Heh. Bewitched, bothered and bewildered, am I...

You have to be as old as I am to recognize the song. The extra H was a fat-fingered, hurried attempt to get off line quickly to conserve our dwindling megabytes in our current subscription (second one since cruising, mostly to help a buddy boater).

A play on a song...

didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail
away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore.
Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

C'mon Fishwife...dont sugar coat it! Tell us how you REALLY feel!

Skip, I just wanted to tell you that I find your posts a little wordy too, but not the slightest bit Ego-centric. You have posted your successes as well as your failures, and there is a lot to be learned in your logs. What type of moron would continue opening posts from a poster he KNOWS he doesnt want to read...I cant tell you...but it sure is easy for me to avoid threads I'm not interested in. What with unsubscribe and the ability to block forum members, there is no reason anyone should ever complain about a members postings. Well, I'm off now to post my question about which anchor is best suited to hide the guns in each hull of my catamaran...

"And then again, when you sit at the helm of your little ship on a clear night, and gaze at the countless stars overhead, and realize that you are quite alone on a wide, wide sea, it is apt to occur to you that in the general scheme of things you are merely an insignificant speck on the surface of the ocean; and are not nearly so important or as self-sufficient as you thought you were. Which is an exceedingly wholesome thought, and one that may effect a permanent change in your deportment that will be greatly appreciated by your friends."- James S. Pitkin

For those with limited internet bandwidth, it might be help to add (long) to the title so they know you are posting a large posting, which I gather most your's are.

And for those that reply, it would be helpful not to quote the entire f#@$#@
post.
