    Craigslist - Not mocking

    I thought this might be a good idea, to post boats that seem like really good value posted on local sites. Figured it would be easier to keep track than mash it into the Mocking thread. I hope people will post legitimate finds and not try and use this as a sales tool for your own rubbish. I just saw this listed, looks like a good boat at a good price. http://www.usedvictoria.com/classified-ad/ESTATE-SALE--1981-CC-34-with-62-head-room_29378719 C&C 34, $22k CAD New forum won't let me post a link to a picture, WTF? I'll save it and upload it.
  2. Wilbur Ross announced that tariffs on steel and aluminum will be imposed on Canada, Mexico, and the EU as of midnight. Way to treat your allies, Drumpf. The idiot in the White House has apparently also vowed to rid the USA of German cars. This is not going to end well for anybody.

    MAGA trade tarrifs a two way street

    Doubling down on stupid. Trump and his entire cabinet needs to be hit with a meteorite storm.

    Trump to impose 200B in tariffs on China

    What a fucking idiot. A fractal idiot. An idiot's idiot.
  5. He has the Nether Regions waxed by a Muslim woman that he keeps chained up in the basement.

    Lost something overboard? He's back on track now.

    Just what *is* our (USA) foreign policy?

    I'll have whatever you're drinking or smoking. It looks pleasant, in a Soylent Green sort of way. I'm sure Amati would join us for a hoot.

    Melania emerges after presumed beating

    Yeah, what's the point of being able to smite and not do it?

    That's devotion. It's a fun story once you figure out who you can ignore.

    Show your boat sailing thread

    Wherever it needs to be. Different reaching angles call for different lead positions. I'd probably move it back from where you have it, but I don't know your boat. Watch your telltales, you'll know when it's right.

    Should Trump Be Treated As Hillary Was? Equally?

    Why do his whistles smell like farts?

    @a pretty face

    Goodbye.
  13. You could put a hedge on top, it's not going to be a really tall wall, maybe two or three feet. Every province could have a different theme, using local stone and making a real tourist attraction out of it. We could stand on our side of it and taunt the neighbours. Unfortunately, the neighbours have guns.

    Manafort. Do not pass Go direct to jail.

    Especially if he spits it all over Vlad's favourite blue frock.

    Healthful Lime Smoothy!

    By the time they get there he'll be able to ooze through the net. They need a 50-gallon drum.
  17. I heard that surveillance footage showed them leaving the dock area with extremely large backpacks.

    This is the shallow end of the pool. You should check out the Hot Rod catamaran thread for over-the-top weirdness.

    Just another Art Festival shooting

    Are you also running a child sex slave ring out of the basement?

    I wonder if there is enough political will to redo the referendum. I also wonder how Nigel Farage is still out of jail.

    Haro Strait - current tips?

    Interesting. My Canadian current atlas shows a much milder ebb, but it does agree that there might be a countercurrent along San Juan Island. OpenCPN produces this result halfway between Henry Island and Kelp Reef. With a cruising speed of 5 knots it could seriously impede your progress. I'd go with my original suggestion, run up San Juan island and cross over south of Kelp Reef. Watch out for lumber in the water along San Juan, when we did that route there was a metric shitload of big logs caught in the back-eddies.
