    Uglyboat Admiration Society Hang Out

    What if they really are brake lights? Do they come on when, say, you let go of the sheets? This could be the cutting edge of the future of sailing.

    Has anyone actually ever used bolt cutters to cut a bolt? Around here, they are referred to as "master key". (Sorry for the drift - you do have excellent taste in boats Mr B and appreciate you sharing your tales here. I always learn something....)

    I with the bowman on this one. So we all agree it's great. But what the heck is it about? The Jesus-people have grabbed onto it like it is some kind of Christian hymn. But since it was written by a gay Buddhist (the Jesus-people won't want to hear that), I don't think that was the intention.

    Best slippers?

    "Klompen" is the Dutch word for wooden shoes.

    I admire the rat guards. I haven't seen those since I sailed on the big grey boats. But maybe they keep the rats from escaping? I also admire the Honda 20. Those are very nice engines. Very reliable. Is there a cannon behind that plate on the bow? If so, I admire any boat equipped with a cannon.

    Catalina 525 Announced

    I think people who like that sort of thing will like that sort of thing. And I wish them every happiness.

    Dehumidifiers & Air Handlers in humid environments

    While I claim zero experience with your situation, I do have a tiny bit of HVAC experience. The usual way to control humidity is to cool air to remove the moisture (to achieve the desired humidity) then re-heat the air to the desired temperature. Using A/C to control humidity when the ambient temperature is near where you want is counter-productive. You do need some type of de-humidifier. Mold is your enemy. Keeping the humidity down and good air circulation will reduce the likelihood of a mold problem. Fixing a mold problem will cost a lot more than what you spend to control humidity.

    THIS so true

    So I live in a medium sized city and I ride my bike most places. I also cycle for fun, fitness and travel. And I rarely eat meat. Why the hate?
  11. OK, every time I hear "Rolling Stones" I think of that little twerp Mick Jagger prancing around in his too-tight pants singing "I'm so hot for her but she's so cold". Ick. No one mentioned Fleetwood Mac? How such discord (dis-chord?) amongst the band created such great songs of Rumors? Or maybe that was just me in high school.

    Best Lyrics Ever

    Afraid of change. Afraid of staying the same.
  13. So far as I can tell, the only people who still use faxes are government agencies and physicians. Aren't they the most trustworthy people to deal with? I think asking for a fax number shows this guy can be trusted!

    Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    I admire a huge wood-fired cook stove in a Florida boat. So if you want eggs for breakfast in the morning, the temperature inside the boat will be nuclear-reactor-heading-for-the-sun hot. I admire anyone that can survive temperatures like that.
