Re: Do you Sail and Sailnet?

Humm I sailnet and I sail but when I sail I sailnet rarely.

Sailnet is more to the off season, to sail on the chair. It is true that for some time (two tears) while I was waiting for having a new boat I posted a lot including in the summer. I hope that it will not be the case in the future cause it would be a bad sign

So, I don't know what to choose on that pool.

Absolutely not. I would prefer to follow this pattern:
1. Sail as much as possible, commensurate with my work and family obligations.
2. Resort to sailnet in an attempt to gain knowledge and re-experience sailing.
3. Become frustrated with idiotic posts, trolls, and sock puppets on sailnet.
4. Lash out at said idiotic posts, trolls, and sock puppets on sailnet.
5. Regret my maliciousness, delete posts, and take temporary break from sailnet.
6. Return to sailnet for more knowledge, preposterously vowing to be gentler and kinder.
7. Repeat ad nauseum. - James Wilson
Total agreement with James here....Sailing is one pf my prioities and it does ranl abopve my internet posts, Family first though, work second, friends third, then sailing and our yacht club. These are REAL. I also then repeat steps 5 and 6.

I have met n person quite a number of SN posters so there is a lot of positives of the internet experience also. I havent met anyone in person on here I wouldnt have a beer or dinner with again. Some have become part of our mix of sailing commrades we get together with on the wate at various times. Some we have met during our cruise from the Chessie to NE and the LI Sound every summer.

This year my wife and I ( without counting a few deliveries I have done) have traveled approx 1300 miles on vacation cruise and 2000 miles in our normal weekend and extended weekend sailing ( we avaerage about 60-70 every weekend. We use our boat from the Ides of March till Dec 15. Our days usage is clos to 90 per year.

With that we have internet capability and sometimes a half hour on Sailnet happens, However like most others my posts dramaticall y decrease on weekends and they are mostly about where we are going or have been that weekend.

Jesus James with that babe face you are one of the less malicious posters around and without a mild irony the world would be an unsupportable place.

I would hate to see you gentler and kinder. You have both qualities in abundance, be a lot more and you will be just boring

Regards

Paulo

Paulo,

Thanks for the encouraging words. That just shows I have gotten fast with the "delete" key.

Re: Do you Sail and Sailnet?

No TV or internet aboard. If I am there, I want to sail or repair/improve the boat. And sleep.

Re: Do you Sail and Sailnet?

I'm not much of a photographer but am about to acquire one of those GoPro thingys and a tablet. I fear that might increase my SN involvement on board.

With all the techno-wizardry you have on board already and knowing what a dab hand you are with it all.. I await the results with glee (and the odd chuckle for good measure).
