Sailors are Better than Poser boaters!

All through time, since the beginning of the verbal flatulance, the debate has raged on regarding the virtues of Sailor vs Poser boaters. I for one have stood up and took on all poser boaters who dared roar about their superior methods to traverse the waves.

Well, I told these blow hards that their are significant reasons why sailors are much better people, and geeze these guys hate what I said.

Here are my reason's why I think we are superior: (And I would venture to say that posers are elitists.)

1) We get better chicks, much better looking and smarter.
2) We are much better looking and also smarter
3) Posers tend not to purchase sail boats at all
4) Sailors can drink more
5) We have more disposable income.

oh,

6) Our message boards are better and way more sensitive.

The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!

AND... we share knowledge, experience, compassion...we are supportive of others trying to do that which we enjoy so much. Oh yeah, and we have sailboats.

And we are actually humble people. Because, if you are not humble before you go to sea you soon will be!

AND... we try our best to be pleasant, polite and helpful to all fellow boaters (yes, even the slightly confused ones who somehow forgot to buy a mast along with their hull.)

We realize that if ever we need to call for assistance, the type of vessel that carries our rescuers is not important.

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.
