I'm Losing My Desire for Boating....

Ladies & gentlemen:

I apologize to no one for the state of the refrigerator at the time of Flywright's visit. Keep in mind what the subject of this thread is.

Below, is an example of previous visits to SeaHorse when my enthusiasm was at its peak. The boat always took care of her crew & passengers and never gave us a moment of concern. She is as undecided as to what's to become of her as am I.

(1) At sea spread

(2) Return from a short cruise

(3) Coronado Cays, CA

Ya know Walt I was kind of taken aback at the mention of the Refrigerator.

As for me I would not even show up without a bottle of something for a cruise on a friends boat.

Wasn't it enough just for the opportunity to be aboard such a fine vessel with a capt'n well seasoned.

Oh well as the the*song*says if *you can't please everyone you got to please yourself. Wasn't this about getting the o'l mojo back.

It would be nice if a keg were installed. That way you could fill the refer with other things for a spread at sea.

* * * * The decision to take the boat out was made about 3:45PM. It gets dark at 5:00PM. Neither Al nor I had time to even think about what might be in the refer.

As far as the captain being well seasoned, I don't know about that. What I do know is that every time I take the boat out I learn something new. And I mean every time!

Walt:

Great to see that you are getting your mojo back. If you lose it again, please come back to this thread and consider the proposals expressed here.

If I make it down to San Diego, I will look you up.

******** Any time. I've met some really neat people from this forum and like Eric Henning said about a year ago...he considers TF to be his yacht club. I'm just now beginning to understand what he meant.

I hate my wife. She just made me buy a trawler. I'm cheap and wish I knew you were giving one away.
I could beat that boat of yours for 10 years before having to put any money in it.
I could always sell mine?

From the looks of David's (dwhatty) avatar, retiement life is taking its toll on the boy. *Hanging around the yacht clubs and drinking beer all day can do this.* *Alas, It is sad, but I have seen it before. *Few recover.

And to think I used to be a fairly normal old dog, even if I did have a few minor chemically induced problems back then.

RE: I'm Losing My Desire for Boating....

Walt,
Given the state of your refrigerator, it is readily apparent why you had lost your joy in boating! As disturbing as that refrigerator picture is, I find it equally disturbing that Al came to visit without his own personal emergency rations. Sure, he assumed things had not progressed to such a terrible state aboard Seahorse in the way of emergency libations, but still, I am suspect that he let himself depart so readily from standard operating procedures as they relate to personal emergency rations!*


Looks like you all had a great time. Note that, per the forum rules, any vessel contemplated herein to be a designated trawler forum yacht, must be personally inspected and sea trialed by a qualified TF Moderator. I can PM you my mailing address to which the plane tickets can be sent. I know you would not want to bypass this important inspection procedure so as to assure that Seahorse can be properly designated a TF Yacht.

* * * * I find it quite confusing to see my beloved SeaHorse being considered as a "Forum boat."* Isn't that the very thing I've been trying to avoid? Geez, I feel like the Federal Government is declaring my boat to be Eminent Domain. (Not really guys...I'm sure your all kidding. right?) :boo:
