  1. Might as well make some of those free spaces... almost a foregone conclusion. Wait, aren't murder hornets a 'thing' anymore??
  2. Too true funny not to share. I was however torn as to which thread it should be added...
  3. Thanks for the intel. Any speculation as to why she's back in China? Oh, and Happy New Year to you & yours Steelmadesteamer!
  4. McConaghy Boats - 90ft custom catamaran named "Raptor". Anyone ever heard about this rare ride? Doesn't seem to be anything on their website now about it. Just this one video of the mast being stepped about a year ago. Seems like it would be 'a challenge' keeping a 90-footer secret... Raptor Mast Stepping - YouTube
  5. When the time is right, I'll hold you to the promise of sharing some photos! In the meantime; enjoy!!
  6. Had another epic day here in FLA. Strange that there are 'rock throwers' around these parts who have never visited my fine state. And that's cool, I guess. Seen too many die prematurely & violently during my life, that I now say (with conviction): live and let live within the constitutional rights granted to individuals. During the holidays here's an idea, push away from the politics, I say. Rot your brain faster than any chemical vice. Maybe even go get out on the water ("fucking condo catamarans" make for a fine long weekend offshore). Or get/rent a boat of your l
  7. Fuckin' be proud. Never second-guess this decision (as you've probably already lost too much sleep thus far). Don't take any time off. Look around and create the next epic portal of your life. Then report back in when warranted. Did I say; be fuckin proud? A damn fine job during yer watch, says I.
  8. This usually does not end well.
  9. Somebody need a late Christmas gift? Not an "R" (as popular lore says only two hulls made in that version) but the more common "S". Still might be a great ride for someone... Occasion 1992 Catana 42S | Annonces du Bateau (annoncesbateau.com)
  10. Now you're just teasing us! Seriously, that has to be a great ride. Do you have any sailing pictures? And for the $64,000 question: how was it like working with Aquidneck? Cheers!
  11. H.M.S. Diamond Rock! Great historical account of the Brits messin' wit de French!
  12. K-I-L-L-I-N-G me with this NJ is a toilet - nailed it! Guam - who knows I did my collegiate work in NM - so get yer overlander ready!! West Coast is Texas? I'm loadin' the freezer with brisket before we sail up to the Montebello's! Get yer sailing gloves ready!
  13. I've done my share of 'camping' onboard and onshore... Where are you roaming? And are there appropriate lands for such activities? For some, finding wide open spaces is now the issue (edges of the map being filled-in and all). Inland waterways in your future? I've done time in Lawton, so I'm interested in potential options.
  14. My friend - For some, as of yet undefined reason, I find this very disturbing... I guess it stems from my love of cooking as a form of family, belonging and heritage (?)
