And this story is about as big as it gets from one of the nicest, most knowledgeable sailors on this site. It's long, but it's great:
Smacky, As to your assertions, I am reminded of a cartoon character's aside to the audience:
"He don't know me too well do he".
(I can't remember who said that though).
However, Thank You for the kind words.
Speaking of not being able to remember stuff....In the spirit of this thread, ( and I think I like the spirit of this thread), I wanted to share an experience.
The maiden 'voyage' of our first boat, "Restless".
But since I don't remember stuff so good anymore, and I'm too long-winded with the keyboard. I thought I would just scan the first few pages of the Log of our first real boat.
But as is often the case, what I thought would be the easy way turns out to be simply frustrating and time wasting. Stupid scanner.
I can't make the darn things small enough to attach.
After about an hour and a half, I just grabbed my camera and took a picture of them.
It's hard to imagine that some people think that I know what I'm doing.
(if you think that was bad, you should see my longhand)
