    Home Depot? Just lost my Bizz

    Ok, here's where you are mistaken. 1. The Pro desk is for just that. Very few cash transactions, most sales in the thousands. "A" kitchen worth of appliances? Cute, go to the register. 2. An employee offered to assist you? He probably thought you were a day laborer or contractor waiting on someone picking up a last minute items to add to his order. Maybe a vendor. It's often where they are half way through check out and a contractor, forgot something, or was told a line of credit or credit card was maxed, etc., which leads to seemingly empty lines but people scrambling to get it cleared up to check out to get back to work while the order is still open. 3. You went out of your way to use the contractor desk when you had several other options. Let the Pros work with the Pros and use the other several options available for you. Show up at the desk at 8 am on a Wednesday when the weather is nice and you'll be taking your life in your hands with your $4.00 trinket. Contractors paying out by the hour have no sense of humor for that. Just an observation from someone who worked with the Pro Desk in the past.

    Where’s the Cone?

    Discovery 20

    Congrats on the purchase. You WILL have fun, albeit, wet fun. My T-Gull23 used lower shrouds for mast raising while the boat was still folded. It work, but I always felt a bit rushed to get the amas folded out and main shrouds loaded. Probably unjustified.

    Discovery 20

    Mine lived the summers on a mooring so I set up and broke down once each a year. Reality, it is not a trailer sailor. I tried the amas up trailering position once. It was at best and to be polite, a fucking horror show. A realistic time with at least one other friend is 4 hours soup to nuts. Can it be done quicker, sure but as I said, one time in and one time out, so full breakdown or set up. The gentleman who bought it from me engineered the trailer to allow the boat to be assembled by one person. I don't remember the details but remembering how clever I thought it was. If you sail it on and off a mooring, it is a very easy and enjoyable boat to own. It had an asymmetrical chute which was tacked to the bow. It worked well. I didn't get around to adding a sprit but that would have been ideal.

  10. Dude, get your soul back. Seriously, mariners have existed 90% based on a man's dreams. These guys rode out that dream much longer than most. They left us with what would be a museum piece if it could fit on a wall. I think the owners hit a point where they had that deep, dark conversation where they realize they've spent everything. I hope someone picks this up with the ability to fund it and have fun with it. It's a legendary craft. Without dreams and craziness li,e this, we would all aspire to sail 1977 j24s and the sport would have died in 1979...Here's the THING Momp: They DIDN'T have that Deep, dark conversation with the guy they stuck with their very large boat - you know, the guy that runs a BUSINESS, not a museum. I'm at least as much a fan of craziness as the next guy, I just don't think I have the right to stick someone else with the tab for my dreams. - What do you think the reception the NEXT big Tri is going to have when they ask for a little bit of courtesy there ? Here's the point. I was focused on the boat and its future. Not some business owner's issues.. There are laws in place for this type of event, right? If the right thing to do is sell it off, do it at a profit if possible. Just a shame it's this boat and not some 4ksb.
  11. Yes Shark, way to interpret. Same skill as my ex wife...... Impressive......

    Any rules about articulating foils? Say, at the bend employ a servo to adjust the angles of the wing section of the foil from say up tip to right angle, etc?

    Is this not an upwind speed and therefore quicker then the AC72? If it's foiling, it's sailing upwind....
