perhaps is why no longer has one..... mebbe one with a sailing desire should match his female needs with his lifestyle needs. many felames donot sail nor do they want to live in a sailboat. omg. yipes and freak-- yer gonna make me live THERE!!!!!?????!!!!!!
ROFLMFAO. then the guy gets all huffy and cant believe his sweetie cant stand the boat..omg.ROFL.
some of us like this lifestyle and most of us dont. just like men. ye gotta find the one who likes the lifestyle and alladat before you scrunch her into a small boat and say-- come join me on htis awesome quest. she should have sed--aint my wAY, DOOD-- BUT mOST FOLKS CANNOT TALK PLAIN WITH EACH OTHER, dont know why.

It's an additional expense to keep the batteries charged to keep the keggers cold. I found that learning to drink rum without ice was a significant cost savings.

Works with scotch, too, but there is the added expense of the Scotch, unless you drink Clan MacGregor.

Re: Cruising Budget, Part II

would installing a keg Tap be considered open liquor ?? Think about it if it installed next to the compass, and you do not use a glass,,,,,, just lean over and grab a gulp.......

its technically from the delivery Keg to me

sounds good to me
