    foul current?

    Once had a compass saying we were headed south as the GPS said we were headed north at 2 am.

    Put a flashlight on the water and spied a lobster pot. We were going backwards due to strong current even though we had enough zepher to keep the boat pointed in the right direction.

  3. Work associate told me as a young man, he took a job running a small ferry on a river in West Virginia during the summer while he was completing his electrical engineering degree.

    Everything was going fine until the day they had a killer fog settle in the valley.

    Little traffic but he had to check the other side of the river as there was no such thing as cell phones in the early 1970s.

     

    He headed out on a run thinking he knew what he was doing,, but soon was totally lost in the fog, and panic started to settle in as he was not a real boater.

    Not wanting to have a collision and lose his job, he slowed to almost a compete stop and quietly tried to use everything he had been taught by the owner along with all those smarts from engineering school to keep from getting run over or running the small ferry aground.  After 2.5 hours he made out the silhouette of the dock.  As he quietly brought her in for docking, he noticed it was the dock he had begun from. 

    And he was OK with that..

    Some scary looking chicks on there.  I am wondering just how drunk do you have to be to hit on some of them..

    Of course the worst ones are the chicks who have eyebrows tattooed on to save time doing makeup in the morning.

    After a year or so, they always looks like crap...

     

  5. if you have your own private septic system, pull the disposal out and replace with $12 of drain and pvc pipe. Food belongs in the trash and not the plumbing..

    You may grind food up real good, but you are putting a lot of crap into your holding tank.  That is not real good for it. If there is too much grease and oils and if it overflows the grease baffles in the holding tank, you can take out your leech fields which is not cheap to fix.  And dumping hydrochloric acid down the runs is illegal nowadays.

     

    My brother is a civil engineer who designs septic systems from housing developments to large hotels and knows his shi.., err... septic systems.
    Told me many years ago to minimize the use of garbage disposals if you have a private septic system.

    3 houses over 35 years and never had a septic issue by heeding his advice.

    The honeydew guys are always commenting on how clean our baffles are when they pump the tank.

  6. She still is under shrink wrap on the rail at Fishing Bay in Deltaville VA.

    Sailed by her Friday after diving my boat at FBYC.

     

    Wish the dicks and their lawyers would get their act together.

    Would be nice to see her floating again.

    She deserves better.

    and Fuck Jimmy Carter for selling her in the first place to make a point nobody cared about, along with his Mr Rogers sweaters (another useless point).

    God did 1977 suck the big one....

     

    forever (still feeling the pain...)

    Bad move by Tesla to sue Martin Tripp.

    Obviously Elon is trying to find a fall guy for missing their 5000 cars a week promise at the end of the month.

    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-06-20/tesla-sues-former-disgruntled-employee-sabotage-and-espionage

     

    Cannot wait to see who is Tripp's lawyer and how quickly they start discovery of who know about his misdeeds and when. Did Elon know about it before his set of promises were made.

    Would not put it by a couple Wall Street shorters to fund a good ball busting barrister to help take Tesla management's attention off their REAL problem, that of production.

    There are reasons big companies quietly terminate employees.

    Telsa is likely to PAY Tripp and his lawyer a lot of money to learn this lesson...

     

     

  8. Tesla is going to be toast within a year.

    Wall Street is smelling blood in the water.

    Report out Thursday shows basically no additional model 3 deposits coming in since last November should he ever get production running smoothly.

    The tax break disappears at the end of the year.

    He admits to make a profit, they need to sell fully optioned model 3s and not base models.  Those are not cheap.

    The competitors are about to unleash their own models they have not had to deal with.

    And there are new battery technologies coming out that obsolete their designs.

    One analyst forecasts the stock will go from 358 to 93-99.

    Bottom line: Most shorted stock in the market.

    and every moment he has to deal with those sharks, he is not working on ramping up production.

     

    Sure he is a smart shit, but as Thomas Edison said Genius Is One Percent Inspiration, Ninety-Nine Percent Perspiration..

    Just a matter of time before he is tossed from his own company as the board tries to salvage the company.

     

    Much as we all love a feel good story, there is a saying in the tech  "the missionaries always get slaughtered" (eg the first ones in usually get crushed by something they had not expected).

  9. Went from smug little asshole to crying like a baby to the judge while lying like a rug to save his hide  “I am terribly sorry I lost your trust. You deserved far better.”

    Luckily the judge saw through it.

    It is federal, so I don't think he gets a break on time, but there are others here who would know better.

    Just hope it is to a real prison and not a some work camp.

     

    He will make someone a nice prison bitch once they break him in.

     

  10. those foils look dangerous.

    Thinking about when the Aussi...errrr Japanese Softbank team just about cut their opponents on GBR Rover boat in half in the Bahamas when they flew over their hull.

    These foils look like they could kill someone if they come over the the windward boat, or if they drop heel due to lack of air flow and jam their foil into the opponent's deck like a biker stabbing his wooden leg with a knife. That would not end well for either team.

    Thought Death Race 2000 was supposed to be run in autos..

    Sixty-six, and thinking about taking it easy - and enjoying his grandchild.  Shi'ite, you just never know.

    smoking from age 16 (USA today) and doing heroin for 5 years (NYT) has a way of screwing up your long term plans...

    YMMV

    Be careful out there.

    I believe that is called assault.

     

    Not allowed to put your hands on someone else.

    Did the Curly get charged yet as the cops have the video?

     

    Good way to get your ass kicked too.

    You never know who is coming from behind on another scoot and how they will react.

    Was coming back from Louden NH races on Father's day (end of motorcycle week) years ago.

    Had the pickup as I had logistic's (carry everyone's tents, sleeping bags, lawn chairs, tarps etc. as 15 of us spent the weekends at the track)

    2 lanes out of town for thousands of bikers.

    Lots of bikes cutting between the stopped traffic.

    Finally some idiot in the old ford pickup next to me gets out and yelling into the the face of the biker who just pulled in front of him.

    About 5 bikers dismount and get ready to beat the guy to a pulp, but some other bikers said to lay off, so everyone returned to their bikes after the pickup was reparked on the side of the road (not sure if the keys were still in it).

    That could have gotten ugly before the driver knew he had just written a check his ass could not cash.

     

     

     

    Just got done rebuilding the starter on my 35 yo GS1000 Saturday

    Kicked over on the 2nd hit of the starter button after sitting for over a year.

    Still pulls like freight train.

     

    Now back to my original quandry

    Do I go for a ride or go for a sail? :<)

     

     

    Take your bike to get to the boat...

     

     

    Boat is 200 yards from house. That short ride will rust the mufflers out.. 1st world problem I guess.. :<)

     

    By the way, that video is now on the home page of CNN.com

    http://www.cnn.com/videos/us/2015/07/17/biker-road-rage-moos-pkg-erin.cnn/video/playlists/wacky-world-of-jeanne-moos/

     

    Curly is going to be seen by EVERYONE who knows him as the basic tool he is.

    and he is facing DWI charges

    Don't you just love when Karma smacks these tools silly...
