Re: LFS Proponents Have Lovely Outing

Sorry to hear about you cancellation, Smack. I feel the same way...work is simply a means to support my sailing therapy/habit/addiction.

You definitely need to drag this thread out once per year, to ensure that Sailnet doesn't return to it's stodgy past of discouraging new sailors.

Re: LFS Proponents Have Lovely Outing

Heh-heh. Yeah, that was some of my best work. I definitely don't miss the general attitude of those days (nor a couple of the characters)...but I do sometimes miss the dust ups. Always kept things spicy. Good times.

In the end...time always proves who's right. And that would obviously be me. Booyah!

Re: LFS Proponents Have Lovely Outing

Hey Smack

We were able to set our old technology anchor with 1:1 scope in dangerous force 1 conditions. Does that count as a LFS?

Re: LFS Proponents Have Lovely Outing

Heh-heh. Those were the days Chall!

I am glad things have changed for the better around here since then. And things in LFS-land worked out like I figured they would. I was noticing yesterday there were over 1,100 sailors online at one point! That's pretty cool. SiNcity is definitely hopping. And FC is dead as a doornail! That's cool.

As for the anchor, cape, absolutely. As long as you had some porpoise pate while on the hook - you're in.
