I snagged a wire in the cabinet a couple weeks ago and ripped the ground off a 12 volt outlet. I didn't have a crimper on board so I connected it with electrical tape.

And last weekend I forgot the crimper again ... so it's STILL THAT WAY!!

I once took our trawler's name in vain and call it a "toy boat".

Please state your real intentions immediately or be prepared to be tossed from this thread/club due to the ambiguity of your 2 posts....

Great Electron, I submit that I have been unfaithful to your cause. To whit, I repaired a broken power lead by soldering it to the bus wire, the same way that the factory did it. Having all my bridge electronics working now is a poor substitute for the correct action. I know that as a "yachtsman" I should have taken out a second mortgage and rewired the entire boat, and also should have installed an electronics suite that exceeded the value of the boat by several fold. Forgive my appalling lack of taste and propriety, and graciously allow my miserable countenance to be trouble free in your mighty realm.

Before my reformation I was a sailor.
In addition I own a boat that can go faster than 3 knots.
Can I be saved from perdition

I don't know...some pretty weak posts to be bad boys...

Some of you would never be allowed...but unlike the "hard core group" I would have to put it up for a vote...but don't hold your breaths.

Bilgewater....nice post

Definitely bad boy material...now don't go soft on the "other group"...help me apply pressure on all the weak spots....

Allrightynow bad boy and girls...seem like the "dark side" actually thinks they have the upper hand.

Little do they know how little they know.....

They think they are breaking out on all fronts and yet actual experts show them the error in their ways..but "NO DANG WAY" will they ever see the light.

Oh what a glorious night....we have them on the run and they don't even know it yet!!!!

Keep up the good work all and keep having fun boating despite your irreverent acts in the face of the "perfect crowd"....hail to the semi-inebriated King Neptune....hail to the Goddess of intentionally made wake, hail to the wizard of soldered connections...oh what the hail...time for happy hour and a few more miles till the destination....

please don't make me send a anti-holier than thou tech out there to inspect...I trust your...it "will do" attitude to keep you in the fold....be careful though..one tiny little exception from ABYC and you are dancing that fine line between being perfect and just one of us.

Till the chips fall wherever....

I did not come back over here voluntarily. I was sent for not having a proper ABYC approved trailer for my dinghy. This could be serious.

Just make sure on those other threads the "others" get a good shot to the ribs....

Does piloting a 42' GB only in reverse for about 2 miles from a restaurant under a bridge and then back into your slip at the marina at 1am in the morning on a dare count?

{Oh, wait, that couldn't have happened because everybody knows BW Velvet Drives have a weak reverse gear.)

Or how about saying screw the whole "which anchor is best" debate and just beaching it?
