Re: Newbe with no experience buys big boat
Smack and TakeFive:
Your're right, it's not a topic we're going to make progress on. I am not "waiting" for a 20 or 30-something anyhow - I do not expect to ever date again, and I am cool with that. I have a tremendous amount of time and energy (and money!) at my disposal, not to mention freedom. I'm happy with the way things turned out, and I feel grateful and fortunate for what I have. Hallmark is NOT gonna make a card with this, but the truth is some people can be happy without a lover.
Composting heads can work very well on a boat with two caveats: one or two people aboard, and no one pisses into the main tank. If those two limitations can be met, I believe it is a far better option than the traditional hoses, valves, and tank.
I wouldn't buy a Portland Pudgy again. I was attracted to it because they marketed it as a lifeboat/tender. This way, I figured, I wouldn't need a $6000 liferaft. In reality, two people at the most would fit in that thing under realistic conditions. And I would not want to have to wrestle it into the water in any kind of sea while my vessel was on fire or sinking fast. With four people aboard, I had to get the liferaft anyhow.
Thanks for the BFS hoodie Smack! You dah man!
