Do I hear a second?
oh good Lord…what is this monster I have created?
NO! I am not an admiral. Those pompous fucking fools are in the Navee and at Kings Point! I am just a working stiff with a smart mouth and a wise ass!
Please, if nominated to be Admiral I will not run and if elected, I will not serve.
Hey I know, let’s get Paul Watson to be P.Admiral!
you know that the last person to try this was Crawdaddy! I wonder where that bugger is at? Last we heard, he was on the mighty C-CAPTAIN for Chouest.
How amazing is that?
Your love for Watson is even greater than mine. That picture is just fucking awesome.
Awww, Future C.Admiral, just think, you could get a call at 0300 something about Zena Scaling the Derrick. Or Walbridge asking if he should cast off into a hurricane. Maybe Shitto wondering where the hell that Ballerina, oops, i mean rock was. Maybe Alviq looking for some injector tips, or fuel filters. All we need is a Measly 11 Mil and YOU… You could skipper the entire US fleet, in your slippers In front Of the fireplace sipping on, uh, coffee… In the words of John…
"Give me $1 million and I could build a system in less than a year… one that reduces the number of near port incidents. Not a bad pricetag and it’s an amount I ‘could’ find investors for. The problem is, after it’s built, I’d need at least an additional $10 million to lobby the IMO, USCG and port states to mandate the new system.
As I said, the technology already exists to do some amazing things… it’s getting the technology approved, purchased and installed that is difficult.[/QUOTE]"
Edison the third
Belay that thought. Admiral is a title of disrespect.I worked with an Admiral once that idiot used to brag on how everyone called him the admiral, CLUELESS. I’m in awe of the pointy stick and the sarcastic remarks. But shouldn’t the title be bestowed on someone deserving , say TMAcadet1,estar or that yacht commodore who thought a pilot was someone flew airplanes.
Yeah, you’ve got a point (y stick)… Admiral Estar kind of has a ring to it…
No, I think its Capt Kangaroo’s time for a promotion
Clasic. The hilarity that spills over from cruiser forums is astounding. I sometimes wonder if its not just one of us trolling this form when I see stupid crud like that.
The only admiral that I really know is my wife … Oh Boy !!!
So I think that c.captain really deserves a better title …

I forgot all about that incident! That was some good reading. What thread was that anyway? Does anyone have a link to that?
I once worked with a guy we called “The Chairman” at US Lines. He was an electrician who looked like The Riddler (Frank Gorshin) on the original batman show. We called him the “Chairman” because if all the assholes in the world got together they would elect him “Chairman of the Board”.

I would rather promote c.captain to the Honorable Rank of Archbastard of the International Order of Old Bastards …
… Don’t Let The Bastards Grind You Down !
I accept this honor with all due humility and self effacing shoe scraping…
this will go next to my most treasured piece of paper with is myInternational Society of Curmudgeons Master’s Certificate.
That should also take care of any doubters of whether I am a qualified master or not!
… Don’t Let The Bastards Grind You Down !
as the saying goes, if you can’t beat em… drink heavily!
Anyone have that “Certificate of Upgrade to Complete Asshole” that went around in the early 90’s? It was pretty funny It said"You are no longer half assed. Your ability to alienate and piss people off knows no bounds. You are a legend in your own mind. Don’t act any different, just be yourself.
