I like to cruise thru quiet anchorages all night running the generator, with the Karaoke machine blaring full volume while taking potshots at otters with a high power rifle using bullets made of spent uranium.
Anyone got a problem with that?

Does anybody else Iron their sails or do you all send them out to be dry cleaned...?

Heaving-to on modern boats is impossible so I don't even need to know what heaving-to means before I set out on my circumnavigation in my $2500 22' cb hunter with no sailing experience. Never bothered with a haulout or survey either, they're not in the budget because instead I bought that brand new HD video camera to record the entire trip for facebook.

That's one for the "Most annoying newbie question" post - this is the "controversial" post.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

This one should be posted on a powerboat site, where you belong - you are talking to SAILORS here.

I have my wife do them, right after she finishes pressing my underwear. She doesn't get her shoes back until she's done.
