I had one boat start as a "pleasure craft" or "recreational boat" and slowly evolve into a near full time job and a serious "displeasure craft"

This makes me so happy... Haha.

Manatees are a bit odd, to me. I wouldn't say they're particularly beautiful vessels, and the layout is a bit wrong for me. I don't like the idea of having the only steering station being so far removed from the deck. Between that and the lack of full walk around side decks, it doesn't seem very single hander friendly.

Having said that, I've felt nothing but warmth and affection for them. Whenever I see one I just wanna give it a noogie and play fetch with it or something. They're just so charming and full of character.

Fat bottomed girls make the rockin' world go round, after all.

Now you've done it. This thread will go a different direction.

It has been proven that women with big bottoms live longer than men who mention it.

Larry, over here it would be called a dugong…

Larry, just tell the bridge tender you're piloting a Bucky. When they ask what a Bucky is, just tell them it's like no other boat and they will know it when they see it.

I was looking for the thread that Marin was participating in regarding what is a trawler and what is not. I became so distraught that I have changed my avatar to reflect being a 'Pocket Boat" from "Pocket Trawler". Tragic, I thought the rhythm of the term had a nice mental picture. However, wishing to be politically correct, I have willingly made the change.
Now, the other choices are coming out. However "Pocket Recreation" has connotations that are disturbing to say the least. "Pocket Pleasure" sort of fits in that disturbing category,
Enough to vote Democrat!!

Think "pocket trawler" is actually a good fit for your boat.

What I have said all along...people in the know....know one when they see one.....

Always in agreement? No...but seemingly a lot more than the folks here in the "trawler" forum....
