Now here’s a guy who knows how to enter a party gracefully…<br><br>Nice poster. I love a yachtee who can’t figure out how to shake out the reef, balance his rig, (jib, what jib?) and sail without the engine running.<br><br>Its? Proper grammar looks so much better on a poster. And, as
you’ll find around here, we pride ourselves on our flawless syntax,
spelling, and grammar.<br><br>Its a pleasure to know your on board, cap.<br><br>Welcome to the fray, yacht dude.

“Its a pleasure to know your on board, cap.”

Maybe I missed something…

[B]It’s[/B] a pleasure to know [B]you’re[/B] [B]onboard[/B], cap.

(on board seems lubberly to me, onboard seems saltier. Both are in my dictionary)

Yeah, what you missed was his post. It seems to have disappeared. You’d understand mine better if it hadn’t.

Click on the original post, over on the right where it says “Sailboat and Sinking Ship”. That’ll help somewhat.

Believe me, we would never deprive you of a good laugh. Yachtcap must have deleted it, I’m not sure if I can get it back.

I thought the pic looked familar…This OP was from almost a year ago…

Is he trying to be funny or start something? Either way he fails at both.

I spent over 10 years in private yachting,working with captains who did not have the skill or experience to be in charge. I have seen more damage done to yachts that never had to happen.

there are many captain in private yachting who are VERY skilled, but more often than not they do not have the experience that the commercial captains have.

Most private yacht sit at the dock, the boat may move 20 time a year,

so yes I was just trying to be funny and start something at the same time,
:p:p

Greetings All,
Ahhh, the New Flame and a sailboat. I spent over 70 days aboard a tug with a red stack circling the former New Flame. While I’m sure our billable role was assisting the salvage operations, we spent most of our time acting as a mobile hazard buoy. Seems those folks couldn’t get a close enough look - especially at night! Cardinal buoys, a HUGE barge with two equally huge Liebher cranes, all very well lit, seemed to draw the white hulls like, well, a moth to a flame.
For what it’s worth, the engineer aboard that tug (C. Henson from Alabama) briefly told me about the repeated attempts to hold the Federa off Europa Point. Between the barge Big Foot loosing anchors, the 408 barge breaking loose in the harbor and the repeated attempts to hold the Federa off the rocks, they earned their keep.
Best to all,
MTSKIER
