C'mon - every one of you know that you'd have sex-fueled raves on this sweet little yacht if you got the slightest chance:



"I got my flippy-floppys
They as big as my boat."




Good luck thrilla. Never hurts to ask dude.

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.

This beggars the question...

"If you are asking for the generous/insane individual you are looking for in this ad to provide a trailer, how are you getting the boat to the slip in the first place?"

You honestly expect someone to subsidize you a trailer and the use of a decent slip at a decent marina in exchange for the occasional use of a old daysailer?

Let me know when P.T. Barnum's preferred customer rolls by. I suspect you'll be waiting awhile.

Seriously, go find a used trailer and put her in a marina with a ramp on your own dime. Or buy your own slip access. Whichever way it goes, it will definitely cost more than the boat is worth. So what's in it for me that I can't get for less money and hassle on my own? If I have my own slip, as others have stated, I can afford to buy my own 16 footer and put her in there.

I get better terms with a timeshare. And that's saying a lot.

This post answers the question of why he can't get anyone willing to take him and out teach him hos to sail.
Is it easy to learn how to sail on your own?

At least this time he was kind enough to hit the return key once in a while with this post. I wonder if he had as many demands on those given the privilege of teaching him to sail.

Dude, that's a 16 footer. He might could get one "ho" on it - but that's about it. And she ain't interested in learning to sail. Trust me.

I thought his first post was hilarious (your link). Still do.

my rebuttle

I'm not delusional, or a troll, or from never never land, and I don't get beat up regularly. And I am also not a bastard either. I'm just a poor guy with a sailboat who wants to trade a slip and storage for the use of my boat. If I had a larger boat, I would still make the offer. I already have the boat at a dock, but it doesn't have side piers, and the dock gets taken in at the end of September. I'm not asking for showers or a concession stand. I just want to be able to take a poop if I need to and not trip on the dock at night. Anyway, I thought it was a fair deal. In this economy, I thought there would be a lot of people out there with bay front property with a dock who do not have a sailboat and would like to go out day sailing on a little boat. By the way, I have slept comfortably in my little cuddy cabin. It's a perfect boat for a couple or a single person. If you make the deal now, you can have the whole month of sailing to yourself, free. How about that! I am a very reasonable guy. I'll work with ya if you want to cut a deal. If you're a wine drinker, we make our own raspberry wine (although you can't drink while you're sailing), and I can throw in a couple of bottles of raspberry wine, a sweet desert wine. I also have a couple of fishing poles and crab cages that you are welcome to use. I am willing to work with ya. So, for all those of you who did nothing but disrespect me and ridicule my ad, why don't you make yourself useful and start up a Barnegat Bay or Jersey Shore group for me so that I can put the ad up for the people who may be interested. Thanks in advance.

the last of my rebuttles

Thanks to SmackDaddy and BFS Gear for not acting like a little brat in second grade. Also, Mpickering said something about borrowing the trailer. The trailer would only be used for taking the boat out, putting it in, and for storage. The boat is already on the water at Barnegat Bay. I would sail her to her new location. you got it now. good. By the way, if you have a boat lift in your yard, that would be super, because then I could easily paint her bottom in the spring. Let me guess, somebody out there is going to make a comment about painting bottoms, right?
