Re: Cheapest country for a live aboard?

It's cheap there. English speaking. It's nice. I do business there. They're getting hammered by Delta 19 currently.

Re: Anyone carry self-fusing tape?

Re: Blue versus red light for preserving night vision

So today I thought it was a good idea put a red light in my pilothouse because I've been running at night lately. After reading all of this, I believe I'm now a candidate for psychotherapy because of...

Re: Anyone carry self-fusing tape?

Re: Ever seen a UFO?

Re: The great impeller scam.

M-Carr is a tight operation. Always had great results with them. Found some really obsure stuff. Probably worth the custom fees.

Kidding aside, the flyer in the vid says it's not aliens because we've had a look at planets in our local system and they cannot support life. What about...

Re: Need alternative to Pirate flag

Re: Need alternative to Pirate flag
