Who are you calling old you young whippersnapper. In the late 50s and half of 1960 I was in the U.S. Navy protecting your boney butt. If it were not for us OLD guys, you YOUNGSTERS probably wouldn't be around.

See you on the bay this summer Chris, and I'm buying the Margarettas.

Webster definition:

Entertainment.... 3. Amusement or diversion provided especially by performers.

Blogs and forums only have value as entertainment, as attested by the most trusted posters. We are all performers, nothing more.

Hey, that was pretty entertaining! Maybe you're on to something here...
I see you are up to your old tricks again. You'll never change. The fuse is burning.

I didn't ask your age, I asked if you were young enough to still consider having children on your primitive vessel, which you failed to answer.

Yes, I am much older and wiser than you are, but I just put the wheels of an aircraft on the centerline of a runway in a snow storm about an hour ago. And, I had more sailing experience than you have now, before I was 20. You got nothing on me squirt............

Chris,

Interesting exchange, it appears Minnewaska is a pilot. I am surprised he didn't offer you the advice of "There are old pilots and bold pilots but not very many old bold pilots", IF you decide to do the ICW motorless

This is awesome! I was way too tired to go out tonight for a move, but now I've got another reason to make up some popcorn!

Ok gentlemen the popcorn is ready. Remember to count 10 full paces THEN turn. Have at it!
