I always wandered why the F117 amd the B1 are so expensive. Now I know its the anti fouling paint job.

Re: Bug out boat

One great thing about the US is we have the freedom to be as paranoid or naive as we choose to be. I think I would be more worried about the level of discourse boiling over into angry mobs, than I am in the Govt. coming to take my little plastic home (though I am not so naive as to think they don't have that ability). But regardless, i'm pretty sure that ship has sailed. (and I bet if I did a search the topic has been covered before) So my plan is to vote, and then go sailing. Life is short.

Re: Bug out boat

This is great. I am thrilled that so many of you are preparing your boats for the day the fecal matter hits the air circulation device.
Alas, I do not have a bug out boat. But worry not my fellow mariners. I have already picked out several lovely boats on moorings just ready to be commandeered by yours truly.
The sugar scoop transoms and boarding ladders are a convenient way to climb aboard; and a hard pointy object will suffice in removing any insurmountable security measures like padlocks on companionway hatches.

So on that fateful day, I can rest assured knowing that these floating palaces will be easier to steal than my 1997 Ford Escort.

I do certainly consider ny boat a place to go if I needed to get out. I did always wonder if it would be there when I arrived. Then I wondered how bad the condition of the boat I was going to liberate would be. I am going to keep my boat dirtier looking so no one wants to waste time looting and stealing it.

You haven't ever seen a NOAA LEO? They are armed and they routinely board and inspect commercial fishing vessels... Oh and the ammo was hollow points... They stop faster in the confinement of a steel ship.

They look like this: Office of Law Enforcement

But Law enforcement isn't the only thing they use security for... Piracy is big business these days and there are many who would love to capture one of the NOAA's multi-billion dollar Research vessels.

Re: Bug out boat

When I woke up this morning and read what I posted last night my first thought was "Wow, maybe I drank too much to be on SN last night"....but now after some reflection Ive come to the conclusion that I'm going to need a lot more wine.

Re: Bug out boat

I say buy buy buy... Every thing you buy employs somebody in the manufacture, shipping and marketing of it. If organized hoarding floats your boat
