What a lot of great posts from people with incredibly diverse and interesting backgrounds. There will always be 'it's all about me' people out there 'power or sail' no matter what, but having lived on a boat, in a houseboat and messin' about in boats since a kid, I find most boaters a far more interesting lot than their 'suburban' counterparts. Sure, we all own houses but 'who' discusses the merits of post and beam vs a rancher vs a back split? Who cares! Having sailed and powered, I'm still fascinated by anything that floats. Maybe it's because my first boat was a raft that lasted all of 30 mins.
What's worse.. a snob or a red-neck? (yes, unfortunately they boat too) Generally speaking, give me the company of 'boaters' any day. If it floats..you're half way there.
