I've always like the 'math aspect' of sailing. My first boat (LoneStar 13) I called 'a tangent' so I could go off on one. I now have a Designer Choice 15 that I named "Vector X Y"

but words and math are fun for me... some might think they are lame.

What is the point of continuously resurrecting this thread, with the same arguments? It was humorous at one point (a long, long time ago), but it eventually crossed the line.

Maybe it should be closed, before another pissing match and name calling starts.

hmmm

everyone knows Somalians fly pirate flags.. I think they are a lot of things (bad things), but lame wouldn't be one of them


"Somali fly pirate flags"
no luck

"Somali pirate "
also no pirate flags

https://www.google.com/search?q=Soma...omali+pirate&*

I noticed in that famous "Credit Card Captain" video that makes an appearance from time to time, the man at the helm responsible for the demolition derby in that mooring field was flying his Jolly Roger proudly.

These flags may have an actual use after all, to give others warning they may need to fend off a marauder or cut loose and run.
