    Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    This person is looking for a delivery: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/boa/d/duffy-electracraft-16-foot/6748558227.html I have an Electracraft that is 16ft that I need to have picked up in Ventura and brought to Loch Lomond Marina in San Rafael. I don't have a trailer for it, so a trailer will be needed. A Duffy or a small sailboat trailer or a ski boat type trailer with keel rollers and adjustable bunks will work. I need this moved preferably this weekend. Boat weighs about 1500 pounds. All you have to do is pick it up from boat ramp in Ventura and deliver to boat ramp in San Rafael for $350.

    The Winning Foils AC36

    Interesting. Are there secret enough spots in NZ to stay away from being filmed or photographed? Or are all NZ-landers complicit in the secrecy? Maybe we need some of these:

    Maybe I should also invest $20 in a sailing simulator. Sure more cost effective than owning an actual boat...

    Sorry if this is an ignorant question - I have only been following the developments sporadically, but am I right that only the brits and americans have a sailing/foiling test platform at this point, whereas the other team, including NZ is still messing with hydraulics and the like on shore? Not to say that the shore part is not important, but having a flying test boat at this point seems fairly essential.

    The majority of psych students signed up for that major because of personal issues. That statistic does not say anything about this sailor, of course. RIP

    RIP - Stuart Walker

    Fabulous sailor and writer. While it is not everyone's cup of tea, I really enjoyed his style of writing, theory mixed with some great entertaining stories on how he beat the rest of the fleet from a position that seemed desperate. RIP Dr. Walker!

    OK, here is an ethical dilemma: Should we warn this person not to want what he thinks he wants: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/scz/boa/d/wanted-macgregor-19/6741869637.html

    No shit! On the plus side, it seems the hull is not leaking below the waterline, although it might have been better if it did... Only 5k, as is, that means you cannot complain if it turns out the fire extinguisher turns out to be expired. What a sad state of affairs

    Frigate on the rocks, 7th fleet innocent.

    Curious! I thought this was a US specialty. Those Norwegians must be paying attention to how not to pay attention.

    The engine alone is worth more than $200. It is ok, but I am no crazy about the design... that chine makes it a rather boxy looking boat. I am not sure it would do in some waves...
