pirate Sup?

I have no boat, next to no experience, but I really want to sail…and live aboard.

I’ll continue to lurk till I figure out what’s going on.

Thanks…

Oh yeah, My name’s Jay and my handle is a little Japanese joke of mine that got started a while back so just call me Jay.

I’ll see if I can’t put that in my sig somewhere.

Welcome.

We all have to start somewhere, but asking questions is a lot easier way to discover information than lurking.

There is no such thing as a dumb question - just a query about something you need to know, and somebody else knows the answer.

Thanks, Talbot I'll see if I can find a good question to start off with...I have so many.

Dave, don't worry man It's really a "Had to be there" joke but, it's a name I use on other forums from time to time.

Hi Jay - Welcome to CF. I lived in Japan for 6 years so I "might" get the joke. However I am a bit thick so I might not - LOL...

Cool! What part of Japan. I was in Tokyo on and of for about ten years. I lived in a place called Shinkoiwa; that's how the joke got started but, really man, it's a "had to be there joke" and you almost have to be from Tokyo to get it.

Surprising I am not familiar with Shinikoiwa but there are lot's of little communities in Tokyo for sure.

We lived in Meguro-ku, worked in Haneda, hung out in Yokohama and travelled quite a bit. Primarily to all the "usual" places. Kyoto, Hiroshima, Fuji, Hokkaido etc. etc.

We had a blast. Years ago now. 1993-1999...

Aloha Jay,
Welcome aboard! Ask any questions and make responses. First port I pulled into in the early 60s was Yokosuka.
Good to have you lurking about.
Kind regards,
JohnL

Welcome Jay or should I say hajamemasheta dozoyuroshiku (excuse my spelling). I married a woman from Isihara south of Tokyo (can't remember 360 to 1 John; that's a pretty good bang for the buck!). Welcome again Jay.

Yes Jay,

When you have a pay check of $8 every two weeks a strong dollar helps a little bit. This was very early in my Navy career.

Unbelievable I ever had any money to spend on the beach.
