Re: Sailboaters Stereotype

"Sea Carnies"...good one! Actually, I think that would make a fun boat name. Then again I'd take most of these "shots" as a compliment.

People do react differently according to appearance.........fun to mess with!

Over here no real divide between Sail and Power (apart from the usual wake issue - but that more an unthinking asshat thing than boat specific).

Any divide is more between those with big / new (ish) shiny boats and those without.........never used to be like that boats were a great social leveller (Lawyer or Dustmen didn't matter as long as relationship based around boats), but that all before Marinas and when "Big" boats were not so big, nor a status symbol for those with money - and those just pretending

Re: Sailboaters Stereotype

The lifestyle evolves itself. The less we need, the less we use, the less we need to work, the more we get to cruise. The only reason I am working is because I currently do not own a sailboat, arrrgh, but the day draws near. I agree with GeoPowers, I think if I have to rename my next boat it may very well be 'sea carnie'.

Re: Sailboaters Stereotype

A stereotype often seen in the Bahamas yearly carnival:

Him-- retired,soft-mannered, bearded male on a pension that anxiously follows other soft-mannered bearded males and their wives from one destination to another. The chosen leader is normally the one with the largest boat and is on a timetable.

Her-- retired, oxen-legged female with a butch haircut that steers the boat in and out of marinas as her she-man tends the lines. She normally brings party franks and beans to a potluck and is known to scrape her plate.

Of course, these are fictionalized characters all in the spirit of humor and fun! P.C. approved. Good luck and good sailing, Ron

Re: Sailboaters Stereotype

I'm glad I sailed the Bahamas before those people showed up. Imagine someone with a beard and being soft-mannered. Hummphh! The nerve! And women scraping their plates. What's this world coming to??

Does she have cloven hooves instead of feet?

When I was growin up in the Appalachian Foothills in the 1950's we didn't have Ramen, we ate Gummint food, the free stuff: canned beef, powdered milk, 5 lb. blocks of processed cheese and stuff. It kept us from starving. I worked from 10 yrs old till 66 and enjoyed it, but griped alot, too. I ain't in the 1%, but the 47 or 53% or whatever. I don't understand the 99% folks that want Gummint everything handed to them. I like to stop in marinas as well as swing on the hook. I don't eschew marinas with megayachts. I pulled my little 31 footer right up beside a 150 ft megayacht at Charleston Municipal and enjoyed the same services as they did and I didn't apologize for being middle class. The people that defend our country are middle class. I don't believe rich folk are all bad. Just a thought......
