ugly is not derelict. one judgementalist's point of view is another soul's--perhaps a us veteran's- home.
jumping to conclusions is a hobby not specific to the wealthy homeowner on the icw
in the pix, i saw restorations underway. the johnson dealer has a nice selection , doesnt he?
i would say these are merely in need of new tarps, as wind
happens mightily in sf bay
, especially in winter, when storms happen.. i know it whistles from the shallows of richardson bay over the freeway nearby--i used to drive those roads, years ago, when derelict meant on its side in shallows for weeks. these are not in shallows nor on sides.
as we casually drive by these apparently ugly boats, we do no t get to see the veterans of foreign wars who who reside on boats in richardson bay and other locales.
it must be absolutely lovely to be able to spend time griping on other folks boats instead of guaranteeing ones own boat (or desk) is ship shape. place self into the shoes of the veteran residing in his lil boat with his prolly gonna be ditched subsidy he is able to receive despite the political incorrectness of his service
place self into the insecure area wherein many of these souls exist.
personally, i think many of the boats manufactured and bought today are ugly as dirt, and need to be redesigned. but that doesnot make em derelict, does it?
restoring and refitting a hull
is expensive. some folks run out of dough due to changes in corporate structuring.
to label every boat in an anchorage as derelict is a judgementalist call and reflects badly on the speaker/typoer.
what does op desire to have done with this alleged situation??
i have seen many ugly stained and sad looking boats that are actively cruising. what would you say to the sight of these souls who have been cruising long enough to sustain water
damages to the bows of their boats?? canal
damaged boats from panama
canal--hull and deck connection rubbed through... would you declare these active cruisers in derelict boats??
what about those souls who are cruising and refitting simultaneously? would you diss the appearance of their boats??
what is it that gives you the RIGHT to badmouth the boats of other folks??
yes boats become ugly in and over time. yes some even appear derelict.
but, are you the chosen one to decide and declare what is and is not to be junked arbitrarily?? according to the captions of the pix, it seems you are the self chosen judge and jury for the continuation of some folks lives.
just because you have a comfortable and financially approved allegedly normal life and regulated lifestyle doesnt mean everyone in planet shares that ability.
those privileged with and blessed with the ability to continue to make income
doesnt mean you have the RIGHT to diss other folks situations and living conditions.
first walk a mile in their shoes, then bitch.
your ranting against these boats sounds like the organized ranting in san diego
put forth by the yacht club membership
against the small craft in the anchorage 8 in san diego
, home of doctors, anesthesiologists, phsychologists and other professionals (as well as some without good incomes and some into drug oriented trading) before its disappearance by those wishing the ugliness to disappear. it disappeared into the more obvious downtown area--so these same boats get to be seen by more folks than before. mebbe this is the conclusion you desire???? FORCE the inhabitants to pay rent to clean up their acts?? but then rent makes the ability to repair somewhat more limited....
i figgered out what you want!!!! you want all boat owners to be richie rich and no one else own a boat for residence!!!!!
just like san diego, where it is a crime to own a boat while disabled.(income too low)
if you disbelieve, try it. when i left, i was witness to the harrassment of the disabled on boats by harbies for no other reason than low income
isnt usa still land of the free and home of the brave?? or has that been changed by the judgementalists of the nation??
