Thread starter #1
Okay people, these threads are getting a lot of looks, but not a lot of posts. My guess is winter is getting some of you a little stir-crazy, you've done all the off-season maintenance you care to, and you're just sitting and waiting for things to warm up.

So here's your big chance! Think up something funny! Give the rest of us something to read! Give this board a little action!

You might be going throught sailing withdrawl if...

... you TIVO'd "Master and Commander" and spent six hours looking for rigging deficiencies.
I haven't sailed enough to have sailing withdrawals, but by december I start to go through surfing withdrawals. I start to have recurring nightmares that usually go like this:
we all pile into the car for our annual roadtrip to the beach, we finally get there, I'm in the water for about an hour, and then my parents come and tell us that the vacation's over. I've woken up in a cold sweat over that one before.
oh yeah, I've also seriously considered trying to create a solar powered surfboard with some old solar panels and motors that my grampa had so I could sort of kind of surf in the lake near my house. the plan didn't go very far, as that would probably require the destruction of a surfboard.
