Do us a big favor and put me on your ignore list. That will lower board pollution and I won't have to correct your bs.

Also....get a life?
So you choose to ignore people like Mark and I who have been there and been doing that for decades in favour of people with no experience and little knowledge but a more pleasant demeanor ?

Suggest you start your boating education with this article on my website. Marine Survey 101

I've done the responsible thing and told NortChannel Sailor about the unsafe condition of this vessel and he chooses to sail it anyway. We are each the masters of our own disasters.

It's not hard to call out a bull****ter. They tend to blow up spectacularly in response.

One may lead a horse to water but you can't make him think.

Re: The $1 Dollar Boat

Umm... back to your regularly scheduled program.

So you did a survey of this boat? I know the condition issues. Just curious?

Re: The $1 Dollar Boat

It's funny.
Having been around for a while, one can guess the replies to this kind of post.
I don't know what to think.
Rationally 1 dollar is waaaay too much for this boat, OTH I have been there myself, we just can't help ourselves can we?

Well carry on

I guess different folks have have different expectations of boats. It sounds like you're willing to tackle a few obstacles to fix up this boat. I don't see anything wrong with that.

In for a penny, in for a pound. But it's way more fun out there than tied to a dock. You would never know looking around at all the boats that never leave their slips.

A few of my funnest boating experiences have been the tiny sailfish that would almost capsize when hit with almost any decent sized wake.

The other was getting my dad's old wooden boat in the water and trying out my overhauls. Still "leaked a bit" and was not able to coax neither dad nor brother into further ventures. I thought the leak added to the adventure. I mean....a bucket was slightly faster than the leak. I blame old wooden boats...

One does not have to have a nice, expensive boat to have a blast. Indeed, cheap old boats can enhance the sense of adventure. But then, I have cheated certain death more than once.

Re: The $1 Dollar Boat

Sorry to sidetrack things but I will address some posts here. I don't care if you are Jacques-Yves Cousteau, the ignore list will be freely exercised if your britches are too big for decent manners. There are plenty of other members with manners.
