    Scammer in the Classifieds

    The site that explains some of the 'million dollar scams' ... and has hilarious (ok funny for me.... I may just be demented, as I love sailing...) examples of how they scam the scammers... The BBC has one interview with one scambaiter.... I am sorry that some twit attempted to take you in... but be thankful it was not for millions... by a super scammer... that managed to defraud a Brazilian man, Nelson Sakaguchi, a Director at Brazil's Banco Noroeste based in São Paulo,[2] of $242 million, $191 million in cash and the remainder in the form of outstanding interest,[3] between 1995 and 1998.

    Fuck! storm emma destroys holyhead marina

    Stunning losses in millions of pounds: BBC report on damage Local newspaper (dailypost) report on catastrophic failure.....
  3. except the scammers (not the uscg) are taking $75 to do what you can do online for $26..... ( http://www.dco.uscg.mil/Our-Organization/Deputy-for-Operations-Policy-and-Capabilities-DCO-D/National-Vessel-Documentation-Center/ ) and the staff at the uscg documentations service are THE BEST FEDERAL employees... even when there was no fee, they gave exceptional and courteous service. I've dealt with them regarding my boat, as well as others boats.. and USCG is the best... now the scammers (not putting their link here, as it only boosts the google rankings ) are clever twits that send stuff that looks official and makes it easy to make a mistake.....

    Sold everything to sail the world...boat sunk on day 2

    On their go fund me page they claim: so... they have experience doing deliveries.... lucky other boats... and god help the other boaters who had their boat at the boat yard, where they were trading time in the boat yard for work (from slow boat sailing interview)... and LB 15... where is your link... I was going to donate.. but can't find your link? (and you should put in running costs to your gofundme total.. so you can actually sail the sucker....)
  5. A simpler solution is to use the screws into the deck... This chap got it backwards and had to have the first mate help him unscrew after growing tired from the bow work... He was kneeling... and to insure he would not fall of.. screwed himself in.... Dedication that was not rewarded when the owner realised why the decks were leaking.... Now if the decks were 50 cm thick..... this would definitely work...

    London Boat Show.... fail?

    You own a reversed boom? How does that work? Does the clew do something different on a reversed boom? At least the London Boat show had a Bar... from what the editor says, Dusseldorf has boats, but no bar... London had bars, but few boats....

    London Boat Show.... fail?

    you most definitely assume correctly. London England, UK, at the ExCeL Exhibition Centre in London. It is organised by National Boat Shows, which is a subsidiary of the British Marine Federation.

    London Boat Show.... fail?

    I kind of doubt that... as.. all 2 of the bars appeared to be Moet & Chandon Champagne sponsored...

    London Boat Show.... fail?

    I must have mistakenly thought that this was a result of overindulging in Moet & Chandon Champagne and.... an AIE (alcohol induced error) rig set up.
  11. As I was in London on Business... went on Saturday to see the London Boat show... Only one exhibit hall (as opposed to two last year), nothing really great, a disappointment... BUT... the bar sponsored by MOET champagne was the most interesting... It was in the shape of a boat... had a pseudo mast, boom and sail.... but methinks that the people who were assembling the exhibit made a minor error.... by having the inside of the bar backwards... Some photos may make it more understandable...

    Misogyny in sailing?

    If we want to insure help make all feel welcome.. then.. perhaps the rules should be modified: (from http://forums.sailinganarchy.com/index.php?/announcement/22-abbreviated-rules/ ) Abbreviated rules By Zapata 07/28/2017 Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules. Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo. Warning and or timeout for a first offense. PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members. See above for penalties. Caveat: if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods. We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post. We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking. There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious. There is no standard, we will know it when we see it. If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining. Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious. Deal with it. Welcome to anarchy. If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to. They will be explained to you soon enough.

    Misogyny in sailing?

    So.. if topless picts, crude language and other stuff can be left on in favor of free speech.. can we resurrect the deleted thread where jen was commenting? Her comments were interesting... BTW, Free speech is a bummer.. It lets people you do not agree with say their mind.. YET... it allows you and others to show people who are speaking with a closed mind how much bigger the world is, and how ridiculous their perspective is.. or it helps one learn other’s perspective. I am also in favor of free speech. I have experienced first hand true dictatorships and real STASI tactics..... and am grateful for all (imperfect as it is) that the United States of America provides...

    Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    I was suspicious that Jen was posting.. She was using BendingQtips as her moniker... Clean claimed that he did not think it was wise of her. I asked him directly (in the deleted thread) if this was really Jen.. and he CONFIRMED.. The thread got very active with Mr. Slow posting rather quickly (attacking CLEAN) and then... it VANISHED..... so we are none the wiser... And BendingQtips did give some interesting responses..... Ah well.. Time to move on. It was REAL.. it was... not NICE ... (What a train wreck..)

    Atlantic Crossing on a 23' Star Boat

    I know.. that is why I gave the link in the response: http://users.tpg.com.au/kkmiller/hobie/across_atlantic.html (just to be clearer).... Yet they were 'experienced' and claim they would NOT do it again.
