Therefore I would like to see a forum dedicated to the art of sailing.

Racing
Cruising
Maintenance
Re-fits

Race schedules, like;

Van Isle 360
Everglades Challenge
Sydney to Hobart
TranPac
TransAt

Cruising with your sweety, at least 1/8th the way

Cruising with a dog, at least to the 200 mile limit

Cruising with your cat, at least to the channel entrance.

I will send $10.00 yearly to your company and bring in all sorts of know it alls from various sailing venues.

And if your extra special, I will let you swab the deack and learn the finer points of a galley when your heeling at 35 degrees in 30 knots.

Who is with me on this one?

This is not one stop shop mate

With over tens years of membership on some of the Nets largest sailing sites, I was just trying to introduce some of the basement dwellers and conspiracy people to a new idea. I realise that this is not a one stop anything. Thanks for stopping in.

I love the enthusiasm, but I cannot concur that sailing is as important as eating or breathing.

If it was, Jesus or evolution would have made us with little sails growing from our backs and arms.

I was on a sailboat once from Cape Town harbor to Robben Island, and it was a fantastic feeling.
It was like shaving through the water.

Of course we payed to be sailed, and sailing itself sounds awfully complicated, with maths, and compasses, and wind directions and knots.

I'm not sure I could ever be clever enough to do it.

It makes for a fantastic physique however.

Hi Halfoldman, what happened to your other half?

Yes, sailing is important to those that sail, those that pay to be sailed, would/could never understand it.

It is awfully complicated, that is what makes it so rewarding, flying a plane is complicated to, and that to is awesome.

Yes my girlfriend concurs, after 6 months of hard sailing, my body is as hard as the sailing was.

No disrespect, but Cape town has one of the grimiest dirtiest stinking harbors in the world. Come to the Gulf islands, Juan de Fuca, Haida Gwaii, you sail there you will know what it is like to be alive.

If you have a spare 30k CAD laying around in your pockets, I can get you a ride this June 8-22nd on a 40+ foot racing boat for a race around Vancouver Island. You can be Suiy the sue chef!!!

Cheers

Trying to play the devil's advocate here, like perhaps people interested in sailing would come here and in turn be introduced to alternative subjects they otherwise would have avoided.

But no. This is a conspiracy/alternative subject website. I feel that you have trolled and failed.

Actually no, you missed it 100%

Sailors would come here to talk sailing, and in turn teach basement dwellers and tin foil hat makers that there is more to life than doom porn, gay talk, and arguing.

Most sailors could give 2 flips for your alternative subjects.

Love the enthusiasm but doubt this will happen here. I love sailing and have been on sailboats on and off for over 25 years. The last one my family owned was a 68' Irwin named the Lazy Bones. If I could I would be on a sailboat for life.

I did not see this as a viable issue to begin with, I just wanted to see where it went, who it went with.

I can see now there are two sports sections in Off topic, one is USA sports and will cover things like the Americas Cup, and an International sports forum to cover the really good stuff. I missed the International sports form before I posted this OP.

Please french kiss me and say you forgive me.

:-)

Mods you can lock this, close it or jam it in your pipe.

This was actually it....guess it was 75' and I just forgot. I made this brochure for the crew when we decided to start chartering it out a LONG a$$ time ago.

Loved that boat..


Lazy Bones

This was the last one that is.....had about 4 or 5 before it and all named Lazy Bones. I think we started with a 54' but not positive about that as I was young. Irwin made some KILLER boats.

Interesting idea! But ATS is not the place. The majority here have no idea what a jibe is and no clue what is involved with the concept of tacking.

Life is a reach, then you jibe.

Cheers! and fair winds...

PS
Your best bet is in the survival threads. I've shared some of my open water experiences and ditch bag concepts in that forum before. IF TSHTF just set sail for a remote location and never turn back.

We were on a trip at one point somewhere near Green Turtle Key and happened to anchor near another Irwin. They saw us and hopped in their dinghy and came over and it was actually Irwin himself. Not everyday you get to meet the maker of your boat. We stuck around there a couple days talking boats before we all moved on. Great memories.

Ballast: 23000 lbs

Can understand why you loved this boat.

40 tonnes, skipper needed a good license for this girl.

Yeah...it got to be too much for us to handle ourselves once we had a few people on with us so we had to get a captain and crew....just 2 people....husband and wife team. This was the one we had to move to the Caribbean because of depth....used to keep them in the Bahamas but had issues finding areas deep enough to cruise. Ahhh....those were the days.

Love Irwins!! Chartered and Irwin 43 center console and sailed around the smaller islands in the Bahamas a number of moons ago. Great experience for a sailor who is used to the Great Lakes primarily. The Biminis, Berries and out to Abaco. Good memories.

Ha...small world. It's not like Irwins were ever in abundance so the fact you sailed one is pretty cool. Yeah..that area was one of my favorites. The Abacos....yes.....great memories.

I think he's right. What would be the relevance of sailing on a conspiracy website? And, would the people who are dedicated to sailing really want their forums to be part of a conspiracy site? Wouldn't you rather just create your own site which is purely for sailing?
