Just GO!!!!!!!!!!!

The other Day it dawned on me that you all are Captains of various size vessels, we find our selves being in charge of boats.That being the case we all have a tremendous responsibility, our burden is not to be taken lightly.


Our knowledge of the sea is extensive.


There are those who may *be new to boating *and face an enormouse learning curve.


The Trawlerform we subscribe to is a great class room supported by great teachers ready and waiting *to offer advice an consultation on thousands of marine topics .


I am honored *to be included in the Fraternity


May i dedicate this poem to*Captain Marin C. Faure for his contribution to the Trawlerforum.




When we build, Let us think that we build for ever.
Let it not be for present delight nor present use alone .
Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for ;
and let us think, as we lay stone on stone, that a time is to come when
those stones will be held sacred
because our hands have touched
them, and men will say as they look upon the labor and
wrought substance of them
"See this our Father did for us ."

Here are the lyrics to a song a buddy of mine wrote.* I have known him since first grade of school.* Our first on stage performance was in third grade with another buddy who has passed on.* Three ukuleles.* We had a band in high school.

Fantasy by Ron Hall


COME SHARE WITH ME , A SWEET FANTASY
LETS TAKE A TRIP, JUST YOU & ME.
OH WE COULD PACK UP BABY & GO
WHERE WARM WINDS ALWAYS BLOW
WELL SING & DANCE & LOVE THE NIGHT AWAY.

WALK WITH ME BY A MOON-LIT SEA
A REGGAE BAND PLAYS MERRILY,
OH, LETS JUST PACK UP BABY & GO
WARM WINDS ALWAYS BLOW
WELL SING & DANCE & LOVE THE NIGHT AWAY

SHARE WITH ME A SOFT SUMMER BREEZE,
THE PALM TREES DANCE FOR YOU AND ME

OH JUST AN ISLAND IN THE SUN, AND LONG WARM DAYS OF FUN
SHARE MY FANTASY.



Of course we have written together such other classics as "Cap'n Ron is Losing His Ass" and that romantic favorite "I Need You Tonight".* One of Ron's other great ones is "Tulips Growing Under My Nose".

You are 58 ,and pray tell why are you waiting till 60?

What if we all waited till 60 !

DREAM BIG.


I have been screwing around in boats since i was *8 * when i built a floating box which was 4 ft long, H.M.S . Sheffield which i would kneel in and paddle with my hands.


By the way i painted the Sheffield*Battleship Grey. it had 9 x 6" guns and two torpedo tubes.


My brother sank me with his 5 ft paddle boat, H.M.S. Birmingham, he had 8" guns and a paddle.

I am curious as to what folks on TF consider to be their own "edge of the world".* How far from your home port do you dare to venture?** KJ
