Yeah, it''s proably a good time to refresh the thread. I have a good hi-speed system but I''m sure there are some who might get annoyed having to wait for the up loads.
As for the e-mail, sure, why not! There might be those who may want to share their experiences off line
. If someone wants to get nasty, well the delete button is a touch away!
I too, have picked up a lot of good info from this site, as well as others. But Sailnet seems to be the most active and has been hanging in there for a while. Plus I just received another $500 worth of stuff for up grades and they are polite and proficient in getting their goods out!
As far as my experiences, It amazes me the precise organization that God has provided for all of mankind. The wind and the sea provides the easiest means of travel weather you are by yourself or if you need to move mountains. In sailing vessels, No ground is disturbed, No fuel
is burned. The food and water is provided. And if you live outside of FEAR you can travel the whole world. The sun, moon and stars are another part of the whole design. Even as a kid, and being raised by an agnostic mother, I knew there was a creator with a wonderful system to guide us on our way. I use to wonder the woods in the mountains, unsupervised, and was always able to find my way using the sun and moon. Got in trouble with Mom a couple times!
And as a Tool and Diemaker, I''m in awe how mathamatics all falls together. That could not have been an accident.
The thing I hate are the jerks that do evil in Gods name. "God made me do it." or "God allows bad things happen" How ignorant can people be. We all have a free will, if we choose to take the wrong path then so be it. Using the wisdom of the bible can keep most people from harm.
That''s enough for one night, have lots of work to do on the boat tomorrow. Getten''r ready for the 4th. and a 2 week cruise up the Canadian coast.
