    The new Jeanneau Riviera, sick. Some say they're a bit of a brick in the water but the accomodations make up for it.

    It says Islander 30 in the ad. From the pics and price, I'd consider buying it. Must have been looking for the other Craigslist thread.

    The great thing about converting to two backstays is that you only need half as many attachment points. Brilliant really.

    Junk on the trunk

    We have one similar to that which is great at anchor. We either hang it from the jib halyard also attached to the forestay to center it in foretriangle, or hang it off the boom. When in the foretriangle if you get a good set of waves you get to fly over the edges like a pendulum, pretty fun. When out from the boom, you keep it on a clutch and winch and you can just release and dunk someone, then bring them back up. Good times.

    "Catalina 30...one of the best racer / cruisers available" https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/boa/6051121400.html I will say that I have nothing against Catalinas as I have one, but I've never seen a statement like the one above or a C30 fitted out for racing like this one has.

    ... and it's floating around hitting other people's boats now. Even though the guy knows its loose.

    Radio controlled sailing

    You could always find a balance between small enough to toss in the pond and large enough to cross an ocean... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lReTd6V33MM .. But seriously, i've wanted to get into RC sailboats for awhile. I think it would be awesome to hook up a live feed from the stern with a fish-eye shot showing the trim and surrounding and a super long range remote-thingy.

    Had some strong winds for the past day here and I found a similar scenario on may way into work this morning. This is on Weems Creek where if you recall, we had the recent Ranger 28 sinking as well as plenty of other strong candidates. This Columbia 26 is one of many that go out there to slowly perish. Not sure of the bottom state there, but I believe there is rip-rap for the bridge, just not sure how far it goes and if the keel is banging around there.

    Pretty well used for never being in the water. Pretty sure someones been squating in it for a few years at least.

    Merlin at 75 mph

    That would be pretty ironic looking back on how Dorade's seaworthiness was perceived

    That boat has a really small interior for a 28 foot boat. (pic 5) This boat sank on Thursday. I saw it being raised on Saturday so I stopped by the boat ramp just near it to check it out. Two people sitting in lawn chairs watching and I came up saying "lost another one, huh?" (a different boat sank and was raised on the same creek this year). They said they were the owners I quickly sobered up my tone but the boat had been listed on craigslist for two years using the sales brochure from '78. I spoke with the guy for a bit and he was just concerned about salvaging the engine. As if theres a huge demand for old beat-up and sunk Atomic 4s. He proceeded to give me a lecture on making sure your pumps work and you have batteries, and yada yada yada, all of which I am religious about with my boat. Get this though, he tries to sell me the boat!!!! Even knowing I have one, have seen his craigslist add forever and I just watched it being raised from the locker!!! This whole interaction blew me away. No, I'm good man but good luck. his stupid for sale ad: https://annapolis.craigslist.org/boa/5825754615.html And the anonymous post warning him it's going to sink: https://annapolis.craigslist.org/boa/5818113879.html

    Whaaa? The new Mac26?? So confusing. A rig like that paired with a 70hp motor is 6th mode. More freeboard than SA though.

    /\ I drive by this boat on Weems creek on my way to work everyday. I think it was either early spring or last fall I noticed it's waterline raising day by day until there was just 10' of mast and the butt of that dingy sticking up. Stayed like that for a couple weeks, then one day all the sudden it's floating again on it's mooring (wtf?). Not sure who covered the cost to re-float it just to sit there and continue to look like shit and never move, still all tattered from spending some time in the drink. I have a feeling that the somewhat well off residents chipped in and they would rather have to look at a floating zombie than a sunk zombie. It makes my commute interesting as I look out from the bridge every day wondering if its slipped back in. ..And some more content as I'd love to see more. (following on the theme from the bottom)
