Re: The Jibster

Jibsters sail sailboats. The rest of us, push buttons to outhaul a sail, push buttons to trim a sail, push buttons to start our yanmars, push buttons to navigate, push buttons to raise an anchor, push buttons to adjust the auto pilot. We spend thousands to squeeze out an extra knot. We have back ups for the back up GPS. Jibsters sail sailboats. I respect them. Me personally? I want to sail fast and want to know exactly where I am on the face of the earth.

Re: The Jibster

that is why I like my GP14.. it is about a simple and pure a sailboat as you can get.

That said, I am thinking of passing it to a guy at work and getting a Typhoon this spring so I can get used to a full keel boat. Again, that will be a "seat of the pants" sailing experience.. just a dry set of pants instead of the constantly soaked pair I get in the GP

Re: The Jibster

if it's a passing fashion statement, you're a jibster.

If you reply "it's a little island you've probably never heard of" when asked "where you headed?" you're a jibster.

If you can afford to do it right, know how to do it right, but still insist on doing it wrong because it's cooler, you're a jibster.

If you don't know how to do it right, seek advice on how to do it right, and still insist on doing it wrong because that is just who you are, you might be a jibster.

If you sell your boat within 2 iPhone releases of purchase, you're probably a jibster.

If you insist on riding your fixed gear bike down the dock, you're a jibster.



If you're just broke and grinning, you're a sailor.
