This is the quietest sailing group that I have ever seen. No ranting, no
bragging, nothing.

If you want ranting and screaming about everything but sailing try
alt.sailing.asa
I don't even bother anymore because if there is sailing content, it's
too hard to find and soon changes to a name calling flame war.

yeh .. I spent a year or two there. It got too hard to read through the
dribble and chestbeating. There wasnt enough time in my day. So I lurk there
occasionally. But thats it.

Well, some one has to bite, I guess.

Any one in who? Or is that any one in whom?

Aside, I wonder if perhaps we have been too good at answering
questions; perhaps there are no others in quandry?

Did I just answer the question?

I take it back.

I actually bought a powerboat, a 14' 25 hp o/b. Any one have a copy of
a ' 90 mercury 20 hp o/b owners manual or shop repair manual, or know
where to get one?

The zoomer will be a water taxi for anyone who wants to rent my
sailboat next summer, if I am able to manage it. (Where are all the
American tourists?)

My pancreas cancer operation was a huge success, unfortunately or
fortunately, depending on your point of view, the surgeon is famous,
the students all passed, I got to do my civic duty as a training aid,
they discovered I did not have pancreatic cancer, only a cyst blocking
my bile duct, caused by firewood logging up my mountain. I dropped a
log on my guts.

Now, I have the commonly occurring (after deep abdominal surgery) major
inguinial hernia. I carry my guts around in something that resembles
one of my wife's girdles.

At least the surgery was free, as will be the remedy, eventually.
Another good thing or two: I can borrow the girdle indefinitely, and I
can now get away with wearing lady's underwear and I don't have to sail
my bilge keeler on the ice.

So, I am in lady's underwear who?

P.S. How you doin', Skip?

Put a hook on it and you can use it instead of the bosuns chair.. See, there
is always a positive side. :)

Ahh, yes! The Algerian Hook, if I recall Madame Toussaud's tour
correctly. I feel I have already suffered it's indignity enough.

Thanks for the reminder.
