Re: Our "Take The Wheel" experience at Annapolis Boat Show

As I assumed she would not be alone and depending on the day I wouldn't either. My kids and wife love to sail. I didn't realize this was such a strange offer if I were single yes, that's why I mentioned wife kids. Anyway offer stands. Pm if you two get up this way and want to sail a 30 year old cutter like your threads ask about.

It wasn't a strange offer - check the "Buying a 30 to 40 year old boat" thread and you'll get the joke.

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.

Re: Our "Take The Wheel" experience at Annapolis Boat Show

I'll explain it here...

I mentioned in the other thread I was an electrician and avid woodworker. Jon warned me, jokingly, that I'd better be careful about making that common knowledge or I'll get a lot of SailNetters wanting to invite me on their boat.

To me it had an added bit of humor. My dad called me one day (c 1975). I was still in my electrical apprenticeship at the time. He told me he was buying a cabin cruiser. I said, "You're going to buy a stink pot?" Months later he called me to tell me he bought a sailboat. "A sailboat?" I asked excitedly. He replied. "That's what you wanted, isn't it?" It wasn't long before I realized he really meant, "That's what you wanted to fix up for me, isn't it?"
