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.......
Come a long way since Montey Python huh? Nowadays British humor can be explained.....

Perhaps this would be more to your liking (not my cup of tea, but it seems more wholesome than the McGregor hybrids, and certainly not a slug)

Avast ye Plato and Socrates lovers!

Russell and Camus too!

Nothing compares to the simple truth that "you can't always get wot you want."

I want a smart skinny 40-50 something woman.

Lucifer can have my soul for one last great love.

Pardon the thread drift.

The very song which was uppermost in my mind when I typed that line, Wotname !


I recall quoting the title line once, commiseratingly, to my erstwhile signf other ...

(I intended her to understand it was silently prefaced with "isn't it a bugger how...."

but to my everlasting dismay, she demonstrated a strenuous lack of interest in what *I* actually meant by it,

let alone what the Stones did....)

I too thought so, and then I looked at the photos for an hour. Some of the interior layout is slightly strange. Odd placement of fittings like the washer dryer, it has the feel of the space just being used instead of designed.
Not sure I like the wheel steering placement... seat missing for the helmsman and the view forward appears blocked by the weather cover.

I also dont like that its 30/50 gallons an hour at cruise speed of 15 knots. To get any economy it has to cruise at 8 knots. Not sure about its ability to actually sail......... could not find details other than the manufacturers site.
In saying all the above, with a few changes if it is a good sailer, it is a fine shape.

You are likely right Ann. It's unlikely he's run short of 'necessary' provisions this soon after leaving his last port.

I do hope there was no (personal) pumping out done Atoll!
