Re: Gunboat 55 Dismasted, Abandoned off Hatteras...

Those graphics on that thing are FUGLY! Wow, goes to prove that money can't buy you taste. Looks like a big motor home graphics. Perhaps they wanted a nicer looking boat to be at the show?

Re: My 11 year plan!

You keep a bucket of spicy wings by your berth, or is that a bucket of Margaritas? I am confused.

Re: Mistake #4: *Getting the Wrong Catamaran for Your Voyaging Agenda.

Bermuda is a serious crossing that has some very unpredictable weather. The Bahama and near Caribbean can be done with careful weather windows.

Re: Finally! A boat-sized computer

You can do different kinds of screen casting to some monitors/TVs from many tablets. I use a Chrome Cast to stream HD from my phone to the TV. That way you can have the big screen when you want to...

Re: Keel Nuts

I would think there woudl be some bedding compound under the plate to even the pressure out, and be a last ditch effort to stop water from coming in. Seems the nuts should be of the same material as...

Re: Finally! A boat-sized computer

IBM, well Lenovo makes one that is not as sleek looking but really small, and can have a CD/DVD drive called the M73. We have some customers at work that use them. (we develop software/hardware POS,...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Now that is a nice, no NICE looking boat! Seems to be quite a good price on it too. I would have expected it at closer to twice the price.

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Re: Huge price drop on Standard Horizon HX851

Re: Sacrificing virgins to pagan gods (sailing related)

I thought sailing backwards over the equator was supposed to reverse aging? Or is that what the sauna is for?

Re: Sacrificing virgins to pagan gods (sailing related)

It is my understanding that the sacrifice of a wombat on the bow will give favor from the gods for years to come. But where can one find a wombat?

Keep in mind that she may say she is a virgin,...

Re: How far can we get?

My guess is you could likely get all the way to the Bahamas, before you got caught!

Keep in mind you have a top speed of about 8 MPH. 50 miles is going to be a long hull. (so to speak)
