Do you feel better now Med Sailor....got it off your chest did you.
Don't start with your pretend legalities quoting Maritime Law. You act like you are an expert with the last word. There are enough lawyers on this site, who would probably disagree with you. I work with and for 525 lawyers..thy re called the Congress of the United States and not only can they not agree on any laws interpretation, they are not held by most in the highest regard right now.
Get real man this is the Internet...don't get so serious and high and mighty...don't blow an Artery here. My opinion as I stated or did your anger prevent you reading that, is only my opinion. I have every right to it. I have the right to have a closed mind just as this young man does. Are you stepping up to mentor him or s this just a diatribe against me and my opinion. Step up to the plate with Huck, mentor him. I dare you, and would applaud you if you did. Stop pretending and writing about it just help him. Do it.....just do it.
Will you...of course not. More hot air.
See maybe I am tired of him whining and reaching out to others to solve his problems.
No way do i think i am always right or think i am the only voice or others agree with me. in fact i prefaced my post saying i doubted anyone would agree. If you don't like my posts...don't read them. Whether I have a closed mind or not, I have an opinion, which I have the right to have. Even if its nt a popular one, I still have it and am willing to say it. Your value judgement of it doesn't make it wrong if you disagree or verify it if you agree.
As far as mentoring is concerned you know nothing about me ....rather let me turn that around...we know nothing about you except you post on the Internet. For all we know your don't even have a sailboat. I do not assume that, but I have seen that happen before on here plenty of times. I am not afraid to mentor people or be mentored. This kid refuses to listen. Read his previous posts and history.
Again this is the Internet, try not to take things so seriously. It's really space......not reality or have you lost sight of that.
To some in here I have met them in person, and my reputation with them is important to me and has been developed by PERSONAL eye to eye interaction, it is not just an Internet thing.
I apologize if I rub you the wrong way and raise your anger and blood pressure. Feel free to not read what I write if it causes you such angst.
