Obviously we all do something other than waste our lives at work, and play on sailboats. What do some of you folks do for entertainment other than sail?

I ride motorcycles, jet skis, I've got a kite I really like, shooting is a huge hobby for me as well. And my pickup. I love my big dumb redneck diesel pickup truck.

I used to be into jeeps and rock crawling. Not so much anymore. One morning I woke up and decided it wasn't for me and put the jeep on craigslist.

I used to do a lot of rowing. Bow seat in a quadruple scull. Haven't been doing that because of asthma issues.

I think I might actually buy a laser to toy with. I like the way they can tack on a dime. That and the H16 is sometimes too much for me to singlehand in heavy gusts. Two boats are better than one!

There you go peel, you were missing the "/" in your end tag.

shoot stuff. Lots of stuff. Pellets to .338Mag from 10 ft. to 1000 yds

Probably the only sport you can complete in an hour or less without having to hook up a trailer, assemble anything, or spend a lot of time looking for a good spot.

Used to windsurf, scuba, surf, bigboat sail, and lots of other expensive hobbies. Then came the kids... <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I also enjoy shooting stuff! I try to compete in as many bullseye tournament's as possible. The AK is for fun and not very accurate at all.

I also Love to modify old Datsuns...This is my Current "Street car" and to the untrained eye it appears to be quite stock. When i give her a little gas you hear the massive spool of the Turbo, I hit the purge button and then lay on the nitrous! Ive out run new c6zo6's, 911 Turbo's, and just yesterday put the smack down on a new Viper!
Mods: Metanol injection, Huge Trubo, Huge intercooler, 100shot of nitrous, drag radials all the time, etc.

Looking for a Job, I got credi...
Skiing when ever I can afford to take the whole family away.
playing with fast cars; saving up for a Lotus
Lego and Geomag (with the kids of course <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> )
Building the odd boat bits
Running the SCHRS management group
Fleet captain at the sailing club
Juggling and falling off my Unicycle

Oh, and playing with other peoples money for a job.


In my youth (before real responsibilities)

Bridge jumping, absailing, downhill mountain biking - go to a ski resort in the summer(winter was fun too), talk nicely to the lifties and take the bike up the lifts; "cycle/bounce/fall back down the ski-runs or mountain passes. Try not to die.....


F16 - GBR 553 - SOLD

I also talk sport here

Turbocat- Don't you just cringe when people talk up the AK? Reliable, yes, but that's about where it ends. I just built a Volquartsen 10/22, I don't know that it was worth the expense but it is an extremely nice rifle. I can't afford to shoot much more than .22 with the way ammo prices have been going through the roof.

If you're into Z-cars this should give you a chubby. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hm-hhtaCzwc

I had a 76' 280Z, maybe 78', it was ten years ago and it was a rust bucket. I was 16 when I had it. I've always regretted selling that car. Which is almost the only car I've regretted selling.

Lets see....
We have four horses; two thoroughbreds, one Hanoverian and one Trakehner. We do three day eventing (dressage, cross country and stadium jumping).

I also race RC sailboats and will soon have a 1/10th cracker box (building from scratch).

When I have time I like to waterski and snow ski.

They are a scale version of a larger boat. They are raced in 1/10th and 1/4 scale.
