sailhog has a spectacular aura about sailhog has a spectacular aura about
I'm new to boat life, but it seems to me there's an unusually high percentage of sleezy bastards at the docks, marinas and especially the boatyards in my neck of the woods. Like flies on --it. There's a mechanic who occasionally works on diesels at my dock, and the guy looks like he'd just as soon kill you as look at you. Everybody complains about his work, but he just finds new customers who've never heard of him. There are lots of wonderful people in sailing, but it's important to be able to separate them from all the flotsam out there.

Yado is on a distinguished road
It looks live you've just met one of those miserable guys, "boat trolls" I call them, guys who ditched it all-wife, house, kids, sanity, etc.-to live out his dream as a boat owner. Yachting on the cheap drives some people crazy and they resort to desparate acts of preying on idealists such as yourself. If you want to keep your happiness and optimism in tact, recognize those boat trolls quickly-and every marina has a few- and avoid them at all costs. I recently said "no" to a "boat troll" who wanted me to crew for him and he went nuts; better to know their character before spending a week trapped with one. This site has invaluable information on how to evaluate a crewing opportunity: Offshore Passage Opportunities: Halesite, New York

Hey Kacper,

I understand you're from Vancouver. My new boat is now three-and-a-half months into her fit-out on Granville Island, and the yard tells me that she is slated for completion by mid-June. I'll be doing some shake-down day sails in English Bay as soon as she is ready. PM me when you get back to Vancouver, and let's discuss getting you to sea.

Rockter will become famous soon enough
Kacper...

Anytime you are in Scotland, I'll give you a sail on Loch Ness. No charges, no maintainence, no engine work.

No.

Just sailing and a beer or two... 5% booze in it too, ulike that American stuff.

Everything worked the last time I was on board and Scotland and its other pretty canals are slow to anger, even in a gale....

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.
