Safest?



It all depends who the other end is attached to....
then it may not be safe for you.. but more of a debilitating anchor..

Re: Good Bluewater Boat?

Indeed it does. but it makes for a great twist in a thread about anchors

I shall let you start such a thread. It is appropriate today (April 1'st) and... I have caused enough trouble here for my first outing... No need to push the boundaries...

Re: Good Bluewater Boat?

Water storage should not be a problem, but the cost of running the generators might be slightly more than you wish to spend. Would make a great bed and breakfast if you can cook.

I look forward to constructive criticism and information.

BTW. What type of anchor should I get? What will work best for me?

Thanks again.....

E.
It probably comes fitted with some anchors, probably all chain though. You might want to change that, too much weight in the bow and all that.

Re: Good Bluewater Boat?

Looks like plenty of room for sod and a 9 hole course on the deck. Add a couple of floating docks to tie up to and have a floating Marina. Go where the action is. Add a Harrier or two and escort cruisers and merchant ships through the pirate infested waters of the world. Should be plenty of area below in the hangar area for a lounge or two with a nice restaurant and hopefully even a cat house for the merchant marines on the big escorted ships.

I'm not saying how you should use your new boat but just a suggestion. Are you even allowed to have a brothel offshore? Who's to stop you.....besides the Admiral?

I like this... we should start a new fundraiser... "Get the Ark..."
All be 'members' of the latest anti pirate marina, golf course, casino resort.....

Hell, it could even hoist on board sailboats and carry them on the lakes on the golf course... while steaming away from the pirates....

I like it... I like it... are you on board? If this forum can sponsor a Goat for a round the world cruise... then this is a shoe in... no?

Re: Good Bluewater Boat?

Mayhap it comes with anchor (and guns?)--that would be convenient.

I understand from lurking here, that guns are not a good topic to bring up...

Yet, since YOU did it... yea.. the armaments on this puppy are nice.... no pirate problems here.....

I think you might be outbid by Ryanair who are always on the lookout for places to land that are light years away from the destination you thought you had paid to go to...

Hahaha excellent JB . I have flown with them as well - too true ...
If you ever have to go to Frankfurt Germany don't use them . They land 3 hours away .

Re: Good Bluewater Boat?

If you were able to get some pre-paid contracts to provide private security for those wishing to sail through Piratey waters, perhaps you'd scrounge up the capital needed. I know a couple of old gunner's mates who'd work for minimum wage. Just a thought.
