3. Technical, or how-to post, quickly morph into ego driven pissing contests.
4. Gun on boats are more trouble, lots more trouble, than they're worth.
5. Some very small boats complete some very amazing voyages.
6. Lee shores suck.
7. Women are great sailor too.
8. Cruising vessels are not so much measured in length or displacement, but rather in cubic dollars.
9. Oh, and did I mention, sex is always better at sea.
Very funny. It's nice to read a not so serious post from time to time.

Re: Things I've learned on Cruisers Forum

I joined while I was building my boat. I learned that I would never finish it, it would cost 77,000,000 times more than buying one, and would flip, break up and sink as soon as it touched water.

I also learned that I didn't have enough experience to go sailing, and that I wouldn't have until I had circumnavigated a couple of hundred times.

Also that my motors don't work, my anchor is crap, my fridge and freezer are rubbish, my dinghy is too big and too small, has the wrong type of motor and cost too much.

Basically everything I'm doing is either wrong or impossible.

It's great.

I bet all those prophesies are coming or have come true, right?

14. When they aren't fixin' sumthin', helping the well-prepared/unprepared, or chastising the well-prepared/unprepared, cruisers love to talk about sex on cruisersforum.com.

Re: Things I've learned on Cruisers Forum

I'm trying to amass enough empirical evidence regarding sex at sea being better (or worse - we must keep an open mind) than sex on land.
My scientific training tells me that in order to form a viable hypothesis, I will need to have sex with a population of "n" nubile young females, both on land and at sea, before I can speak with any reasonable degree of certainty.

Therefore, I am willing to allow nubile, sweet young things the free use of my body, both on land and at sea.

applications are being accepted now - hurry

Well, that is a problem to start with - eliminating the goddesses .

Goddess are in such high demand that I'm afraid few will apply. Although any that do will certainly be allocated a places in the front of the impossibly long line

A little unscientific I feel; you seem to be limiting the concept of sex as something that occurs between you and certain "nubile young females". Surely you know there is more to it than that. You need a cohort of all ages, genders, sizes etc to make this "more" scientific.

Unless you would prefer to be unscientific and just take whatever turns up
