Titles we really want to see in CF

Maybe it's just my perverse sense of humor, but I see so much humor in the titles of the threads here on Cruisers Forum. It's too bad we don't get really creative and start threads such as:
Monohull found faster than a 747, but only marginally faster than a multihull...
Lagoon 600 vs portaboat: which one is more seaworthy?
or
My GPS tells me I am in New York- we'res the Empire State Building?
So let's here it! What would you really want to see on threads here in CF???

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

Thread catagories we need:


"For the aluminum hat crowd"
or
"sailing the world in your 3d printed boat!"
or
"the Plexus love thread"
or
"those too lazy to Google"
or
"can I round the globe in my sail added foldboat?"

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

well I've posted threads where the titles were about the ability of my boat catch lobsters and the anchor to catch fish

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

Composting head explodes inside boat due to methane build up. Owner is heard yelling Sh*t!!!!!! No one sure if they were yelling out of surprise or were just stating the obvious.

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

How about Hunter vs. Bendy Boat, which is the most seaworthy? Oh, maybe we've already had that one.

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

Are liveabord's (note that apostrophe!) really homeless?

What's the BEST...anything

How big does my solar panel have to be and how and where do I hang it?

Has anybody done...?

What should I name my boat if I don't have a girlfriend, mother or dog?

Can my Catalina 22 sail around the world? I keep reading on this forum that any well prepared boat can do it.

How long will my batteries last if I use my inverter to run my water heater and air conditioning?

What do I do on a vacation in the BVIs on a boat?

****************

......apologies if some of these have been "stolen" from actual posts over the past few days.

Are you on the 'let's generate more CF post traffic' committee? Weavis is chairman.

Tough call on the portaboat.

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

I just towed in a dismasted Gunboat 55 with my Hunter

I just ran into a 65' homemade Home Depot catamaran. The only 2 things on it worth salvaging were the BBQ grill and the Harley.

Looking for crew of 35 lobbyists to sail my boat from Wash. DC to Venezuela...

I just won the Lottery! New AEDs for every member of CF!!!

I just received a bill from the USCG for a recent rescue...

My fuel filter is clogged on my 65' yacht. Which is faster, a 5hp OB or paddling?
