Why would you want to eat a hairdo from the 80's? Yeckk!

But along those same lines:
"I see fish getting electroshocked and floating to the surface at our marina. Does that mean I should not go swimming?"
"I see poo floating out with the tide, should I confront my dock neighbor?"

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

I've been boat shopping for 3 years and have gone and looked at 50 boats and haven't gotten one. Please help me with some good boat models.

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

I am in ga but going to get hull number in al because ga has all kinds of rules I was under inpresion it is all about money I have a john boat registered in al they just want a tag nothing else plan on learning to sail and them maybe buy a bigger boat 25-30 feet

Therapy, it's just that some don't know the difference between speed through the water and speed over the ground.

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

Why do they keep emptying the harbour of water a couple of times per day. Do they really get that dirty?

conversely


I don't understand, once they have gotten the harbour filled with water, why do they empty it a couple of times per day? Sheesh, don't they know anything about water conservation?

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

Mutiny, my husband put the toilet paper roll on backwards! Can anyone relate?

Abandoned ship, how do I get my crew to stop puking in my CLEAN life raft ?
