't confuse her with talk about blisters because the one she is looking at has never had any. Well, these are 25-30 year old boats from what I have seen on Yachtworld. Anyone care to join a pool on the chances of her boat getting a case of the pox in the next 3-5 years?

Same attitude as with the dogs -- just tell her what she wants to hear.

A rather demanding young lady, and with very poor hearing.

Now, drunk wombat is easy to do on a boat.

1 wombat remove skin if you don't like (I remove some and leave some for taste)
1 wombat soup (the dry powder ones, you know... just add water)
1 onion cut in small pieces.
1 beer or 2 depends on wombat size.

dump all in a casserole and let boil until meat is done.

When done, eat. Attention, stains are hard to remove from teak!

Be careful, temptation to drink beer might increase required beer bottle quantity!!

Only when inebriated.

Beezer,
Deranged wombats seem to be plentiful, at least around here.
