Wait a second! You positioned those so if a sea Ray wakes your marina your boat will rock therefore the shoes will fall off the rail and float away. Then you can blame your innocent Nordy friend. You're horrible.

Btw, he has the same home port as us!

I think the world is too sensitive, If the normal sounds/ smells of boating, camping, bowling, rock climbing, surfing, star gazing.... bother you then go away and don't do it.

Amen and please pass the hand grenades.

You think you a Nordy owner will steal your crappy old boat shoes??

Don't you know that all wear fir lined elk hide slippers when aboard??

A word of caution though.. the cute girl that waxes his hull every month might take them home to her surfer boyfriend

The Nordy owner probably thinks somebody aboard your boat's feet stink so bad even they cannot stand to keep their shoes inside!

hmason,
I'm more into boats than shoes. These shoes are a very expensive brand that starts w "A"? And you think your slipmate will steal them?

Why on earth would a person that is affluent enough to afford a Nordhavn be interested in old shoes left out on a rail? ..... that belong to someone else? If he notices the shoes he may form some opinions about your housekeeping as I see his boat is very neat and tidy.

Other than just the question of honesty, many other reasons I would never be a suspect in a shoe heist. First and foremost is I would not want to wear anyone else's shoes not knowing where their feet have been or what conditions such as athlete's foot they might have. So all can consider their shoes definitely safe from me.

My wife says we're lacking in entertainment.

Had to show her the posts about the shoes.

I'm still thinking I must have missed something.

It's a running joke from when Howard's shoes got stolen from the boat show. Another TFer there at the show was Oliver, N4712, so he got blamed. Jokingly, that has cast all N47 owners into the sphere of suspicion for hmason. His hunt for the perpetrator continues.

I thought hmason's post was hysterical. It's been a very funny thread woven through many conversations here on TF. You never know where it might pop up next.

Just remember what a very wise man (Steven Wright) said, "Before you criticize someone, you should first walk a mile in their shoes. Then, when you DO criticize them, you'll be a mile away - and you'll have their shoes!"

LOL! I expect a similar call but my response will be, "No that's just my Volvos."

Steven Wright also said that his home was burglarized and everything he owned was taken and replaced with exact replicas. Wish good ole Ollie had provided me with the same courtesy.
