Default Once again, I beg T2x, write the book.

You can't make this stuff up! It might almost be time to write the book, "The Characters of Offshore" This book can be split into chapters, by ? Nationality? Country of origin? Geographical Residence? I am sure T2x can come up with something. I like to add, I am glad I don't fit into any of his categories.

Phillip:

Now, you're confusing me..........

The Apache I referred to was a pleasure boat...not a race hull.

But, they were definitely Apache race "fans".

From a sailor (cough) at heart it is a line. From a skier at heart it is a tow rope. Milk....Melk....Napkin....Nafkin....there are times when both apply even on a vessel....boat....

You don't cast a rope, you cast a line. If it's on a boat it's a line.
