I take my first lesson Monday, so unless you need advice about taking out someone at 1000 yards, ignore me. Also the Marine Corps anchor is cocked to one side because historically we suck a sailing. ( The reason I am taking lessons)

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.

At 7:00 this morning, I was relaxing on the aft deck of my boat - drinking a cup of fresh ground coffee, brewed onboard with our French Press . . . decided to sleep in a bit after spending the night at the marina (after sailing - I might add). We all have our priorities.

Need to know the proper wine glass to serve a cabernet in, or what goes with veal scallopini? When it comes manners and etiquette, I'm your man. I also occaisionally nap in out of the way places on deck and thereby overhear conversations not intended for my ears. Just ask my friend Long John.

When on my boat I’m a subject matter expert in everything. I can fix everything, build anything, and tell you exactly what you are doing wrong. Nothing I say or do is ever wrong and I never make mistakes. I am the master of all I survey and I command with an iron fist….that is until Monday morning when I come on to sailnet to make sure I have not fu*@ed up anything too bad.

I've proven I can sail out of a bad spot when the engine quit, anchored and called Sea Tow. I don't think that makes me an expert on sail handling, navigation or communication. hmm let me see... seizing the diesel with only 200 hrs on it, nope not a mechanical expert either I guess.

women.... oh divorce says not expert on that either
Star wars trivial pursuit. . . Can't publicly admit high level of competence

let's see. . .

On second thought, let me get back to y'all on my specific expertiese



now where's that pitcher of Sangria
