Re: Would a sailboat be a good place to be

This has to be the best thread of all time. And besides, all you have to do is keep moving on the water. No anchoring. You can fish for food and use a watermaker/some barrels. Until something breaks. Aren't sailboats maintenance free? Whoops.

Re: Would a sailboat be a good place to be

It's an.... umm.... flare gun sir.



Apparently they prepared for the Zombies back then too. ;-)

MedSailor

PS. 10 points to the one who knows what the original purpose of this gun was. Hint, it's sailing related and it's NOT a flare gun.

Re: Would a sailboat be a good place to be

It's a duckfoot gun, for close quarter shooting against a group of persons, normally when outnumbered (like if you're an officer on a ship under mutiny).

Ding! We have a winner! 10 points awarded!

-5 points if you just looked up the link from the photo and found that out.

Re: Would a sailboat be a good place to be

That would of course been the modern solution to the problem. I just happened to know something for a change
I saw one on Antiques Roadshow in the UK a few years back, thought it was a stupid idea then too
