Thanks for the support BL, but I'm alright.

I probably have been a bit douchy and trollish in this thread.

Re: Stop freakin' waving at me!

You ever notice that wave ( like ocean swell surf wave) in spanish is ola, and to say hello you say hola, and to say hello over a distance, you wave? I don't think you are a douche' welshman, And I take back what I said about flipping you off and mooning you if I see you, but I'll sure as hell wave enthusiastically. There is another tug boat captain at my company who will never wave, so we seek him out and wave to him like he's in a parade just to piss him off. ( he is a douche')

Don't you go getting all soft and soppy on us now Welshman, HTFU.

Hell, even the AFOC thread turned into a love fest and Fight Club is for pussycats.

What we need is a SailBag thread, SailDoucheBag that is. I'm up for it. No posts, we all just sit and glare menacingly at our screens muttering malevolently but oh so wittily to ourselves.

We could all get together for a Sailaway. Raftups strictly forbidden, first person to mention "Sundowners" gets the plank, Rum and bile the drink de jeur.

Soundtrack by Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits.

Wow ... that could cheer me up immensely.

haha ... It was a shame to lose dear old SailAway21 ... even if he did think I was a communist. Silly old bugger.

Good to see your name crop up as well Chris, trust all is well with you.

btw .... Sway apparently FaceBooks. If you send a PM to Cameraderie he might be able to help. (Cam doesn't post here anymore either but he does still PM)

Re: Stop freakin' waving at me!

Man, you go away for a day and come back to find a hundred posts on waving! I get the OP's point--waving could get tiring in a very busy channel. But I doe it and like it--I take it to mean, Hey we didn't hit each other but we could have! I like to think that sailboats and motorboats waving to each other might increase the courtesy and understanding between these different species. I did draw the line once when a large motorboat that was in the process of nearly swamping us, waved!! Thought maybe he was being ironic, but could only return a less friendly gesture.
