Who thought that was a good idea? A drug smuggler wanting to get a new boat? Someone wanting to face charges for calling in a false distress?

Someone who needs to listen to others more? I don't but sometimes it is a good idea to ask why something is not a good idea.

Have faith that the oceans are going to rise and flood the world, that plague and pestilence brought on by Climate Change is going to punish us for not believing. Please do as they say it is our only hope. :P

I wonder how many times he has been radioed or phoned in by concerned citizens?

I suppose he is an artist though and probably gets permission from whoever with notifications going out to all appropriate agencies as to whats up...Sort of like we do when burning slash piles....although we have been told by the fire departments that if they get a call the HAVE to come out....I guess they have been sued before for assuming a burning house was a permited fire at one time.

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

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.

I doubt many people would notice that detail if they saw this boat in the water . I would suspect they would make the logical assumption that the boat was in distress, as the reality is not logical.

I have a ladder stored on my companionway hatch cover. From a distance you couldn't tell what purpose it serves.
