Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

Bene

you jest; but when we came down the rivers from Chicago to Mobile, we met a girl in her 20's who built a raft out of scavenged materials, about 8' X 14', powered by a 10 hp outboard. She made it from Pittsburg to Pensacola.
It had 3 walls and a shed roof. Hibachi for grilling... And 2 chickens for fresh eggs.

No joke.

Maybe we should open this up for a vote or something.

Thought I'd post some pictures so we could all decide who should go on the trip.

#1 Good attitude. Fun disposition. Shovel at the ready.


#2 Nice foul weather boots. Smart bringing a hat.


#3 Good stance for rocking and heeling boat. Outfit may confuse other boaters.


#4 The one in the middle. Big family.


#5 She already owns a boat!!!


#6 Worthless shovel.


#7 Best all around. But no boat.


What do you think?

Regards,
Brad

Personally, I'd go number 2.

I think you would want to beef up the deck before bringing her onboard

I am not really from Toronto

Yes, I promised to stop reading this thread but I was unable.

We've moved on to the classic Gilligan's Island: Maryanne vs. Ginger debate. This is amazing thread.



Everyone knows the answer is Maryanne.

Seeing as I'm making final moo-crew choices, I need to know the secret here. Why Maryanne? Does everyone agree with capecodda (and Smacky) on this?

The second goat took a nibble, licked it's lips, and went back for more
The second goat was obviously destined to become cabrito rostizado...It had to have been a Mexican goat. I would suggest serving it with a fresh pico de gallo with cilantro, jalapenos, onions, tomato and diced avocado. Oh and fresh tortillas I like the flour ones, but your choice.
