If we're all drunk, who the Hell would care about any of those things?

But if they came up I could just pull out my assualt rifle and silence will settle amongst the group....

Big anchor and small gun, ( for easy hiding ) and get drunk so you're not afraid to shoot (Liquid courage) and have "Drunk Man" strength for weighing big anchor in a hurry. Let's not forget 100 feet of 5/8 chain, as important as the big anchor.

Might I suggest starting a separate thread with an appropriate title in the relevant Destinations forum? We can make it a sticky like the other SailNet get togethers.

Re: Who from SailNet would you most like to meet in person?

I have been very fortunate. I have met Cardiac Paul and spent a few hours with him a few years back. Great guy he was, he is missed. Then my girlfriend and I spent an afternoon sailing with Smack and we had a great time with his two sons. She still talks about that, I may get a boat now with her blessing. Thanks Smack.
Also we met aeventyr60 when I was in Malaysia a few months ago. Some great hospitality and boat buying tips when buying overseas.

Get out there guys and shake hands. The world is small and we have no idea how many days we are allotted.

BTW, JonB gets my vote. A bare knuckle fight (not really) followed by some cold beer.

YEAH! This is supposed to be about who you would "like" to meet. What's all this stuff about ACTUALLY MEETING each other?

Personally I'd like to see a forum subsection about getting together with other Sailnetters. You could organize events such as are being discussed on this thread or just post where you're going to be on the weekend and maybe someone familiar would knock on your hull with a cold drink in hand. Since Latts and Atts is no more, maybe we could re-appropriate that space.

Who: CruisingDad
Why: Because I'm currently a part-time SailingDad and would like to someday become another full-time CruisingDad while my last two kids are still around

---- the rule-follower in me says to stop here as the thread intended, but I have a couple more I can't pass up ---

Who: Maine Sail
Why: Because I'm pretty sure that by spending a couple of hours with him I could triple my current knowledge about boats and still only maybe scratch 1% of what this guy knows

Who: Capt.aaron
Why: To hear some stories that I could pass along to my grandchildren someday! "I met this guy once who... "

3 GPM pressure washer pumps often come on sale for under $300. Anything with ceramic plungers will do, and are far more strongly built than the ones they make for watermakers. Membranes I got a good deal on, but the prices for them have dropped a long way since. I welded up my own membrane housing out of 2/1/2 inch sch 40 stainless pipe, which fit the 540 GPD membranes perfectly. Then it's a a pre filtre from the hardware store, some hydraulic hose and a few other fittings, a V belt and pulleys off the engine.Not much to them.
Certainly not $4800 worth .
