    De Niro got a leasehold on Barbuda for a resort property, and he lobbied the government to make it freehold so his group can make an investment in it with less risk. Nothing wrong with that. The problem is Barbuda is apparently ruled by a group of people on another island with no connection to their interests and also corrupt. I hate to see yet another Caribbean island taken over by resorts, as if here weren't enough of them.

    The Yacht Club - Do you get value from your dues?

    yes, those "yearly" dues look more like monthly dues numbers.

    Chiles vs Hancock on what is an "Open Boat"

    yes that's what i meant, since corrected. So you didnt answer the question was the Shackleton expeditions famous "open boat voyage" done in an open boat or not?

    what if you took an open boat and stretched a canvas across the gunwales? . .
  12. I can see both sides here. Seems to me any boat where you are exposed to the elements without shelter is an 'open boat". Though the advantage of having a dinghy with a deck is you dont have to do nearly as much bailing, if any, so it's a big advantage. If having a deck makes something not an open boat though, then every 20ft center console fishing boat does not qualify as one.

    Zatara has traded in their 55ft Bene for a 58 ft cat, more room to store their Keurig K-cups and Christmas trees and machine guns: Also, YouTube has started putting the Subscription tab in non-chronological order so that'll be fun.
