    Oh, I dunno. If the rudder and swing keel-daggerboard are intact what a fun lake boat for the grandkids.

    OK, Who talked about fight club?

    I was reading that story yesterday. Made my blood boil.
  8. Not just the Germans. The Noorhovians Scandinavians have not come out of the electronic dark ages either. The Wallas diesel cooktop on my boat is slow to heat but very efficient so the slowness is forgiven by me, not so much my wife. The motherboard is another matter. It is huge!!! Complicated!!! Unforgiving!!! It apparently does not want to run your battery down (?) as it's voltage demands are unreasonably high. Pray you don't have to service it. It is the only electric device on the boat that requires more than occasional maintenance of electrical connections. Tight, clean, dielectric greased connections be damned. I got some NO-OX-ID special electrical contact grease to see if that helps. takes breath

    Looks to be the starboard engine that took off. Is that what you see?
  10. Even better was when a moron such as myself would rent one and put 50 psi in the spare tire so as to not run out of enough air to clean the windshield again. The plumbing in the steering column could not stand that much pressure and dumped all the contents of the large washer bottle into the drivers footbox!

    What's the worst word you can call someone

    "What's the worst word you can call someone" cunt When I signed up to the wooden boat forum I was asking how to rig traditional four corner sails. A specific question was how to rig a snotter with a cunt splice. One of the sjws' was apoplectic that I used a word he had hoped to never hear again in his idealized life. It was vulgar only because he chose to make it so. nigger It wasn't till the last year that I found out what the term BN that many sailors used ment. I'm so naive I assumed it was boat nanny.

    The bridge crew must love those sight lines.
  15. The oil drain on my new rototiller. I could pound this keyboard for an hour describing how poorly designed it is. Oh, and to the moron that put the oil in when new. It takes just over two cups, not almost two quarts!
