    Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    The ad is for some boat stands but look at what else this guy has stashed! https://capecod.craigslist.org/bpo/d/boat-stands-5-jack-stands/6674039325.html

    Did that really get printed on the cover of a pictorial calendar for Sidney BC or did the seller Photshop that? If that's for real then I don't know what to say... except HA HA!

    "Mast clearance is 22 m, and a special system is employed to allow unobstructed airflow to the main sail to increase the efficiency of the main sail." I must be blind, I'm not seeing it. Can somebody with more knowledge here point it out to me? Sheeting the jib directly to the mast and boom is novel. The jib looks to be only semi flexible, which seems to allow you to set it like a square rigged sail. Any idea what it's made from?

    Yeah, I guess it's the sort of thing that either burns an indelible image of disgust into your psyche or you subconsciously banish it to the darkest corner of your mind.

    Sloopy, your memory is slipping. That one was brought to our attention here: And you were the first to comment on it here: Although at that time it did appear that he had dockage which is no longer the case.

    You don't kick it, you use one of these funny looking oars.

    Damn. I thought he said whores! I had to ask. He doesn't know what kind of wood they are made from.

    Uglyboat Admiration Society Hang Out

    Must be something in the atmosphere or the wine that causes a weird spherical aberration when photographing boats in France. Or the effects of some unknown gravitational hydrostatic mass deformation phenomena that causes boats to display strangely exaggerated curvature to the sheer line at the forward quarter. Note the boat pictured above and the two photos of the exact same boat below. The only difference being the photo on the right was taken in France. Even Perry won't be able to debunk this conspiracy theory.

    Something's wrong with this picture

    About 4000 lbs. of that lead came from the Allied Seabreeze that I cut up. We loaded it onto a U-Haul pickup and trailer using what they brought and what I had on hand. Steve (guy with beard) kind of scared me with a couple of times. He guides mountain or rock climbs and used carabiners and climbing knots which I had no idea whether they were up to the task. There was one mishap but everybody lived. Now that I look at the video I think he used the same purchase set-up and shame on me for not realizing it but it was moving the chunks of lead alright. When I was that age I was probably even more dangerous. I guess that climbing tall things can kill you quick if you don't have some self preservation instincts. Compared to a lot of younger guys they have a pretty amazing skill set. They really are starting from scratch on this boat. At least I give them credit for having the sense to build a proven design (Atkin Ingrid) using appropriate materials and not an origami doodle or home center lumber. I hope they can pull off this build.

    "Nice" must stand for something else, just like "Fine" does sometimes. As in,

    Found the Worst Boat Ever?

    Whoever made this also made an economy car at one time. A car with a sticker price of one hundred seventy nine dollars!

    What's that peg boardy stuff on the settee? That really make the whole boat look crappy. And what's that smooshed marshmallow thing? For that matter WTF is 99% of this thing made out of? The only identifiable thing in the photo is the tupperware container lid and I don't see what it's purpose is.

    So, this qualifies as excitement around here nowadays...

    Agreed. It was just some temp lettering to see if I liked it. I mean really temp. Anyone know who we're at war with now?

    Bull, Snaggy, meet Abigail. So named by my son Tyler. He posted this video after this her last Christmas with us. She was 16 years old. Tyler died a little over a year later at age 26. Tyler had a special affection for Abbey unlike he had for any other creature or human. And Snags, I thought that's what I said. Or don't you understand fuckin' English? Oh, uh, wait... check that, maybe not so well. Apologies, I meant "commentaires s'il vous plait. i welle hauve a localle sine artiste preforme thee finale applique de lettres."
