I would have crap my pants, nothing more dangerous and unpredictable than a dying animal...

You were lucky not to get hurt on this...

Exactly! A few days ago I was telling my son (both are TWD fans) that the perfect place to live in a zombie apocalypse would be a large-ish sailboat. Quiet, powered by wind, and most importantly, protected from zombies! You can get most supplies and the little fuel that you might need from moored boats, which likewise should be free of zombies. In fact, sailors at sea would inherit the Earth in a zombie apocalypse, as they'd be mostly protected from the infection, zombie attacks, and general mayhem.

If Rick and his band ever figured that out, the series would come to a screeching halt. Another question that arose while watching it was, why don't they find an island and clear it out? Of course, the comics and show's creators are smart enough not to "find" a safe long-term place for our besieged band of walker-smashers, as walkers must be put down in every episode.

Oh well, thanks for entertaining my survivalist delusions!

Convention of power boaters from the Vancouver Yacht Club were in Victoria last summer. Could have sworn that some were zombies. Age and wealth surely can't do that without a virus. They're everywhere, no safe haven.

Another reason to stay the hell away from power boaters. They'll run out of gas soon enough and zombies can't siphon gas.

I've been wondering about the real world apocalypse of utopian leftists and right wing fascists that are everywhere wanting to tell us all how to live our lives. On the sea maybe there is a place free of this kind of crap. I have noticed that most forums I visit don't even mention the sea.

Re: Creepy sailing stories?

Oh my god it happened again.

It was raining today, but we sailed anyway. Near the end of the sail we noticed that our Chardonnay was empty. Agahst! We clearly have a Chardonnay wight on board. There must be a ritual to excise this demon.

It'll cost you a bottle of Château Margaux, if you want to get rid of it. We wight righters don't come cheap.
