pirate Re: Our shrinking rights and the fight in Oriental NC

Hey Julie,

Are you perhaps related to the Sage of St Pete?

I believe I have employed the term "bums". Lucky you if you haven't seen enough examples to know them when you see them. The OP seems unlikely to fit the description as it has turned out. The forum could provide you with endless examples, however.

Moreover, many posters have experienced "no room at the inn" in Oriental, including Cap Sneed, Cap Bill, myself (just an AB) and many others. This really isn't as hypothetical as you seem to think. The thing about Oriental is the repair facilities. And location. The harbor is what it is. You may prefer to pull into a marina most nights; many do. I have only done so in the past when I needed something important. I'd rather shower and eat onboard, and save the $, night after night. Plus I don't want to know everything, or anything, about neighboring boats in the next slip.

Hiya PS! ...if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, walks like a duck...it must be a turkey mimicking a duck! If you haven't noticed yet, turkeys are cheap around here! Have a blue-chip day!

which apples to apples comparison do you want to make?
If you are saying you have moved your boat to make room for another regardless of circumstance then I commend you for your exceptional graciousness.

If you're splitting hairs about short term vs long term, then I think you're missing my point.

And I you ...I think you are missing the point of the whole thread....

I doubt any cruiser wants anchoring limits...I just see it and feel it that many cruisers here want others to limit themselves for the good of all...not just a few...and I don't think I'm the first to post that sentiment....

Re: Our shrinking rights and the fight in Oriental NC

+1 psneed I am finding it hard to believe this thread has gone on as long as it has. It is kind of like watching a car wreck, I want to turn away, but then when it comes up in the new posts section, I have to see what else has been brought to the party.

Re: Our shrinking rights and the fight in Oriental NC

Just wondering...do the boats anchored in Taylor Creek have this kind of controversy? Have they been "harrassed" by the locals? Or is there plenty of room there?

Plenty of sunken mooring to bend your prop shaft on for sure...

What it boils down to is if you don't apply common sense and courtesy......along will come laws to force it on you!

Re: Our shrinking rights and the fight in Oriental NC

i cannot imagine how it must feel to stay in a place where you are not welcome - me, that feeling would last about an hour - i really am beginning to feel sorry for them. the worst of feelings !

Good call. I probably need to annoy others on other threads. I've really become quite monolithic on this board. Call it virgin's na´vetÚ.

Will you still stalk me there? We've got quite a thing going now.

On a serious note, Oriental is your best spot for sailing. The Ocracoke run is challenging and fun, for all I know about sailing...

So. Psneed says I identified him as a local, eh. Both of you need to get your facts right. It was you, not I who identified Psneed as a local, eh? Be so kind if you can, to set him straight on this 'salient' fact.

Truth is the points you say I've made were mainly in the form of questions. And still, none of you antagonists have answered even one of the questions.

You appear to believe declaring me wrong is good enough. Hardly. How about some answers? And if you, Psneed and BlueCrab can't remember what they are or didn't read them, they're still there.
