I don't see how boarding their boat can happen. If I have time to screw around with their boat, I have time to save my boat without boarding their boat.

You're asking if I had to hit my wife, would I still avoid hitting my wife?

You haven't put much thought into this, have you?

It sure is. It's to be avoided at just about any cost.

Re: Boarding someone elses boat

After wading through all this, I think the answer is obvious. If Jammer's boat is in a marina for any length of time, no matter how little, he would be well known and I doubt anyone would be interested in rendering assistance to him under any circumstances.

Problem solved.

Re: Boarding someone elses boat

In every case, J has been cryptic in his answers
to what he would do if he caught someone atop
his boat. This behavior in polite discourse is
quite aggressive. He seems to be enjoying adding to
our worry while trying our best to be good
neighbors in sometimes traumatic instances.
We don't know what kind of boat his is. We don't
know his name or where he keeps his boat.
At every reasonable suggestion or query, he's
come back with contrary arguments that don't
hold up, each seemingly meant to incite.

I suggest it's time for all of us to back out of
this useless thread.

Re: Boarding someone elses boat

Somewhere out there is a bridge with a "vacant" sign beneath it.

Re: Boarding someone elses boat

jongleur, that sounds like a version of ad hominem.

But I thank you for backing out.

I just love how someone living on stolen land, gets so caught up in their property rights.

Re: Boarding someone elses boat

A boater could be unusually reclusive or protective for reasons other than concealing illegal activities; in fact the opposite could be true if, say, the unusually private boater were in the federal Witness Protection Program. He may have thought that the kindly-looking silver-haired couple in the newly arrived boat in the marina who had offered to silence his halyards were actually sinister scouts for a Columbian drug cartel assassination squad and that "silencing his halyards" was a code phrase for an execution plan.

I'm not. I'm Native.

Nice try, though.

I suppose the reverse sentiment would be "what did you expect? Here we go again..."

This must be some kind of well known inside joke... Can someone explain it to me?
I'm from around here.

Re: Boarding someone elses boat

Put me in the save a flogging sail group.

I've done it several times. If I know the owner I tell them. If I know the owner to be knew to boating I tell them and consider discussing how to properly secure the sail.

Furthermore, I consider those actions to be respecting the property of the owner.

And lastly, if I don't know the owner I tell nobody. And now I know why that seems to be the best choice.

Stop avoiding the question by using some made up wordy answer.

Would you or not board a boat to save someone's boat? Don't go into any word play, the answer to the question is yes or no.
