Starscream,

I agree with everything you said except this:
Almost everyone is going to get this virus.
Statistics on the virus don’t back that up. Everything else is copacetic.

I was just reading the latest e-mail from Dockwa, a service supplying information about marinas.

In this latest e-mail, was information about how boaters can stay safe in this age of the Coronavirus. There was one paragraph that caught my eye, and I thought it applied to our little universe of sailors.
Note: It should be very obvious that we are not doctors. Do not source your health advice solely from a boating blog.

In case anyone thinks I am directing this at them, I am not :!: I am just stating the obvious. Sometimes we overthink things.

I've been accused of overreacting, overlooking, over complicating, overreaching, over exposing, and overserving. But, no one ever accused me of over-thinking. My wife says I'm not capable of thinking, period. Much less over-thinking. 8)

Yeah, I'm bummed like is it the end of the world? I want to go out and play but they closed everything. I feel like it's the end of the world.

I wonder if we will be able to go out and play at all??

I just now came in from a brisk walk. 3.8 miles (6.1 KL) in one hour. No one on the street to touch, or breath on me. Perfectly healthy.

BOAT, go out and play. Just remember what wives have been telling husbands for centuries about women, and apply it to being near anything while outside with the Coronavirus, “You can look, but don’t touch”.

P.S. just read this minutes after posting. So BOAT, go out and play.

Can we go sailing? Will corona virus get us even on the boat?

I hope sailing doesn't close out. I'm looking forward to going again soon unless we get some statewide lockdown notice. There was no problem maintaining social distance at the ramp the other day. May be different on the weekend. With the restaurant closed, there is nobody just hanging around.

Just tried to take my recyclables to the recycling center. They're closed...

Nope. That's the problem; I'm not in a pickle match.

Ok-- I stared at the signature and didn't get it. My son looked at it for 2 seconds and said "its a sailboat!". Was he right? :?:
