Oops, last comment was an experiment in irony gone wrong. Must wake up before typing!

Nice job on the Examiner article.

O Docker....what the heck? I have the text of your comment and will put it back there if you don't.

Your online persona is based on the "rivalry" between your well-kept pristine dock and my crumbling shanty-town of a dock. Feel free to poke fun at our race results, general smell, or even our superior restroom facilities.

Ah, my genteel yachtsmen dockmates have taught me the fine doctrine of noblesse oblige.

Proper deportment dictates that we be restrained and deferential in victory. Boorishness is not to be tolerated.

It should be enough to know that I have defended the honor of this sceptered concrete set in a silver sea, this O Dock.

I got syndicated at Sail World and Seabreeze.

They didn't exactly ask me if they could do that but what the hell, I'm FAMOUS!

Excellent use of Baylining!

That word & usage needs to make it into the modern boating lexicon.

EVK4 said...

BJ, I sent it to Urban Dictionary. Do you remember what thread I stole that term from on SA?

Tillerman said...

There is also a Facebook group How to make fun of a sailor.

Now you're really famous.

Baylining! I like it. Pretty appropriate for the NW where most Bayliners were built!

Very Cool header picture!! But it should be expected of someone with their own photoboat AND a spot on the SF Examiner rooster.

We're not worthy, we're not worthy...

And now Scuttlebutt has syndicated Edward's article. This is huge. I expect he will be able to retire on the proceeds from all the click-doohickey-thingies and sail around the world with his family.
