Sailnet couples?

Guess I can't make jokes about Navy sailing anymore; Dan just joined Sailnet!

I know MMR & Chuckles; Saltwater Suzi & Larry, are there other couples who both post?

My wife posted (here on Hersailnet) using my identity a couple years back and created quite a stir with others here thinking she was me with schizophrenia. Since then, in spite of my urging to join under her own identity, she hasn't.

ADMTROX = xort's better half, and having met them I can attest to that.

Is Dan going to use Cap'nEryka on his signature like MMR uses admiralChuckles on her's or are we supposed to figure out for ourselves who is who?

He's "wingNwing" - his favorite point of sail because he likes the challenge. Me, I prefer to just relax if I've got the luxury of going downwind, so I tack from broad reach to broad reach.

He said he wants to e-meet you all before the raftup in June. But now the Navy has decided they need him as early as 26 May, so it may be just me after all.

Mary and I will likely be in Portugal still during the raft up - We are taking up Alex's offer to sail down the coast on Guiletta. We really figured it was a once in a lifetime opportunity. I haven't said anything yet in that thread because I'm not wanting to give that up.
On the other hand, ya'll are practically neighbors, if you ever want to drop in and sail on a catamaran just PM for phone/address info. You can even bring Dan

Thanx Chuckles, we'll probably do that, perhaps later in the summer when the air's too light to move our heavy monohull. I've only sailed on a big cat twice and couldn't get used to the very different motion. But that was in the Caribbean in very different sea conditions from the Chesapeake, and I'd love to give it another chance.

Have a great European trip - are you going to post photos when you get back? And will they be photoshopped in Alex's unique style??

I couldn't imagine what you mean, photo's? photoshopping?

I asked him to make my avatar based on my actual pic and a pic of a 'cat' that CD posted, so not a victim at all - and yes, I am indeed quite pleased with it. One must admit a certain, how do you say, repulsiveness but on the other hand I'll bet a lot of folks have captured it, and zoomed in

It's probably that same, perverse curiousity that makes a person slow down and take a closer look at roadkill as they're driving by it.
