Pinned toot

If you follow me, I do boost unCW'd stuff from POC talking about the frankly fucking ridiculous violence that is committed against them.
You can unfollow me or hide boosts from me on my profile.

If you ever think, "I should tell this person to CW stuff", let that thought die before your fingers touch the keyboard, or you can just DM that shit straight to me so that you feel heard, and I know that I never should have accepted your follow in the first place.

Had a random idea and decided to execute on it. Here's the rough first draft of what you can expect if you follow me:

Looking to connect with Sailors/Boat Folks

If I offend or upset you, I am completely open to criticism. I really appreciate interacting with you all, and if I screw up, you don't owe me anything, but I would be grateful for the opportunity to learn. I am well aware that I do insensitive or just bad things at times. I am human, but being flawed doesn't make my behavior ok. I promise that I will listen carefully, not get defensive, and do work.

Pretty sure my policy from here on out is just going to be anchor where we'll be the ones most likely to drag down on people because we actually try to anchor properly and most likely won't drag.

Wow, all the obnoxious boaters waited til the 5th to go into full nuisance mode?

We've been getting buzzed by tubing boats all day, but at least they aren't packing together for parties. Yesterday was actually very nicely subdued.

Me, working in game dev,
being exactly this awkward about stuff with my colleagues.

Feeling extra alive and less terrible about my boat skills after last night. Thank for bearing with me and my continuous chattering about it for the last 18 hours or so.

Rocna anchors are great. Ours has yet to let us down. :blobcatheart:

Just remembered how our boat neighbor decided to contribute to the ongoing chaos last night by shouting profanities at the people who snagged our anchor as they tried to leave (before we realized they'd snagged us).

We kept the whole thing very civil because we had bigger problems to worry about, and here's this dude who is totally uninvolved trying to get the last word in. :blobcatgoogly:

Me, realizing I can use the sighting technique from the art workshop to make sure we aren't drifting closer to shore or other boats: :blobaww:

Holy shit, they pulled our anchor up when they went to move and began towing us until we shouted at them. We had to raft up to them and disentangle, then reanchor in the middle of the night. Thankfully no one got hurt and nothing got damaged. I have adrenaline shakes.

They returned, saw how close they are, and are now scrambling to move.

If the current were to switch right now, they would absolutely smack right into us. Thankfully not the pointy end, but it would still probably be an extremely bad day for them.

Hopefully they dashed ashore to go to a bar or something responsible and will be back soon. Otherwise, we're on watch all night.

And what's even better about this whole situation is that we can't move without pulling up our anchor, which means moving from maybe getting hit range into definitely getting hit range. We knocked on the boat - no answer.

Apparently, they dropped their anchor and dashed to shore in their dinghy in the space of 10 minutes after arriving according to a neighbor, who thought they were friends that were going to raft up to us (because they're that freaking close).
