If you think it’s hard to decipher Fred here, you should read his old posts on the T&T unformatted plain text mailing list.

Even if you disagree with Freds’ advice, as I often do, I believe his heart is in the right place,

He really does want to help fellow boaters. And often he is right.

Also remember this - as Tom Wolfe says in the book “The Right Stuff” he has faced that “cold gray slab of steel that all naval aviators face.” I could never have done that.

I realize this thread is in fun, and that no harm is meant. Just sayin’.

Communicating is a skill. If people can't understand what you are trying to say, there's little point in saying it.
