Good Bye Marin Faure

Looks like this is it Marin,

I'll not only miss you but in many ways. Back in 08 or 09 you made me furious many many times. Frustrated to the point of quitting TF who knows how many times. "He just dosn't get it" and you were say'in the same of me I'm sure. But as the posts rolled, tumbled and crashed by I got to know you. It was easy. You're not a man to hide anything like an opinion or two so it wasn't long before I knew what was coming from Marin Fare. I developed a new hobby that I'm a bit ashamed of and that is that it became fun to bait you in this direction or that but you rarely moved about in your opinions ... Are you a Capricorn? Most all the time when the Fare feet touched the ground they didn't move even an inch after. More frustration of course. But I began to develop a new appreciation for you and even if you were too stubborn and failed to see the point of this or that to my satisfaction we began to show respect for one another on the board and I don't see that changing.

With you gone I'm going to feel somewhat vulnerable. You've always been out there in front (10000 posts can't be wrong) and I could always slide back and leave you to do the battles I couldn't measure up to and didn't know shit about. Now I'm being more selective about threads.

We do seem a bit addicted to TF and I've given some thought to dropping out for the summer so as not to do the rut thing (no not that rut).

But I suspect you have a serious conflict in your life w TF and must move on to more important things. Now that we've talked about everything it isn't exactly like the good old days and the threads are getting more social and silly and less about boats but I'm frequently surprised at a thread and think "why haven't we talked about that before?".

So now your'e moving on in life and I'm wishing you happy wakes and new and stimulating experiences. I know you'll settle for nothing less.

As always

Eric

There was once a man who told me that, regardless of what the effort was for, doing it so completely (like 10,000 shares) should be measured by ones own opportunity to be affected by them. I think Eric has voiced that very well.

Sincere thanks for your years of sharing. Whether they have inspired us or provoked us, they are all food for change and introspection in ourselves. Those of us that decided to use them for our own growth have benefitted greatly, and those of us that didn't have probably closed doors to much of our self-realization. You have "un-apologetically" been a leader of this forum since the beginning, and I'll miss you, Marin. Best wishes, even though I'm sure you'd rather not hear it.

I understand that Marin has other adventures to conquer, and wish him well- but at the same time, I don't understand his logic for drooping out at 10k posts...

..but, it's not really mine to understand.

Sorry, but he's the only person on this forum I've got on "ignore" (too much baiting and too many belittling personal attacks toward those who didn't deserve it for my tastes) so I missed the exiting. Was it grand, or subtle?

He will be back! Once you are hooked, you need a fix!

I see his post count is fixed as it has not moved from 9,996 the last dozen for so posts, so he will not reach 10,000, or he may come back under another name?

I am sure he will still lurk!

Back in '07', Marin and I got off to a rocky start. I attacked him for his long winded posts, "know it all attitude", etc. I couldn't wait to see who and what he would skewer next. He probably made more enemies than friends but I am not one of them. (Enemy, that is.)

Marin Faure is one smart dude. A very talented writer and the most curious person I have ever run across. He has traveled extensively, learned from it and shared it with anyone who cared to read his writings. Yes, he could be rather caustic at times, yet very supportive in defending a friend or cause.

I hope that this hiatus is a brief one as his impact on this forum will be missed. (Certainly by me.)

I'm a bit mystified about this thread, as I don't see any evidence that Marin Faure is leaving the forum, other than he hasn't posted anything in the last few minutes.
I certainly hope he is still here.

I don't know who Marin Fare is, but I hope that Marin Faure is not leaving the forum.

When I posted this thread he had 6 posts left.

Fair winds and following seas, Marin. I feel like a classmate of yours as we have gone along in parallel through cyberspace about all things boats(and airplanes). I hope you choose to hang around. I think deciding to leave based on an arbitrary number of posts is silly. Nobody will harass you if you decide to hang around....okay, maybe some of us will!!!....

Take care amigo and trawler on,
John

When did Marin say he was leaving the forum, did I miss it ? I will certainly miss his input.
Cheers

And here i was looking forward to seeing whether the post counters here on TF could reach the 100,000 post mark.

Hope you are well Marin.
