Re: The WTF are they thinking thread

Nothing wrong with the truth Gord, just that some people cant handle it, and wouldn't know it, if it jumped up and bit them in the ass,and that's the maddening part.
May they who dare ..Win!

Re: The WTF are they thinking thread

Zboss probably sails around southern Florida. Never will forget coming out of Tampa bay with a freighter 5 minutes behind me and a fishing boat tied up to the midchannel marker. They gave us the salute when we suggested that they might want to move....

Jetskiers can apply at the end of the breakwater.

Words to live by. I agree wholeheartedly ... especially about jetskiers.

Re: The WTF are they thinking thread

60 or so ft ketch anchoring in an anchorage at dusk. they 3 times try over others anchors despite advice the anchors are down where the ketch is trying to anchor---they dig up anchors holding a catamaran. they call the folks whose anchors they try to anchor over "rude" go figger----
btw--there were only 20 boats in an anchorage that is able to easily hold more than 80 boats..so why anchor over someone else's anchor when given that info??????

I am thinking that THEY are thinking
"no fixed address, no parole officer"
"Beats the Phyc ward"
"Leave me and my bottle alone!"

The marina sent out the work boat & towed him to the fuel dock. He had 3- 5 gallon fuel cans & filled 2 of them. He had removed the diesel inboard & had a 20 HP merc outboard, had not removed shaft & prop maybe he tightened the packing to keep it from falling out. He had left Minnesota over 4 weeks ago. No generator, batteries dead, no heat & no showers along the way. Was using nails for shear pins on the merc & towing a kayak 2/3s full of water & ice, did I mention no heat. When it was time to settle his tab he had no cash only credit card & after paying for the gas the marina was only able to get $13.00 for the tow before maxing out his card. He had already went way farther than I would have in his boat & his distinaction was the gulf & then the Caribbean. He's anchoring out no batteries mean no anchor light, no bilge pumps, no cabin lights etc. the boat overall looked pretty rough. No $$ less than half way to his goal in a boat I wouldn't go on a daysail on. I wasn't sure if I should feel sorry for him or admire his resolve. One last thing he also wanted to know if there was a sailmaker between here & the gulf, maybe he had another credit card he was saving for that. I'am sure there are others out there with similar stories but there is something about the Mississippi river that attracts people from all over the world who will ride anything down it that will float. Hope he has a safe journey.

It wasn't me! Obviously he didn't visit this site before leaving 'cause he would have been better prepared!

Wait til you see a boat with a motorcycle tied on! LOL
