Truck on Sailboat

Recently when talking about cutting corners to get a job done on a sailboat someone told me "welcome to the real world!" As in: the "real world" is a place where we have to maintain our boats in Bristol fashion and do everything by the book.

I would argue that the world these people live in is the real world. The world where boats aren't the play things for middle class Westerners but rather tools to facilitate people reaching their goals.

All semi political rants aside, I would never in a million years try this and I would even go as far as to call these people crazy!!!!

Re: Truck on Sailboat

Cool! Shoulda seen me pulling an old house down with a long chain and a heavy duty truck about 30 years ago. Then I set fire to it so I didn't have to have it hauled away to the landfill. The house needed to go, so I could pave some more parking at my business. I still chuckle when I think about it. ps, the fire chief owned the gas station across the street.

Re: Truck on Sailboat

If only there were a step by step instruction for getting the truck onto the boat.

1) Have friends hold boat to pier by holding onto ropes tied to the boat (no need to tie the boat off)

2) Pray to Jesus or Allah

3) Depress accelerator.
