Re: burnt boat for viewing

Brewgyver,
(Great screen name by the way. I guess you can make beer out of anything? Or perhaps you need a few brews to bring out your creative juices?)
I'll buy your AC=alternating current theory. Also, when alternating current was developed the '/' (forward slash) was probably not that popular either.
Have I seen you posting over on the Moyer Marine forum too?

Caleb, I would guess that the convention got started because Alternating Current was in use for years before the advent of Air Conditioning.

Re: burnt boat for viewing

ah ha
not a sliver escapes you technically minded boat gurus...
A/C

the mate on the large twin diesel craft towing this floating charcoal shrugged his shoulders smiling at my repeated questions regarding said sailboat/location/A/C unit...
besides
he was busy trying to catch some river catfish for dinner! & seemed sad that there was little chance of snook in the area

an interesting note: the large twin diesel towing her led a train of three boats! towing two!
the floating charcoal in the middle, then a large trawler behind as the caboose, quite a salvage
if you are on the ICW in the next two weeks perhaps you can catch a view as they put up the West Coast then over to AL & TX

the older grumpier captain seemed to confirm the story of the sailboat fire(see above)
though I believe he mentioned Ft Lauderdale as the origin
the details are left blowing in the wind I suppose, & yes what a waste of materials on this incredibly fragile planet we all care for, some in bizarre misguided ways

Additional note: For clarity, AC typically means Alternating Current, and A/C = Air Conditioning.

I thought you lads would enjoy the image

the sordid tale involves the fact that it parked next to a sailboat last month which had a malfunctioning AC unit enjoy
Are you saying that it was trashed by a sailboat?

Revenge is sweet.

Yeah as long as no one was hurt who gives a rats behind about the stink pot? They belch mother earth killing carbon laced gases. We want to know about the environmentally friendly sailboat.

Why bother, it's a stinkpot!

More details about the cause of the fire in the sailboat would be helpful.

I would imagine that boat has a date with a chain saw.
