    Fark, that's cold. We're going to hit 10F Monday morning and I thought that was bad.

    where is webb chiles?

    Webb has little use for people or society. His personal ties are kept to a very bare minimum. It's not like he's an inexperienced young man, the primary bread-winner with a family full of kids, pulling some kind of reckless, social media stunt. Yes, I understand that he's married and she would suffer if he were lost. I think he'll successfully complete his circumnavigation and not leave anyone behind.

    No, they still stink. It's the amine used in the CO2 scrubbers.

    Ah, lack of used options. Sorry for being obtuse.

    Chesapeake 2019

    I also drove submarines...and lived in Wa. State, Bangor. Beautiful place but the constant gray and drizzle made me near suicidal so I went back to the east coast.

    If we get six feet of rain again this year, I'm selling the boat and buying a submarine. Just sayin'.

    An 8HP 4 stroke would be heavy. Search for a used Honda 5hp 4 stroke. I borrowed one for my Coronado 25 a few times and it was perfect.

    What is the risk that she'll overrun her supplies with all of this "parking?"

    port!

    Please don't bring reasonableness and maturity into this discussion. You're just disrupting all the sensationalism, knee-jerking, jumping to conclusions, and lynch mob mentality.

    I like a little patina on the nickel.
  12. @Kris Cringle Next time you're bored and fall down the Youtube wormhole, search "eye in hand sailing." There is no story and very little, if any dialogue. It is nothing more than videos of beautiful, small, hand built, classic boats sailing in beautiful areas of the Chesapeake. I find it very entertaining and soothing during the winter.
  13. I stated the one-trick pony part some time ago. Nice guy, fun, but he just keeps doing the same thing and there's no story. He also works for a living. He wrecked his engine by wrapping a line around the prop. He had to stop, earn money, replace the engine and start sailing again. If anything, I am like him (which is why I don't bother recording anything I do.) I sail, but I do the same shit over and over again, and I have to work a regular cubicle job to fund it. How many times could I show you Chestertown and St. Michael's before you get bored with it? No one wants to watch that.

    Quite right. Someone did a flex study using J/24's a number of years ago. The idea was to determine the service life of a GRP hull as it related to the amount of flexing it endures over its life. Ah- here it is: https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/bb0a/9713dd10f97e61c30efb49e0c90fa017a855.pdf
