School holiday. This is how school children entertain themselves until homework is once again assigned.

Re: Help with Advise!

How old in people years is a twelve-year-old troll?

I don't know whether that can be translated into an equivalent sailor age, since sailors aren't so big on growing up.

Re: Help with Advise!

You'll need anchors, lot's of anchors, preferably chinese made rocnas that bend.

And guns, don't forget the guns.

Re: Help with Advise!

Get a hunter, chinese rocnas and fill the boat with guns.

Damn, you'll be able to converse on almost every thread in here.

Ten buy a sextant and ask if anyone can give you a short 1 page course on how to use.

Examples:-
Mailing address --- Fred Blogs c/o BOAT "Audacious"
Mayday----------- Mayday mayday mayday, this is BOAT "Audacious"
Sailing club afternoon race invite-------- 2pm BOAT race.......
Advise please?

Re: Help with Advise!

Lassie,

Hell no! Maybe ace should buy the rowboat and row over. Maybe he should swim across.

Short course on using sextant. Point at sun. Look through. Glance at your chartplotter. Mark position on paper chart.

Or stay at home, buy sailing video and watch that

I personally think sailboats are what you put in the bath tub LOL, but I wouldn't ever want to tread on any sensitive toes here .

(I hope Aussie humour is appreciated, or else I am in BIG trouble )
