idots to the left, morons to the right..

yesterday was a beautiful day for sailing here in sunny SC, granted it was in the 40's, but steady 8-10 knot breeze, and i really wanted to go out. i did the next best thing and rode the bike instead. i rode up to my "big box bookstore" and over a hot cup o' joe, read the latest issue of Good Old Boat.
there was an article by Karen Larsen, that is entertaining and quite frankly reminded me a lot of SailNet (SA too).
if you have a chance, check it out.
i love anything that brings perspective into the mix.

On a slight tangent, I got to meet and spend some time talking with both Karen and Jerry from GOB when I was at the Annapolis Boat Show. They are sincerely nice people, and you can't help but feel that GOB is a labor of love after talking to them.

Basically, Karen's article said something to the effect that when driving, anyone going slower than you is a moron—for not knowing how to drive properly, and anyone going faster than you is an idiot—for taking such risks. And applied the same philosophy to sailing/boating—where the people with the spinnaker up in 25 knots of wind were the idiots, the guys triple reefed in 25 knots of wind were the morons...

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.

Gysgt-

To the people on your left, you're a moron, but they're idiots... to the people on your right, you're an idiot, but they're morons, so what does it really matter.

Personally, I'd say you qualify as both.

If you guys keep talking about spending the day on the boat, I may cry!! Just to put it into perspective for those of you that were watching the Packers v. Giants game last night... My boat is sitting on the hard 1 hr and 15 min. driving time NORTH of Green Bay!!!

T34C,
I just got back from my boat. It was a bit chilly, but not too bad. Had a buddy dive and clean the prop then took Lola out for a little ride.
