    Finally finding a cheap small boat that holds my camping gear and goes faster than the keelboats owned by the smug bastards at the yacht club.
    Currently stuck in the swamp of a well paying job that I can't afford to leave

    Coolboats to admire

    I think as said above, larger portholes would work, and perhaps a cabin about half the height at the back. Looks small enough that it might be a little cramped afterwards though

    Score one more for tiny boats. The fellow they interview talks about adding 10,000 to a repair bill. https://vancouver.craigslist.org/van/boa/d/lacey-martin-30/6840429482.html

    Who sailed today?

    went and checked the lake today... was going to put in, beautiful 15 knot breeze from the south..... turns out a 15 foot fiberglass dinghy can't break through 3 feet of ice

    I loved my Coronado. She may not have been the fastest or best looking boat, but she was definitely was reliable and trucked through some weather that would have had others heading for harbour. And she really does look amazing with the dark green.

    IDK about that fin keel but I love the look of that. Exactly the kinda thing I'm going to go for eventually

    I'm 6'2", and the snow was at my waist, climbing through the snow to clear off Mistral Doesn't look too much different afterwards, but there was a good three feet of snow in there that won't be melting into a massive bathtub now!

    Here's something a bit different, a fellow trying to circumnavigate the world without using any powered vehicles. Tough as nails, found him from a video where he sails one of those little hobie tris along the north shore of superior (through some pretty decent waves too), but he's using a crapload of different types of transportation. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-bqpGT7rVPJ-CEEdFIeTDQ (Channel link <----)

    Has anyone talked about "Sailing Tarka" in this thread yet? I just watched a few videos of theirs, and i'm fairly impressed. I love the fact that they're sailing a 27' boat, something actually in the range of what I'm considering, and the do their own maintenance and have a great attitude in general to sailing.

    I mean, it would be a beautifully restored, hand built planter.

    Oops, too much self-loathing. Here's a $2000 project rowboat: https://vancouver.craigslist.org/rds/boa/d/surrey-13ft-antique-wood-2-man-fishing/6845495834.html Serious offers only guys

    You're not wrong, but you might have missed the other part that says "currently stuck in the swamp of a well paying job I can't afford to leave". The boat being about 3000 km away isn't helping matters either. It's okay though, having a well paying job and a little apartment will totally make me happier in the long run, even if it means I miss out on all my dreams.... right? right?!??

    aren't we supposed to be mocking boats here? Mocking other Anarchists is not nearly as much fun. How about the rapid decline in this shark 24's condition? It's rather sad https://vancouver.craigslist.org/van/boa/d/vancouver-shark-24/6843059008.html

    Life aboard a sub-20' Sailboat

    Well that's lovely. More googling indicates that it's super shallow, which contributes to both the algae and some really nasty conditions.
