Well, it's obvious that if you do bring a SDR boat back, you absolutely HAVE to pick me as crew. It would be e-p-i-c.

Heh-heh.

Ha, ha, ha.

Smackdaddy and Jon on a boat together for days?....We'd need dental records to identify their bodies.

Cheers,

So do I. That's why of all the delivery skippers in this thread, he was my pick. He doesn't fold when conditions get sporty.

Re: Rallies Gone Wrong

I have confidence in Jon and Dave SVAuspicious concerning passagemaking and weather. I have confidence in Bob Perry on yacht design. I have confidence in outbound's opinion on sleep research.

One of the great things about listservs is the opportunity to correspond with professionals/experts in particular fields of study or experience. Someone can come on this listserv and argue passagemaking with Jon or Dave, yacht design with Bob Perry, sleep physiology with a physician like "outbound", or contract law with me or any of the other lawyers on this listserv. That doesn't mean the lay persons are right, but it does make for good entertainment.

Re: Rallies Gone Wrong

Cool, JW. You hook up with Ausp and we'll turn it into a race. Bob will critique the boat design (which you guys can use as an excuse for losing) - and Out will tell us why we're all so tired when we hit the Chessie...except for Jon...since he will have made me do the majority of the driving.

Then we can get drunk and reenact episodes of Ally McBeal.

Re: Rallies Gone Wrong

Smack thanks to you and the other contributors this has been a most educational and delightful thread. Thanks to you all.
Still at the end of the day after talking with multiple folks who have done the SDR, now getting back into passage making and having my wife do more significant transits as well as emailing with Herb I hate to tell you Smackie I have every intention to do the SDR next year. (Wife wants to winter in Bahamas this year). Sure crew and the boat with be fully shaken down. Sure I will decide on the departure date taking in to account their weather router but making my own decision. However, I believe as long as you don't fall into the herd mentality the benefits far outweigh the negatives. Just the deals on the satphone and how being part of it eases the logistics make it a great opportunity. I think our fundamental divergence is I believe they make it clear to you that you (not them) are responsible for your decisions and safety. Given that I respectfully believe your objections are not germane. As Jeff Foxworthy says " You can't fix stupid".

P.S.- Can others get in on that race? Can see the headline "Dilettantes Destroy Dedicated Professionals In Do or Die Race"

Actually, I think that's awesome Out. Make sure to keep a blog of your experience - with the issues at play in this thread in mind. I would love to follow your story and how these issues play out via an actual objective participant.

I assume you do have at least one bluewater passage on your CV? Heh-heh.
