My Favorite Thread(s)

I am sure everyone has their own. At least one that stands out in their memory against the blur of many thousands.

Perhaps you have several?

Here is the place to post a link to your favorite CF thread. Dig deep, do a search, I know it's out there. Thanks for sharing!

Asking for an opinion when you don't have/offer one? ... My least-liked subject is mono versus multi-hull. My favorites are discussions concerning the San Francisco Bay/Delta.

No one is interested in my opinion but since you're asking here is my favorite thread you ever started.

Your favorite sunken boat

Even though it's three years old and only a couple people ever responded to it, I appreciate the fact that you tried to share something that was of interest to you and that what you tried to share was pretty cool.

Oh, oh, oh!!!! I can't find it! But my all time favorite was the gentleman that bought and sailed a boat from (I think) west coast Florida to the Keys. In his real life he was married with a daughter, they lived in Texas. Bought a boat on a whim, or perhaps a midlife crisis IIRC. He was a motorcycle enthusiast. He sailed the boat solo. I think in the end he decided to sell the boat and return to Texas.
His posts and his writing style were so humorous, and so honest! Especially his first post and the description of his first sail. Wish I could find it, I'd read that one again!

Scoobert:

Transit Time? NY-FL

One of the funnier ones.

He "made it" but he was and is still a jerk.

He started a blog and is still reinventing the wheel.

I wonder how Blackoak is doing?

Re: My Favorite Thread(s)

My all time favorite has been "Pictures of Anchors Setting," but I must say I am enjoying the "Bestevaer 49" thread a very great deal, and Evans Starzinger's thread where he was breaking lines of different sorts.

Re: My Favorite Thread(s)

Definately my favorite is videos of anchors setting by Panope, with photos of anchors setting being a close second. Both nicely satisfy my anchorholic addiction...

That was wonderful, and what a charming fellow. You could make a book out of his posts. I'm really sorry that he gave up cruising and that this community has lost him.
