The beauty of the post appocolyptic zombie times is, I am allowed to hit zombie brokers in the head with a shovel and grab whichever boat I want without paying a commission.

I am stuck between the Inland Packet 460 and 485 though.

Re: Would a sailboat be a good place to be

Keep in mind, if the owner lacks the resourcefulness, forethought and preparedness to avoid succumbing to the horde, one has to ask whether his is the boat you want to stake your life on, when the undead poop hits the paddles?

It's cool when a typo actually increases accuracy.

Re: Would a sailboat be a good place to be

I think the real question is where can I buy some canons to stop the zombie pirates? Maby I should get one of those fancy extendable bowsprits for ramming?

Re: Would a sailboat be a good place to be

For God's sake people, give it the 'f' up, the Zombie War is long over - it was fought in the year 2011/2012 - the only ones left to post here are already...

Re: Would a sailboat be a good place to be

Centuries of grinding poverty and disease, corrupt exploitative depots, natural disasters, armed strife, and the resulting distrust of authority and outsiders, have perpetuated a culture in which some Haitians give credence to superstitions and folklore that maintain the power of voodoo practitioners, including a small, secretive fringe of bad boko who perpetuate the zombie (zonbi) belief and might still be practicing zombification. But their unfortunate victims, if they exist these days, are not to be feared, and are nothing like the Hollywood image.

Do you think people in the US or other first-world countries would ever become sufficiently impoverished, ignorant, superstitious, powerless, numbed or drugged, and fearful enough to believe in our equivalent of voodoo witch doctors and give up reason, logic, and science to surrender their free will and be controlled by the American equivalent of the evil boko?
