Like Wharram? Or Kelsall, Schionning, Woods, etc. I wonder if their drawings would have saved a little time?

Steerage really isn't that important.

Especially if you aren't going anywhere? Or, wherever you go you are being towed? Or, you're aground most the time?

Re: The Flyin Hawaiian is gone!

Apparantly the FH became unstuck and then restuck but pointing the other way. There are great pics on post 4368. Notice the repair on the port bow in pic 2. Also a recap of the construction pics, 2X4s and all in post 4382. Please note that this thread has had 292,000 views. Dang!

Hot Rod made it clear he didn't want anyone's help, except of course for money or parts. If you're going to make a spectacle of yourself expect a crowd to gather. In that poster One could argue the drowned person wanted help. Help offered, help refused, of course I am going to take pictures of the ensuing disaster, and probably laugh and make fun of him too.

Re: The Flyin Hawaiian is gone!

He asked for help, just not the help YOU think he needs. I can see how that could bend some noses out if place.

My first reaction was, better yet how about ... Reclinin' Hawaiian ??? However, confusion with the entire population of the island chain pretty much precludes this...

Big difference between offering help and cheering on demise. Whole thing seems poorly conceived. It's amazing they have gotten this far. Still I wish them safe harbor hopefully not on my creek.

Re: The Flyin Hawaiian is gone!

It's like a girl with gigantic implants, no bra, and a tube top getting mad at you for looking at them......what do they expect.

Sorry, been drinking.
