Re: Shameless plug

There may be no "I" in "team" but there is only one "U" in "It's your problem."
Love that quote!

Been there, done that Brian. My hard buoy story just might be more stupid than yours but I am not as brave as you are about baring my (stupid) soul to the nattering Nabob's of this cyber swamp. It also happened on someone else' boat, so I really can't say...

We race our Tartan 27' on the Hudson River and use navigational buoys as race marks all the time. This means that we are often trying to go around these red, rather large, metal buoys as close as possible; usually with an almost 2 knot current running. So far we've missed taking the paint off the buoys but we did once snag the racing buoy that marks the end of the finish line. We did not do any penalty turn(s). Now I know what RAF is in PHRF scoring lingo: retired after finishing. The worst part of it was that you get no finish time and are scored as if you had not raced at all: dnc = did not compete.

I enjoy making a nice, tight rounding of one of our big boy navigation marks but you really have to be able to see under the jib to pull it off. Time for a "window" in that big 160% genoa of yours?

Re: Shameless plug

Avenger, it is a personal prejudice- I enjoy Buffett's novels, but not his music.

However, stunningly, I realize that this is not all about me.

Okay, we'll add a buffett tune or two to the list. What else besides son of a sailor?

Re: Shameless plug

The obvious choice would be A Pirate Looks at 40. But if you're willing to add a slow, sad song, The Captain and The Kid is pretty much my favorite of his songs.

Re: Shameless plug

I was thinking a pirate looks at 40 as well.

I'll try to come with others from different artists
