Re: This Is Tough to Admit, but About Two Years Ago . . .

top sliders are THE worst things invented and still called deck shoes. slide like crazy. bare feet are so much simpler and safer than top sliders. funny what yotties do as followers--will buy anything called deck shoes IF some one they are impressed with wears em..even if that soul is not a true sailor. cant be a true sailor and still praise top sliders. sorry-i find that absolute truth. yuppies wear em, not sailors.

Zee any thoughts on the stump jump pump am thinking we could sponsor you if you wore a pair and professed their quality, the new version has a grounding terminal for attachment to the boding system.

Zee, you might use the new stump jump pump as an emergence dinghy anchor when the replacement shows up....... or better yet use it to repel boarders by attaching line to one of the holes and swinging it around and around to make them keep there distance as you hurl profanities at them with your loudest and most seafaring voice....haha

Re: This Is Tough to Admit, but About Two Years Ago . . .

Anyone tried the light neoprene slippers with rubberised sole that surf board riders wear? They look useful but not avilable in my 14 EE.

What about Vibrams 5-fingers? I'm using them for minimalist running training--they were originally made for boats.

I'll put in a plug for Vibram 5 fingers - on the sloped deck of a J-24, they are way stickier than tennies, topsiders, or bare feet. Not good shoes for introverts, though, as they attract lots of attention and start many conversations with curious passers-by.
