    I have an Elvstrom fireball boom in my garage!

    2019 Fishing Thread

    We only keep a couple of the medium sized ones to eat. Anything over 15 inches is put back after getting a picture taken. We have some reds in the pond and when they hit a bass lure it is a long chase to save the bait and fishing line!

    Carfax / Autocheck - anyone need one?

    Listed a Ford van last month and received several responses requesting vehicle reports. This was on a 24 year old vehicle with 400,000 miles with an asking price of 1000. Had another one insisting that I take a cashiers check that would include money to pay for someone to tow it away. I got rid of that one by requesting a photo copy of drivers license along with the check. One of the report guys cussed me for refusing to run the report. Did sell for cash to a real person after all the scam callers gave up.

    Greta Rides Again?

    Gee, every 14 days higher than normal tides. New moon and full moon tides ring a bell? I have lived here my whole life of 70 years and these are normal events. Charleston floods when it rains and it is worse if that happens to be at high tide. Oh, and the beaches have been washing away as well.

    Fucking parasites

    slightly off topic. I was an unpaid (by choice) BN for an out of town couple for many years. They covered expenses for the boat and if I delivered it somewhere covered my travel costs. I had use of it when available. Many years later when they no longer sailed or owned a boat I was in a tight spot and out of the blue I got a large check from them with a note thanking me for everything and that they did not expect to be repaid.

    Home Energy Stabilization?

    Excess carbon is removed? From where is it removed and where is it stored after being removed? If it sounds too good to be true it usually isn't.

    Cursing like a sailor

    I can remember when everything and everyone started with an F word on a boat. Thirty years later and I still use the F word too F_____ing much!

    How do you stop a British Seagull?

    Still have one in the garage. Just can't bring myself to toss it out. Also still have the Zodiac that it pushed. Mid 70's used it on several cruises in the old Pearson 300.

    living in a lighthouse

    Long time ago (30 years at least) I spent a week in the Haig Point Light House across the sound from Hilton Head. Creepy place late at night in a thunderstorm. I would love to see pictures of some of them under construction.
  13. When I answer one that turns out to be a robo call I hold my phone up inside a big brass ships bell hanging by my desk and give them a real RING TONE!

    Autonomous ships--good, bad, or we don't know yet?

    Just look at the major shipping related incidents that occurred world wide during January and imagine how they would have played out with unmanned ships.
