10000 presentations to us over 6 years shows a great deal of respect but saying it was a waste of time is obviously incorrect. His bad.
I agree Eric. If I thought he really meant that, I would be a bit insulted.
Anyway Marin, if you weren't posting during those airport waits, other down times, etc, just what the heck else would you have been wasting your time doing...? Methinks thou dost protest too much, so just suck it up, get over it, and stay tuned and ready. I feel another anchor stousch coming on...

SD; It's great to hear from you again! I'll be in SE Alaska on the 20th of July but probably no where near your cabin. (Angoon?)

How's the boat running and that 3208 overhaul that we all lived through?
Miss your adventures and the cookies you sent me from the bakery,()

Seriously, Great to hear from you again.

Seahorse - Is the boat in the avatar the boat you will be bringing to SE AK?
If so, I will keep an eye open. At that time of the year, we could be in our home port of Ketchikan, gunkholing, or heading or returning or in Wrangell for golf. Something to lookout for.
Regards,

Super great!

Also great to hear from you Skipperdude. You've been absent, but you're back in time to catch this photo shot of the rare GB 36 wannabe Sport-Fisher. Windshield, windows, fly-bridge, canvas enclosure, hause pipes, and even the shanks of the capable twin Bruce anchors are raked forward for greater ground-holding and pulpit appeal. The tuna tower adds a practical counterbalance of the extra weight, and really gets the girls.

Healhustler, I am laughing so hard I am crying!!! That is absolutely fantastic!!!! Thanks for your hard work!!!!

Marin, I have something that will scare you back to TF. That 830 hours you spent on here. Guess what? Instead of spending that time on a forum....you might have to spend more time with ACTUAL PEOPLE!!!!!! PEOPLE THAT WANT TO HANG OUT AND TALK BOATS WITH YOU!!!!!! The horror!!!!

It's your choice amigo!!!!

Larry,
You are a scholar and a gentleman. I believe this may be the greatest gift TF has given to Marin and while he may be on radio silence, I know he is reading this and most likely his printer is busy printing away as his wife is running to the store to get a suitable picture frame. I say Bravo!

P.S. I am tempted to snag this photo and create an ad on yachtworld for her with a list price of $229,900 with a hint of extensive owner improvements and upgrades just to see what kind of person calls on the ad. If only I had Marin's phone # I could even place his # as the contact number so he could talk boating with them.

Tony....I suspect that by temporarily making the photo your Avatar, your real motivation may be to steal the greatly anticipated, prestigious Woodsong Memorial Avitar Trophy for 2013. Fowl!

Knowing this I am hoping it will motivate me not to return and waste any more.

The only thing I might do is start an account under a different heading so if I get any cool photos on our fishing trips and cruises I can post them on West Coast Cruising. We all like to look at pictures.

But that might lead me back into active participation in the forum so I'll have think that one through very carefully.

But 833 hours totally wasted that I'll never get back. That's bloody insane.
I would tend to disagree! It is not wasted time as you have helped countless folks here. You do have an impact and are respected by many...

hustler I'm w you but the only mod I like on your Marin avatar is the Bruce anchor. I'm going to start a new thread on the Bruce/Claws but I'll wait till Marin fades into the woods to start.

There's very few anchors (if any) that compare w the B/C as a piece of sculpture.

But I'm with Marin on the slant stuff.

Marin,

If it is something you enjoy doing, who cares if it is "productive". All work and no play makes Marin a dull boy. Lord knows, if I spend half as much time thinking about business as I do about boating....I'd be rich.

Whatever the case, you will be missed.

Larry, Larry, Larry...you know me too well but let's just say this....I DO think you need to adjust the boat image shown on the trophy. I'm not saying it necessarily has to be the GB 36WBSF (WannaBe Sport Fish) but doing so could perhaps improve your chance of personally winning this prestigious award....

Eric: I never doubted that you would stand with Marin on the forward-raked stuff, and it would be scary to meet the person who preferred those ridiculous mods over the real thing. It sounds as if I like the GB 36 more than Marin does. Looking forward to the anchor thread.

So is Marin going to take the "new math bait"? I hope so. I really enjoy your prose!
