    Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    Another good strategy: When selling a dubious boat, arrange for a cute puppy to photobomb every shot! "Many working parts!" "The deed burnt in the fire..." Wait, what fire?

    Brilliant farm clean-up strategy! Any random piece of junk can be monetized by selling it on CL as an anchor! Extra points of you can come up with some reason why it's superior for some specialized conditions - and therefore worth more, of course!

    Obtaining paper charts

    FWIW, I've been happy with purchases from frugalnavigator.com. Sounds like they might be a little less expensive than some sources cited above. https://frugalnavigator.com

    Dunno... the price might be right. I could maybe clean that mess up for $170K. Oh wait... nah, I'd need it in US bucks for that job.

    25 years living/cruising a 27'er

    I followed their blog for a while, but there haven't really been any updates in the last few years. That often seems to happen when I start following somebody. Maybe I'm poison... Oops - new one this fall!

    When offered the Vaccine, will you take it?

    Dunno... in my state you can just pull up the county-by-county GIS browser and get the mailing address that the tax bill goes to for every parcel. Amongst other data. Farmers of a certain persuasion love putting signs on big pieces of equipment - no land-use planning issues. National Childhood Vaccine Indemnity Act of 1986 provides indemnity for vaccine manufacturers AND a trust fund to compensate the small number of people who actually suffer harm from vaccines.

    Trump faking it?

    Back in April, "mild symptoms" meant anything not requiring a ventilator.

    Trump faking it?

    Not being able to trust anything out of the white house sure puts a shine on the old tinfoil hat! I like the "hiding from the election/waiting for Pence pardon" angle. Might actually hold water if it turns out that they've been polling hypothetical Pence/Biden race.

    Craigslist - Not mocking

    Seven roller furlers, no booms... Ought to be 7 halyards, 7 furling lines, 14 sheets, no?

    Interior shots seem a bit spartan for $3.8M. But they want $7.5M for their motorsailor, which seems to have no mast. And their mega-catamaran seems to have that "50% completed" look. But hey, I'll bet they could finish it up for $11.3M!

    The Thornton Yachts link only hooks up to an add for the 83-foot version, though they are asking considerably more than $1 Looks to be the same boat to me, but without the models... "Thornton Yachts Inc. based in Newport Beach with various yard in southern California has a long history dating back to Lancer Yacht Corporation, based in Irvine California. The company abandoned smaller cruising yachts and now makes only luxury cruising, super, and mega yachts."

    I have a decal just like that on the mast, only it's dated 1997, I think. The problem is that I see that and for some reason have this feeling that 1997 was only about two years ago, so it's not that bad...

    Dunno... I have a few white oaks that have grown up in somewhat dense (sunlight limited) woods. They are very tall and straight, as opposed to the usual branching mode. I always feel as if they should be good for something special.

    Escape summer heat

    Turns out that setting the whole forest on fire also shuts off the summer, like a switch. Forecast temperatures were around 90 but under the smoke, were more in the 60 range.
