Re: Defintion of a crusier

i'd like to suggest another factor to input into the equation

this is the question of a land-home ie some cruisers have a base on land to which they return more or less frequently. some even have cars and jobs

others have no attachment to anywhere apart from their boat

then there is a range inbetween

this could be termed the LARF (land attachment residual factor)

cheers,

Huh. Something about the way you phrased that makes me think you're having a LARF at my expense. This thread is for serious minds only.

Re: Defintion of a crusier

The LARF will have to be a three-dimensional matrix of it's own! There's LARF(a) (admiral), LARF(c) (captain), and LARF(d) (deckhand[s]).

And then you have to generate the appropriate coefficients for weighting the various LARFs. At a guess, 1000LARF(c) = 10LARF(d) = LARF(a). From that we can see that the critical factor is LARF(a), although this can be mitigated by the cruiser's "divorce in exotic locales".

I don't know, he stopped in Iceland didn't he? Don't real crusiers do it all in one go? He does get points for not using his engine though.

Re: Defintion of a crusier

Wouldn't mind betting Julius Cruesier was the first, especially on his visits to see Ms Nosey on the far side of the Mare Nostrum (Our Sea, in Latin, the Roman language), as it was then called...

Potentially, uber-rich Romans visiting their holiday homes in Sicily and North Africa, by slave galley....

Or traders taking their families along on trading missions for a 'cruise' perhaps.

Although, if we're going back that far, I'm opting for Asterix and Obelix - or their mates, the pirates.... lol

Re: Defintion of a crusier

If a cruiser goes ashore does that make him a has been cruiser? Can he come aboard and become a Recruiser? Or will he be fore ever an excruiser?
