Are you nuts??? Do you know my son??? It's Luis we're talking here...he has a deal with a very bad guy.....I should pad his head, to protect the handles.....

He was banging everything with it...and if you tried to remove it..he would cry...

We replaced the handle with a box of nails and a hammer...but now I need the hammer, so we're giving him a lighter, and a gas can

Um... I didn't say he was gonna hurt himself.... Just that you should protect the handle when he hits his head with it. I see that Luis gets his daddy's thick skull.

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.

Speaking of hammers, lighters and gas cans, whatever happened to your boat renovating friend? Did he run out of tools, or did he run out of boat?

I stopped reporting on it after I got some pm's from members here (some really hard and rude) saying I shouldn't post more on that, because I was taking advantage of this kid's misfortune to create a humorous situation...and that I was an idiot, by doing that and bla bla bla ....

Which I was not, I never joked about that and the kid, (altough many did, but that's not my problem), and showed my concern with him, his boat and my boat...but since I am in retrieval from here..I just stopped updating the "news"..

I simply have enough stuff in life to keep me ocupied rather than diverting my energies to respond and justify my actions to some disgruntled members of sailnet...that can't get a hard on...

So I stopped...simple but the saga continued...its sad, boat is now officially totalled.

I don't know if you guys are joking or not, but I really do that...I do really get concerned with others think and all that


I swear I try not to offend, but I do a very poor job at that, and I end up being misunderstood or offend someone...I got tired of appologizing...so I stopped saying and doing things I used to...in case you haven't noticed...I got really tired of it.

I didn't find anything inappropriate in you postings about your neighbor. And I'm the kind, sensitive type.

I think you made a good effort in trying to get help for him, and were quite understanding, considering the difficult circumstances.


I certainly wish the young man well, and hope that his (and your) situation improves. I would certainly like to be kept posted on his status.

Again, I think you have done well here, Giu.

While I understand ya having better things to do than listen to candy asses whine about how un PC you are, screw 'em. Peeps don't like what I have to say at times. If they don't like it, DON'T FRIGGIN' READ IT!!! Don't change your content just because of sanctimonious facktards who are trying to put on a front to maintain a mythical image of who they want people to think they are.
