Sailneters Are Great People

Hi All,

I loaned a simple hole saw to a local Sailnet member, LB Davis, so he could install his new solar vent.

About two days ago I left it on my steps for LB to pick up, and this morning when I left for work it had already been returned. What amazed me was that LB also returned it with a six pack of an expensive local micro-brew!! Wow ! Thanks dude!

We do have a really good group of folks within these forums and I just thought you guys might like to know how some of them act. This is above board behavior that makes me proud to be a part of these forums.

LB could have purchased a 4 3/4" hole saw for about the same price as the six pack so his behavior is amazing considering what he borrowed.

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.

I loaned this Sailnet guy a Dremel tool, and the next day he left a big bag of pot and a stack of Playboys with some rubbers and chewing gum on my doorstep.

Having met many of the Sailnet community myself, including some with whom I have disagreed with in off topic, I can say my experiences have been nothing but positive. And that includes da Hawg!!!!
