i have friends on a schooner who brag on being schooner trash--both have pensions and they also charter
. living cheapo--is an 85 ft schooner.
most of the good souls out here are short on money
. very short on dough.
you guys would not "äpprove"of them nor of me, i know..lol..
the IQs of the souls i met who are derelict sailors ----add up 5 of yours and multiply by 7 divide by 2 and add your age, then multiply again this time by 4---if it doesnt ccome to 188 or so, then start over and re configure----the most intelligent souls i have ever met are those who do not conform to YOUR standards..
but ye can learn a lot from cheapo derelict cruisers. a lot more than from yuppie yotties with shiny boats.
not only do they SAIL better than the shiny boat souls-i dont care where you race--that is not cruising or normal sailing...lol--is a show of testosterone, only!!!!
best boat repairs
are from derelict sailors--stuff lasts, as they know how to FIX the problem, not just prevent the inevitable or run to marina for repairs
..lol..and they dont charge 100 usd per hour to repair stuff.....
they also know the places they sail better than the club of snotties who parade thru every year then put boats away f or a looong time before using again.....they are also better at securing boat to ocean floor han are most snotties i have been anchored over.....rodlmao----i do not trust the snotty yotty in an anchorage--they are first to fly on a windy day, and cannot manage to be on board WHEN they drag anchor
just splainin my OBSERVATIONS.....lol..even have pix of some of the cannot anchor group.....but if i post then am against catamarans...rodlmao....
i obtained my formosa
from a fella who was not a sailor and who bought a boat he didnt know how to manage much less repair. he bought a lot of STUFF not knowing for what it is used.
i gave boats away and sod boats to homeless vets....i dun gud...
i woulda done better but i couldnt find enough free boats to dispo to them.
ihope you judgementalists do not ever have to learn how to manage on your own, as you will not succeed.
there used to be a no go 55 club in cars--lol...but now there is a no go 55 group called employers. learn when you arrive at 55 what happens, and try to be prepared--it isnt gonna get better, only worse. the dead in the water
age of no hire could well lower to 50 or 45.....is on its way--markets and finances are not going to improve before they go worse.....
enjoy your judgementalism and stereotypes as you become them....
let us all know how you fare as you arrive at 55......and unemployability.
if you are not yet 55--find a day job you can do everywhere--one guy here does flame eating and sword swallowing to make it go..he has a formosa
41 with electric propulsion
speaking of IQs, many who typo do so because of higher than normal intelligence
same with thinking outside the box---those who have the IQ can so do, others have difficulties with that aspect of creativity
how many souls who live outdoors have a very high intelligence quotient.
