  1. Just out of curiosity, how many gallons of water do you pump out of the FH per day?
  2. Exactly what do YOU have?Both... Yachtmasters is accepted worldwide... WE ARE NOT WORTHY!

  4. No one here has ever said you are afraid of hard work. Unfortunately hard work alone ain't enough for what you're trying to do but it's about all you brought to the table. All those other factors like good design, proper materials, proper construction methods etc. were left on the cutting room floor.

    Yeah - you'd make the same kind of counellor as Lee Ermey. "Crybaby!"

  7. Looking at thousands of boats wasn't enough?

    I attended school in England from age 9 to 11. 5 of us got caught smoking in the can and were hauled to the headmasters study. He lined us up with me at one end and started down the line, caning each one with 6 across the palms. As he finished each one, the kid was sent back to class. When it came to my turn, as you can imagine after watching 4 of my friends get it, I was just shitting. He just glared at me and let me go.

    We need a club for young guys. Hickory, about 15 pounds, 30" long, with a shot of lead in the business end. I'll buy one. Changing the law to forbid beating kids was one of the worst changes society ever made - just look at how these young assholes turned out. I WAS joking.

    Coolboats to admire

    Could you build a "sandbagger" looking boat with a deep bulb keel? I don't see why not and it would be major cool. I agree with SailAR & Bob - contemporary underwater and old above makes the best kind of boat.
  14. am I the only one seeing an image of buddha there? or is it another holy figure? I'm pretty sure it's Elvis. I think that's Lilmurray. All the screeching & creaking noises that were reported were him.

    Looking at the deck of that mess I cringe to think of what the "rebuilt" interior looks like.

    Wasn't that "Swampfire"? I loved Mull's IOR boats with those extreme sterns - Swampfire, Hot Flash (1/2 Ton by Gougeons), Gonnagitcha (Two Ton by Nawlin's Marine). The side crew pits were not a good idea IMO.
  17. Building it so you can see where you're going can really make a difference on a cat this size Of course, when the "designer" didn't even know it needed rudders, that's bit much to ask ain't it FB- Doug He can just put a couple of hydraulic seats behind the wheels and steer with his feet while looking over the top.

    I remember back in the 70's when "distressed" furniture was all the rage in high end furniture stores. Now it's being done in sailboats.
  19. How could a master carpenter have fucked up those aft stairs so badly? You can see how bad they are from a fucking AIRPLANE.

    Must be served with HP sauce. Only the original will do. Totally. As to the "original" comment - there ARE no substitutes.

    So you can say "mines bigger than yours". That's all those ridiculous things are about.
  22. Details please. At the age of 52, I'm having a little trouble figuring out which war HR would have served in. First Gulf War? Have to be - too young for Nam.
  23. Since you should properly be on Raft Anarchy or Barge Anarchy, you might be right.
