just filling in the dots to keep the thread rolling
That was an interesting link sir! Real mudslinging. I would have missed it entirely due to the title. Property on land is way down my list. Right behind a helopad on the afterdeck, which itself is immediately behind build an afterdeck.

And I'm reminded of a poster who was responding to a particularly incendiary post by another. He didn't get in the bad guy's virtual face at all but simply responded to the effect, "I seriously doubt you would say that to my face." My maturity gene is missing but I admire it in others.

There's not a lot better example than regular seaman Boatman61 himself, who I think is more like 66. Boozing and carousing apparently are the keys to a long active life. I'm counting on it meself.

Re: Atlantic Delivery

Okay that was a walk in the twilight zone. My property is for sale, don't ask where it is, I won't tell you. I'll bet price negotiations will be a nightmare. Not to mention the title search.

Re: Atlantic Delivery

Wow that thread about the property sure took a nosedive. I stayed out of it due to the lack of info being a clue. No point in following.

Why Vic, "tv" is internet shorthand for "transvestite", and I don't know if you need one or not!

Cheers,

ROFL... I suppose it all comes under the heading of 'entertainment' then. To quote one of Sandy's pet sayings, "Never confess"!

GO GO BOATY
Wow, that's pretty good on #6. Based on the Sunday position, he is about 1588nm from FLL which averages out to about 144nm per day.

2313nm left to get to abeam GIB, if going non-stop, is another 16 days or so if the daily average holds.

Can this thread hold together for that long? . . .
