    Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    It's rare to have a new build to mock, but possibly coming to an ocean near you.... "Hulls are only 130 cm wide, allowing excellent hydrodynamic properties and with an exceptionally aerodynamic shape of the whole catamaran hull, lifting keel and a low total weight of 13.2 tonnes (unloaded), enables the "Eco Catamaran" to achieve significantly higher speeds than competitive catamarans. "

    Another Interesting Home Built Steel Boat

    I'm impressed by the "storage for long things". Such detailed planning is great to see. I must have missed the episode when he told us where the engine was going, cos it doesn't look obvious at this stage..

    That's kinda cute, although I think it is a planing powerboat hull by the lack of keel spring in the aft sections.

    Mocking Ads on Craigslist Interesting to note that photographer was too frightened to even wind down window of his vehicle, let alone get out to photograph this thing. Will "swap for something of interest". A pet rock , perhaps?

    Bavaria's approx 10 years old?

    I have three friends with Bavarias. One boat is 2002 vintage, one is 2005 and one is 2016. The build quality of the 2002 boat is the best. Portlight surrounds are solid timber and all the veneers match. The 2005 boat has plastic portlight surrounds with vinyl woodgrain covering. Also the the veneers run all over the place - Bulkhead veneers grain is vertical, cupboard grains run horizontally - looks awful. The 2016 boat is a POS. Floorboards creak, veneers are thin and cheap. In short, the older boat are the best built. However all your plumbing , wiring, pumps etc are going to be that much older....If you get an older boat, buy one that has just had a full refit....

    Interesting new DIY Catamaran build

    Still not sure how those outboard legs will react to the heavy copper coating.. Methinks it won't end well.

    Scary shit. Who the fuck did you cunts vote in?? President Trump has surrounded himself with outspoken believers who share an end-times theology. Vice-President Mike Pence is a stoic evangelical. He makes no secret that he devoutly believes that war in the Middle East is God’s will. That God wants Israel returned to the Jews. That Armageddon is part of God’s plan. Pence openly maintains ties with Christian Zionist organisations that see this as a desirable fulfilment of biblical prophecy. His own speeches regularly repeat such imagery, with statements such as “a prophecy literally came to pass” with the establishment of Israel in 1948. “When we open the American embassy in Jerusalem, we will in a very real sense end this historic friction, we’ll embrace reality,” Pence said in an interview with the Christian Broadcast Network. Naturally many among Netanyahu’s powerbase see the prophetic context of it all very differently to Trump’s evangelicals. But they’re happy to go along for the ride, so long as it suits their own agenda.
