No, but global warming is caused by the sun. Without the sun, it would be much, much colder.

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

I have a 65 foot steel boat and the engine has seized. What do you think of the idea of tossing the engine and fitting an outboard on the back end?

How big should it be? 25HK?

Who needs an emergency brake? But I looked and I can't find the parking brake on my boat.

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

I know this will sound strange - but why do you all use those silly words like, "sheets, halyards, lines" when you really mean rope?

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

I wouldn't find an island where I expected it, is this due to global warming?

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

More people have trouble with unexpectedly finding islands, reefs, and shoals. Is this evidence for global cooling or natural selection? Or evidence that these sailors * should have bought a hovercraft?
