    Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    I submit this to woodies lovers appreciation. Sorry for some pics size, they came as they were. https://www.bandofboats.com/fr/buy/boat/42878?utm_medium=rtb&utm_source=criteo&utm_campaign=achat For 10.000 euros, you get a -I quote- "half-rebuilt" boat. So, even though the dodger itself is "90% rebuilt", the project misses the 80% complete category by a big margin.

    Britton Chance/Michel Bigoin improbable child is sailing again, after ten years on the ground. We have done quite a lot of work on it already, and there's still loads to do. But we wanted to sail her asap and see what she needed. So far, she's a joy. One of the pics is an intruder. It's the hull after 1 month and a half submerged without antifouling (in the Med). Thought I'd do the experiment and see if spending time and money in that department was worth it, since the boat is out of the water 9 months per year.

    The blight of generators

    This, exactly. That's why I started to see catamarans (charter ones, anyway) as being floating infamies, full of clueless flesh.
  5. Just wait to see what I can do with those and a freezer.
  6. Watch out for the eventual erection.

    Somehow one would think that if Batman was to sell his hardware, he'd be part of the non-mocking topic. But his standards have taken a hit, it seems.
  9. Hey! Just to say: I actually liked your post. But being the jerk I am, I could not resist giving you your 100th downvote. Congrats!

    How I bought my boat

    And just concurring. Snappies, pretty please, good sire! Exactly. Stay in the Med for two seasons at least, if possible starting with the Adriatic. Then go up to more civilised places, mainly UK/Brittany sectors, where you'll feast your eyes on some beautiful landscapes that are spared by mass tourism (thanks Med!) and either insist further north, cautiously as it gets rougher (and mesmerizing, the two seems to go by pair), or head back straight to the canaries and home. Just get in the water asap, and fix non important stuff on the go.

    In the "saling old rotting ruined yacht, neglected and over priced, evidently" (abbreviated as SORRYNOPE) (and yes, that actually took way more time to engineer than what the very relative interest output required), I found this: https://www.annoncesbateau.com/voilier/occasion-annonce-875632.html A clipper 60 from Alfa Yachts shipyard. This one has been sitting in Port Pin Rolland (France) for some years now, and can be yours for the meek sum of 75000 euros. Obviously comes with the classic "needs important restorations on hull, deck, insides, engine, electronics and electricity" note. Does it fit in the mandatory 85%? It's a very interesting boat, with lots of appeal, but come on.
  12. Oh yes she was. I just thought there was no reason for her to stay longer than what it takes to say "hiya, thanks for the lift, where are the taxis, bye". Yet she did. The beard hypnotized her, I'd say. And I very much doubt he got to touch anything during her stay, hilmelf aside.
  13. She fucked him good. Does it count? The sheer amount of creepiness in that beard alone is fascinating. It's the only reason I can think of to explain why she actually stayed and did the shores for a few days before coming back to her senses.

    Abandon Ship!

    I believe that that funky(*) old man made a, errrr, dashing escape from his prosecutors, more than a year ago. (*) it's the polite version of what comes to mind when thinking about someone who " couldn’t see where he was driving because he was sitting down and the dash of his boat was blocking his view ", or who thought that " a lawsuit seemed unnecessary because the people in the Weldcraft weren’t hurt badly."

    I see he's more in multihulls, these days. Word has it that he was a pretty decent pitman. "Trim that leech better, sucker, we're bleeding speed!"
