Looks a little like a, very modified, West Wight potter? Is it Glass or wood?

Pirate, Nimfa...

holy smokes, i don't want you talkin to The Cuban, you got that? she's already got too darn many ideas....

"Can we change the colors of these ropes? I don't like the red ones."
(sure snuggles, fork over about 600 clams and we can get any darn color you want)

"What happens if I pull on this rope?"
(the jib comes down, and we stop)

"Can we put more speakers out here, I can't hear the stereo very well"(no, thats the point)

We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through

Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs

OK Nimfa, spill the dirt on this bilge rat.

From the look of the portholes, I would say it was built in the 80's.

That's the ultra-rare Flying Wombat 24! I thought they'd all sunk years ago. Damn things had a nasty habit of rolling over if you even thought of sailing to weather. Also had a tendency to spontaneously combust, due to a bad batch of resin from China.

Oddly enough, I think this particular one was Giu's first boat.
