This has become problematic post-Covid, unless you stay within the territorial waters of your own country. Paperwork and clearance has become much more excruciating...Liveaboards abroad are trapped or prevented from hailing a port.

Even at the best of times, you still need a home based to register the vessel, and all the 'virtual anchor and chain' that entails. The laws of your flag pertain on-board as well, in international waters, and the flags of the host country when in their waters. A little known fact. So, US laws apply when in the middle of say the Atlantic, if you are US flagged.

At sea, no poles required for decent fishing. You can drag a lure from a large hoop reel of line.

Compass is worthless without a sextant and good charts. GPS plotter the norm, but better have a backup.

Your vacation is more like a full-time job. Boat duties and maintenance and repair are a constant.

Most folks view of care-free sailing is like a privileged millennial's view of socialism. Idyllic without understanding the innate system at play, the nitty-gritty details and harsh realities.
Damn

You sure know how to take wind out of a guy's sails.

HAY!

Put them to work?

This is a guitar forum! JAM

BYOGA&M! LOL

Bring your own guitar, amp and mask!

Woodstock? But you gotta have mud!

Some have and do think, literally. Like they are waiting for apocolypse or the second coming of Christ, or the world to explode because the Mayans stopped their calendar.

Me? I just think too many Americans have lives that are much too easy now, and because of it they create drama and problems where they either did not exist, or not to the extent they want everyone to think they do. Maybe they ought to come down to the farm here so I can put them to work.

We are having a drought! There is no mud. Just cracked ground from dryness.

Waaaay back, attended a school in Canada and loved it.... Love to go back...

I'd love to live in the Toronto area but out of town....

(I'd be close enough to drive over to Colin's house every now and then with big Stencils and spray paint his yard in the middle of the night....) :squint:

These folks haven't been able to clear a country for over a month because they are seen as Bad-Covid to countries who live in fear-mongered shadow of Covid lockdown.

Ran out of fuel. Using found wood to cook. Subsistence living off sea catch.

At the rate we’re going, they may start gathering white folks and sending them back to their countries of origin.

My country of origin is the United States of America.
Well I was born American, but I’m also a sweed, French,German and some other stuff including a bit of Native American. But considered a white devil according to some these days based off my skin and eyes.

Im going to stick it out. I love my country.

I think we should seriously consider a complete reset. Don't let any politician who currently holds office be eligible for re-election. Set term limits on every elected office. No more than 2 terms. Get back to citizen politicians that have some skin in the game because they will have to make a living in the real world with a real job when they are done with their political term. Outlaw all lobbying so these hypocritical fucks can't become millionaires on jobs that have upper middle class salaries. I've had enough of this oligarchy we pretend is a republic. It's still a damn fine country, but man are people just trying as hard as they can to wreck it every chance they get.


If i could like this post 1000 times i would.
