Actually, I wouldn't mind sailing and tossing back a few with most of you peckerheads.

I gotta say like Smackdaddy, I would knock back a few with likely all but a very minor few here, you all are a cool bunch of folk.

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

Good call on meeting Bob Perry. I'd love to chat with him about boat design, hear more about his interesting life in the Taiwan yards and if he wanted to I'd be willing to answer any medical questions he had about Spike.

Another boat designer that's been conspicuously absent from this list is Brent Swain. I really get a kick out of when we're discussing watermakers, or AIS or the like and he pipes up with "You don't need to spend 2 grand on that. I welded up one from scrap metal and 2" iron pipe!". Funny thing is, I believe him when he tells us he has welded up an AIS transceiver or a time machine from $2 worth of metal. I belive him and I want to see it!

As for the fuzzy one, I plan to meet him and the whole Aussie Sailnet contingent when I'm down there. Heck, they're as rare as hen's teeth so it's not like it'll be hard to meet them all.

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

I would like to meet all of you! On the net this is somewhat possible. If It is pick one I must go to a far of land to seek adventure so all the wonderful sailors here and close to me are left out in hopes that by a slim chance it may happen. PCP Is in a far distant land across the sea. My pick for the moment The first thread I got into Fin vs full Keel With wolf and Jeff and others sharing the salt for a newbe like me Thanks to all, Lou 452

Wooo-hoo!! Let us know when you're coming over and we'll chuck an extra shrimp on the barbie..

Be great to meet you.. only TDW is 500-odd miles north from me, Bent is another 50 or so from him, SimonV is another 500-1000 depending upon exactly whereabouts he is.. and that's just the major few on the East coast. Then there's Ilenart over westwards..
