    BUC Valu

    I find it only takes a while checking CL, "Used XXX", Kijiji and local brokerage listings to get an idea of current values - or asking prices anyway. After that it depends on the specific boat's condition, equipment etc. A few years ago I had access to Soldboats for a while - that was useful since at that time there was a very wide span between ask & actual prices.

    No Deal Brexit

    If one doesn't understand the Brexit situation they have only to look at one of it's leaders - Rees-Mogg - and they will know which side to be on.

    A biscuit jointer separates the two halves of Oreos. A biscuit joiner sticks them back together once the goo has been laid on one half.

    Craigslist - Not mocking

    Love the lightening holes. They look cool and improve ventilation but I wonder how much actual weight they saved?
  6. Isn't that the stuff that deck chair cushions are upholstered with?
  7. I think they were sent there at gunpoint.
  8. That's what education is supposed to be for. An Englishman - I forget who - once said the the principal purpose of a good education is to teach you to recognize when the other fellow is talking rot.

    But they are the significant ones. If you want you can add, resentment, ignorance, gullibility, apathy, fantasies, hatred.........
  10. I'm going with very little education and not very well read. Big Rush fan (poster on the wall)? And I'm not referring to Neil Peart et. al. Fixed.

    Something like 65% of your prison population is there for drug "crimes". 20 years for a woman who's husband sold weed out of the house - yeah, that's an intelligent response to crime. You should know that weed smokers do not want to rape & kill.
  12. Me too. So much for the ruination part. Now Fox - there's a problem that puts video games to shame.
  13. Because they ARE muddle-headed step children from another planet. Listening to that trash is purely voluntary.

    Peace in Korea. Nobel prize for Trump.

    No shit - Rocket man has a whole country - Trump could't even gain entree to Manhattan Real Estate Developer Society.

    No Deal Brexit

    They don't need it - they've had all the money and all the land for centuries. They're WAY ahead of the USA on wealth concentration.

    It seems you didn't learn shit during all that time. And you are still living on assumptions and projections of what other people think and know. Why am I not surprised? Quite a lot of the USA still supports Trump too - the same segment of society that supports Brexit - the resentful losers and ignoramuses. Many places are living in an Idiocracy right now - and you are one of the leaders of the cheering section. Oh, and by the way - I lived there the first time during MacMillan and the Common Market battles with de Gaulle so I know a little bit about the mentality there.
  18. Maybe you don't intentionally lie, but you continually double and triple-down on poorly-researched or expressed arguments. Heaps of us on this forum have extended disagreements which last for pages. Very few of us have the constant shitstorms you seem to attract. I don't think the Joke is a liar. I think he's a moron who truly believes the ignorant shit he posts.

    Ocasio

    A huge number of very reasonable, good people voted for him and wixll do so again. A lie that demonstrates the ignorance and stupidity of the Trump supporters. The people who voted for him were not very reasonable, good people, they were the lowest levels of American society who let their basest instincts be whipped into a frenzy by lies and distortions and hatred and ignorance. Trump was THE worst possible candidate so attempting to blame his election on others not putting a better candidate forward is either a blatant lie or stupidity on a galactic scale. ANYONE was a better candidate than Trump. Sessions would have been a better candidate than Trump FFS.

    It's interesting - and was predicted way back - that pretty well none of the right wingers here support Trump - they didn't like him or vote for him either. But everyone else is worse.

    I thought Soreass was the architect and the Mutt was a rocket surgeon of some sort?
  22. I like the way you buried that self description in a shitpost.
  23. I did it with glass on a waxed prop shaft making a stern tube years ago. Had to "unscrew it" to get it off - one person on the mandrel and one on the tube and just wind and wind until you finally work them apart. The next thing I'd try is a drift slightly small diameter that the mandrel and tap it with a mallet. If that doesn't work, you're probably screwed and will have to cut them apart.

    I've reached the age where I have to be concerned that it is only a fart.
  25. Screw that - it's been too cold to work on my boat here and it's stayed above freezing.
