    Where to move?

    You may have a point.

    A big project!

    I think I remember that some wooden boats were built with galvanized iron floors that lasted for many decades.

    Yes, that was beautiful.

    Amazing what one man with a come-along can accomplish. This guy is astonishing. And BTW, has anyone sailed a Star boat? I always found them intimidating, with their tiny cockpit and low boom. Must be fast though.

    My question: How would this compare to the way the boat was built originally in 1910? Seems like this build is much more precise, careful and exact than the original, and employs more workers than they did in the old days.

    Greta Rides Again?

    Changing the subject, the latest information is that global emissions have reached an all time high and are not heading lower. I believe the UN says we need to reduce emissions by 7.5% a year for the next decade at least to make an impact on global warming. Guess what? That's not going to happen no matter what Greta says. This process has been in the making for 200 years and the best we can do is to adapt. Try not to freeze, drown or burn to a crisp. And if you want to see the "autism spectrum" in action, check out Barron Trump. That kid is way fucked up, just like his dad.

    Sailing from LA to SF, Solo w/ Little Experience

    Glad to see you are too young to drown happily. Going to write a book about it?

    What gun should I have on my boat?

    Sorry all you climate nuts but it's here and there's absolutely nothing to be done about it. Just try not to drown or be burned to a crisp.

    What gun should I have on my boat?

    Those machine guns mounted under the drones remind me of the ones we had mounted on the roof racks in Rhodesia 1978-9. Pull a cord inside the car and they swiveled right to left while laying down some lead. Very effective when driving through the bush.

    Good place to start, but I would want an AK-47 or AR15 and enough ammo to trim the ballast.
