    Craigslist Boat-Just because you can doesn't mean you should

    Calling Squeaky and Gomer, we have your boat, no unreasonable offer refused. Maybe you can trade KaKaw for partial payment.

    Thinking about living aboard-what to get?

    Our fearless leader seems to be able to, oh, maybe just brain dead and the carcass is waiting to fall.

    Thinking about living aboard-what to get?

    When asked if I still raced a few years ago my former wife said "not unless he can see another boat", can't turn off the trimmer, tactician mind. Teach a lot of unsuspecting sailors sailing lessons that I am sure they have no idea that I am crushing them.

    Yeah, what do we all look like compared to a few years ago, my guess is french toast girl has aged pretty well.

    Mo Bettah Too

    Alrighty Then Sloop, great to see progress. We are crying in our rums down here that we can't come north, went for a lovely sail today w/ my child, may sail to Tacoma from the Juans for a Dr. appt. she has in a couple of weeks. I look forward to seeing you on the water one of these years if we live through these strange days. Your work looks impeccable.

    Tie a bucket to the end of a halyard and run it through a snatch block at the rail, throttle her up or be sailing a a good clip, climb in the chair and throw the bucket over the side, up you go, just be sure to hold on when you get to the top incase the bucket jumps out of the water when your halyard two blocks at the top. Definitely a Darwin Award winning method.

    I would just go sailing while living aboard, 3+ weekends a year while working. You just pick the stuff up off the cabin sole and store it better next time. Situational awareness is big help and for fucking get going to mom's to do your laundry.

    That's a trailer sailer!

    They need the trailer to get the "f" out of North Dakota. Them's dangerous road miles for a sailor boy.

    Guests realistic expectations

    Used to say my Cal 2-46 fed and cocktailed 10, slept 2.

    Lived and cruised on my Cal 2-46 for years, year around, showered aboard etc. Cut the ties I say and go for it. The live aboard community is great too, independent self sufficient mostly.

    Night Runner is on the market

    I think I was aboard and I don't remember having to swim ashore or bail furiously. The offset hatch has jumped the shark. (full disclosure, my hatch is slightly offset and so far so good as my mother used to say).

    Night Runner is on the market

    FFS! Night Runner has 10's of thousands of miles under her keel and apparently without a catastrophic hatch problem an obviously still afloat! Ditto the Valiant 40's, cruising hall of famers.
