Is it better to use a Harbor Freight crimper on a Rocna or can I use solder if I am using a Manson?

When I perform a radio check on channel 16, should I repeat it four or six times?

I think all sailboats should be sunk and only power boats should be allowed to be operated on the water... Ha I win...

Yes, it is possible to get a boat for free.

The only thing we could ever agree about is how backward that is, no controversy.

My A$$ hat slip neighbor complained the other day when I let Izzy dock the boat. Damage was minimal, what the heck was his problem?

I've got two bulldogs that have never been on the boat before. Do you have a source for large dog life jackets.

flyingwelshman will become famous soon enough
Me and my old lady (who did a solo circumnavigation when she was 12) scored a great deal on a great project boat – fully equipped with granite counters, and a deck-mounted sea-whiz (for defense against pirates and zombies). We are always scrapping and we thought that an extended cruise in a small, confined space would be a great way to work out our problems.

We have never done this before so we have a couple of questions:
  • Should we be more concerned about penetration or knock-down power? (In our choice of handguns – what did you think?)
  • Should we go with instant, perc, drip or espresso?
  • Gosslings or Captain Morgan or Appleton's?
  • ‘Thongs’ – worn on the feet?
  • Does anyone have any good maps for the coast of Cuba?
  • The wife thinks that Francesco Schettino is kinda hot, and that people have been too hard on him. What do you think?

Well, that’s all for now.

Thanks

I just picked up a beat up old albin vega that's been sitting under a tree for the last 20 years for free. I've never sailed before but I plan on moving aboard with my six newfies and doing a circumnavigation. I don't have enough to fix the engine so I'm planning getting rid of it and harnessing the dogs to swim and pull me down the ICW without a motor. Has anyone tried this? Since the dogs eat so much, I figured i could bring a few assault rifles to shoot birds and fish to supplement cans of dog food that I can heat up in boiling water.
