Re: Seasick & Singlehanding

travelineasy most of the people I have sailed with who were under the influence of pot still had their mental facilities far beyond most after a really heavy toss at sea. I'm talking HUGE tosses here. In fact tosses that would have freaked people into Davie Jone's locker had they NOT been stoned. I know what I am about to be hammered with on that last however,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,sound and reasoned judgement can be subject to enough battering about the cabin until there is little left.
Stoned people seem to not be affected by that issue.
The "oh I just busted my face and am bleeding all over the place" or the "Oh I just lost 3 front teeth and ain't I a shame now" just does not enter into their psych like >normal people< in very real and serious situations that can and do happen. Couple that to their not being sea sick in the most demanding of situations,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,
What the hell do you want for a crew?
I'll take a bunch a weed heads over closet case psych drug useres any day.

Oh travelin those symptoms you describe are all part of any normal teenager making passage to adulthood.
Don't even try to go down this road with me because I have studied human psych too.

Re: Seasick & Singlehanding

My crew - I don't want weed-heads, crack-heads, nut cases or psycos. I want someone that knows what they're doing at all times - sick or not. And that goes for onshore as well as offshore. Weed-heads and crack-heads, IMHO, don't have enough common sense to hit themselves in the a$$ with both hands let alone man a helm or tiller. I don't want to put my well being in the hands of someone that don't know what zip code they're in, and anyone that does is a damned fool.

Medical grade pot does a wonderful job for those that have to undergo the horror of chemotherapy. Someone that smokes pot just to get stoned, well, IMO they shouldn't be doing anything more mind challenging than sitting upright in a chair.

No "normal" person ever goes through life without contemplating that. If you have never thought about murdering yourself you simply are not normal.

Too funny this
Just because his mind reacts to pot in any certain manner means that ALL minds react in the same manner.
My advice to him would be avoid the weed boy, your mind ain't built for it.

So these are the people who you want aboard your ship?
I'm not sure I believe that but for the sake of argument let's agree its true. I'd like to see your reference for that until I can research it further.

But your statement roughly was Paxil creates impairment and you wouldn't want them sailing a vessel you were on and furthermore you would notify the authorities. People committing suicide due to depression whether on or coming off an antidepressant has zero to do with your argument. Neither men or women generally chose to commit suicide via a sailing 'accident' in case you decide to go there BTW.

I assume since you have no factual basis for your argument you will now resort to mocking my user name? Or is that a typo and do I owe you an apology?
