Does Alex then truly not know understand why men own boats - to creat opportunities for female clothing reduction??? Sure women think different, let them.

But which is it? Either you lack an understanding of the true purpose of sailing or you only sail with men.

Come back to the US, I'll check into that same hotel room and leave a "laptop" in plain sight on the desk while making it known that I have to be away all day and won't be back until very early the next morning.

Of course first we will install a dye pack, as used in bank cash drawers, in the laptop, and rig the hard drive's accelerometer (Lenovo's and Apple's have them) to set off the dye pack when the laptop is in motion.

Then we grab the bright red hotel employee, extradite them back to Portugal, and produce an award-winning YouTube video on "High Speed Keel Hauling".

We'll be famous, and before they die they might even tell us where your laptop went. (Keelhauling normally being 100% fatal, please make sure you do not have your bottom painted or cleaned in the interim, it needs a good layer of septic barnacles on it for good results.)

Is that worth doing, or what?! I saw your video and decided, damn, I could use some time on the water like that...what could I do to make Alex bring me over and take me out sailing now?!
Hellosailer has a good idea.

A slight variation on this could be instead of keel hauling his a$$, just drag him over to the former neighbour of Alex, and tell him he is going to back to the US with this guy and the passage will take 3 days. If he likes, you can show him the 'budget' accomodation and the entertainment system. The poor sod will probably suffer from a sudden colonic spasm...


No better way to blow away the bad experiences with a nice little jaunt to the outer markers and back. This weekend will be great, as there is a high over DE at the moment, and it's sun sun sun 'til Tues

bubb2 Good for you Alex,

tdw Must be quite a treat to be able to leave your slip and be out there. For us, with the Womboat moored nearly eight nms inland its a hike just to get to the open sea. It's good when the weathers a tad nasty and it gives us lots of protected anchorages but nonetheless I like your situation as well.

Valiente Meu Deus, my Portuguese is good enough to follow what wasn't blown away by the wind...Obrigado, Jose!

Damn, Alex, that looked sweet. I assume it was about 22 C with enough wind and a flat sea...or flat enough! It's nice you are friends with Jose and take him out for a ride after he has protected your boat from crazy neighbours with power tools.

Even though you've had a couple of hard weeks, you still lead what we call a charmed life.
