Because this site is full of people looking for a reason to be offended. I too took the original post as sarcastic humor.

And for the record, if you anchor near me I will sing you the song of my people. It's played on a little red Japanese suitcase that sips fuel and makes power. And unlike diesel gensets doesn't smell like you're anchored downwind of a school bus

Maybe you could teach me a thing or two about sailing. Im sure you are much better at it than I am. But Ill stay away because its this kind of cynical attitude that sucks real joy out of life.
Chill...just chill. You will have more fun.
I may be wrong, I am an Aussie after all and we have our own sense of humour , but I really do think he was being sarcastic. You know not serious

You and me both. Perhaps the degree of humour that one finds in this post might be is inversely proportional to the amount of times that you recognise yourself on the lists?

+1. Bravo. FYI, none of the "real cruisers" I know consider themselves to be, plus would certainly never try to tell others they are not valid real cruisers. But if the original poster needs to do this to feel better than others, then get after it.

FYI, our cat has two steering wheels, we've been on the water since early March and have traveled from Texas thru Bahamas to Georgetown and now working our way back up the coast eventually back to Texas. I don't consider myself to be a cruiser. But certainly not because the boat has two steering wheels, like the original poster says disqualifies us. Heck, at 33 ft length we were one of the shortest boats in the Exumas! Not sure what value to the boating community he feels threads like this provide. A good one for a moderator to kill.

I think we can all find our selves on the list. Laughing at yourself is fun. Laughing at others not much fun.

Re: Real Cruiser's Quiz: How do you stack up?

Interesting to note that some of the boaters, the ones who have been around the island a couple of times, are enjoying this thread and contributing. You newbies, with your kickers in a knot, need to chill, read between the lines. There is actually much to be learned here, if you care to take the time.

How about this then: "real cruisers" don't label others as "newbies", or tell them they are of lesser importance because of less sea miles.

The value of this forum has always been to share knowledge, support, resources. Not to separate boaters as being real or fake. If this thread was supposed to be ha-ha, then move it to the joke section.

How about anyone who doesn't like the thread not read the threads

Novel I know. But it's a way of chilling. If you don't get the humour, just move on, don't comment and don't read

Problem solved.

Ehhh, we've lived aboard for a decade and have a few mile under our belts. Other than tying up the dingy most points were just the guy being a blowhard trying to prove he was a true cruiser and hoping everyone would agree with him.

Re: Real Cruiser's Quiz: How do you stack up?

Wow, dog poisoning, and cutting tenders lose. What's next, cutting rodes and drilling holes in hulls? Man up, talk to someone that is bothering you, about how to resolve the issue, maybe you can borh learn something.

Probably the best so far!

Cruising is being out there being yourself with a smile on your face

Re: Real Cruiser's Quiz: How do you stack up?

To joke about, animal asbuse, and destruction of property, is akin to sexist and racist jokes, basically not funny material, and if done at all, at best, though, in my opinion still not good, done in private, with people who either accept, you for having such views, or know You don't. In texting with strangers, not knowing your values or reading your expressions, it comes across ,to me, as elitist vigilantism. Your question, gives hope.of a misunderstood attempt at humor. ,I've certainly been there. Fair winds.
