50 Dollars? I wonder if he will take an offer

At $50 for a 38' boat, I'm guessing he's open to offers. Looks worth saving to me, for the right person anyway.

Can't say I have met any of the cf crew But its understandable the boat is out of water and I'm in a tyveck suite and respirator covered in glass dust. Most people run away from me. Once the boat is done and I'm cruising would like to meet up with other members

Re: Run Into Any CruisersForum Folks?

Yes, we've met a few. Tried to help out with their issues when I could, sometimes just met socially. Can't say that CF members are any different than the "normal" yotties that we meet, but sometimes it is fun to hook real people to screen names.

We generally have the kettle on for visitors, CF, SSCA, or whatever, so if you should see Insatiable II anchored nearby, come on by!

Cheers,

Jim

PS; This applies to stink boaters, multi-hullers and production boat owners as well as others. Jet ski's need not apply...

Re: Run Into Any CruisersForum Folks?

Including you and Charlotte, three for me in Ensenada, plus I had met Zeehag years ago when we were both involved in auto racing. Is Rich Boren on SV Third Day a member here? I met him here in Ensenada as well. There are probably others but maybe CF never came up in conversation.
