Whoa! There are more people here appearing to have fun than me. And the discussion is relevant. Don't want to participate, don't.

When the thread has run it's course it will just come to an end of it's own accord.

Making personal attacks is not the way to go.

Just go away.

Re: Glass on a Sailboat

Drinking single malt out of a plastic vessel is wrong. Or wine. Or anything. Sunsets are purely aesthetic experiences, enhanced by sundowners served with a bit of Úlan.

Are we to live like savages?

I've been in knockdowns, I find restraining the battery pack trying to leave its enclosure , tended to make me ignore the glass. Am I Wrong ?

Re: Glass on a Sailboat

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned "Pitch Polling". Now, that event will definitely have things in your cabin fly off, if you can live through it!

Zeehag! Love a sense of humour. It is definitely useful when your in recovery mode after a knock down or caught in any kind of challenging situation.

You'll do well if you ever leave the dock...

Hey, you use that program sometimes that makes what you're saying indecipherable?

Very funny.



mebbe if you ever sail your desk you would know i left dock many years ago. silly boy...yes by....kicks are for trids...get with it, slow poke. oh yes--and i wasnt at a dock..

i notice you do not answer the question of where is your alleged boat that you are allegedly stuck in mexico in furycame season....lol

Re: Glass on a Sailboat

But what about the beer bottles? That's a deal breaker right there.

With beer in it? Otherwise it's just garbage. Why would you want garbage on your boat anyway?

nuthing wrong with wood!!! you get a micro zoology thing happening sure to keep your bug resistance up to date.
I sold the caravan, got the plastic glasses and melanine crockery. it cracks, stains and melts but cheap and as light as led lighting.
I used to think stoneware was great but the new stuffs fragile as. the step mother thinks porcelain gets tougher with use. I still chuckle when I remember her tapping her wares with a spoon or fork while explaining its virtues whenever she has visitors.
after reading this thread I am still as clueless as the chick with the coconut shell bra..

Re: Glass on a Sailboat

Didn't a lot of old-time pirates and other sailors have their spirits in glass bottles that were encased in wickerwork basket-like linings that provided some insulation, padding, and grip? If their rum could survive hurricanes, then that would likely be good enough for me. But maybe someone will say that Capts. Morgan, Drake, et al. didn't know how to carry their liquor.

My response made it clear that garbage doesn't make sense. So your sarcasm is redundant. If you think I should have interpreted beer bottles as beer bottles with beer inside, you're not thinking correctly, as most people would simply call that beer. To further prove my point, it's doesn't even make sense that it's a deal breaker as many aren't going to give up beer because of the glass. If you were being sarcastic in that post, it is a pointless sarcastic statement, making it hard to determine that it is actually sarcastic.
