When I use the F- Word it usually relates to my F-Boat, Farrier or Formula that is!

May be all sailors should learn to speak Welsh as there are no swear words in our vocabulary.

What the *NOODLE* is up with this thread? :P


My thoughts exactly. Doesn't anybody sail anymore? Everyone has so much time to think about these things.

If anyone feels that it is a problem with cat sailors, try hanging around keelboat sailors for a while.

I don't think the swear words need to be used on this site or any site. You can't just walk away when you have already read the word. I guess I can just not read any post from the people who swear a lot on this site. Swearing to me shows lack of education, lack of one's control, a lower class person. If you went for a job interview or a first date would you use the word ? No it would just show that you were lower class or uneducated. Why use it on this forum ? Do you not have any respect for the others that use this forum. The dictionary says the word is slang/vulgar: have sexual intercourse with. Does this mean when you say ---- you that means you want to have sex with that person or when a boat hits you and you say ----, you want to have sex with that boat

I agree my kids keep asking me what does the word “funk” or WTF stand for and I’m really getting tired of trying to explain. Then there’s the “S” word for “shoot” do you folks really want to gun down each other like you did with the Indians or what? <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

Personally, I always feel better after I've turned the air "blue". Being a rebel at heart, it helps that the behavior is anitsocial.

So I guess you never take a child or youth sailor out on your boat with you? <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />


Never have.

Well, you learn something new everyday. I thought funk meant "the blues", a depressed state.

Instead, my dictionary says, ". . . cower in fear".

Go figure. Gives "funky music" a whole new meaning.

I know we shouldn't aggravate the situation, but it isn't like they don't see the words everywhere anyway.

It's not a problem with cat sailors or keelboat sailors or any kind of sailors.

It's just a matter of being rude, disrespectful and ignorant in your choice of words in company of mixed genders and ages OR in a public forum.

Well, the migration routes of the Monarch butterfly are threatened. And, we've had to make a beach off limits so that the Golden Plover can rest.

All very important stuff.

If it's A public forum, there's room for debate. But, if it's YOUR public forum, then, indeed, it is a matter of courtesy. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Why didn't you say that in the first place! I wouldn't smoke in your living room, I won't cuss on your forum!

Gotta go to a b'day party!

Is it actually public? Can't any of us be booted at any time, without any real reason. I think of public as tough "cookie" you can't boot me out. There's a bill going through the house in MN banning smoking in bars/resturants. On one hand I like that I won't have to smell it when I go out and murder brain cells by the fistfull. Yet its a crushing blow to rights of property owners, with the exception of Muni's, bars are privately owned and operated. So next time somebody drops a colourfull explitive boot em' out, or deal with it. Heck doesn't replace the word for a warm place of screaming souls, its just a PC way to say it. They are one in the same. Using euphemisms only bastardize's and destroys our language. And no, that is not a swear word in this context.


I'm boatless.

I agree with those who say go sail more. I missed out on all the F-word discussion because I was out crewing in the PCCC Spring Series. The wind was blowing like [noodle]. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" />

In Ireland we use the word feck a fair bit - it's a mild form of the word <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" /> To feck something, can be to throw it, to steal it, or you just say "Well feck it anyway", if you are giving out about something.

BUT, I have noticed this for some time (No offence Mary) If things are quiet on the forum, business being business, Mary will start a thread to get the numbers up, "What's the deal with the F Word", Sailing for absolutely everybody", "How many regattas...", "Why have a multihull..", etc. As we say in Ireland, "More power tcha Mary" <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

If any of you bothered to read my initial post when I started this thread, you are well aware that nobody said you can't use whatever language you want, as much as you want. I was merely expressing my opinion. However, some of the reactions are very interesting. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" />

Dermot, when are you coming over here to sail? It was only about 27C here today and with a nice 10 knots. I took a neighbor out for a sail. He had never been on a cat, just his sunfish, so I let him drive from the wire. I won't tell you his exact words but he said sailing the cat on one hull was FFantastic!

Now he wants me to find him a used Hobie 18 or Prindle. Anyone got one for cheap?

I did send him to this web site Classified section and I'm giving him one of my old issues of Catamaran Sailor. Hopefully I will soon have someone to race with.

I will be in Palo Alto for a wedding on July 26th 2008 - that's almost as far from you as I am at the moment <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />
