Food duct taped to a cute chick so that wild critters can feed off of her. I don't even want to know what's going on here. Too kinky, even for a deviate like me.

That is one of the stupidist bits of "Hey Y'all, watch this" I've ever seen. That girl is lucky she wasn't ripped apart by those cute little critters - they can be as dangerous as wild cats - their teeth & claws are every bit as sharp.

On the other hand woodchucks love broccoli. Sounds like one of those "hold my beer; watch this ,,," moments.

 

Round here if you see a raccoon the assumption is it's either roadkill or rabid.

Raccoons are mean. They're smart and they have little social instinct... perfect little sadists

 

I have known a number of people with pet raccoons, when young they are cute & fun, but once they get to ful adulthood they almost invariably turn ill-tempered and destructive. One friend of mine's brother had a pet raccoon that he refused to get rid of it ... developed a habit of torturing the dog, then mom got rid of it for him.

 

Decades ago I had to take a drunk neigbor to the emergency room late at night when he tried to catch a raccoon that had been raiding his garbage. It ripped him up like a buzz saw ... come to think of it, he may have said "Hold my beer & watch this" but I wasn't there when it happened.

 

Girl is cute but stupid. Unfortunate. What is her plan when those raccoons start fighting over the last sandwich? And those raccoons are really really fat, they must be far too well fed on the park garbage cans.

I'm not really sure what you mean about them not having any social instinct. Around here they seem to live in family groups - not just in breeding season but all the time. You rarely see one alone. I like the bold little buggers - I'll even give them an egg on occasion (from a goodly distance) but I'm not stupid enough to get up close & personal with them. They serve as a bit of canary in a coal mine for us as well - if the coons disappear it's likely there's a cougar in the area.

 

Those ones sure ARE fat. The livin' must be easy for them. Maybe they just put that girl out every night for them.

Nasty bastards raid my bird feeders all the time. .22 clears them out for a while. Also hear that marshmallows soaked in auto antifreeze make for a delicious but deadly treat; only recommended if they're not holing up anywhere near the house though because a dead 'coon is a stinky coon. Gonna try that one when it get below freezing around here so they'll die off in the woods and decompose over the winter; neighbors are curious about the .22 they hear at 1 am a few times a month and the AF will work much quieter. But have to be cool if there's friendly-type critters around that might eat the stuff, you're neighbor'd be plenty pissed if you poisoned his doggy.

 

Image of the coonie chick is etched in my mind...creepy. Whoever said it is correct, those are some FAT coons and they are MEAN at the very slightest provocation.

 

This thread is so ridorkulous.

Aw c'mon, they don't deserve to be given slow poison. Get a trap and do 'em in with the car exhaust, or something less cruel.

 

Just because they're vicious little bastards doesn't mean they deserve a slow agonizing death... besides something else is probably going to eat them, and get poisoned too.

 

JMB- about the social instinct: raccoons might live in family groups of mom + offspring but they do not form packs or clans. Mom & dad raccoons can't even stand each other. They seem to be flexibly territorial, and they will definitely fight over food. The ones in the pictures might be so fat they don't care enough to fight, but once they get habituated to people they get difficult to scare off.

Good to know .22 works.

I'd hate to waste a 9mm given today's ammo prices and availability.

 

BTW, I love Broccoli (the Non Tuna version).

And Stowe never bit anyone's finger and his boat did make it around the world in one piece. HR has made plenty of crazy claims and his boat will never leave the bay in one piece. HR used his and his family's money to finance his ill conceived dream. I think there is enough weirdness going around in both cases to negate any claim to the moral high ground.

Who did Stowe bite?. Regardless of his antics and delusional hippie claptrap, Stowe actually did put in the time on the water, and built a boat, albeit a fugly ferrosprout contraption, that has survived thirty years and some hard miles. HR is like the sailing episode of Jerry Springer.

No worries mates, HR remains on Richardson's Bay but he is off the ball. He has move toward the back bay where he used to hang out, in shallower water, north and east of his former squatting grounds off Schoonmaker Marina. Last sighting about 2 hrs ago.

And the winner of firstest and bestest guess in the thread is... drumroll, please...

He will probably just anchor in Richardson bay for a while as a free houseboat. First good winter storm will have him on the breakwater unless he has some serious ground tackle.

Perhaps he could grab some gear from the mothball fleet.



Congratulations, Windward, you win an anker. Try not to drink it all at once.

More blasts from the past, consolidating several posts into one:

port hull inside looking aft.

Some quick facts from Hotrod himself:

Length : 65'
Beam : 35'
Rig : 35' main mast, 28' mizzen.
Displacement: 5 tons (10,000lbs) est.
Aux Power : Twin 9hp outboard 2/4 stroke gas engines. Twin genset 120vac electrical fitment
Other: Twin aft steering stations with cable rudder movement.
Intended use: Live Aboard/Charter.
Expected launch: Within next month for basic hull. Fit out/rigging completed while afloat.
Destination after launch: Sausilto for fit out. NZ once complete.
Construction:
Home grade 2x4, 1/2" and 3/4" ply with spray epoxy coating on all interior surfaces. Exterior finished with epoxy and 8oz - 12oz e-glass.

 

Bob Perry,

Looking at all that with bewilderment, trying to stop him before someone gets hurt, and grabbing the popcorn when James proved completely impervious to good advice are not wishing the man ill.

There are sayers and doers and he's a doer. Most of us, myself included, have expressed some admiration for that trait.

But the boat is a fractal mistake. I still believe it would tear itself apart if sailed through waves. The only way to find out would be to take it out in the ocean. I think that would be dangerous, so I hope the boat never leaves the Bay. No ill will involved, just fascination with a truly spectacular fuckup.

I once had an after hours tour of the brewery. Super fun, and I'd recommend it to anyone who gets the chance. They have a small bar on the premiss.

 

I'd better drink it quickly as Booth likes that brand as well, and he's been seen nosing about this thread.

Someone just doesn't get it! If this is real (and "75% completer" suggests it is) the guy's even more delusional than we'd thought.

But it does show he's realised that the FH isn't seaworthy, but hasn't twigged that everyone else knows that too.

 

Good luck with the sale, Hotrod, and btw, there's a typo on your ad. No, not "completer", it's the $499 that's got scrambled in translation...

Well there goes another dream shot all to hell. Looks like HR has decided that living aboard a shedamaran anchored dragging train weels around the Bay Area is not as much fun as he thought it'd be. Or maybe another fund-me-scatamaran prank. If so, not funny IMHO
