    Craigslist - Not mocking

    If that boat was anywhere west of the Mississippi I'd go get it tomorrow, seriously. It would be a perfect day sailor for dillon. Tell you what, you go get it and ill pick it up in early February. I'm visiting friends in Ft ************ and could rent a truck/van one way to haul it.

    Honda 2.3 HP Winter Storage?

    Yea, I dropped mine in Bahia Concepcion. A little fiddling and it ran the rest of that trip. Took a major cleaning though the next season to get it going again.

    Honda 2.3 HP Winter Storage?

    I'd drain it, then only run ethanol free premium in the future. Every small engine I own, chainsaw, lawn mower, outboards, motorcycle, ATV etc, run ethanol free premium and have no issues firing up. Even if they sit all winter with fuel in them.

    It finally happened, after 10 years someone found Forrest Fenn's hidden treasure. The identity of the finder is unknown as well as the exact location. More info should come out later. https://denver.cbslocal.com/2020/06/07/treasure-found-colorado-forrest-fenn-chest-hidden-rocky-mountains-deaths/

    5 years till retirement

    I spend a ton of time dreaming, then the reality of a budget slaps me in the face. That should at least be somewhere in the dream process. Champagne taste on a beer budget describes me perfectly. This would do it. https://www.sailboatlistings.com/view/89137

    Blades/knives. Whatcha got

    What a coincidence you started this. Just yesterday I was telling my wife that I've owned this for 50 years, got it back in my cub scout days. One of my most treasured possessions. No telling how many fish and other critters it's gutted.

    Mysterious monolith found in Utah desert

    One of two things possible, 1. They truly are the fucknuts they appear to be. 2. They are acting like racist fucknuts. Anybody can buy a trump hat and act like an ass for a camera. Either way they are fucknuts There are many Republicans on this board, myself included. None have the attitude you so broadly brush with.

    Don't MoveTo Florida

    Good friends bought a mcmansion in North Ft Myers. It's on a canal, they put a 60 foot motor yacht on the dock. My wife and I booked flights for the last week of January into February. By then we'll need a good thawing out. What should I expect?

    Random PicThread

    From the same photo shoot, one of the most iconic skiing photos ever. 1942 Girls Gone Skiing image. This is the world’s most sought after vintage ski photo. This photograph was taken on July 4th, 1942 in Mt. Lassen California. These girls were all friends. This was the first time the road had been opened all year because of the heavy snow storms. This is a personal photograph from the ladies in the photo who granted us the rights to use on our products. The women in the photo are (left to right) Tora Anderson, joined the army during WWII and received commission of Lieutenant. Barbara Germain was a member of the Ski Club called the Malouts. Loretta Bertoli and Bettie Johnson

    Lusting on Yachtworld

    I have the one on the left installed in the laundry room. Works fantastic. Far superior to earlier models.
  24. Well they appear to be the outliers of the genre. They can afford to do it and aren't begging for money, at least it appears that way.
