    What a conveniently positioned steering wheel. This boat is clearly used in places where nothing ever appears to port.

    Oh good gravy! I haven't seen that since I was a boy waaaay back when. They showed the film to us in school, and it made quite the impression on me then. Thank you so much for sharing.

    I admire two things: that someone at one time thought they could do something with this, and that someone is deluded enough to say to themselves "you know what will sell this bad boy? A panoramic shot that really highlights the challenge!"

    I just used Barnaby in November. He was thorough, and unlike many tradesmen I run into today, did what he said he was going to do, when he was supposed to, and at the price quoted. Very thorough.
  5. I remember the Sailfish somewhat fondly. When you're 11 or 12, it's a lot easier to deal with the contortions. And it was easier to right after a capsize than a Sunny.

    When I was a lad in college, my hall mates and I (about 8 of us in total) came across our Resident Advisor's Fiat Spider, parked on the street. "Wouldn't it be funny to move his car?" So the eight of us (it might have been seven, or nine or ten; I believe there was beer involved) literally picked up his car and put it on the sidewalk, wedging it between a parking meter and a concrete garbage can. What fun! Perhaps the Bug in question here suffered a similar fate?

    That takes me back.... When I was about 10, I tried to convince my Mom (the only smoker in the family) to switch to Kool cigarettes. If you had X number of Kool proof of purchase thingies, you could redeem them for a Snark done up in the Kool colors with the Kool logo on the sail. Sweet. Mom refused, and I wound up not buying a boat until I hit my early thirties and bought a Sunfish. Sad but true.

    Mocking Ads on Craigslist I'm not sure what this is.... An ad for storm damaged boats? An offer to let you put your camper on a barge and "homestead" in a mooring field in Key West? Some kind of floating old age home? All three? I don't know if I should sign up or run screaming....

    Not to mention a really ugly website. It looks like it was designed circa 1990.
  10. Unclear to me, as I am not maritime lawyer. And like I said, I'd sure like to know what the damage here is and what Ngomi wants. But the complaint filed by the Sailing Center is not linked to any existing lawsuit (like if Ngomi had filed a suit against Courageous); it was filled on it's own as a separate matter. If the Sailing Center had been sued, this would be a motion within that lawsuit, not a separate complaint on it's own. At least, that's the way this lawyer sees it...
  11. I think your title for this thread is off. The Mega yacht isn't suing the Courageous Center; it's the other way 'round. The Center has filed a complaint seeking a declaration that whatever happened, the limit of their liability is the value of their 420 that struck the megayacht. The Center pegs that value at $1000. And by the way, there was no "collision". It was an "allision". What I thought was a typo in the complaint turns out to be a nautical term I never heard before. Whaddaya know? I'd sure like to know what kind of damage was caused to the Ngoni. It must be something serious enough to cause them to threaten a not-for-profit sufficiently to hire a lawyer. Or maybe the allision just caused someone on the Ngoni to spill the Grey Poupon.

    Craigslist - Not mocking

    I think it would be the first time I really mean it if I said "Cool story bro. Tell it again". Thank you!

    Ooooh, "quality inclusions". Like "custom cradle".

    Bottom line is that there is no way that either VDH or Slats would be disqualified. It would look just soooo bad.
