I think ya kinda missed the point on yoof music

Whatever the genre always some good stuff (even if not to taste), and plenty of it's time and no further - but that's part of what it is and no worse for it.

God Save the Queen!

That's a good point, and I get that it's all about angst and letting off the nearly-impossible-to-control steam of youth. I just wish it would involve some, well..music? Synthesized drum beats and turntable stylings are cool, but it kind of sucks when that's basically all there is to it.

But then, music is so damned subjective. I did read a study once that linked certain types of intellect with musical appreciation. Mathematical minds generally like the complex, multi-tiered stuff like classical orchestral pieces because they present something of a challenge to follow everything you can hear simultaneously. More interpretive/artistic minds appreciated simpler music, presumably because they could interject meaning or elicit an emotional response from very little input, and sometimes all the extra instruments/activity interfered with that process.

Classical Music = Elevator Musac

If Beethoven had been such a Genius he would have included an Electric Guitar. A Trombone............and some Words

Try the 1812 overture - they have cannons. That should do you nicely...

Mark,

Next time, if you have wind just raise the main, heel the boat over about 20 degrees and let 'em roll off onto the dock.

Still have to remove the life lines though.

Mark,

Next time simply walk them off the stern into the water and float them to shore like hogsheads.

Agree with Mark. Classic! Although with regards to Underwear Guy, I remain permanently disturbed by the visual.

You should watch the Philipino channels. They are experts at Hop hop. This one is old but they come up with new stuff all the time.

wel i found that i could assist scaredy or drunk or fat cats off the sloop by tying a boat hook pole to the coachhouse grabrail pointing down to the toerail, and then fastening the boat pole down and fastening it to the bottom of the boarding gate stanchion. this made sort of a 'handhold' . then they got onto their A@#$es on the side deck, holding this handrail and slid their feeties towards the dock where someone was waiting to grab onto their hands. took at least 3 people to do this assist because someone was dockside to pull them to their feet , someone else was on helm and a 3rd person was holding a line making sure that the boat didn't slip sideways away from the dock. what a P!@# in the @#$.

never again. if i had to rig this 'handrail' to get someone off, it was a bad decision to invite them at all.

We recently added a nice beefy 4x4 post to the dock up north, through-bolted to the dock main beams and with a few of those handles you see in the handicapped washroom bolted to it. We installed it so that certain folks with degenerative joint / mobility conditions (arthritis, etc.) can keep using the boat, and it works very well.

Given the emphasis we put on hand-holds in the cockpit and cabin, I'm amazed at how few boats (and docks) have something that you can really hang your whole weight on when boarding or disembarking. A lifeline stanchion is often just too flimsy and too short to feel like you can trust it with your weight.

I think it is a good thing to be able to laugh at oneself, especially at a time when this trait is on the decline.
