Fame and fortunes are a delusion. Accomplishments futile. Those that truly exist do not speak of their journeys or bring attention to themselves. Here we have both.

Whereas I, remain silent.

SaltyMonkey, that's me.
Thoreau? . . . Funny! I suppose that's the consequence of internet anonymity. Boy, would you be shocked in a one on one meeting! Good luck and safe sailing. Captain Rognvald--sailing the pond P.S. Thoreau as well as Emerson were part of America's Romantic/Transcendental period of American Literature/philosophy. . . a distant cry from Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, Wagner and Conrad. I believe American philosophy is an oxymoron.

My admiration goes to those that try and make the world a better place at the cost of fame, fortune, or self indulgent "adventure". There's something I could never do. Too many professions to list but I think you get the idea and solo sailing in a Moore 24 is not amongst them.
Buddhism is like any other religion. A poor lighthouse for a navigator, a man of reason.

I am okay with the cost of fame as long as the famous and fortunate one pays it.

Which is the case.

If the society prefers to find happiness in sitting, that's what they are actually doing right now. They all look like little Buddhas too - you can hardly see their eyes in their moon-like faces.

By the Bible, there will be no oceans in heaven. Sailors, HURRY!!!!!!!

I see that you too are not familiar with the Buddha's teachings. Man has the capacity to f### up everything including the beauty of the Buddha's teachings. True Buddhism is more psychology than religion.

Thoreau was a pantywaist, trust fund, self-indulgent skulker baby who pretended to be a naturalist and seperist but actually went home for his meals and couldn't hack it as a survivalist. Anyone who creates a platitude for that miscreant in a signature cannot be trusted with a boat or a capt's hatt and gluvs

Re: Moore 24 Circumnavigation

But DeepFriz and barnakiel get it.

Let me sum it up...

One Boy-Man goes to sea intentionally, looking for ****. **** happens. Then he tries to take credit for surviving. Puts bloated pikture of self on blog. Answer: NO STORY NO CREDIT!! HE DESERVED WHAT HE GITS.

Second MAN minding his own business. Suddenly **** HAPPENS. HE SURVIVES. Now This MAN He gets credit. WHy??? He was minding his own business. Didn't put himself there. HES INTERETIN!

Monkey doesn't mind. Ol' Web loser can go to sea. Have many wives. Hell, have another wifey. 7 - 8 = 10 wives SaltyMonkey not mind.

"Bye mr Webb. SaltyMonkey will take goood care of pooooor Mrs. Webb while Mr. Webb is away. bye bye (waving wink wink)...."

Actually Buddhism is a philosophy or road map to living. It is human nature that created a religion from it. Can't say i have ever heard it called psychology before.

Re: Moore 24 Circumnavigation

I have loved reading every single post on this thread.

I think you have to be a musician to understand the thinking of the monkey. There are shades of tone in the thoughts that transcend the instinctive reactive process to respond as though he has offered criticism, whereas the reality is that a mathematically balanced inductive reasoning is at work.

Either that or its all pants.



How are you Phil, not talked to you in ages since yer last delivery... your not on skype that much these days...

Hey Weavis.. not on Skype these days coz since Microsoft took over I've not been able to load their new system.. the old Skype won't clear.. wankers..
Plus they billed me a hundred quid near enough for who knows what and theres no way to contact them apart from the FAQ runaround that leads nowhere..
Alls good I guess.. still breathing and one foot in front of the other.. 😀
Got a job taking a boat from France to Sicily in Sept.. maybe.. asked him to e-mail direct instead of CF pm's but heard nothing since so who knows..

Re: Moore 24 Circumnavigation

SaltyMonkey is now back....now....what was it i was saying?

First an aspirin. (gulp)

"I believe he is still married to the last one that provides him with his voyaging stipend." so sayeth Boaty.

The stipend was for a LARGER boat. He is using the budget for pub crawls and pizza. I should report him.

If he is such and such a sailr, how come he's not on CF being interviewed and offering advise to all his "friends" here, similar to Rebel Heart? Perhaps one of you should invite him so we can ask him intelligtent questions
