    Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    We have the Ugly Boat Admiration Society thread but, I thought a little more focus on the source and a wider focus on boat(y) stuff might entertain. The drawback of this thread is the pictures will eventually go away as the ads die. Here's a piece of gold. Bruce Anchor 15 lbs. - $25 (Gig Harbor) I salvaged this anchor. It's a Bruce style and weighs 15 or 20 lbs. is my guess. Comes with a shot of chain. $25 Anyone need an anchor? It's cheap.

    Hard vs soft dinghy

    I'm all for answering questions. So far the Pudgy has met our needs and served us over 5 years and 1500 nautical miles of sailing. I'm not here to argue about it.

    I like that solution to the deflated WB floats. I'm glad it works for you. It looks pretty clean.

    Our experience aboard Brigadoon differs from your opinion. I won't argue our reasons with a mind so made up.

    Hard vs soft dinghy

    Need a dingy? A mariner near us in PT has a brand new Portland Pudgy for sale. Basic rowboat with oars, bow bumper and boarding ladder. White. Normal price is about $3,500 with a few options and delivered. He wants $2,500. I think that's a deal. It's brand new. Never used. I can pass along contact info. Send it to me at: donn.christianson@gmail.com This is an awesome dinghy. I can speak in detail to it's characteristics.

    Track prepped bike and undies under racing leathers. I assume she's the rider. There is nothing wrong with particular pic. The rest of the story, however...

    Thank you, Bob. I had read that a couple years ago and had forgotten. It's good wisdom in a question: well, what's the good news. Thanks.

    There is an ad, here in Seattle, where someone has been trying to sell a corroded deck plate key for two dollars. It's been runnung for over a year.

    It's easier with sheep. If one jumps, all the rest that follow will jump at the same spot. No. This is your doing.

    Steve did invite us but we couldn't make it. I wish we could have been there. I love DIY forge stuff.

    Not at all - assholes do get called on their assholeiness though. Deservedly so. Are you calling me an asshole? Not yet.

    My newest project

    No, it isn't. I'm surrounded by "uppercalssmen" all the damn time here and, they treat me pretty well. I guess there must be a reason, though for the life of me, I can't tell you what it is. This is decent forum, with decent people. It's not populated by the usual cast of armchair sailors. I learn stuff here from those upperclassmen. I've been to their homes, eaten at their tables, and I was invited every time. And I'm not all that so, it must be how decent they all are. I know bullying. It really doesn't happen here. Welcome, Markus.

    Hey look! My boat! Seriously, it was awesome to share space with Icon. I don't think that Bob is doing himself a favour here. In short he is being mean to a man who in his opinion is troubled. That's about as brave as a 6ft athletic guy hitting a small kid. Not the kind of guy I would like to have on board in tricky conditions, only wimps behave like this. The irony meter goes off scale when he calls others snowflakes. HTFU. Bob is very candid here and shares everything he works on. When some special snowflake attacks him and his work is he supposed to just ignore it? BS has been discredited for every claim he has made by people that know him, now Proa has a cob up his ass and decides to try and work it out here. Not smart and not cool. I have never met Bob but got to know him many years ago on SA and he is the main reason I registered. The FT project was very cool, I also enjoyed Bill Stevens who took tons of shit from posters sometimes because he posted in ALL CAPS. What a bunch of whiny pricks. I think Proa and BS do have a litany of issues and they need to get help and stop masturbating on a public forum and get help. Proa promotes his expertise on his website which is embarassing as a tech guru should have something better than a 1st year HTML site. If I were Bob I would tell them to fuck off and come back when they have something to contribute more than whining about how it's all so unfair. The real world isn't often kind and nobody is going to give you your manpon when you insist on just being a little prick (not directed at you). I am the same person in real life as I am here, witty and humorous to my friends and a big dick to those who aren't. I am certainly not here to make friends or win popularity contest but to learn more and appreciate boat design which Bob graciously shares with all of us. Anyone that doesn't feel that way and chooses to attack Bob will have me doing my best to kick their online butts. If anything isn't perfectly clear don't hesitate to request clarification. edit: or ignore me which is a handy tool that BS and Proa now reside in. In case you haven't noticed, Bob isn't the one being attacked, he keeps attacking people and then pretend to be surprised when somebody reacts. Obviously some are going to reply back, that's life, if you keep stepping on people feet eventually you get in trouble. Oh, good fucking bye already.

    Crazy idea or...I don't know. I could guess at some of the challenges, especially where the tip gaff attaches to the mast.
