Ugly boat

I appologize if this is the wrong place to post this but i havent been on here in a while and Id really dont know how to delete the pic of my old boat and replace with the new one. That boat had a curse on it. Someone died on it before I got it. Radio would come on automatically in the middle of the nite even after i took out the fuse to the power. Had nothing but bad luck with it. Soul Chef

What absolute twaddle. You took the wrong fuse out.

Re: Ugly boat

The fuse I took out was from the radio harness. The first time I sailed her I had to call the CG . I sold the boat for 10k but got took for 2500 of it. I washed my hands from the boat and the crackhead who ripped me off sold it for a hundred bucks. Oh and it got stolen from me before I sold it... You guys might not be superstitous, but im convinced after owning boats 20 years.... That ones very much cursed. If you dont believe me, you can probably get the boat dirt cheap. Good Luck

Re: Ugly boat

There are definitely boats that have bad JU JU, or negative energy, how ever you want to classify it, some boats are best steered clear of.

Re: Ugly boat

Any boat with a previous owner is haunted. Seems most of the poltergeists I've found aboard were the spawn of the PO.

Re: Ugly boat

There might just be appreciative boats out there too. I saved mine from salvage and shes always seemed to get me out of whatever crap I got her into.

I had an amusing experience when overstressed, overtired fro single handling and the boat appeared to be a malignant, uncontrollable monster totally out of my control. If i had options i would have walked away fro it. I actually phoned a friend telling them of bad spirit on the boat. Must have given him something to worry about - me!

Of course, after a good night sleep i realised that there were a lot of control and practical sailing issues all combining to set the boat out of control.

Single handing!

Who would be your sage of choice to burn on here? Bugger it, burn 'em all.
