Have you ever asked for sponsorship? Or crowd-sourced your project? You might have, but I had not looked at this thread before today because the title turned me off -- "I hate boats" -- is not good PR for a boat-loving forum. But seriously, if you were to post pictures of your boat projects while in a Speedo, that could help...ya just gotta find your niche, MedSailor.

If you note the significant sponsors on the videos, it seems unbelievable that they would have participated in such uncertainty. The refit was likely anticipated and built to be a fake reality show.

I never criticized the posting delays or disconnect to where she actually was. I explained my suspicion of the misleading refit several times in this thread.

I don't follow the production delay criticisms, I haven't even put the boxes away from parts that arrived two weeks ago yet. But, if you're pretending to fix your boat yourself and you aren't, it's little more than a hot babe washing a car in a bikini.

Oh I don't know, I suppose it depends on what adventuresome means to YOU. One mans ho hum is another mans exciting night/week/lifetime. Maybe you should not judge a book by its cover. And there are very few ugly/overweight covers in The land of Smiles.
