You know the knife Dockhead tied to the boathook? Well I have used similar plastic ties!

Re: Overboard -- Again :(

I'm still trying to figure out how do you go from painting houses, to a Hunter, then an Oyster?
Is he going to end up with one of those Yachts with a helicopter for a dinghy next?

Re: Overboard -- Again :(

You never finished the story of the rope in the prop- did you have to haul it out and how DO they anchor those lobster traps?

A sailor's yarn to dine out on,
thanks for sharing, particularly the lessons learned and perhaps we all learned from your forgiving attitude towards a fellow sailor. Here's to peaceful cruising!

Re: Overboard -- Again :(

I enjoyed this story.

Well written, good humor, and illustrative of how a Friendly gesture on the water can cool hot heads, lead to mutual understanding, and possibly good times shared...and a good sea story.

Good lessons too. Thanks for sharing it all.

Ahoy All Sailors! Do you need experienced crew for a long voyage either coastal, Atlantic, Pacific, Caribbean, ICW, or across an ocean in 2016-2017? I am available. See my CF Profile "About Me" page for details. Happy to lend a hand!
