What is an AssWhaffle?
An AssWhaffle, not to be confused with asswaffle, is actually a very good thing. An AssWhaffle is that person who will lean on your dock box with a cold beer and tell you what you’re doing wrong on that smokey diesel as you swear, kick and sweat. AssWhaffles will come to your rescue with a cold beer, a willing hand, tools and shared lessons learned the hard way. Like a child you won’t listen at first, but someday after you’ve “matured” in this life of wind and sails you may become an AssWhaffle, passing along your own knowledge and experience to someone in need.
An AssWhaffle might be an arm chair sailor who has forgotten more than most know. Although they have their reasons for not being on the water they love anymore, they will share stories of a glorious past. Listen to these stories carefully and you may learn, laugh or walk away shaking your head in disbelief, but you just might get a glimpse into your own future. Just remember to keep your BS filter turned on because some of those stories might even be true.
An AssWhaffle will loan you his cleanest dirty shirt for that job interview at the bike rental shop you need to refill your cruising kitty.
An AssWhaffle will, in jest, point out the errors of your ways so that you may become a safe and efficient AssWhaffler yourself. If you jeopardize the safety of yourself, your vessel or those around you the laughter will stop and help and education will be immediately dispensed as needed.
An AssWhaffle is a little funky, eccentric, makes up their own rules and marches to the beat of a drum that you may not hear… yet. Stick around and you may begin to hear that drum too.
