    You know same as guy above, don't know how to. But I should be taking a vacation there for a few days, before starting any new jobs. But I always wanted to go sailing and be on a boat.

    Surferjock - I just signed on last night and have been wandering around this site ever since. Great Bio. I'll get mine up soon. I sailed for many years and went to power five years ago (Carver 346 aft cabin in Cabrillo). Don't hate me. Just wanted to squeeze a Sunday night out of the weekend trips to Catalins and make into the office Monday morning.

    Would love to crew for you or meet up on the island. I only know two or three other gay boaters. Both are in my Yacht Club and I'll not name it online. Psyched to meet one more (that is out at least).

    I'm in Long Beach, not that far from Marina del Rey... Personally, I love challenges and trying to overcome them. I've never sailed, but always willing to try something new. I do love the sun so....they come hand in hand, sailing and sun. Hit me up and maybe we can hang out and take the boat out for a sail?

    Why are camels called "ships of the desert"?

    Because they are full of Arabian seamen

    I find that prospective crew always discovers something else they need to do this weekend, after I mention that they should bring or rent a wetsuit. (H16).

    I mean, I can handle my own jib if I have to, but sometimes it's nice to get somebody else to do it ;)

    Abandoned the desk this afternoon and went out on the Columbia in the H16 on the spring flood. 15-20 kts. Yahoo! Flying hulls and dodging windsurfers. Don't think I hit any. (Bitch! It's starboard tack!) Still no crew. Working the tiller with one hand, the mainsheet with the other. Left foot tweaking the jibsheet and holding on with the right foot in the hiking strap. Nothing left to take pics with icon_sad.gif

    Man, I forgot how much of a glutes workout that is. I may be allowed a beer tonight icon_biggrin.gif

    Wow, could this thread get any more dead?
    Upgraded this summer to the E29. Sleeps 6 (!) Needs some work, yada yada.
    Sailing near PDX this month (repairs and trials) if anyone is interested in a bit of river time. Prolly taking a 90 mile downwind run up the river in a couple of weeks.

    Keeping the H16 too, 'cause sometimes you just feel the need for speed.

    I agree windsurfers are a pain - we had 3 Olympic hopefuls hanging around a turning mark in the race last week. But not as bad as the race officer from another club who sends their fleet around the same marks in a different direction!

    I have a wetsuit but now I sail sportsboats in Sydney so haven't used it for a long while.

    Here's the view from my desk - 5 mins to the sailing club!

    I'm not sure how entrepreneurial you are, but since your in the USA I'm guessing it's in your blood. I'd pay for what you're offering and there are thousands of guys like me with money in their pocker. A private sailboat, a gay captain. If you're not hot in speedos, maybe some crew members who are. Playful crew members would double the price. A nice hotel at either end of the trip. $10,000? Just throwing that out there.

    Hey buddy. I am not in L.A at the moment. Sailing is a passion of mine. Are you looking to cruise or just sail around the coast somewhere ? Feel free to email me back on here anytime.

    LASurferJock saidHey guys, looking for people interested in sailing in the LA area. Let me know if you are interested? Thanks!!


    Here's an opportunity for prospective LA Sailors:

    http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/boa/4234040827.html
    00202_cAsQjhegy9Z_600x450.jpg

    What does captian kurt, popeye, captain hook and tommy lee have in common? They are all bad ass people. Why? Because they were all in command of ships. You should be in command of a ship. You should buy my boat.

    I can offer you the opportunity to be in command of this Catalina 27 sailing ship for about the cost of a lot of the stupid stuff you bought, buy or are thinking about buying. I present the following:

    Malls & Nipple Milk
    I can tell you this; the boat I am selling is less than the cost of that couch you bought at Pottery Barn* after spending 3 weeks researching it on Google**. I don't care if your favorite mall doesn't have a roof on it and has a theme. You should be ashamed of half of the mall things you spent hard earned cash money and time on. None of it will take you across oceans and it will not get you a buffaloes milk at Two Harbors (or a nimby cup). Not even close. Do you want your only source of alcohol laden milk to be your pregnant girlfriends nipple because I guarantee it doesn't have 8 types of rum and 4 types of artificial sweetener in it. If it does muchacho then you should be hanging out with jcvd on a regular basis and won't be needing this said boat. Back to your mall things.. If you add up the cost of your bed frame, mattress, headboard, box spring, stupid fancy pillows from Target, decorative duvet cover with a cool pattern from ikea and your designer pajamas it probably costs as much as I'm asking and you can have a f*$king BOAT of which can sleep 5 people and will guarantee you more bidness. You won't find that guarantee in the bedding department at Macy's. Note: your lame duvet made from rare dead birds is always on sale, you did not hit the Macy's Bed Bath and Beyond jackpot and score a 300 feather count for 35% off, everyone did and just because you laughed at some actor making fun of Bed, Bath and Beyond doesn't give you a pass for going there or not going there. And are you really spending your miniscule amount of free time on Earth counting feathers or laughing at jokes about retail stores? And by the way, if you are the type of person who covers your bed with any amount of (especially more than two) decorative pillows, please do not call about my Boat. I am not interested in selling this to a decorative pillow type which is too bad because you my friend are the type that needs this boat more than anyone.

    Recreation, Drinking and Sea Monkeys
    I understand you have many options on how to spend your free time. How you choose to recreate says a lot about a human being. What I am offering you is the open Pacific Ocean, fishing, going to islands, breathing salty air at sea, breathing atomic four gas powered exhaust fumes, drinking rum, drinking whiskey, drinking cheap beer, drinking expensive beer, drinking the dead sea monkeys floating in the drink that your friend backwashed, spear fishing anything that moves, endless supply of gold colored fish to make into tacos, trapping crabs, getting crabs, free membership to hbyc, a money pit, a fist pumping teeth grinding laser eating dance platform, a new kitchen, a boom that might hit you in the head, a $270 slip fee, the ability to t-bone a stand up paddle boarder, the ability to bbq a t-bone steak, the ability to bone in the v-birth, the chance to see whales, the improved chance to bring a whale out of najas and tying knots. These are fine things. These are gentlemanly things. They certainly beat sitting in car traffic towing your sand rail or three wheeler past a bunch of meth labs to glamis or driving a boat in circles in the std filled cess pool commonly referred to as "the river" or any other so called lake. Does a real man or woman want to recreate in a standing pool of "fresh water" or in a hot desert with a bunch of drunk yahoos with engines strapped to their backs?

    Fast Transport
    This boat travels as fast as your Audi on the 405. 6 knots at best. And you spent over $30K. Way more than a domestic car just because of the cool logo, neat ads and foreignness of it. Not to mention the way it makes you feel when you look at it after you park it. You could have got a Ford, a 3 wheeler, a sand rail and this boats for the same price. Enough said.

    360 Degree Ocean View and the Mexican Navy
    Always wanted an ocean view? See above description of how lucky you are. This boat comes with an ocean view of your damn choosing! Imagine a house that could do that. Those creepy realtor types would be drooling all the way to the bank. (Please no inquiries if your picture is on your business card). For the price of a ocean front strand house you could buy a boat like this every month of the year. In fact for $3,000,000 (reasonable price for a strand house) you could buy 600 boats like this. That's more than the entire navy of Mexico. What would you do with that many boats? You could tie them together end to end and stretch them from Manhattan Beach pier to Hermosa Beach pier 1.7 times. Toss in a few more and you could have a two way sailboat highway spanning the two piers. This would be enough to move the annual 6 man party to sea and save the fun in a town loosing its charm faster than antartica is loosing glacial ice. Everyone would be happy because the kids could again dress up, beam each other with volleyballs and drink booze in the open sun on a WEEKEND. You would be the damn Kevin Bacon of the beach area. People would make movies of how you returned the joy to such an under privileged area of LA. (Math: 1.8 miles between piers = 9504' / 27' boat length = 352 boats required for a one way span.)

    Screen World or Water World?
    Each day the average person spends ?? hours staring at a computer screen, ?? watching a television screen, and ?? hours looking at a smart phone screen. (You do the math). The hope is that eventually there will be enough devices "invented" whereby 24 hours of your day is spent looking at a radiation emitting electronic display screens. These devices with clever names starting with i will range in size to span every increment of that Home Depot tape measure you never use. This will be toped by the inevitable invention of a gigantic screen that allows up to three people to be imbedded in, is only 2 microns thick, is named after a fruit and hurtles through outer space endlessly. I have good news for you my screen collecting swollen eyeball friend. This boat comes with an lcd tv screen and there is cell service all the way to Catalina Island! So you don't have to skip the pirate dress up wine mixer because you are worried about missing all those great things happening on social media and on dvd.

    Boat Includes
    -- 4 sails
    -- Atomic four engine
    -- Mast
    -- Boom
    -- Hull
    -- Rudder
    -- Tiller
    -- The book sailing for Dummies (You must have an IQ of at least 30 to learn how to sail)
    -- A bow with no arrows
    -- A bunch of life vests

    Attention Doomsday Preppers
    If you are a doomsday prepper then you have just hit the powerball lottery scratch off confetti falls out of the sky jackpot. Feel free to go into one of those evangelist religious on stage convulsions right now because when shit hits the fan in L.A. (and it will) do you want to be on the roof of your liqour store with a high powered riffle or in the open ocean reading moby dick with a milky rum drink in your skilled knot tieing hands?

    In Summary
    This boat is cheap, it gives you access to buffaloes milk, it is more fun than your current hobbies, it is fast enough, it has an ocean view, it comes with a TV, comes with everything you need and it m
