Re: Ice on Lake Superior in June

I don't know what any of that has to do about the topic of this thread, but I gleaned from it that you are mad. Maybe now is an appropriate time to step away from the computer, go outdoors and enjoy...

Re: Ice on Lake Superior in June

Take it to the appropriate venue. This ain't it.

Earlier in the thread, from the moderator:

Re: Costs of trucking a boat??

I'm going to echo the comments about $1/mile being impossible. That will cover the driver or the fuel, but not both. After fixed costs, profit, etc. you are probably looking at something closer to...

Re: Price of boats... Wow!!!

Wow, it's tougher than I thought to find boats that (1) have a large number of listings and (2) we produced across a long period of time.

I thought the J/24 would be a great candidate for this,...

Minnesail, thanks for pulling that together. It's a nice contribution of actual data to the discussion.

Re: Price of boats... Wow!!!

Boats kept on the water are not a practical home in many areas, for a variety of reasons:

Having read the whole thread, I observed that several posters either did not take this threat seriously or don't care if you follow through.

From the perspective of an individual boat buyer, this is a sensible view to take given that it's your own safety on the line. We should all strive to make sure that the boats we sail are maintained...
