Before biking season we watch The Wild One, World's Fastest Indian and Easy Rider. Before sailing season we watch Captain Ron!

For a whole page of Captain Ron quotes:

White Squall.

When our kids were young, after the movie they wouldn't want to go to the boat for years.

"With Jean-du-Sud Around the World"

Thanks for the tip. I can't believe I've never seen this. I found it here: With Jean du Sud Around the World. Amazon lists it as 'out of stock', and Netflix has never heard of it.

I've seen "Master and Commander", "Morning Light", and "Wind". I enjoyed "Master and Commander" but thought the other two sucked. Bad. They both embarrassed me and made me want to apologize for being a sailor.

"Jean-du-Sud", on the other hand, reminded me why I sail in the first place.

IMHO -- YMMV

Thank you! The Jean du Sud one looks promising but that site threw my computer into slow motion. Might have to just have it shipped. Haven't seen Captain Ron in years. That should be cheap enough on Amazon...

And whoever said "World's Fastest Indian" -- I really liked that one too. (not a sailing movie)

Keep the expenses low and the good times high.

Really, two pages already and NO mention of Cabin Boy? You should all be embarrassed.
