    The one 'Hawks game I haven't been able to watch this season; what a one to miss!

    Lightnin, are you going to be able to suffer through this weekend's 'Hawk game? It could be downright excruciating, what with RW running for his life and all.

    Not entirely amazing to be able to stand up in a 31' boat. That said, cooking arrangements notwithstanding, seems like a usable and well-used cruiser....

    Here's one that is under $50 / ft. Before renovations. Comes with its own garden. And no below-decks pics of the fire damage....

    But at least in theory someone would pay that amount for this boat because, well, the current owner did (in bits and pieces)... and it doesn't look bad... nice boat... ok, no one is going to pay that.

    The seller accidentally put the word "serious" two spots to the right.

    Uglyboat Admiration Society Hang Out

    I admire that they somehow managed to make it look like it was designed in minecraft, and still managed more funky than abysmal.

    I'm making a rudder

    I only came across this thread yesterday. Somewhat timely as I am half way through building a similar rudder myself, though with a good deal less natural ability, craftsmanship, and patience, alas. I've got the blank shape made out of spruce strips (on-hand and knot-free, and yes I would have loved to have red cedar) and was going to use the tablesaw method to take off the bulk material around the profile but as it happens using my router might be the better way to go... I am replacing the slab sided plywood core, blunt edged, curved (to the side) home-built rudder on my Tanzer 8.5 from two owners ago, so if I can get it reasonably fair, more or less straight, and with an actual recognizable foil shape, I am well ahead.

    I sailed out of Jericho for a few years at the end of the 90s. One of the best stretches of my life.

    "National Cleavage Day"

    No, the contrast is still there. The beauty in the thread is in contrast to the average of what we see every day. From another perspective, it is very true that constant exposure to anything will tend to desensitize appreciation (or aversion, as the case may be), and a world of only beauties would just shift the bell curve.
