I am certainly not shy, nor was I afraid of the dark as a child. But, yes, this was my first post here. Hello! I live in Ft Lauderdale and sail around all over the place in my 38 ft. Morgan sloop, along with my wife. We'll do more sailing when we stop working come next August.

CSY Man, allay your suspicions as I am not one of the Bumfuzzles - circumnavigators as they are. Further, I'll blow sunshine whenever I please, and I won't ask for your permission to do so either - no disrespect meant or intended. Dave - thank you for the welcome.

Yeh, I like the Bums. I think they're funny. I also think they have a bit of steam in their stride. Good for them. As far as the delam troubles with the builder and the crazy thinking and positions taken by their surveyor, I couldn't agree with the Bums more. Nothing, but nothing, is more infuriating than someone who ignores you when you are speaking directly to them. Shame on the builder and the surveyor.

You are correct Sir, I don't dole out permission to state opinions or blow sunshine in any direction around here.

That being said, everybody is free to comment on other's posts, whether it pertains to anchor choices or cruising styles, or lack off. Also folks comment on other's comments and so on.
Nature of the board I guess.
Don't think we have to agree on anything and therefore a somewhat thick skin is useful around here....

Welcome aboard.

Yea, we are just a bunch of old salts with leather for skin. We may come accross a bti gruff, but the sea does that to ya. Got to be real, or...
So, with that, welcome aboard caryocean. Glad to have you. Don't sahre your appreciation of the Bums, but then again, you might not share my appreciation of trimarans. It's all good

Hi Caryocean and welcome. Umm, not the best of thread to enter the arean on. We as the admin/mod team appreciated your comment to us. But I think the warning should be somehow made when you go to post on this thread than when becoming a memeber. It is just too big a thread with too much history and too many posters taking much of the info out of context and it has been a sore point with a few of us, that as soon as we get a coment made again, we all snap as if it were a fly landing on a wound that won't heal.

It ALWAYS has to be me
You know, since that cat is only half constructed, all you have to do is clone the next half and you too will have a trimaran

I was sitting on the back chair yesterday when I noticed my beautiful gray MOB pole was leaning a little more than usual. Our U.S. flag at the top was really flapping and the pole was bent at about a 30 degree angle. I popped it out of the holders and found that it had a big old crack in it. After a quick brainstorming session with Ali over the merits of duct tape versus hose clamps, I opted for the hose clamp fix. It worked like a charm. Though there is some doubt now as to whether or not it will still float. Perhaps the chat room guys could give us some of their MOB pole words of wisdom and let us know if it is safe to go sailing or not.
Well done Pat!

I think the Brits have a term for Pat. It's six letters and starts with a w.

Not a problem at all.

Another coat of gray paint will fix any crack and who needs one of them pole things anyway?
Hoseclamps? Wimpy stuff.

Go sailing young man, go West and don't worry about delaminating cats, lack of fast food, or other problems.

Happy go Lucky I'd say, hat off to you Sir....
