"What's the fastest boat I can buy that will let me fit in a circumnavigation between season 6 and 7 of GoT?"

"What's the best anchor? (Tried search but didn't find anything)"

"New member, first time boat owner here. Just brought 75 y.o. wood yawl on Ebay. Been out of the water for a couple of decades. Needs a bit of TLC. Can anyone recommend a good book on wood working as applied to boats?"

This should be merged with the gin tankage thread and the question should also ask how many gallons of tankage is suitable for a gin tank fed from the cooling system still.

Does the Sun always rise in the East and does this affect my chartplotter?

Serial killers: life aboard and cruising

I've been reading this site a while and am really impressed. But I was wondering what members experience has been with serial killing. Have you found it to easier or harder to maintain your lifestyle on the boat compared to land? Even if you aren't a serial killer I would be interested in hearing your stories of dealing with body disposal etc as an everyday beginner killer.

Please don't post any crew bondage ads on this thread, that's just a group of freaks. We are talking BTK issues here.

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

I still think serial killing is a land based operation. But it you are going to try it on my boat, please learn how to sail before you knock me off. Otherwise you will never get her back to port. I don't carry that much diesel....

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

Help! I've just killed my first victim and am currently involved in a low speed chase out of the marina. The wind has died and my engine won't start! Does anyone know the number to a good diesel mechanic or an attorney?? Or preferably an attorney who can fix my diesel?!

Apparently I didn't think this through...

That's exactly the argument I give my wife just in case she has any ideas "out there"

New thread

Engine wouldn't start

I'm new to sailing and have a diesel inboard and I'm having problems getting it to start. Could it be the spark plugs?
