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.:)

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...

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.

I am sincere in my points, but used mock outrage to express...

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...

Yawn...some of you get it, some of you don't, and probably never will (even with a 13K post count - in fact, especially with a 13K post count).

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

I will carry this a bit further for your edification, because this deals with the contemporary decline of real sailing and the philosophy of sailing…

I agree, many of these "sailors" would probably be happier with powerboats or houseboats, but "sailing" has a cooler image, evoking scenes of freedom and independence.

Re: Around the world on a 500-buck San Juan 24? He's got guts for sure..

I agree. As long as he did not come on here first, seeking approval, good for him.

(I am assuming there is no "Would a San Juan 24 make a good blue water boat for circumnavigating?" thread.)
