you know what would be amusing ...

If one of us was unnaturally wealthy and needed a creative way to waste some money, it would be fun to buy Hot Rod's plywood boat, get a friend in a regular boat to follow, and then just sail the great fat fucker to Hawaii! See how far you can make it ... it it starts to fall apart, jump on your friend's boat and try to steer clear of the debris field.

All this local knowledge and not a single local BOAT with a camera?


This is sailing anarchy - most of the "experts" in this thread are in their mother's basement eating doritos and spend equal time here and at some donkey porn site... boats aren't actually involved in their lifestyle.

Yeah, my thoughts exactly... I've been a go the Rod, and have had some bird shit spewed in my direction from the armchair sailors. So far, they are the ones sinking... Call the Coasties, there are some sinking sockpuppets and dumbasses here that need to be rescued.
actually I think you are both wrong on this one. I have met a fair share of anarchists up here in VT and I know what they sail. I have yet to meet a person here who doesn't sail, a lot. Watertribers, dinghy people, O.D., big boats, ice boats, RC boats, etc. Most who I have met are passionate sailors. Tom Ray is one, he was at the EC taking pictures at god awful times of the day, not the type of thing you do if you just sit at home. Even being based in VT I have met a surprising amount of posters here. Now, those pics please? Well, once the shit hits the fan anyway.
I get up early anyway. The time didn't bother me, but the temperature sure as heck did! ;)

Oronoco, you may be able to see the boat from a road, but I wanna see the developing cracks in the boat. That's going to require another boat.

More likely that the people cheering HotRod blindly are the ones with less acquaintance with basic nautical facts. I have met several SA'ers in person (as well as a previous wilder USENET forum) and pretty much all of them have poured more seawater out of their shoes than you wanna-bees will ever sail over.

And some of us find deadbeats repugnant. And some of us dislike the idea of dumping trash in the water, even if it includes a donorcycle.

But hey... if HotRod's performance gives you a big wank while fantasizing about running out on your own bills, have at it.

Is it just me, or from some angles does the design inspiration of the FH look like a civil war ironclad??

Just sayin'
Ya gotta read the entire thread! I mentioned that a few weeks ago - it's exactly what the FH looks like. His gun slit ports only added to the effect. :)
Sorry I missed that Sloop, my schedule only allows me time to skim this.. This thread needs a weekly digest/summary.

On another forum someone suggested that Hot Rod should rename the "Flyin' Hawaiian" to "Hi Haters!"

Get back into your mothers basement and spend an appropriate amount of time here. :p

Sailing for 30 years, cruising for six. Ever anchor in 140' of wawa? Used an Aries windvane? Surfed 18' waves with a drogue astern to slow you down? STFU asswipe...

Oh, you bad

I've been sailing all my life, over 50 years now. Have you crossed any oceans? Done it as watch captain on a 100 yr old schooner? Conned a destroyer to a successful MOB pick up? How many hurricanes have you anchored in, successfully? :Let's see... oh yeah racing, how many different one-designs have you picked up at least some silver? Raced in regattas of over 100? ... yeah and boatbuilding, how many have you done from scratch? How many 30+' rebuilt structurally?

I can't type fast enough, and it begins to look like braggin... so never mind

STFU is really not what you meant to say
