  1. He's working on the orange part.
  2. It's more likely to be that Repugnicans are the same as Trumpaloons now. Conservatism is totally out the window.
  3. And runs on 48V. You own the boathouse and lease dock space for it. It's not cheap, but it is dark.
  4. Even better, it has a TV. $45K US. Sitting in a mudbank in Comox. The delirium is strong here.
  5. That would depend on the imminence.
  6. I notice that's base price. https://www.whitehallrow.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/USD-Boat-Pricing-Classic-Whitehall-14-Traditional-Rowboat-December-2020.pdf They take great pride in their products, I worked with them when I had the photolab. Nice people, too.
  7. The joys of inflation. $21K for a Wayfarer? Be still my beating heart. You might see mine on your sailing trips, I sold it in Saskatoon.
  8. Can you get coverage through your home insurance? That's how I used to cover cheaper boats.
  9. I figure 1000 hours is time to seriously think about replacing it. We got 1100 hours on the last one I think, maybe a bit more. But I knew it was time.
  10. The wooden ones professionally built around here from kits were selling for about $6,500 new. I sold my glass Wayfarer in 1980 or so for around $3200 as I recall, but it was totally restored and had a brand new suit of Raudaschl sails.
  11. one of the ones with no brains and about the same personality. At least Malarkey Jack was entertaining Jack was a cretinous pain in the ass. He was as entertaining as diphtheria. IMHO
  12. That's been on UsedVictoria forever. Now he's switched to craigslist. Yes, he's dreaming...but so is this one. https://www.usedvictoria.com/classified-ad/Wayfarer-Sailing-Dinghy_37330341 $5000 for a Wayfarer. Good luck with that.
  13. You can put up with more discomfort and abuse when you are younger. We used to go out for two weeks plus in our Shark 24. Now I'm not sure I could last a night.
  14. April 12, 2021 Yesterday, at about 2:00 in the afternoon, a white police officer in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, shot and killed 20-year-old Daunte Wright, a Black man, after what seems to have been a routine traffic stop turned up an arrest warrant. Today, the Brooklyn Center police chief told reporters that the arresting officer intended to fire her Taser at Wright, but instead fired her gun. Wright’s death took place about ten miles from where Derek Chauvin is on trial for killing George Floyd in Minneapolis last May. Then a police officer, Chauvin knelt on Floyd’s neck for 9 minut
  15. Straight from the San Juans to Seward?
  16. The first elbow I encountered was plugged at the water inlet and a stiff wire didn't do a thing. I finally had to drill it out and even that took some work. Got me an extra year, though.
  17. Yeah, but Sea Word has only been here since 2018 (according to the profile).
  18. We are hopefully going north this summer, back to the Octopus Islands and beyond. It really depends on what this wretched virus is doing by then.
  19. Wow, what a surprise, right-wing clown figuring something out about two years after everyone else.
