Re: the advantages of being a 100 ton captain

...I have seen this happen before on other threads where an individual feels it's their duty to kick sand in the face of a poster that is just being light humored. Then the avalanche of he did, she did starts.
Rebel...everyone looks happy in the photos and I admire your career. I feel knowledge is in all areas...books, classes and experienced old timers. I'm sure you have tapped into all.
You've probably heard the analogy of peeling the layers of the onion as to finding knowledge. However, when we get to the center of the onion, it exposes an onion field...start peeling!

Would it have been better if the picture was of a plate of cheese and a nice bottle of wine?

Props to everyone who has maintained that this thread is ridiculous.
Hey Rebels wife.... good to meet you... see why he's got that cheesy smile all the time now...
Look on the bright side... your hubby knows who's who on here by now... and who to ignore... me for one..

Competence depends on skill and experience. This is a training 101 fundamental principle.

Skills we typically get through a mix of doing and learning. Experience generally requires time and application of skills in different ways.

A licence typically indicates that we have learn't. A licence does not imply we are competent.

Red Charlotte....I did not know you were Rebel Hearts wife! How nice. I knew he was married from postings I've read, but didn't put you together.

I recall you being treated shabbily over a sincere question and him coming to your defense, and now your support of him. BEAUTIFUL.

Don't let them get you down or keep you off the forum! We need to hear from more women who are good mates, support "the life" and want to make a home on the sea!

Warmly,
Darby

@Red Charlotte
Dearest Red,

That is one fine avatar, Eric is lucky dude. Sailing for a living, having you and the little one to come home to each night, doesn't get better than that and I hope you post more. IMHO, this thread was at least 75% fun and frivolity.

Re: the advantages of being a 100 ton captain

Entertaining thread. Good one Rebel, and look what we learned about a few posters' backgrounds.

Best line: something about if I wanted half-wit opinions, I'd get a mirror.

Thanks man. It's a pretty nice world over here. The little munchkin is putting her dolls night-night right now; it's adorable.

And having a hot wife is nice.

Re: the advantages of being a 100 ton captain

For me to be home every night I'd have to night mate because I don't have local, complete piloting awareness for any port, and that elusive harbor pilot gig is way beyond my resume. Harbor Pilot is the best gig you can get, home every night but still pulling down what you would being gone a month at a time. Of course could leave the dry California sunshine for the PNW and get on the Washington State ferries. That would be a good gig, not to mention for vacation, could cruise to Alaska.

A girl I know has a boyfriend who's a bar pilot somewhere on the mississippi. She tried explaining it to me but apparently to get some big stuff up that river you need a couple different types of pilots.

I know he got the job because his dad had it (and he has the experience). He told me to be a pilot you "need to be the pilot's son or sleeping with his daughter."

Re: the advantages of being a 100 ton captain

A bit of fun is always good. A lot of fun is better. There are always those on any forum that want to spoil it and make it something else, and i have not been here long enough to know who those are. The worst thing is if folks stop posting up the happy side for fear of being shot down by the angst ridden few. We should applaud anyone that puts up a post that brightens up anyone's day. They took the time, made the effort. Smile and say thanks, don't scowl and find fault.

X2, and I keep forgetting on this forum just posting X2 doesn't fly because it is too short of a reply.
