The next thing they'll tell you is "you didn't spread it thin enough." Yeah, right! I heard that one a few times. If it's one molecule thick, it's still awful! Though..... after a few years of eating it spread nice and thin, it does grow on you, a bit like a yeast spore... I actually craved it once, in Tasmania, with a hangover, and it was quite the cure.

I love the photo of you and the boys. I can practically taste it all over again!

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Sorry I missed this news Smack, big congrats, that looks like one heck of a boat. I am really pleased for you guys.

Great writeup on the process as well.

Our boat was also launched in 1989, and we replace the standing rigging shortly after we purchased her in 2011. It was a chunk out of the wallet, but several thousand nautical miles( and a few BFS's) later I am happy to enter anchorages still finding the mast where I left it.

Now if you run out of the Vegemite let me know and we can send some over

My daughter has it on toast every morning. A quick easy dinner for kids is a couple of spoons tossed through spaghetti, and sprinkled with a bit of cheese.

Your little daughter is way more manly than we are.

Where are the write-up for your sails dude? I'd love to see what you guys are doing.

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Smack did you really put a big ol lump of that on your tongue?!?!?!

(just looked at the picture more closely)

Dear god.

That's not what you're supposed to do.

Had marmite on toast once, spread thin. Wasn't bad. Haven't tried vegemite but my good friend Wallance in Jerusalem will for sure hook me up this summer if I'm man enuf...

Oh yeah, we all "chomped the lump".



Why waste all that hideous flavor by thinning it out over a cracker when you can go full-on?

Remind me never to send you OJ concentrate

I actually laughed out loud read what you & the boys did. I've never, ever done that and I don't intend to... and I've been eating the stuff all my life. Think of Vegemite as a seasoning. A terrible one that one should avoid at all costs, but if one must have it, go lighter than you would the salt & pepper

Cheers on the photo of you & the boys.

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

What's really funny is that the boys have punked all the other kids in our neighborhood - telling them it's an "exotic Australian food". They all had the same look on their faces.

Robert Perry is now hated by an entire enclave of gagging children.
