Re: Maintaining Good Vision

Good God Jon, that looks damned hellish! I've been in some miserable conditions but that is just a big fat "Nope!" from me. Then again, not much chance of encountering it on the east coast of...

Re: Biggest Decision of my Life - Need Advise

Re: Blue Water Boat vs. Production Boat – Which one will you book passage on?

Depends on what you consider fully equipped. Definitely some folks around here that think one doesn't NEED everything one CAN have on a boat. I know my definition of "fully equipped" has far more...

Re: Greatest fear?

FWIW, I am aware of the irrationality behind the fear but it doesn't stop it being there. I honestly care more for her safety/wellbeing than I do for myself and that translates into more fear about...

Re: Greatest fear?

Honestly, my greatest fear is for my wife. Whether it be her being gravely injured or being left to cope if I am, I am disproportionately afraid of her being adversely affected by mistakes I make...

Re: Vibram "FiveFingers" shoes

Don't have that brand, but got a similar pair for dinghy racing... that said I prefer going barefoot if I need the toe grip. The things are bloody uncomfortable and slicing my foot on the venturi's...

Re: Experts, Hero's, and Screw-ups

No, I run that pretentious git down with my car then accept the subsequent arrest and apprehended violence order as worth it... like a real hero. :p ;)

Re: Experts, Hero's, and Screw-ups

Whilst I'm inclined to agree with a lot of what you are saying, I don't think the description of the thread in question is entirely fair. The thread basically exploded because people disagreed with...

Re: Rescued at Sea - Are You Prepared?

Or you could simply say that "I am currently grateful to the captain & crew of the KJ for having saved my life". I've presented that option several times and it stops the argument dead once done.

Re: Rescued at Sea - Are You Prepared?

To paraphrase ye olde smackdaddy - Doug v1.0 seems "happy" enough in those photos. Not sure about the level of gratitude being expressed then or with Doug v2.0 now...

Re: Rescued at Sea - Are You Prepared?

That doesn't mean the problem isn't with SailNet. Not to mention I've provided you with an alternative that I know works (TinyPic remember?)
