I'm not as involved as some of you are. But I would say if you got to this point, then you need to get a life. At least get a hobby. It's really amazing how some folks get all wrapped up in these message boards.
Life's too short for this crap.

Scott,
I don't think you know the whole story.
Your conclusions are way off base.
The person that posted that has probably contributed more to these threads than any other sailor. He knows more about boats, standing rigging, running rigging, sail trim, etc... than I will ever know.
Not that he isn't an AFOC, he certainly is that.

You might want to reconcider your view.

Giu, has more life and lives more than many of us here, and he is one of the most knowledgeable and active contributors to this board. To tell him to 'get a life' is just out of line and ignorant.

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.

Dude,

I realize this is in open forum and everyone has the right to express his/her own opinion. But, in this case you are way off in yours. This guy has made muliple freaking training videos for this forum and contributed countless, drawings and 'how to' posts to help people he will never know. He has put himself way out there and unfortunately sometimes he has gotten slammed for his trouble. Yes, he takes liberties with photoshop and his jokes, but they are funny and I enjoy his humor. If he wants to take some time off, why can't you just let him. He deserves it. Unfortunately it is comments like yours that may just drive a great resource away for good.

Sounds good buddy...but befor you go, a couple questions..

1) do I really need hose clamps on my through hull hoses..I mean they are really hard to get off with them on.
2) How can I keep leaning the same way when tacking...I mean, we no sooner get all the stuff below organized for one lean and then we have to rearrange everything for a different lean...is that what a canting keel is for????
3) Last one...How much batteries will I need to use my bow thruster to return to port if I blow out my sails...

Please respond befor you leave cus I really need to know this stuff..




Your vacation is really colse Alex...I hope you and yours have a wonderful and peaceful one...dont you dare take along your laptop.. I hope once Im back in the water Im less visible here also...And remember my PM Its an open door.

Ah, Giu's right. He just needs a break. He get's burned out every so often, usually when denied the resources of a conveniently located IHOP, and there's nothing wrong with him that a good short stack, a rasher of bacon, four eggs over hard, some toast and hash-browns, and perhaps a side of omelet won't set right. In the meantime, he should fly to Michigan; we're going to stake out a couple of catamaran sailors over a bucket of blood this weekend to do a mosquito inventory. Should be great fun!

It's funny how the clueless one tells the other to get a life.
