Re: Stop freakin' waving at me!

You need to sell your boat, buy a shack in some remote mountain place, be self sufficient. It is obvious that you do not want interaction with your fellow man. That's sad.

Done the tug thing too, & I feel for you in these days of GPS sailors. Before GPS, at least some out there had a rudimentary knowledge of seamanship. Today ?????????????????????/
Truth be told, I stay out of everyones way, especially the big schooners. When I'm running a commercal vessel, no matter the curcimstance, It will be my fault if anythinng happens. Even if a jetski rams into me full speed from the side. When I'm sailing, I stay WAY out of the way. I actually hate being close enough to wave at anybody. But of course I do wave when we catch eachothers glance because I'm naturaly freindly. If I'm being an A hole it's usually on purpose.

Re: Stop freakin' waving at me!

RE: Stop freakin waving at me ! have sailed for over 45 years now and I am retired Navy and have traveled all over this world and I have returned many a wave over the years and I don't now of any ill effects of the many times I have moved my hand, I do know that over the years I have meet many a folks on shore that I have waved at on the water. I just hope that one day your not in trouble and the one person that you snubbed would not even lift a hand to help, I know it's the law here but may not be where you are. Sorry that your life has come down to this small minded attitdue. May your sails always be full and the sun on your back--SEABEE--1984 Watkins 29 (CANDO) Great Lakes

Too much interaction perhaps ?

What is far far sadder to me are those poor vapid fools who cannot stand to be alone with themselves and must constantly seek out interaction even though it be of the most superficial kind. (hey who just said internet forumites ? )

but hey fine folk .... this thread has gone all despondent on us .... DoucheBags we may be but but but ...



Happy happy ...
