So if Jaguars are girl magnets (which I might dispute them being so in today's world), what cars do girls drive that are guy magnets? Guess maybe driving my Porsche topless? I do like convertibles.

Wifey B: Well, I should certainly hope you don't plan on touching it. And I'm not about to jump on it....

The obvious answer is an S1 E-type Jaguar...with a proper rear end...

Wifey B: True, but my car is at home where it's warm and good weather to be topless. Meanwhile I'm in 52 degree weather. And the beaches here are Petroglyph, not sand. Certainly not South Beach. And the wildlife here is the non-human kind, not the same connotation as "wild life" might have in South Florida.

We all know what happens in 52 and below degree weather - can become a "pointed" discussion!

Wifey B: Yes, my hubby could confirm that. Guess Jenn, Tabitha and I are temperature gauges which can turn my hubby into a weathervane.

Sounds like storms are often experienced... at times it could even unfold into high velocity, ongoing Hurrycans, with Tornadic Twisther overrides!

Oh yeah, Trawlers... defined as: A boat all the above could happen upon!

Wifey B-if you are driving topless, a '63 Dodge Dart convertible is a guy magnet!

Ghostrider-if a little bit of fish/shrimp smell is all it takes to be a trawler, I am going to get with HopCar and start marketing spray cans of "True Trawler Aroma". Two squirts and everyone on the dock will know you have a "True Trawler!" We could get rich!

Wifey B: Boats are either to make money or have fun. Some are both. But for those talking here about Trawlers, they're simply for pleasure and names and labels don't mean a thing, it's just whatever floats your boat, whatever is enjoyable for you. Too many people get hung up on labels of boat or hulls or other nautical labels instead of just mating what they get to their own plans and desires. Either none of these are true trawlers or they all are trawlers or who gives a darn. Maybe one day I go fast and it's not a trawler and the next day slow and it is.

How about one of these?

Hydracraft

Hydracraft understood that combining many boats in one required not a single design but the capacity of a single boat to achieve many forms.

We thus developed a boat that can easily change hull shapes to fit all variables: The deep-V hull is excellent for deep-sea fishing and for ocean excursions. It is ideal for stability in rough water and for cutting through large waves, but it canít maneuver well in shallow water. The flat-bottom boat provides a stable platform on a still lake or in a shallow cove but would be dangerous for ocean use. And the multi-hull catamaran offers speed and fuel economy because of reduced surface frictional resistance.

Now the Hydracraft owner can have it all! A dial on the console enables the owner to select a Deep-V hull, a semi-V hull, a flat-bottom hull, or a catamaran multi-hull.

The transformation takes place within one minute and can be accomplished right on the water. The owner is thus provided with the specific, optimal hull for all boating activities and for the varying weather and surface conditions encountered on a single excursion.


Now doesn't that blow your mind....hehe

My hubby found that. They even have a video. Freaking something.....I just don't know the something...awesome, weird, insane? I don't know.

Er... you named them?

Racing back toward the topic...

I confess; we don't have a trawler. Not an FD one, not an SD one, not a "fast" one, not a duck, not a trawler yacht, not a passagemaker...

Even though we often run it like folks do who have trawlers. I guess that makes our avatar another example of NOT a trawler

I had a Jag-you-are 3.8S saloon car when I lived in England, and oddly didn't have too many electrical problems. Had a nice mahogany (I think) table that pulled out of the dash, perfect for the going-home pint... or short. 120 on the M1, only slightly slower on the A1. Had more engine, just usually ran out of road. Surprised I survived those years.

This thread has been an interesting read; I gather it's more important for folks who feel more comfortable when they can put all the widgets in the one (and only one) "right" (to them) slot.

Back to that naming thing... er... no... never mind...

Petroglyphs (also called rock engravings) are pictogram and logogram images created by removing part of a rock surface by incising, picking, carving, and abrading.

As in Petroglyph Beach State Historic Park

Wifey B: Boy, you dudes.....well, the good thing is we don't have to spend money on that. Although both Jenn and I have been asked many times if we've had it done....that's just plain rude.
