The Captains bitch refers to someone who is under the complete control of the captain in terms of having to attend to every wish and whim........ and that in turn depends on the wishes and whims of the captain..... In essence, in Brit land, where we have a huge history of apprenticeship, its tantamount to learning from the basics up.......

We, and by we, I mean atoll, boatie, me and others, have warped it slightly to assume the element in everyday discussion, but not REALLY refering to the female gender in particular..... but a female MIGHT be the captains bitch........ as well as the noob who is learning to sail under the captains wishes and whims.... with or without the factor.

I hope to hell you understand because I am so lost now.........

Oh.... some Americans have the same sense of humour.... after living in the States for 12 years, I reckon I could irrevocably turn someone on to Brit humour in 2 days........ this also applies to Canadians as well, although they are a lot more polite about it..........

I need to lie down...... I never though the day would come when I would explain myself.....
I never thought I would like catamarans either
but I do. A lot.
gary.... getting wimpy in his old age........ atoll.. beat me!

postscript.. some Australians are close to the Brit humour...... but you have to accept that they tend to say say 'goodbye" as a greeting (second word is 'off') and until you get used to it... its like having the punchline first and then explaining the joke.....

I now wait patiently for the full force of the flame from Americans and the Aussies..... the Canadians will just assume Im being 'precious"

jes kidding fellahs.......

Yeah you all are going to have to explain that one to me. To get a sea kindly one takes mega $$$, and what do I do with all those extra rooms soloing?

The only sailer I like these days is the Shannon 53HPS....... No really, its fenom..er... fernom... pheno.....

Very Good.!

I am not going to do a world sail......,, I dont want to pack everything away before I move.. I tired of jigging on a line in a rip or a lump......

I will be in the harbour or marina most of the time and reckon I could either walk round my kingdom or rent out rooms.......

Funny that. I was in love with Nords for the longest time. Then a friend who had another friend who had another friend who had a Nord came to Miami and we went on it for an afternoon.. I kinda lost my love that day.

But the Schulz design is something else. I cant afford one. I can only drool and sneak the brochures into the bathroom with me....... but if you view it on youtube.... oh my good gravy........ such a beautiful vessel.

I used to think and do the same things, bathroom reading material and all. Then I got a good look at one in Elizabeth City and her looks disappointed me. It was that aft deck and the hardtop over it, I think.

I like the concept, just not as pretty as I thought she'd be.

On Focus... Boaty landed? In his intended destination?

I quite like the look. I love the way it sails..... YOu do know Shannon will alter ANYTHING as long as the hull and weight and balance stay the same? Just ask, just pay and it will be done!

my kind of boatmaker.

No steak tonight. It looks like our intrepid mariner is making good way East. It looks like he made a fuel stop.
