Live Aboard,Bluewater,Coastal- Who''''s the better sailor?

The Best Sailor, in my humble opinion, is the one who takes an interest in, and is ready to help at the drop of a hat, his fellow sailor... regardless of his experience on salt or sweet water, blue or coastal

Live Aboard,Bluewater,Coastal- Who''''s the better sailor?

Election Update
1 Women Sailors
1 Racing Sailors
1 Warped Sailors (no re-voting allowed)
1 Blue Water Sailors
2 Pirate (sailor implied)
1 Humble/helpfull Sailors
1 Laughing Amputee Sailors

Somebody''s got to call this thing, so with my vote for the Pirate, Pirates have it!! I Guess JEF had the right Idea in conceding, I suspect he may have guessed where I was going? One serious wrong response for Blue Water and the rest don''t matter. My point was the other argument about qualifications which has always led to an argument not just here at Sailnet but everywhere. No one can qualify what makes such a broad term as Sailor. Therefore there can be no real kind of sailor superior than another. Some may have accomplished more, some may have just started, dosen''t matter. If it''s(sic) is in yer blood you are a sailor (mabye not a good one) but you have value to sailing as a whole and to Sailnet. Most importantly to me. I love you guys!!! Man...... I gotta stop drinking. Big Red 56 the Pirate of Pine Island.

duffyM,

It is sure that you jest with the query, "What brand rum?". Of all libations so tagged rum, there is only one truly deserving the name, that being of course Gosling''s Black Seal. All others, while perhaps somewhat effective, pose nothing more than semi-sweet interludes between the enjoyment of Bermuda''s own.

When you''re feeling up to it, may I humbly suggest that you mix a bit of Ginger Beer with the Gosling''s Black Seal, proper ratio is 2/1 Ginger Beer to Gosling''s but that can vary; called a Dark''n''Stormy from the thunderstorm looking head that forms atop the mixture. Bermuda''s national drink I hear.

The bestest sailor I think, is the one who hoists the "Splice the Main Brace" flags and then serves up Dark''n''Stormys to those who show.

DM,

I''m AGHAST! Mt Gay is from Barbados (I know when the bottle is on its side it kinda looks like Jamaica...) But for the Bermuda Gosling Black Sheep drinkers you should try some Appleton''s Estate 21 year old (really from Jamaica) with the Blue and Silver label. I just drained the last of mine (it''s unaffordable or unavailable in the States) a month ago and was depressed for a fortnight.

But on Esmeral we keep a ready supply of Puerto Rican rum to be used solely (no pun intended) to send the fish we catch on to their greater reward without a lot of flopping about.

As to the "better" sailor...my vote goes to the one which carries a supply of sippin'', and mixin'' rums with enough variety to make a killer Mai Tai.

Killer Mai Tai Recipe:
Short Glass with ice
Squeeze of lime
1 Part White Rum
1 Part Medium Rum
1 Part Dark Rum
(optional) 151 Floater
Pour together and hold glass near a fresh pineapple for no more than 15 seconds (you don''t want to bruise the rum). Enjoy while you can still hold the glass.

Jim
"Esmeral"

Mentioning Appleton''s rang a bell so I checked and sure enough a pilot friend of mine had bought a bottle of the stuff you described and gave it to me as a gift. Immediately I had a drink in your honor.

Puerto Rican rums?; I knock down a couple of Ron Ricos w/coke daily, seems to clean out the pipes. Really, Ive never met a rhum I didn''t like.

I have copied your fine recipe for the Killer Mai Tai and hope to have you''n''yours aboard some day to share one. I''ll try to save some of the Appleton''s in case we should meet.
