In Topic: Cabin Lighting Advice Please

25 October 2016 - 01:53 PM

i installed a metre of adhesive backed 100 LED/m warm white  strip lighting on either side of the saloon, wired to a dimmer.  Much more even light than the factory lighting set up,  and infinitely variable for brightness.  In hindsight, using 60 LED/m tape would have been just as effective, since the full intensity of 100 led/m in an 8' x 10' space is interrogation-bright.

No BS. YOU can't do it. Don't limit my abilities by your shortcomings. You have zero experience in this area. You simply cannot understand.

Bob you have zero experience in long term living aboard, long term steel boat maintenance, steel boat building, long term cruising ,etc  etc.

You simply cannot understand.


He's successful enough to own a house.  C'mon,  Brokester McHackjob,  face it,  you don't live on one of your boats by choice, you live aboard because you have no choice.  You're not free- you're trapped. You may be one of the few individuals who end up with a higher income  when they get to retirement age and qualify for CPP.  I'll wait a few hours until you scrounge up some free wifi for your typical addled reply.

She wouldn't be the first, nor the last young lady to get a metal working career and journey mans union wages out of building  and  working on one of my boats.










Stop.  Just stop.


No.  Fucking.  Body.

Has EVER turned NOT completing one of your  piece of shit boat hulls into a union welder's ticket.


Not one of the gullible dreamers who buy into your low-rent, low self-esteem narcissism  has EVER used wasting sheet steel and their lives at your urging to become union welders.


You know, I'd respect your short con-into-a long con skills if you had actually managed to create a successful lifestyle, but no, you don't even have the pride to be good at the con you're running.  There is nothing more pathetic than a con-man with small dreams.



See, fuckstick, toiling for hours, months and years of life-wasting time on your wet dream  doesn't qualify as an apprenticeship-you know, one of the requirements of becoming a journeyman (it's one word, shitbird- you write like you weld.)


So, no, one of your litterboxes does not lead to good paying jobs, ever.



The only person who has ever made a career out of building your boats is you.


And we all see what a fucking stunning success your career has been.

I have not visited that forum for over a year. It is amazing to read. I don't recall ever posting there. Seemed like the regulars had a pretty good handle on BS.

Note that they don't need to be disrespectful nor agressive nor condescending to do so.


which is why you're here.... and not there.

The new builder/owner of this boat seems very happy with it. I admire that.






It carries two mountain bikes. Not that this is a particularly admirable idea, but it does.



A big smile from my side :) , to have a colum "the most ugly boat....." on a forum that pretends to be Anarchist. I would expect such a title on conformistic forum. Okay, so be it. Many boat design features which where pronounced ugly years ago are "en vogue" today. Example the negative bow. I designed my ECO 5.5 catamaran 2001. Everybody found him ugly. Why I designed the boat like this, was never asket and I am not willing to explain it here in the context of your discussion. Today I am copied the design word over and most person like the bow shape and is now looked at as very progressive and modern and nobody find the bow ugly anymore. Here some photos from an other DUO 480 C as built in New Zealand better go to .






Apparently, you missed the ADMIRATION part.  Welcome aboard.
