Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

i will agree with that....to a point. i would say, rather, it was not designed to benefit the rich. however, years of croney capitalism (a nice word for socialism used by those in denial) have...

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

all true. but you shouldn't judge your parent's generation too harshly. you have to remember that they lived most of their lives, in fact all of their becoming years, in a world that made sense; one...

Re: a cup of water

Re: a cup of water

it's berthed in the chesapeake bay, just south of baltimore. when there is a long dry spell in the summer, it can get brackish enough for jellyfish. but, it's not been dry or summer. so, the water...

Re: a cup of water

you think? haven't looked in there since winter began. i imagine, that space would be big enough to get that much condensation over a few cold months. i certainly can't seem to find any place it...
