I'm bored...

Recently had a ventral hernia repaired. No sailboat riding for another 4 weeks. No active sailboat sailing for another 5 months.

Anybody heard any good jokes lately?

Re: I'm bored...

Sorry about your hernia but glad for it is now repaired. Recovery will go quicker than you think. Too bad you can't do boat projects for a while. But hang in there, the sanding and varnishing will still be there when you are ready.

Re: I'm bored...

I feel for you. In 2009 I broke my leg skiing and 6 months later the damn plate they put in broke! I was away a whole year! Be thankful for small things.

I spent a LOT of time figuring out how I was going to get on my boat when I was hobbling around with crutches. It did pass the time.

I also spent a lot of time on boating forums. Find others and read away.

Good luck.

Re: I'm bored...

I can empathize. I ruptured the quad tendon in my right leg during a squash game. The surgeon says I will be good to do my Maui Vancouver delivery August 1.

Last summer I had an inguinal hernia repaired. My doctor was concerned that it might strangulate offshore. That went really well. Did a South Atlantic crossing in September / October.

Been there, done that. Follow your Dr's orders, faithfully!

In the mean time, download the latest Notices to Mariners and spend some time Up-dating your charts. You might be surprised by what you learn studying and up-dating paper charts and they'll be ready when you are.

FWIW...

Keep in touch and best to you!

Re: I'm bored...

Well, Old Frog,

I see I didn't tell you about my hernias. Had a strangulated femoral hernia that required emergency evacuation. Had a 6 week time for not pulling on lines, cranking winches. Obeyed.

Thought about the situation, as sometimes Jim and I are far from medical care. Voluntarily set up for a repair to the one that didn't let go. By the time I was due for the second operation, it turned out that the original repair had failed, so I had a bilateral job done. This doc was a yachtie, and he fixed me up with kevlar patches that were screwed in over the openings, and then skin grows through them. That was about 10 yrs. ago, and all of that has been fine.

Therefore, expect complete recovery.

Ann

Thanks for asking. It's been 6 weeks since the operation and I feel fine. Doctor gave me permission to "ride only; no work" on a sailboat but is sticking to his original Rx of no "active/working" sailing for 6 months (late November).

I went out for a ride last week and learned two things:

1. Sailing without working is boring as hell
2. Since I can't work, if riding on a racing boat I am relegated to staying out of everybody's way in the cockpit and if I can't get on and off the rail then I'm worse than useless.

Looks like no sailing, no racing, no teaching, at least for the rest of the summer.

Re: I'm bored...

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day.
Teach him how to fish and he will sit in a boat & drink beer all day.

Re: I'm bored...

Do fish get cramps after eating?

Q: How much does it cost for a pirate to pierce his ears? A: A Buccaneer! (a buck an ear, boom boom..)

“I finally snapped,” the man said. “Last night while I was going over the bills, I discovered how much money my wife squanders and I hit the roof.” “What did you do?” asked his friend. “I stormed into the bedroom and gave her a lecture on economy and thrift.” “Did it help?” “I’ll say. Tomorrow we’re selling my boat and sailing equipment.”

Q: How many boaters does it take to change a lightbulb? A: None, because the right size bulb isn’t on board, the local marine-supply store doesn’t carry that brand, and the mail-order house has them on back-order.

Q: What’s the difference between a lawyer and a dock line? A: One should be whipped at both ends: the other keeps your boat tied to the dock.
