sailhog I could be wrong, but I don't think so. Why someone would admit to sailing a multihull boat after reading that... it's beyond me... Sailingdog obviously needs medical attention. He might even require a voodoo witch doctor.

sailingdog I'm sure Dame Ellen would be interested in your definition too.

sailingdog Sailhog-

I think you've got the descriptions reversed...

sailhog Ragtimedon,
Webster's Dictionary defines race as "any distinct group of human beings." Catalina owners are distinguished by their rugged good looks and good taste. People who race sailboats are also of a race also, and are distinguished by facial tics, an affliction of genital herpes, and a tendency to suck their thumbs with their sphincters. I'm not making this up.

RAGTIMEDON Charlie, what do you mean by saying it is a shame we have to share the water with them? In my mind, the real tradgedy is that we have to share our insurance premiums with bozos like him!
As to calling Gui a racist -- he hates Catalina owners. Could you really call Catalinaa owners a race, by any meaning of the word? Well, yes, even turtles can race, I guess..............

Jack Tar is a sailor, but tar is listed as a synonym as well and dictionary.com gives sailor as one of the definitions of tar.
Just for the record: Very good... you get an A+ on your NC History test!!!!! I am a NC native... your updated answer is %100 correct.

Sailaway... you are exactly right about the states history of producing Tar, Pitch & Turpentine too. So.. the term "Tar Heel" is derived from a couple different sources. There are others too that i can't recall of the top of my head... or the bottom of my feet!


edit: one of these day's i'll learn to spell.
