Re: CanCan -SOLD- North! To Alaska...

Yeah, for half of the sale check, I can get a tricked out piece of Tupperware... Actually, I may convert the proceeds from the sale into a carwash in order to further my plans of world domination....

There are social entitlement programs for the homeless... Why not for us boatless types too?

Beam for casual towing?

Silly rookie question.... Being accustomed to big boats that require a travelift to remove from the water, I find myself lacking knowledge when it comes to towing.... What's the widest dimension that can be towed inter/intrastate here in the good ol' USA? Most of the "trailerable" boats I'm looking ...

Re: SPOT locator

Spot is great but it's not a replacement for epirbs, larger boats, common sense and good seamanship. I'm seeing too many folks here in OR taking little boats built for river and estuary use way too far offshore.

Watching this guy work his little portable wire machine actually makes me wonder just how tough alloy welding is and if it's something I ought to be doing myself...

Any comments on length and steepness of the learning curve? How about initial investment?
