    What a fine looking... ah...hmm... vessel?
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    I wonder if they used PL Premium Construction Adhesive?

    For the full effect I think it needs a couple of old car tires for bumpers.

    The fire extinguisher is a nice touch.

    Could have been OSB.

    It's actually not bad looking, in an ugly sort of way!

    It's got the obligatory arch. What more could one ask for? Actually it would seem to have a lot more going for itself than the crappy excuse for a 3-axle trailer under a 35-ft sailboat someone posted a pic of the other day.

    I thought it was an A-frame for a dragger's net.

    The proportions are actually not bad, IMO.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    I am minded of Ian Fairweathers raft, actually used for a passage from Timor to Australia some 50 years ago.
    Considered more of an art work these days, and I see that in these recycled creations.

    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    ^ one of the people we cruised with last year raved about his downwind sail, apparently it really did well( I didn't get to see him on passage).
    It was a parasailor cruising chute, complete with holes or slot ( venturi effect I suppose).

    Perhaps that ex parachute lug/ crabclaw had a bit more going for it than it might look at a glance.

    That thing looks pretty salty, and seaworthy in a way (built in 1952...)

    Jeez guys, why the derision? It floats, it isn't pretending to be anything other than a cheap redneck boat built from nasty construction ply, and I bet the guy doesn't owe the bank a cent on it.
    Most importantly, he's out on the water having fun. I like the arch - it's a pi$$ take of all the white plastic wannabe gin palaces out there, the dude obviously has a healthy sense of humour.
    The bit that has me confused is thing above the cabin with the circle of wood. Is it a steering wheel, or a jousting target?

    I like how he set up a patreon account so folks could buy him beer.
