  1. Albacore in NJ https://jerseyshore.craigslist.org/boa/d/lanoka-harbor-albacore-sailboat-and/7296211006.html
  2. One thing to keep in mind, though is that if a boat isn't fun, if it sails like shit, feels like a plastic bath toy, etc. you're not going to use it, and it's going to be hard to sell. It will end up becoming just thrown out money. There were lots of differnet small dinghys designed over the last 50 years; the ones that became popular, the ones that folks still race today, got there because they were good, fun, boats. I'm not saying that the first one isn't (I have no experience) but I know that folks rave about the Comet, and I love the Mirror. You might want to keep your eye o
  3. If day 0 was the day I got the first dose of Moderna, day 1 was fine (besides a bit of arm pain), but days 2 and 3 felt like I was concussed. "Mentally slow" would be the best way to describe it - like I'd go to hang up my jacket in the closet and walk to the bathroom (as if I was hanging up a towel). Second does is next week.

  5. The real ones are Dyers. Dwyer is a mast builder.
  6. What a choke. So much for putting his knee on the throat of his opponent. Two days in a row.
  7. Yes, there seems to be something really weird going on with small sail-and-oar type boats on Craigslist. Look at this "Swampscott" Dory (In quotes, because most of the pictures are of a Crawford Gunning Dory), currently located in the Florida Keys (https://keys.craigslist.org/boa/d/big-pine-key-swampscott-dory-row-boat/7275936246.html), Portland Maine (https://maine.craigslist.org/boa/d/portland-swampscott-dory-row-boat/7265961330.html), Atlantic City, NJ (https://southjersey.craigslist.org/boa/d/pleasantville-swampscott-dory-row-boat/7273584081.html) and Newport, RI (https://providence.c
  8. That seems to be advertised on craigslist from multiple locations (different physical locations of the boat) which is a bit suspicious: https://longisland.craigslist.org/search/boa?query=goat&purveyor-input=owner&search_distance=3000&postal=10001 Combined with the relatively sparse description, that makes me very suspicious.
  9. Penguin, Long Island, NY $850 - https://longisland.craigslist.org/boa/d/amagansett-peguin/7285769304.html
  10. Snipe, Long Island, NY $750 - https://longisland.craigslist.org/boa/d/huntington-station-sailboat-snipe/7285611606.html
  11. Dallas BBQ is unfairly on that list. (And just goes to show how some smart-aleck, ivy league grad, whom had moved to the city maybe two months prior to writing that piece, defined "urban"). About 20 years ago, as poor grad students, my now-wife and I would go for the "Early Bird Special" they had. I want to say that it was a whole chicken and two bowls of chicken soup for 9.99, if you got there before 4 or 5 pm.
  12. It was on 37th, so that makes sense. Literally saved so many weekends, kids lost a life jacket, dropped a block or something overboard, marine tex epoxy for a quick repair, etc. I don't even know where else you can find marine supplies in the city, maybe nowhere.
  13. I just saw that the Manhattan location of West Marine is no longer listed on their website. Does anyone know more - is this a permanent closure, or is it temporary, Covid related, shutdown? West Marine isn't perfect, and that Manhattan store was small with a limited selection, but I've spent thousands at that store picking up stuff that saved a weekend.
  14. Which was named for a part of the world, which was named for an Italian sailor, bringing this all full circle.
