That is fine, you are welcome to come along for a day sail. I also have water, diet soda, some real food, Other alcohols, wine, beer, etc, so those who chose can have something they like, or close to it.

You keep 18 year old glen livet for friends? Can I ask if your genetically, societally, and environmentally conditioned to make friends with strangers on obscure Internet forums?

Remember to always wear clean underwear in case you get rushed to hospital.

And take a jumper, just in case.

I dont feed them live meat, they do it all on their own. I think I might need to do a head count of the local kids here as the last thing he brought in was not recognisable............

Sometimes it is as if they are human in cat form.......

My grandmother, born in the 19th century, used to say that. In all seriousness.

Next couple of times in Long Island Sound I just stayed up all night if I didn't want to take the time to go in someplace. I now know a few spots in the sound where it is pretty safe to hove-to and not worry about traffic or current and have taken a few hours here and there but I don't see how 15 minute naps can help at all.

I'd like to down to Bahamas this fall but my biggest concern is keeping watch. I had an inexperienced crew out of Bermuda once and had the opportunity to explain how quick we could get run over if on collision course with a freighter. We were on collision course and I was able to show them with math and some vectors just how quick (15 minutes) we would be dead if we kept the same course and speed. I think they got the point. It was a good lesson for me as well!
*******************
Fog? I was crew with a VERY experienced captain in the Sargasso Sea on a 50' sloop in the middle of nowhere - flat water. Early morning just before dawn and another cruiser missed us by not more than a few feet. Neither vessel was sounding fog horn! Subsequent radio contact proved both vessels fully crewed!

People screw up.
