How can you tell a dolphin is drowning?

And then how do you save it?

Kettenbergs were good wood boats. Sounds like a deal.

I love CL boat ads. Two boats. Trailer included. Wife says I gotta get 'em out of the yard.

Why always with the wife? This seems to be a problem for banjo players, ime, as well.

re: Hilarious Craigslist Sailboat Ad

I know it has been a long time since I was in school, but don't they teach composition or punctuation anymore?

Is knowing how to write English becoming the same as knowing how to program in COBAL?

Meh, gimme Pascal any day. And no, that is one boat I would not buy, or even sail on if I could avoid it. The, er, "ad" just doesn't inspire confidence....
