    Time to impeach?

    Cool story, bro. And a true one at that.....

    Brexit, WTF

    Yes and Bercow forced to remind the Edwardian Pencil that he forgot to remove his fingerprints from supporting Bercow reject May's first presentation of MV3...oops. Bercow must keep a "get square" list.

    Show your dingy sailing....

    Nice pic! Absolutely, but built the "Frankendinghy" from bits and pieces I had lying around. The lightly used sail, that I bought from UK, is probably some kind of prototype with the original luff length, but with shorter(2,3m) foot and 8,5 sqm SA. I don´t think there is a Blaze fleet in Sweden. Seems to be a very active class in UK, though.

    New sails

    Reefable 100% jib - I was using mine in 30 knots yesterday. And a Code 0 for reaching. Lots of fun.

    CUBA- I'm confused

    That was wet foot/dry foot, a policy to give Cubans who reached shore a pass, and Hatians who reached shore a trip back to Haiti. That ended when relations were reinstated with Cuba, and we agreed to treat people the same regardless of their voting propensities...skin color...nationality.

    This would work well, presuming of course that he is a midget. Otherwise, the 420 is a Boat of Pain for any reasonably-sized adult (with or without back problems).

    Hangovers are now an "illness"

    4 bottles of wine + 3 people = 1 mean hangover illness.
  11. "Today, a meter is “the length of the path travelled by light in vacuum during a time interval of 1/299,792,458 of a second.” Presumably they settled on that for ease of calibration of measuring tools.

    Dropping Like Flies, Now There Are Just 2 Amigos

    What the bullshit artists seem to forget is that Mr. Rosenstein failed to include the Ukrainian extortion investigation in his appointment letter which detailed the topics the Special Counsel had authority to investigate, quite likely because it hadn't happened yet.

    Ugly dodger collection

    WOW - that gem appears to have every amateur ferro mistake there was - 27' - really well able to absorb the extra weight, molded in ferro bowsprit, wiggly sheer, ferro deck & cabin by the look of it, incredibly crappy tabernacle, incredibly crappy dodger..... I'd love to see the interior. I'd wager that everything was built "a little stronger, a little beefier" than the plans dictated. "Very stable" - It just sits there.

    Spray Foam Sealant/Insulation

    Thanks to all. I'll talk to my insurer( lucky that it's been USAA since 1971) and a detailer.

    That gas tank looks like a very comfortable seat.

    Best Anchor Drag Alarms

    We have the "one hour rule" - basically we always wait on board with someone at least an hour after we set the hook. Usually, by the time people get dressed and cleaned up and the boat tucked away we're close to that anyway. But it's one of our immutable rules.

    CUBA- I'm confused

    ???? I thought Cubans got an express ticket to Miami and bypassed all that unpleasantness intended for Mexicans?

    Fast singlehander for 60 yo's for messsin' about

    Too complex. Really want uni-rig Too heavy: Mail hull 159, float w/beam (is this 1 or 2)40 or 80. That's 240 and no mast or sails. Too wide to trailer, I could probably do it and not caught too often. Maybe too wide for little ramp. Nice boat though and the Charlotte Harbor Regatta is in my back yard.
