I've been getting a lot of PMs from interested ladies. Few have actual farm experince. For some reason most of them shovel ice! (Who knew?) We have a good freezer on board, so I'm considering the ice shovellers right along with the farmers daughters.

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


(Need to edit this post to add the pictures. May need an hour.)

Of course you are hearing from the ladies. They all know what it means when a man has a big cow.......

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

Was thinking of buying movie rights to Bene's cruise or at least rights to this thread...was starting to plan it all out, maybe premiering during Cowes week in the UK, featuring some ships cowls along side some ships cows maybe casting Capt. Jack Sparrow as Capt. Brad. Possible titles came to mind...It's a Mad Mad Mad Cow's World or maybe just Ship of Fools. Figured it would surely be a PG-13 but then I got to thinking...all this talk starting to sound a little like...well not so PG-13.
Missed it at first, should have picked it up, started right in the first post talk about "tongue in cheek" never thought, whose cheek?
Then the salt lick talk, heck the whole boat will be a salt lick!
And remembered, named cows are happier and produce more milk
when they have close relationships! But the last draw was when
said cow may actually be a...err... male cow?
Think I'm scraping the movie rights idea, but will negotiate
for the ice cream concession or at least the
cow chip rights, as sailors are always looking for better fuels
for heating and cooking!

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.

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

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

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

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.
