I recall a joke re Brits and Scots during their many wars.

The armies are drawn up on the sides of a valley full of mist waiting for it to clear so they can have at it.

A voice comes out of the mist "One Scotsman can whip two Brits", two Brits dash into the mist, much clashing and clanging.

The voice comes again "One Scotsman can whip four Brits", four dash down, same result.

The voice comes again "One Scotsman can whip eight Brits". Same again but this time a bloodied Brit crawls out of the mist and with his dying breath says "Don't go, there's two of the bastards".
Scotsmen are Brits. Replace Brit with English the next time you tell that one.

Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

This thread is almost 400 posts long. Most single guys have picked up by now. Thus they can't be vilified.

Ahhh the sanctity of a loving relationship. Oooops! Still looking so I must still be a ratbag..

What's wrong with you?

I was single far too long as a landlubber even though I had some very flash cars and a very good income. Left my job, sold my cars, sold my apartment and within 4 months of being a liveaboard I'm in, as you call it, "sanctity of a loving relationship".

The down side, have not seen the boat in 4 months and there is snow outside the window

Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

I grew up fishing in Bristol Bay and then later learned a bit of sailing. So for now traveling the world, but am one of those 1% of women who love the Ocean and diving and adventure but would like to have someone to share the adventures with. Am currently in landlocked Austria. ha ha, But lovely to see there are men out there and as I continue my trip, may end up meeting someone ridiculously a match for me. and them. : )

Reminds me of a joke my father told occasionally when I was a kid...
Two Pathan tribesmen are sitting atop a rocky eyrie near the Khyber Pass keeping lookout when they spot a dust cloud in the distance..
The younger man turns to his elder and asks if he should run back and spread the alarm.. " Calm yourself Sikunder.. let us wait till they are closer and we can identify them..!!'
Hours pass and as the cloud draws closer Akbar peers through his telescope at the advance.. "What do you see Akbar..!!" cries Sikunder.
"I'm not sure.." replys Akbar.. "Your eyes are younger than mine Sikunder.. you take a look and tell me what you see.. they look like they are wearing dresses.."
"Bismillah.. they are sending women to fight us.. the Barbarians.."
said Sikunder as he peers through the telescope and excitedly screams.. "Your right.. You Right.. they wear dresses... but wait.. what is this.. they seem to have beards and their hair is piled high on top of their heads.. what strange creatures are they sending to do battle...??
"Ahah..!! replied Akbar.. " This must be that famous Middlesex Regiment we have heard so much about.."

It was a 50's joke

Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

I was just wondering what those kids were doing with Sir Peter Blake's name in the background. Must have been an unusual event.

Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

You read as too insecure to be trying to project yourself as confident (what turns females on) to be such a beefcake buddy...those women you're flirting with online are like you, bored, lonely and unable/not wanting to commit..

That's the problem with online dating, it's such an endless fountain of prospects you feel like you're settling if you commit as it's too easy to find better if/when/as you keep looking...much like used boat shopping, hard to commit cuz the market is so saturated there must be a better deal...

Since he is not really sure how to go about fixing it he is looking for cheap laborers to do it for him. Like minions I guess? Meanwhile, as his minions are hard at work he intends to get a box truck?! Lol lol. He said box truck right? No doubt to collect all of the women he intends to take out to the middle of the ocean. Not just any women , but young nubiles.... He said he was divorced right? One can only wonder why? Lol
There's a married version of this guy (OP) at city marina mooring field marathon florida LOL.

They have what looks like a Cross 50something, mast down with a huge white tarp over the top (I guess the topside leaks?) has any and everything on the deck...including a oversized grill you pull behind a truck, not load into a truck box. Busted up patio furniture etc..

Their dink is 14ft Livingston setup for bully netting lobster (has a tall console on the very front you stand up to operate) but it has a Bimini over the working area which would blocks you from bully netting???

They even have a 14foot van cab box truck spray painted sad sea foam green. I think they're concession sellers doing the swap meets?

Total hoarders...makes Fred Sanford look like mr clean...

Marina people, best people watching ever...

Ahahahahahaaaaa.. actually old chap we did not.. Europe did.. we'd held our own for 3yrs before you guys came along.. and if you had not.. well.. Hitler would have been beaten anyway.
As for Japan.. they'd been stopped at India.
After the Sikh regiments switched to the Japanese side which led to the fall off Singapore.. and how they were treated afterwards.. and Japanese treatment of their Burmese Communist Party allies.. their star had reached its peak.. the Indians realised their best hope was with the Brits.
The Chindit Expeditions proved the Japanese Myth of Invincibility to be false.
And.. seeing as your so tough and all powerful.. how is it your only 'Victorious War' since 1948 was Grenada when 10,000 armed marines landed to take on 28 unarmed police men..
GWB on an aircraft carrier is not acceptable as proof...

Safer to say America is in the war business. And business is good.

You're funny...

Keep making me laugh please..the movie heartbreak ridge isn't a legit depiction of operation urgent fury but something tells me I'm trying to be reasonable and rational with the unreasonable and irrational...

you seem to forget how Ronnie ended the Cold War without shooting a bullet

Since you have issues with POTUS using deadly force to defend/rescue American citizens I suppose you're sad about operation just cause when GHWB authorized the takedown and capture of Manuel Noriega? Again like urgent fury, wasn't marines but Army soldiers Airborne Rangers...paratroopers from 82 Airborne and us Lightfighters from planet Ord. Too funny him seeking refuge in a church and the Catholics telling him to surrender to the Americans.

And in the news tomorrow you'll be reminded how 25 years ago fighting ended of stormin Norman's leading the others and me in the worlds last big tank battle that lasted 3 days (operation desert storm ended Feb 28 1991) when the worlds 4th largest army got skunked by a US lead coalition...such sore losers were Saddam he torched the Kuwaiti oil fields in spite...this was when & where I started calling Limeys "Limeys" to their faces...

Keep up the memory issues & wordsmith act though, it's very entertaining...
