I think it is more likely the other way around. Many people do not come off very well in text only....while in person they might be more fun.

Wifey B: I think a lot of that. The personality doesn't show through. There are a couple here who I know come across as cranky old men and yet I know those who have met them and spent time around them and call them the friendliest, most hospitable people you'd ever meet. I know one couple that was uncomfortable here and they're two of the most interesting people you could ever know.

There are people I've known as acquaintances from business or similar that really don't seem very likable but put them in a setting with their kids and you see the most incredible family and what great parents they are.

I think we forget sometimes that everyone here has their own family, extended family, and friends, own workplaces or communities. This is just a small part of their lives. Even in a gathering like the one in Fort Pierce, you just get a glimpse of who they are.

Hey, I spend plenty of time on my boat in the nude and in my skimpy bikini.


What a minute, maybe that's why nobody wants to cruise with me

Isn't that the first briefing you give to crew, "If you have to get me up in case of emergency, don't worry about my lack of pants!"

Thing is outside those here who have actually spent time together, speculating on who they'd enjoy an extended cruise with is like gallery shooting. Someone might be huge fun here and a total %$# in person.

Just finished a great tennis match. Went to play and returned home by water. Now, being totally lazy. Putting everything off till tomorrow.
WifeyB,

Good points. I could argue that most of the folks here would be great for docktails, perhaps a few days traveling together, but in separate boats and plenty to be learned from others here. Once one REALLY gets to know the other, then perhaps a week trip would workout fine.

I'd be glad to take training from some of the training captains here and pick up a few good pointers. But that's only a short time, and a different venue.

A long trip (longer than 3 days) together on the same boat would be hard to do with a stranger, regardless of how many posts they've made. My typical profile, is I just don't boat (or fly) with strangers. Perhaps a close relative of a friend at times, like a wife, would be ok. As a rule I don't take kids on the boat, just too much risk for the benefit. In fact, I don't like to even give a tour to someone I don't know.

As for the bikinis or booze..... I've don't care what someone wears, but the booze starts after the boat is secured somewhere.

Another issue here is that we have a lot of type A personalities and a lot of folks with a ton of experience and set ways to operate a boat. Two captains on a boat does not work, so if a guest can't follow the captains orders and pays attention to the brief, they should stay on the dock.

I'll make some exceptions to the above, depending.

Just food for thought.

Janice is a really neat person, see her at our Legion. She runs a really cute small trawler that gets a lot of looks and she runs it very efficiently and well. She does seem to take the time to meander and experience things. She's a hoot!

Sometimes the guest is the captain or in some cases should be.

For another angle on this thread:

The boat crew cruises on their stomach. With that in mind, I could probably cruise with Irv (Bigsfish) on Gotcha simply because I know Watfa is a wonderful cook. Not saying Irv isn't a good captain, but you've got to have priorities.

Other wonderful cooks that come to mind are Lena on Hobo (no idea how Larry stays so thin), and Jackie on Magic.

Now this isn't meant to be sexist, as my my preferred cooks are ladies, but after you've met Irv and Larry, well you know who the master chefs are.

Heck Ted...based on most dockmaster greetings...


The first words out of their mouths are where the best places in town are to eat...not what the tidal range or current is, not what shoals are in the area, not the local bridge opening schedule, not their electrical inadequacies, etc...etc


So I guess many owners are dock seekers then restaurant seekers... so the on board cooks better be 5 star like those you mentioned.


You should do a reality show Ted....IPA beer drinking and eating my way around the Great Loop....I know you could get enough invites with your traveling cooler...

Pics or it didn't happen.

Congrats on the booze thing. You definitely will look better in a bikini for it. Human metabolism and the modern US diet are not compatible.

As a result of this forum I will try Armagnac when I get the chance. I tried red wine also from a recommendation on this forum. I think it was an oil thread. Felt good as reported.

Another thread could be: Who has been the worst influence on you?

Scott, now that's a good idea! Traveling craft beer cooler in search of a boat party.

The big boat moved around the west coast of NA, but is sold now. New one under construction. We live in Gloucester, MA. Grady is a 285 Freedom which is great for bopping around locally, watching whales, etc.

I've cruised alone lots. With very boat knowledgeable individuals at times. And I've cruised with total 'green' companions. Each mode has it benefits and disadvantages.
