Re: Wife went off the deep end, chickens? On my boat?

Easier (and cleaner) to just develop a few good recipes for seagull!

Why not buy a few geese and hook em up to the front? Could save on gas!

Re: Wife went off the deep end, chickens? On my boat?

Years ago, my wife's uncle, a shrimp boat builder in Holden Beach, NC, had a big old "watch goose". He must have weighed 30 pounds. When you pulled into the yard, he would come out and start trying to peck you, honking like crazy, jumping up and flapping his wings at you. As soon as Norman or his wife came out and called him off he would go back under the porch and leave you alone. A real annoying goose!

Re: Wife went off the deep end, chickens? On my boat?

I have a crazy dream.
Aircraft Carrier.
Just enough power left (in nuc plant?) to use the hull as a sail.
Move dirt/whole farm to flight deck.
Small craft as dinghy (40 foot utility boat?)
Me and my darling, who needs more!
FTW

Or to add to the current topic,
Catamaran, replace the tramp with chicken coop.
Mega wash down system.

Re: Wife went off the deep end, chickens? On my boat?

Say, I see those aircraft carriers in the Puget, just sitting out there getting rusty. Who knows how much is left in the nuclear plant. Might get em as surplus, the Pres could use them as a tax write off.
You could plant your whole farm and still have a place to hide out the rain.
Slip fees would be killer though.

Now, I love my eggs, my girls lay for me and I do nice things for them. But I have never heard of any one keeping chickens on a boat.
This guy has:

Interesting Sailboats: CORENTIN, THE CHICKEN AND HIS CRUISE ON THE INDIAN OCEAN

The first ones were no good but the second ones give him plenty of eggs. He also had lots of plants aboard....and the boat is tiny.

Fun Vid. Opened my eyes a little on the greenhouse. I had thought about a hydroponic setup under a port. Maybe I will go through with it.

You know those guys look basic but they are not. The guy that built the boat with Jute is an engineer and he joined a lot of young talents in several disciplines including Agronomy to help him developing low tech technologies. Here you can have a view on the several nutrients he has aboard for his plants (lots of them). It may help:




Looks simple but it is a mixture of science and art
