Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

I don't know about others, but I come here for fun and games, entertainment, relief from tedium and boredom. It gives me an opportunity to practice writing and humor and some greater insight into...

"What we have here is a failure to communicate.."

I am giving up. Some of you have a reading comprehension problem. I have realized you will never get it.

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

I am truly open to knowing why this matters.:)

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

Yes, I am crying myself to sleep at night, being calling childish names by people I don't know, who don't know me, is extremely damaging to my delicate psyche....;)

As a lawyer, I go out of my way...

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

It appears Sal gets it, most of you don't and never will. I have no interest in racing and no need to compete in any formal setting. I certainly recognize I don't have a competitive boat and I...

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

What is ironic, then, is that this sentiment is rarely expressed in the boat buying threads.

In fact, a small number of us who join in and urge folks to start small and really learn how to sail,...

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

I disagree. If you want to understand what trolling is, start reading the comments sections of some of the new organizations. For any controversial issue, there are some posters who simply post to...

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

I view the world of sailing forums differently than many others. I still believe the interesting thing about my video post, both here and on SA, was the strong reactions it generated. That says...

Re: Never been in a slip

You are definitely missing out on one of the greatest experiences in life. It is quite exciting to tie up at a slip. The wooden piers are all quite different, from weathered planks to newer wood...

Re: Best place to buy a secondhand sailboat

The trick is to find an older boat that is in good shape in the areas that matter.

Don't worry about whether the paint is shiny or whether it has the latest and greatest gear or whether the...

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

Yes, in my book, absolutely. I think Triumph makes a cool bike. I don't understand why more people don't ride them.

I heard a biker say the way you know you have ridden a Harley is the amount of...

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

On the autocross topic, I will add that one of the funniest scenes played out would be the occasional event where some poser shows up in his expensive Ferrari thinking he is going to bust loose. ...

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

Actually, you raise an excellent point and you carry the Zen concept to a different field. I autocrossed a Miata for 3 years and saw quite a few Honda Civics and Corvettes in action. I also...

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

Thank you - that is a great question and fits exactly into the point I was trying to make with all this. I will explain my post.

This was not primarily about self-aggrandizement. All I have...

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

Obviously, some of your excuses, justifications, and rationalizations for his poor sailing are meant to be humorous.

It is scary to realize that some of you are serious though in your thought...

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

I don’t even engage in discussions with Smack – it requires too great a time commitment and it is largely pointless.

Bubblehead believes he is a good debater. I respectfully disagree because...

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

I plan to start using the term "lifestyle sailors" instead of "picnic sailors", which latter term is not really fair to most picnics, which can be quite enjoyable.:)

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

You are not the only one concerned.

We used to get a free pass through the metal detectors at the various courthouses. Now, we too must be inspected.

Apparently, many expect lawyers to soon...

Yes, I tone it down for her. My wife is beautiful, inside and out, and very understanding.

Neither of us is possessive of the other's time. She is completely understanding of my need to spend...

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

I find the reactions to this quite amazing - look at the emotional energy people have invested in this, how strongly they feel about it.

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

Remind me again – why would I want to promote sailing?

I am enjoying the decline of sailing – it seems to be in my best interests. Slips are abundant and cheaper. Boats are much more affordable...
