I dont understand "why" people slam your boat,its not like you sail a Catalina or god forbid a Hunter! I didnt even catch the misspelled wrods and I could care less that you tell those godawful big ass lies! People need to get over it! Give Don the credit he deserves for being one of the most knowledgeable and interesting members on this forum..I dont care what people pm me about Don L,I think hes great...

Now, if Don can pick up where BlackOak left off, we would have the best soap opera in the world! Don, when are you going to Bermuda? <Subtle hint>

Re: I'm an idiot and lair

Hunteritis is a curable sickness. It has a well established 12 step program. Step 1: Turn off the internet. Step 2 : unplug the shore power. Step 3: Slash (dont untie) the dock lines.(you dont want to come back). Step 4 through 11 include Joy, Fatigue, Poverty, Fun, Fear, Beer, Fresh Fish, etc etc. Step 12 is sitting in a nice anchorages, saying "I should have started this years ago". Have the best of times._____Grant.

Those people are also idiots and liars, I'm sure. [/QUOTE]

those people do not deserve to be called idiots or/and liars (new meaning was made up by Don), they are just asshouls.

Re: I'm an idiot and lair

you may or may not be an idiot and/or a 'lair', but you're definitely a lousy speller.

i'll bet your one of those people who don't know the difference between 'lose' and 'loose'. now those are the folks who drive me nuts!!!!

I'm an idiot because I believe that the boat designers and builders know more about boats than I do so tend to take their word over internet posters. Somehow in spite of this I have not killed anyone or myself and have fewer boat problems than "normal" based on all the threads I've read.

I'm a lair because regardless of any true life experience I post about my boat someone always trashes both me and my boat telling me how wrong I am. Since I just say the facts of my experiences and it doesn't match the facts they want to believe, I must be a lair!

If only I had realized the truth long ago
Don-- did you have a bad day???? And I LIKE HUNTERS, even owned one.

Now now, you're being too hard on Don.

And if the 'loose' gets to u, and you know what I mean? But the young just wanna .... and their wicked teachers want them to get more better by no longer teaching cursive writing.

Re: I'm an idiot and lair

The BIG lair that Don has told is..........

.......that he doesn't actually have a Hunter!

- he sails a 3 masted wooden schooner, with 300 miles of hemp, 2 tons of brass and 12 acres of varnish - built in 1874. FACT.

I found a photo of Don's Hunter that might explain a few things.
