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 ;)

Well, he's not alone down here... but I sadly concede your point.

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?

Feel free to quote the explicit statements about your current gratitude to the KJ & crew for saving your life that I may have missed in this thread. Happy to apologise if my recollection is shown...

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...

After all, you have dodged...

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?)


Quite honestly - your over the top aggression and...

Ah, no. DRFerron is a moderator with extended privileges on HER account. I can back up the fact that your gallery link is inaccessible to us. I can even provide screenshots if you like. The problem...

Re: Rescued at Sea - Are You Prepared?

Actually, we haven't seen the pictures and (frankly) folks tend not to send their private contact details to someone that flips out on them in a public forum. I won't and I can't imagine anyone with...

Actually, this has already been covered. We cannot look at those pictures because we cannot see your SailNet gallery.

I don't have a good one. I already stated explicitly "I don't know what the best practical method is for retrieving someone in circumstances like this".

I do like Dean's suggestions and I'm...

Re: Rescued at Sea - Are You Prepared?

No-one has mentioned being blindly grateful but yourself. No-one is saying "Shut up and be appreciative", but there is nothing wrong in them saying "Be appreciative". Leaving the captain of the KJ...

Re: Rescued at Sea - Are You Prepared?

In the same vein, none of the people in that incident used a lifeboat successfully to perform the rescue. Kind of the point. You cannot state with any authority it would have worked because it wasn't...

Re: Rescued at Sea - Are You Prepared?

Thanks a lot for linking that smack. It's good to get the actual captains of the vessels taking the added risk to rescue people getting involved in the discussion.

Same happening here too, mate. Could be just another bug in the SailNet album/gallery software. I've had nothing but trouble with them since I joined *shrug*

FWIW, when trying to post images here,...

Re: Rescued at Sea - Are You Prepared?

Nobody said that. That's pure fantasy.


No-one said that either. More fantasy.

Re: Am I my Brothers Keeper?

Don't get me wrong - that's exactly what I'm doing. We're still sailing a 16 foot dinghy on the weekends to build up our skills, and we're not likely to ever go much (if anything) beyond 35ft by the...

Re: Am I my Brothers Keeper?

I want to buy the boat.
I let the seller know I want to buy it.
He tells me the issues with it in regards to my being a new, non-race...

Re: Rescued at Sea - Are You Prepared?

Those are all good points and I don't think anyone here is disagreeing with them. I'm definitely not, I haven't seen JonEisberg or SmackDaddy do so either.
