Re: Bent Mast Repair

OK... I got here early to set up the Powerpoint presentation:

"Holding Your Ground" - "The differences between whipped, and wise"

Jones is out getting coffee and doughnuts...

Re: Bent Mast Repair

Haha!

She really did bring up some good points. And we've got 6 boats already. And this one was a 7 hr drive away. And I'm super busy right now and for the rest of the summer. It sold for more than I wanted to give. Blah blah blah.

I could use a doughnut, though. I eat when I'm upset!

Don't know what happened to Jones...said he was going to the "something Palace" for doughnuts... lots of mirrors, and poles??? I never heard of it... But hopefully they have decent coffee...

All right... Presentation over then... Wise wins out... ONLY- Because it was more than you wanted to spend mind you...

So now that you have a little good grace on your side... I think it's time to bring up to her your desire to purchase the treasure map mast section...

You should buy it...

Sold, I'm just going to need a letter of authenticity for the treasure map, as well as the candle.

Excellent!

I am sure you will be elated with your purchase... I'm working on that letter... In the meantime, I've found this old diagram of how to use the TreasureMast

I also do not speak English, so I will need the letter in Urdu. Thank you for your consideration.

Re: Bent Mast Repair

Well, I dismasted this boat yesterday. It has three rivets attaching the tangs for the shrouds to the mast, those rivets broke when trying to right it after I capsized.

I should really beef that part of the rig.

A nice couple towed me back home.

Re: Bent Mast Repair

Ha! I was sitting on top of my upside down boat and a bass fisherman passed me without the slightest desire to lend aid. What an A__hole

That's why we're much better off hanging out with A$$ fisherman trolling the shallows of the waterfront bars... Scratch that... Typically no nice keepers in the waterfront bars...
