We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through

Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs

Screwdrivers, wrenches, clevis pins, bolts, sunglasses for the cheap stuff.

One cell phone getting ON the boat.

One cell phone getting OFF the boat.

One cell phone in the new boat's bilge (same effect).

Two boats, three cell phones. I'm beginning to think Neptune eats the damn things.

Valiente,
I look for shirts with a button on the breast pocket for that very reason. Cell is secure, and you fricking know when it's on vibrate. Left nipple gets VERY hard.

My worst fumble was a brand new dingy outboard (worth about $2500us) in several hundred feet of water. Oh was my father PO'd.
Ummm... so how deep is the water next to your boat???

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.

It's deep, and cold too, (sounds like and old joke)....Seriously though, it's only about 35' deep, but there's a ton growth down there; tall grass and seaweed like stuff. Someday, I'll bust out the dive gear and go treasure hunting.

1955 Blanchard 51 Custom ( I got a woody )

I should buy stock in measuring tapes for all the ones that Skip has lost. He always has two spare ones in his tool box for the inevitable occasion. Even if you can retrieve them they are never the same.

After sailing from Jamica to the Panama I dropped the outboard when the knot I tied did not hold. I was very tired. Then had to dive 35' to get it. At anchorage "F"
