Doing it in a Hobie helped, it only took me 3 days. I got a boost from Hurricane and rode it most of the way.

I stand corrected, sir. I wanted to test your theory, so I bought a Lorcin and submerged it to 300 feet. I'm a bit perplexed at the moment as to how I'm supposed to retrieve it, since you didn't give full instructions on that.

But anyhoo- it's now my anti-pirate medicine of choice!

I did run across a Jennings .25 that looks like a nice one. The add says it just needs some TLC. I noticed it has some scratches below the slide where the current owner was trying to remove some ugly numbers that some other idiot had stamped on it.

I'm thinking of using my student loans to buy it. I'll need a good one one day, since I plan to join the marines. I figure if I'm gonna be a jarhead I should bring my own weapons because that way I know I'll have a quality one.

What do you think?

Listen Killarney, forget all the anchor nonsense. As long as you have your iphone you'll be perfectly OK.

Don't forget one of the cardinal rules of Sailnet. It sounds like you might be its author.

Re: What to do?

I have to leave my boat unattended for long periods of time. I noticed on Miami Vice that Crockett leaves an alligator on board. Has anyone tried this? It sounds like a pretty good idea.

Sounds like you won't need any cushions for the dinette...

Re: What to do?

Why sail around the world, if your just going to end up where you started? You're already here.
