Man, is sure got hot in here quick!
This is great, look at the anger, suppressed hatred, and pain pour out of people's souls all aimed at me, the awful, horrible, disgusting person who asked for something nobody wanted or was no longer using. How dare I ask for something nobody wants, cares about, or uses. Okay... I'll fix this right up...
OFFICIAL STATEMENT OF WITHDRAWAL:
I, horrible disgusting human being, beggar (feel free to add any other hatred from within you) now officially
withdraw my request for a FREE
sailboat. I no longer want anyone to give me a boat. I hereby declare that I DON'T WANT
anyone to GIVE ME A FREE BOAT
! With an emphasis on DON"T WANT
just so it is clear to everyone.
FORMAL PUBLIC APOLOGY TO CF MEMBERS:
I, Fruitcake, Beggar, Weirdo (other hate based words) formally apologize to all CF members who think it is wrong to ask for something nobody wants, uses, has the time or resources to keep, or cares about.
So, the next time you ask for, or someone freely offers you a cigarette, a beer
, a bite of their sandwich, a sip of their coke, the last french fry, a ride to work (gas), a ride home from work (more gas), a free tow into port when your engine
dies, a used sail, line, bumper, or any other piece of sailing gear
, just remember those are all things that cost money
, so it is WRONG!
And by asking for, or willingly receiving any of the above you are a dirt-bag, beggar, loser, pig, etc. That's what you said, so just keep it in mind.
OFFICIAL STATEMENT TO BUY SAILBOAT:
I, now an okay guy, upstanding citizen, righteous one, sailing hero, general all around good Joe, now want to BUY
a sailboat for $100.00
. There, done. Problem solved
No sane person could justifiably direct their hatred or anger towards me because I am now willing to PAY $100.00
for a boat. Good easily earned money I earn at my job as a Private Investigator (mostly by sitting around reading, relaxing, or listening to my iPod while I watch what people do). Yup, that's what I do. But I don't want to buy it from anyone who uses this forum! I am only going to visualize it in my own mind, dream of getting it, and focus on that goal. I will be doing this in my own mind (which belongs to me by the way) only. I will not seek the boat here. I repeat, I WILL NOT SEEK THE BOAT HERE!
To say what price
one should pay for something would be insane. Who is to say what prices any two parties can bargain for on a sailboat or any other goods or services? Now, I can filter through any offers made free of worry or attack because I am WILLING TO PAY!
Pay with money I have in my bank account that I earn from my job.
you happen to mention that Swan VV, it just came into play...
I may be able to get half ownership
for $10,000.00. But I'll try to bargain it down to $1.00, for the sole reason because I can if I want. Let's see how that plays out now.
Thank you all for your combined energies which are fueling my dream by focusing energy on it, and some very intense energy I might add from a few of you good people. Still, all focused on my dream.
And on the Maldives
thing. I will give anyone the contact info, you can check it out for yourself, PM away! If it works out, you just come in here and say thank you, that's all. Nothing else would be necessary.
"Here's what I have: Cool boat. New ladyfriend. Grown children
. No debt. Low blood pressure. Beat that hot shot."
Okay, you got it...

P.S. Thanks Dockhead, my bad. I forgot to take out the links.
