Your opinions are just that your opinions. No better or worse than anyone else's. If what you read offends you, read something else.

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.
Come on, man. 3 months on the water should have mellowed you out by now.

Ah ain't the world great, some demonstrate absolutely no sense of humour, some have a definite sense of the ridiculous ( love it ) and others see nothing but disgust at the sarcasm shown here. Vive La Difference !!

Here's another one: If you give money to the dock boys, you just perpetuate the problem. And don't think they won't steal your stuff, anyway.
