2017 Trawlerforum Gathering

Well the get together is history. What an excellent time! And to prove this isn't just a "guys" thing see the attached photo of the lovely ladies in attendance.

That divided gender grouping reminds me of the new members orientation at the Texas Mariners Cruising Association about 25 years ago. The new members were divided by gender. We males discussed crossing the ship channel spoil area, good places to cruise, etc.

The females talked about how to cruise safely. About halfway through, one of the female new members asked the speaker: "Are the men getting the same lecture? My husband will never believe me otherwise. He won't listen to me."

I trust this didn't happen to y'all. We all listen to our wives, right?

Irvs "Gotcha" is the first Grand Banks I have ever seen with a stripper pole! I'm not saying it got used last night, (or saying it didn't) but mums the word. If you didn't attend, you don't get to know.

Can anyone match the faces with TF manners? Would be interesting to put a name with the faces.

Steve. Watfa says her pole is made for her and no photos are allowed, she's been known to hang upside down sans clothes and hands! LMAO

The dude pic left to right:
Irv(Bigfish)
Me
Dave(David Rive)
Larry(LarryM)
Ted(OC Diver)
Scott(PSNeeld)
Steve(Sailor of Fortune)
Allan(LaBomba)...I think...
Ahmed(Capt.Mcgee)....new here but one of Irv's crew...

I would party with any one of those MFers!!!...oh I mean TFers!!!! What a great time. And I promise I will bring rum next year. We were (fish out of water" flying in and unfamiliar...although I think I could have probably found some rum if a little effort was put into it. I think Wendy and I put a pretty big dent in the rum supply of two different boats. Thanks again fellas!!!

You probably greater all the guys Shen they first joined up so I would suggest you just place a Ms in front of those names. Simple, done.

Baker - pretty big dent? I've never seen anyone drink 8 ounces of rum in a tumbler numerous times.. LMAO. That what it was for, my friend gave it to us to sample the world and since you fly the world I assume it is the same thing. ��

RT. Sorry, still on the boat getting ready to anchor.

I meant to say you greated all the members with their first post, that being the case and since you could name the guys by their behavior perhaps just placing a Ms in front would work.

Don if the Captain doesn't show up with his own PBR does he deserve the title of captain or perhaps, never mind he's a big dude best not to mess with him.

You really did a great job on this years gathering and I know you said it was like herding cats but I think it was harder like herding ants. Thanks!
