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

It's winter time, so instead of discussing the usual....

Who from SailNet would you most like to meet in person? I can honestly say that I think we have a really good group here and with the very rare exceptions of posters that have come and gone with <10 posts just to attack, I would like to meet in person anyone from SailNet.

For this thread please list the one person you would most like to meet from SailNet and why.


For me, it's a tough call. Since I have to pick one, I think I'd like to meet Cap'n Aaron. I bet I could learn a thing or two from his experiences or at least enjoy a good sea-story. He seems like a really interesting and fun guy to have a rum with and I'd really like to actually see him haul up that ridiculous anchor setup of his.

What about you? Who would you like to meet and why?

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

Hmm, tough question. Lots of people with lots of great stories. I'd can cut out the religious types right off the bat, impossible to hold any sensible conversation as it always comes back to "I'm right because I believe it to be so". I'd also cut out anyone who never has a drink, can't trust 'em. I guess they'd need to speak English (arguably that cuts out all the Americans, but I'll let that one ride). No-one with a boat over 40', there's just no need.
*shrug*, dunno. It'd probably be fun to sink a boat and then a few beers with Smacky, mostly he seems a guy who likes to talk sh*t and doesn't take life too seriously. Or someone else. Or no-one.

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

For me it would have to be Jeff_H. The ensuing discussion of yacht design and the stuff I'd learn about getting the best out of my boat would be enormously useful.

..but it ain't ever likely to happen, so I'll make do with meeting the many Sailnet members over here instead, and not limiting the discussion.

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

Good question.

I have met over 50 or 60 already and talked to numerous others on the phone, We are lucky in the Chesapeake as we have a really active group and get together a lot over the year including having an annual Rondevous. So I hope to meet most in my region sooner or later. I got to meet Mainesail (my idol) Chuckles and David PM in October who i followed over the years. Jeff H is a really cool guy too.

I am hoping to meet some of my LI brethern on my trips up north. Like Caleb, Tempest, Rob Gallagher, and Bene ( We have talked though)..

I am going to put down the following names as I think they will be more difficult to meet becasue of geographics.

BLjones- knwledgeable,we got off on the wrong foot, seems like a good guy
Sequitar- not just his voyage, but he loves and knows his food
Faster- so evenhanded
JonEisenberg- knowledge and is usually even handed for an old salt
PCP- I goota know what makes him tick and hes very knowledgeable
CarlieCobra- boat building knowledge
Cruisingdad- need BBQ tips and need to show him how to use a knife
Jameswilson- like his stories and to argue politics
JRD22- love his boat
BLTski- seems like a good guy
Minniewaska- we but heads but over margarittas would have a good time
Hellosailor- have always enjoyed his posts
Melra- cause you seem neat...and can put up with gary
Jackdale- to discuss politics
PBeezer to argue politics
Killary-sailor- his stories have to be great
Cupper- to discuss politics
Marcel- Just because
LT Goshen- Just because
Medsailor-to just talk life as I like his life philosphy
Hillnme- good guy


There are so many geeze. I feel lucky and blessed to have met so many, and when i comes down to it many of us share the love of the sea and boats. I have come to the conclusion that after looking at my PB friends who are nice, and just love to party, the sailors really all have opinions ( strong ones too). I think that comes from not just anyone who wants to sail can and just do it. You have to have knowledge and like a challenge. With that comes a personality mind set which is semi type A or strongly type A and opinionated. Id rather have that than a bunch of dead heads.

This is my only reason for being on Sailnet really to gain knowledge, the commradierie, and I believe in paying it back to get others interested. A family ( kids/ couples) that sails together, spends time togther on a small boat out in nature gets a special bond. I am glad sailnet exists as it makes it easier to meet similar "sailing" people.

I hope I someday get to meet the people on my list and have left many others off

Any of the right wing posters in the "sewer" - in a bare knuckles brawl at the back of the yacht club parking lot.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

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

Everyone!!! with a few...and really only a few exceptions.

BUT that wasn't the rules was it???

CruisingDad.

He is just a damn nice guy who knows alot of stuff about boats but very really feels the need to make sure everyone here knows he knows alot of stuff about boats.

For those who have been around here for a few years you will know that he has been at different times the Sailnet peacemaker, ass kicker, ideas man, joker, voice of reason, optimist, realist, catalyst and negotiator.

Bromance OUT.

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

Like chef, I have met around 50-60 folks already. I don't have any particular reason for wanting to meet any particular person though. I just basically like putting a face to a name. And if I get off my lazy a$$ this spring, I'll meet a bunch more.
