Yeah, I saw those same reviews. So far they've worked okay in testing. I'll let you know how they do.

Other posts coming soon on all the other projects we're doing over the winter. It's getting completely out of hand.

Always good to have a layout of everything you have to make sure you're not missing anything essential, like batteries for the emergency beacon, radio, flashlight, etc.

Smack, Better not tell you how my kids, all 4 were sking at those ages, then again, they started the winter they were three, could ski down a beginner run by them selves. Age 6 or 7, doing diamond and some easier local doubles! They even had a few silver mugs from some ski races. One had the fastest nastar run at age 5 when nastar existed......so any who........guess skiing 2-3 days a week during the season will do that to you!

Oh - yeah. It is really weird. Those mods do seem to protect some very bullying goofballs...including a few of the mods. Oh well. It's another forum.

Don't worry - full write up coming soon.

The funny thing is, the last post of mine that they deleted was one where I was joking with that dude Exile. He typed this:

"I had a dingy girlfriend once who hated riding in my dinghy. Is this what you mean?"

And continuing the joke on the definition of "dingy" - which can mean either "stupid" (like he's using it) or "dirty" (like most British people use it), I typed this:

"Was she stupid or just in need of a shower."

My post was deleted and I was permanently banned within 20 minutes.

You make the call.

I can see buying a starter boat, then spending 5 years looking for your perfect boat while you learn enough about yourself to know what "perfect" is. But she brings indecision and over-thinking to a whole new level. I wonder how long it will be before their patience with her runs out over on CF.

Hey Smack: What BFS did she actually do? Or did she just buy some of your gear? Or hit you up for a freebie?
Search this thread. She put up a great BFS story of an epic sail she had with her dad. It was good enough to qualify as a "Featured Throwdown".

Call me skeptical, but I believe her "endless search" might now just be entering its 'Middle Stages', at best...
