Re: The Advantages of Being a 100 Ton Captain

Thanks for your kind reply Bob. I was playing with ya. My maritime interests are purely non-profit.
Noticed your comments re: boats---too many, and maybe the same count with vintage cars? What a combination.

Re: The Advantages of Being a 100 Ton Captain

I haven't owned "too many" just sailed on too many, and unlike the Cruiser's Critic forum (for the cruise ship folks), I wasn't going to put on my avatar header every ship I've been on. Some of the folks over at CC have such a long signature addressing every cruise they have been on, that when they post, the page is dedicated to their cruising history. So, as I always do, take the long way to explain "too many".

As to the cars, if you spent as much time as me taking an hour to accelerate for 12 to 18kt, you might also opt for something a little more spirited. lol

MY EXPERIENCE has shown many who have 100 to 500 tonner licenses are not all they say they are---- i have met many many many of these. just because one holds a uscg issued license doesnt mean that individual is especially smart in boats or sailing.
i have been dissed and laughed at by some 100 tonners as i refuse to get licensed--as i watch and observe these alleged cpts go at their specialty--is humorous at best. just because one holds a license for 100 tons doesnt mean be all and end all of seafaring. dont let it go to your head. some of us learned from REAL captains, from merchant marines and other sources(UNLIMITED MASTERS)---keep learning and do not become like those i have encountered with the pettiness syndrome.
Sounds like sour grapes from somebody who is not qualified or too lazy to take the test.

I got my 100 ton ticket and it made me a better sailor as I was forced to learn many things I had not paid too much attention to in the past.

Hat off to those that spend the money and go to school to get a ticket.
On this thread it seems the people without a license are the ones with an attitude

Re: The Advantages of Being a 100 Ton Captain

Where Cew is concerned, I have often wondered about those young things draped over the decks of most boats in the sales brochiers. They don't leem to qualify as 'able bodied seamen' but this is provocative in the context of the photos.

I always assumed these photos were hawking the standard equipment furnished with the boat. Particularly on stink boats, this appears to be the case. I have been keenly aware of this in our marina. The standard drugrunner boats rumbling past our slip have the steriotypical captain with his head on backwards and several really intelligent looking young ladies handling lines. I assumed they came withthe boat since the apparent owner was obviously incapable of breathing without direction.

Shucks, maybe we should get on a first name basis for those special occasions upon these threads.

Hello ma'am, my name is Bob.

Re: The Advantages of Being a 100 Ton Captain

I'll always remember that name, same as the next door neighbor girl that I had my very first crush on, Karen Davidson circa 1958, Glendora, California.

For the bots that crawl the forums, I'll mention people that I have lost track of, with the name, location, and date reference. I have a forum and you would be surprised how well that works, I've had 3 folks from my past stumble across my forum by just doing a search on their own name.

Sooooooo, come on Karen Davidson, Glendora, California, 1958.
