"pick of boats at the marina". Haha. I love it. I'm trading up. When's the apocalypse?

I think the boat is the way to go. There was a movie where they "escaped" at the end in a sailboat. I don't think it went well, but they never say why.

Would a wind generator attract zombies?

That usually isn't a factor in the old solar versus wind discussion. Perhaps that needs to be added to the list.

Our Fourwinds II is very quite, I bet the Airbreeze owners are eaten first.

Brad

But what if you have an AirBreeze AND a Rocna on board? Would they not cancel each other out as far as zombie attraction?

And would a BFS burgee be a zombie magnet? Brrrrraaaaaaiiiiiinnnnns For Sure

For some reason I've become a fan of zombie shows. A real fun podcast is recorded at my Alma Mater by a group of talented people. It's called We're Alive.

You could be a sailor. This is the internet. I could be a blonde with a 36 DD rack.
What you have PROVEN, beyond a shadow of a doubt, is that you are an assh ole.

Conversations like this is what real sailors do to get through the winter, when their boats are on the hard.

Any sailor who doesn't occasionally sit in the cockpit and gaze up on the stars isn't much of a sailor.

And any sailor so humourless as to belittle the small harmless amusements of others is no sailor I'd share a boat with in the Torres, or even Dire, Straits.


Merry Christmas.

I like to think of the forum and the chat room as having a bunch of sailors in my living room talking (sometimes BS, sometimes not) but I don't have to feed them.

There are plenty of threads that are strictly about sailing. I see no reason why a little lightheartedness can't happen alongside.
