    You have to offer us free boat rides in exchange for our secret techniques.

    J/K of course. Welcome!

    Welcome to the forum!

    I like to see the diverse occupations and folks on this forum. Boat captain? Sounds very cool. I think you should be required to have a pipe for that actually.

    Don't be afraid to ask questions, we are all (well most anyway) here to help!

    A boat captain needs a corncob pipe, de rigueur. (Channel your inner Mark Twain!)

    Ha ha ha no I don’t wear a sailor hat. My wife did get me a pipe with and anchor carved in the side. I’m thinking y’all are right I do need a cob pipe.

    Welcome.

    Are you near Paducah? Lived there for a few years and loved it. Really miss it there.

    I'm impressed with your boat captain status. That's some serious licensure. That puts you in the sequestered company of Samuel Clemens and John Hartford. I recommend the special edition Missouri Meerschaum corn cob pipes that come with acrylic stems that don't chew out quickly. I was a radioman on a minesweeper in the South China Sea for several prolonged patrols, but it wasn't my career, and I was allowed to a rare change from radioman to journalist because of turbulent times in the U.S. Navy, back during the Trojan War.

    I mean I think I should get both of them at least right . I’m thinking pipes are like guns can never have enough in your collection. mso489 thank you for your service.
