HappyMdR, I like the way you think.

I had a feeling I'd like the company here.
Glad it feels like home... With rare exceptions, we're all cut from the same canvas... er... dacron..mylar.... You get the point...

We help, console, share, and brag....

Most of us have stalled out right after the denial stage too... We like the water and boats... And we have no desire to reform...

Re: Aloha, Y'all

To be sure, I am wholly unrepentant, old boat, lost cause, tilting at windmills passing. If you need help with distribution let me know, I have a big fish hold.

Re: Aloha, Y'all

I remember a friend of mine quoting a line from some author about the size of boats. Someone asks how many people it sleeps and he says it sleeps 6 but drinks 12. He was the same fellow that you could hear say, "Work is the curse of the drinking man."

Me personally, I don't drink much but do enjoy a "wee bit" occasionally.

I can see why HappyMdRSailor is happy but I think he needs a larger icebox.

John,

A bigger box would then mean modifications for a larger cooling system, house bank, and ballast adjustment...

But then again... It would me we have room to put food in there too....

Something very much like that.

Very sorry to have disappeared unannounced, gentlemen. I'll try to do better.

I am trying to finish some of the lingering inland projects, so I can spend a few weeks doing fix-up stuff on the boat. Just got my new hailing port stickers yesterday.

Would a quart of apple pie be enough to get someone to shimmy up the mast and mount a new radar dome for me?

Capt.58, Homer is a long way from the Old North State. Perhaps we can meet in Panama?

Re: Aloha, Y'all

Just checking to see how you're doing. Sounds like you're doing just fine and I'll bet you'll get a taker on that offer. I can tell that Md is seriously thinking about it.

I'm a bit too far away and wearing an inflatable boot on a broken foot so won't be there for awhile.

kind regards,

Well I "might" be passing by thataway sometime in the not too distant future.... And... It's not like you can just pick up a home brew anywhere...

Besides... My stock is dwindling cause I need to send a bottle of my regular stuff to SkipJ now...

Sorry to hear that, Skipr. Hope you get well, and soon. Perhaps it'll have to be 2qt if HappyMdR is promising you one.
