The most controversial thread EVER to be posted to SailNet!!!!! Right HERE

I propose a contest, for the most controversial thread ever to be posted to sailnet. The post must be a simple question or assertion. Here is my entry:



I have finally found the perfect anchor for all boats in all conditions. Just look at the large fluke area. All other anchors are now considered useless ballast. See photo below for THE PERFECT ANCHOR FOR ALL BOATS.






Beat that!

I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.

And I propose that to attach that anchor, one must only use 2" braided shock cord.

I propose that biodiesel, made from rendered baby seal fat, is much more environmentally friendly than the evil oil company crude!

Depends on what heat source you use to render the fat. Gotta check those carbon credits, after all.

I propose that late term abortion should be legal up until 18 years from date of conception. If that date cannot be determined, then last known drunkfest would qualify.

Such a simple question, with such a simple answer:

The Elusive Half Knot does not exist.

I've never been sailing before, but I have $2500 and am going to buy a 22' boat to circumnavigate the world. What should I pack?
