So, unless these guys have some other weird yacht-clubby definition they haven't come out with, there are plenty of "serious sailors" around here. Meaning, these guys are just a bit misguided in their statements.

Now, being a real sailor is another conversation. But that's not pertinent here.
Amen.

This is devolving into the kind of wiener measuring contest I use to hear among my Harley buddies haggling over who was a "real" biker.

Some folks just can't feel good about themselves without trying to put someone else down.

Re: Fond Fairwell

Blah! Chef, I've always enjoyed and appreciated your feedback over the years. You will be missed. Hope the winds bring you back this way. I've found the off-topic related forums serve at least one purpose, they keep the crazies out of the sailing related ones.

Guess I missed something. Where's the member waving? Where are the put-downs?

When we were moored in Annapolis last week, these two boats pulled up next to us. My wife's comment was, "Their owners must have really small penises."

Re: Fond Fairwell

I want to bang my head against the wall for wasting my time reading this thread. It went into the holding tank pages ago. As someone else said never read past page five.

And therein lies the difference, I also remember staying up late reading posts. The difference being I came away feeling I'd learned something.

The place was different when I came here in '05. When it became something else I drifted away so I got to miss the whole split mess. It was all over by the time I drifted back.

Lately I find myself drifting away again. Tonight is the first I’ve been back in a few weeks and the course of this thread is probably the reason why.

But then I'm not a serious sailor. I pretty much just sail up and down the Bay and enjoy being on the water and thinking about one day being able to turn south and keep going.

I'll miss both Chefs. Sailnet needs characters with character; otherwise it will join SailJazz. C'est la vie.

Hey Jim, nice to see you again. Which bay are you in these days - Chesapeake or Barnegat?

Jim
Let me preface my comments by again saying I hate seeing C2S leave the fourms, because he has been a valuable contributor. I saw the threads going off the rails that likely contributed to his decsion, and was saddened to see the souring effect and the inability or unwillingness to drop it and move on. I understand the decsion, but philosophically I agree with those inclined to respond with DLTDHYINAOTWO when someone posts a GBCW message. Its an internet fourm - If you're not getting what you want out of it, them move on.

Now where do I see member waving? Frankly, it starts in the first post, is splattered throughout this thread (and lots of others) and the history that lead up to this thread is swimming in it.

I pride myself on high standards, so my bar looks like:

Matt Rutherford = Big wiener
Rest of us = little wiener

+1.

And, I'd like to add another:


Sam Davies = Big Wiener
Rest of us = Little Wiener (PS - those guys on the coffee grinder are the "serious sailors")
