pirate Things I've learned on Cruisers Forum

In my brief association with this website I have read many interesting and informative posts. I thought I would highlight a few of the recurring themes. Please add to this list, that which I have surely missed.

1. Preparation is everything.
2. Sex at sea is always better than sex on dry land.
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.

Clearly you haven't (yet) read the anchoring and mulihull threads

Re: Things I've learned on Cruisers Forum

I was wondering what you were using to measure the betterness of sex. Or is that strictly subjective and therefore shouldn't even be mentioned as it will only cause some to go into fits of apoplexy? As seen in climate threads...

Re: Things I've learned on Cruisers Forum

Or this theme:
Hi, I have never sailed before, I have no money, but I want to circumnavigate the globe via the Northwest Passage. Could I have your advice please. But don't say anything negative, I only want comments that reinforce my dream...not naysayers who always discourage dreams...
(if you have a free boat, I would sail it far and wide so you gain the satisfaction of knowing its being loved and used...)

Keep yer shirt on, just poking a little fun at some of the starry eyed dreamers. (;-)

All this in three days of research?

I notice how 1 and 9 refer to the same subject. Strangely the others refer to it also. Its just that I am not going to post the jokes. Others can read between the lines!

And it will be their very first post and they will never be heard of again.

I have not read the sex/climate threads so can not comment on said apoplexy. In terms of the general betterness of sex at sea, my comment merely reflects what seems to be the consensus of past threads written by, presumably, authoritative practitioners. Regrettably I have not amassed enough empirical data to establish a base line for betterness.

In fairness to the OP (Rascal); I would assert that this aspect is self evident and does not require any substantive argument unlike say anchors or crimpers or ...
