    Default Max aka Sailbad The Sinner

    It was very sad news that I received from Lucy, Max's widow this morning. Max passed away last week due to Cancer.

    She asked me to pass this new onto Matt and Colin. ( I am assuming Coliholic). I have emailed Matt, but unfortunately I do not have Colin's email anymore and I do not know whether he still is around here.

    I saw Max last on a sailing boat hence my posting here.

    If someone could pass the info along that would be good.

    Best

    RIP Will miss his sense of humour although it is years since I saw his last post.

    Really, really sad news - Max was one of the stalwarts of the forum when I first joined, with a great sense of humour, no doubt due to his Scouse origins. Not sure if jimi will see this, but one of my all-time favourite threads concerned Max's stag cruise on Glen Rosa (I think I'm remembering this correctly) which involved some slightly seat of the pants sailing, courtesy of tcm. He (i.e. Max) can't have been any age, and I think he and his wife had young kids? Awful, just awful.

    Pretty sure Coliholic is still here, but now posts as reallycoliholic?

    As a postscript, I have just found the thread in question, which is as entertaining a read as I remember. Max's replies are classic Sailbad, particularly his comment that jimi couldn't tell lager from Lagavulin ( I understand that jimi is a reformed character nowadays, but the legend lives on).

    Why is it always the good guys who go first, and never the complete and utter to$$ers?

    Sad.

    If that doesn’t persuade all the smokers to quit, nothing will. But nicotine is a vey very addictive drug.

    Quite. And so many people that don't post here any more, for whatever reason..

    To add, an aquaintance told me a while back that it was, for him, more difficult to give up smoking than heroin.

    I'm so sorry to hear this.Max was one of the good guys and much to young to leave us. Thoughts are with his wife and family.
