Who Would You Sail With?

So, given all the threads on this forum.

All the expertise, all the challenges faced, all the fire fighting accomplished...

If you were crossing the stream, going down the windward islands, slugging up the west coast, cruising the east or west coast of Mexico, doing the Inside Passage...

Based on what you read here in a guy/gal, and more importantly his or her vessel...

Who would you choose to sign on with for a challenging and yet enjoyable voyage. And why?

Since I posted it, I am excluded.

Aw, come on Menz, I wouldn’t mind a bit of a voyage on your boat! Warm weather, blue water, sandy beaches....and I would even bring the Rum, a very large barrel might be enuff, depending on how many others are along!

I like to be on my boat and in charge (OCD control freak). If I'm going to give all that up, then I want to be entertained.

Greetings
Mr. OC. " If I'm going to give all that up..." I'm afraid IF you had me as a shipmate you would give "all that up" very quickly...

The Admiral #1 of course.

After that all crew must be in agreement with onboard anchor, fly bridge, instrument array, oil and fuel filters, lack of polishing system, definition of rough water, no state registration, political views, global warming causation, Chinese built boat, active stabilizers, no dogs and no teak decks.

It would appear that the potential crew list has now become very small. Maybe best to use ambulatory and a good story teller as the guidelines.

Janice142 would be a good travel companion, because I think she would take the time to meander and experience locations fully, rather than romp from one anchorage to the next.

My wife and Richard on Dauntless ( if he would have us ) . His past experience, weather knowledge, high energy and what seems be a laid back attitude.

I guess it would just be myself alone as I doubt anyone could stand me for more than a couple of hours without jumping off. and I like it that way so don't bother supplying any sympathy.

Answering a different question and pretending they are the same. It's close enough to a Gilligan's Island thread. I'd rather be shipwrecked with Ginger.

I'd have to go with Richard on dauntless as well. He has knack for doing things many only dream of including me.

ASD and Crusty Chief and their Admirals.






When we consider friends who we want to invite we usually pick people who do not have a boat. That way an opportunity to be in the water is more special to them. That's not to say we don't invite boat owners.


Usually the determining qualities are compatibility with us.

Id cruise with Murray and his family as long as hed bring along his camera and equipment. He could teach me landscape photography and Id bore him with wildlife photography. Oh, we would have to agree to leave our politics at home!

Unfortunately I agree that traveling with someone on a boat with different political views these days can be problematic. That is too bad, because we generally never had those issues before in the U.S., in our lifetimes at least. Hopefully this will change.

Sorry, guys. I'd only do it on a cruise ship; definitely not on a small boat. Just being honest.

I would also be reluctant to do a long cruise w company. It is a good way to lose a friendship.
