    Oh, they also extended the ban to go into Canada too. Fantastic...

    Bars & Theaters Reopen in Florida Tomorrow

    We also have a very selfish nation that fights wearing a mask or try to social distance better (then pretends they are some kind of freedom fighter). Its very disappointing right now to be an American. Being banned from going to Europe because we cant control an outbreak is really embarrassing.

    I think the entire USA forgot how fast this virus goes from a few dozen infections to several thousand. Its only a matter of time till Florida's retirement villages start seeing some serious issues.

    Phase III Vaccine trial: UAE/Chinese collaboration

    Meanwhile we cannot even get the president to stop trying to slow down testing, and people refuse to wear masks. Despite the insane amount its spread in the last couple of weeks.

    inexperienced couple buy a p.o.s. catamaran

    500,000 views on their first catamaran video to 14,000 on the latest. Maybe if they actually worked on the boat and got it sailing people would watch it.
  6. I was thinking how much fun that looked until i saw the wheel come off the ground. Nope!

    Boat Transport from Fla to RI?

    It's baffling how Florida took this long to start getting hit by the virus hard. If it goes though a few of those big retirement communities its going to be really bad.
  8. Does insurance cover things like this when you start going to foreign countries?

    Greta's back

    The snowflakes get so triggered over a 16 year old girl. Ignore and move on you whiny asses.

    I cant watch the entire video...are they actually going to fix the thing up more, or are they just farting around?
  11. Disbanding the Corona Task Force and patting themselves on the back reminds me of Bush Jr standing underneath the "Mission Accomplished" banner. A war that keeps going to this very day.

    Drywall Sander for Bottoms

    Just a guess here, but that may not have enough power. Drywall is really light to sand so not much pressure is needed.
  13. Without a doubt this thing is going to keep spreading, nearly the entire country has been on lock down for about 3-4 weeks or longer and it is still getting worse.
  14. This is really stupid, if he has been at sea for more than 2 weeks hes probably to safest person to let in your country.
  15. The scary part is how bad is he fucking up behind the scenes? If he is dumb enough to say this shit on TV, what is he saying behind closed doors?
  16. And the coward came out today and said that he wasn't told he had to wear a mask. Your in a hospital with known Corona cases you idiot.

    Looks like I have an entire year to prep the boat now...
  18. Its really too early to tell. Lets see what happens in 3 months. I would imagine most sailboat owners probably aren't hurting as bad as other people YET.

    R2AK 2020

    Looks like they are making an official decision on the 24th of this month. Interesting day because its still about 10 days out till Washington is out of stay at home orders. They also are not accepting anymore applications. Looks to me like its going to be cancelled. As bad as I want to go it is a very stressful time to balance work and trying to get a boat ready for this race. My guess is they are looking at pushing the race back to later this year as a possible option?

    Medical Professionals: A Dissenting Opinion

    The other thing left out is those that get it, become sick, and "recover" will still end up with major lung issues for a long time.

    R2AK 2020

    It also would not be as much being at the event either if zero spectators are allowed and we can't socialize with each other. Half the fun is hanging out in PT, Victoria, and Ketchikan. Also its not exactly safe to know people could have it and not show symptoms until your already on the water and in the middle of nowhere.

    R2AK 2020

    Good Question...I had to look it up in the FAQ. I think at this point they should offer 100% refunds to people that are having difficulty getting things done in time for the race (or hold it till next year). -Cancellations must be received in writing (email ok) 60 days prior to event. We’ll keep 30% to teach you a lesson. -Cancellations made less than 60 days prior to event will not be refunded -If NWMC cancels, 100% of fees will be refunded.

    I have been locked out of my boat for 2 weeks now and likely until the order is lifted in Washington. I had so much work worked to do on it, and now I can't get anything done. Somehow out of all the marinas that are still allowing people to go to their boat, I find the one that is locked down. I understand their position to protect the older people there, but it definitely makes it impossible to get things done. I am looking at moving it to another marina, but not many of them are responding to email's. At this point I really just wish they would cancel and push it to next year. At this point I am increasingly considering backing out until next year so I can save my money in case things get even uglier with the economy. Right now I just want to get back on the water anywhere, much less worry about trying to fit pedaling stations for a race that may not happen.
  24. Went to go work on my boat this morning (Seattle area), and they have a sign that says its closed for everyone except to liveaboards. This seems really ridiculous to me because they are essentially locking me out of my own boat, and i am paying them. This seems really ridiculous to me. I am not going there to have a party and congregate. I simply want to work on my boat with my wife. Anyone else dealing with this? I am not happy right now, because I desperately need the next few months to get ready for the Race to Alaska. This is a very small marina that is rarely occupied.
  25. Interesting it shows a complete drop off around august. Do they really expect it to go down that much? How?
