Cruisingdad.

No doubt. He is one of the most stand-up dudes I've ever encountered anywhere online. I personally owe him a lot.

I've been very fortunate to meet several other SNers and actually sail with a few. I hope to keep up that tradition. I also hope to one day take BobP up on his offer to hang with him at his shack. That would be pretty damn cool.

(PS - There are a few others I'd like to meet in the ring. Heh-heh.)

What I miss most about our meeting was the fact that I did not get to meet Chase and his other brother. (As you can see my memory is lacking)

I don't understand all of you that say you want to meet Dad.
Now his wife Cindy, that I understand.

all of Lady Chatterly's folks (that's the people that hang in chat day after day). Them first, then everyone else.

Paulo from Portugal = PCP. Is there anyone who knows more here on modern boat design and has given all so much info in one thread, INTERESTING SAILBOATS.

I hope there is a chance to meet up with him this summer.

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

Well, if we get to pick more than one, I should probably have listed CharlieCobra also (thanks for the reminder, C2S!) ...but given the that my introduction would be something along the lines of "Did you bring your tools?" we'd be far too busy to chat about Sailnet.

I'm surprised no-one wants to meet 'old Fuzzy (a.k.a TDW). He's an interesting guy... really!

Great point. I don't know how I forgot about TD. Another one of the best.

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

Way too many to pick just one...

I'd like to see SN step up and host a Moderator's conference somewhere geographically central to us all (say.... Tonga?... Bareboat charter?... just thinking out loud.... )

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

I've already met about 100 sailnet folks, and I hope to meet a lot more. I was hoping to meet Captain Aaron a few weeks ago, but the weather turned nasty when I was scheduled to go Key West by boat. Maybe in another couple weeks, before I have to head to the dreaded cold weather of Maryland.

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

I know he's not a member, but I would like to meet Jeff on his last sail to be reminded that my "problems" are about as important as a gnat circling a cows ass standing by the highway while cars roll by at 60. That said as far as members there any number depending on the thread I'm reading and their response, but I'd say Gary ^ for doing his trip at 70+, way cool or bljones or smacky for their blogs.

Any well educated right wing Republican with a happy outgoing personality who takes his seamanship seriously. That's quite a few folks here.
