Re: Where to donate boat in So Cal?

You could donate the boat to the Aquatic Center in Mission Beach, San Diego. I like them a whole lot more.

Re: What kind of boat is this?

Until proven otherwise, the ship you're interested in is none other than the famous Fart Knocker; the only ship to sail the seas of Uranus.

Call me greedy, but I'd take both....since they're both free.

Re: Long Range WiFi -- Posting right now using "long range" wireless

I haven't read all the replies, but at 6'5", be sure to lie down in the berth(s) of whatever boat you're looking at. Something like the Fantasia 35 has enough headroom (and windage), but always check...
