    Looking at Euro Swans

    Looking at some Euro Swans. 47, 53, 59(likely late 1990's to mid 2000s vintage - ex the 47) in particular. I am wondering about a few things before I get really going, so I thought I'd check the collective wisdom here as a starting point. Some question: How to change flags from Euro country to USCG documentation. Taxes due if I exit EU? How long to get out of EU once I change flags. Do the Euro Swans (late 90's - 2000's) have dual electrical capability (120/240/120/240)? Any other Euro exit to US issues? I'm asking as I am expanding my search radius. Thanks!
  2. OK, I should probably ask my ~30 year old daughter, but I don't want tossed stoopid. We'll be traveling from US to St. Maarten/Martin. US based Verizon is crazy expensive ($70/mo for 100 minutes, 100 texts, 500 Mb data). I thinks that daughter said I could get a SIMM card for my unlocked iPhone 6 and it would be cheaper. Here is what I want: ability to have enough data to use WAZE or google maps to get where I need. Whole family is traveling, so maybe texts/pics back to friends. Enough minutes to deal with airlines/rental cars. That's it. I don't care what my call says my number is.

    Question's surround Kavanaugh's accuser

    Trigger warning..... Avert your eyes dear snowflakes... "I believe Juanita" You won't understand what that means, nor the context. Unless: A) you google it, and b] Google hasn't censored it. You were warned. If you are still vertical, Check out James Carville's respect for women (woman?) with his quote "If you drag a Hundred-Dollar Bill [sic] through a trailer park, you never know what you will find." Yup. Champions of the fairer sex. "You Better put some ice on that, Juanita". - wait!?! That quote doesn't google any more.

    Vitamix 750 Blender

    skipped to the bottom of the thread...sorry if someone else got here first. Wife bought a VM0103 (looks like what they make margaritas 24/4 in a bar) refurbished on the internet. First one was A-OK. in fact amazing - evinrude foe blending. Crapped out. Sent it back. Replacement has been doin great for at least 5 years. Price? ~$250. Well worth the price in "Hamilton Beach" years. 5 bones new? Probably worth it.

    Two thoughts: A) put the pic in the LONQR thread; b) ask if this is a regular practice in muslim countries C) ask why the fuck does B followed by a right parentheses always default to a happy face. Just axin.

    Were masts on classic cruisers too short?

    A lot of boats from that era had hulls several feet longer than the spar builder specified. Hence the dilema.
