SPAM shelf life?

Many SailNetters have, no doubt, been missing our friend Sailslikethewind. Remember? That overzealous employee of Arthur W. Kelly's Kiwi Boat Works in Elizabeth, Colorado. Good detective work from Cardiacpaul smoked him out, and Mr. Kelly assured everyone it wouldn't happen again.

Well, dadgummit.

Cheers!

Here I thought this thread was to be about the pork byproduct substance sold in cans that is apparently safe for human consumption.

That's an invidious untruth. No one can prove there is any pork whatsoever in SPAM. Just as no one has ever seen a sailboat in Elizabeth, Colorado. Gotta give these guys props for persistance, don't ya? I mean, why restrict a public relations disaster to just one bulletin board?

Also, Freedom Boat Works makes the ugliest objects afloat since ... since the last night we ate Mexican food. If they actually make boats. Which no one can prove.

In fact, the OP on the Trailer Sailor board -- the shill himself -- claims he saw these boats at the Seattle Boat Show. An attendee didn't recall seeing five such awesome trailerables -- and indeed, they don't seem to be on the list of vendors. Hehehehe.

Actually, Fredom boats is on the list of attendees. BUT< it appears that from the vendor list, they are piggy backed with the four winds!

I am hoping to get their later today personally, but will not be looking at too many TS's or PBs. Mostly looking for dinghys! and possibly new sails.

I drives me dinghy!

Thumbs up Spam will last a lifetime in the can

Yes; the secret ingredient, embalming fluid (The gel looking stuff) , allows Spam to have an indefinite shelf life.

My opinion.

The versatility of Spam is limitless!

Well...these sleaze bag trolls just move on to the next site when they are discovered. Based on the prior assurances from the owner to all of US that this was a rogue employee and it would not happen again...We can assume that the owner is now complicit in this and therefore no one should trust anything Freedom Boat Works says about anything including their boats.
The boating industry has enough problems without adding sleazebags.
Good work Bob!

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

As we learned from Enron, this sort of rot tends to start at the top. You're right, Cam -- exactly six months later, under another name, another foray. We'd all love to see a new company pushing good, new sailboats at affordable prices; we all care about this industry and wish it to prosper. Gawds, don't we spend enough of our own money toward that end. But shifty companies employing deceptive sales tactics won't revitalize our sport. Solid products sold honestly might.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
