"I just finished my first ASA course last week, and I've got a really nice-looking pair of Topsiders. How come the owner of the boat I crew on won't listen to me when I tell her what she's doing wrong?"

It would have to be a CAT of course - just think of the Karmic implications of six dogs on a cat.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Another day of this thread and they can close down Sailnet for a year or two - there will be nothing left to say.

BTW, I really need to know how many sextants I need to have onboard to go from Boston to New York and if I would be a complete wus if I pushed the EPIRB button when it got dark at night.

I'm having a hard time gybing my spinnaker singlehanded while offshore after the breeze picks up over 25 knots on my 40' boat. Also, my friend says I need tethers and jacklines, what are those?

My friend's boat is named Mayday. Every time I hail him on the VHF, people get irate. What can I do?

Since the dogs eat so much, I figured i could bring a few assault rifles to shoot birds and fish to supplement cans of dog food that I can heat up in boiling water.
For your first post you seem to fit in to this crowd remarkably well.
