    Is that what the word "combination" refers to? The engine has only 0 hours. I am sure it will fire straight up after sitting since 1962!

    Planing Back in the Day

    That is exactly what happens on ice boats. You alway sheet in because you go faster than the wind. But that doesn't mean this thing can fly on its own accord...

    I would definitely be interested in the restored one. totally! But close to 5K for a project boat is crazy!

    If it is David Vann he will write about it. He has a lot of crazy ideas, but will also somehow try to turn these misadventures into somewhat digestible reading material. However, he is also working on an academic career. He can have some craziness in his life but not too much to mess up his cv, so unless the pandemic really got to him I have doubts that he would do this.

    40'+/- perfect racer/cruiser for $100K+/- FOUND IT

    Looks like a 4 year old put the sheets (?) around the winches, and one seems to be used as a spring line? Yeah, I know, super helpful comment, but these small details always make me wonder... Nice looking boat otherwise, as far as the pictures can tell

    Good luck! Looks like the seller has quite a collection of boats in the backyard...

    Inflatable 25 - 30 footer yachts, anyone?

    Yeah, impressive... I believe that is why the OP asked the question in the first place. Can be done with dinghies (as has been proven already). The question is whether it can be done with a keelboat. I doubt the practicality and the rigidity. No matter how good the technology, we are dealing with flexible materials full with air.

    No, this is a thread dedicated to the tin can's lives. There are already too many, way too many WTF's, so please don't make it even worse.

    Masks - "WHAT an INCONVENIENCE!"

    A rare case of being both hilarious and educative. I think he himself was also surprised at hoe effective the mask remained up to a very close distance. But, you know, don't let it impede with your "freedom"

    Masks - "WHAT an INCONVENIENCE!"

    This is the issue: people will not wear masks because masks are mostly worn to protect others, not the mask wearer. It is 90-something % about containing the droplets coming out of your mouth so you don't infect others (and a bit to keep air out of your system, but that is not the main point of masks). This is why the seat belt comparison is a poor one: seat belts are there to protect you, not to protect others (chances someone is hit by your body flying out of the window are pretty slim). Thus the couple is protected and they don't give a shite about protecting the workers in the store. It is not even coming up in their mind that they have a responsibility towards others.
