No. I am not thinking that. I just asked where to watch some tutorial videos.

No. As far as I can tell, there aren't any pro handymen out here to be had. If there are, they're employed far from...

Question Anyone know a handyman course on Youtube?

So, I know most of you were holding wrenches before you could walk. Me? No. I had bad experiences with tools. Everything I touched usually broke, and I had no idea what I was doing. Then I got a...

No, that part of China is thousands of miles away. It's like criticizing Texans for the shit on the streets in San Francisco.

Took the boat for a long trip, from Wenzhou to Ruian, another city nearby. There is a kind of boat highway that goes there. It's about 17 miles and it took us about an hour and a half to get there...

This is the correct answer. What good is a super sekret fishing spot if you can't show it off to others? What else are you going to do with it? Keep it secret, keep it safe? How dull and boring! ...

I'm curious about how anything has been "stolen". To steal, one must be deprived of property. Are those fish in the ocean someone's property?

Literally nobody said that. You're making an argument that isn't present, fighting a straw man that you created.

That's an awfully hard, bitter, reductionist way to look at it. The reason we perform rituals and ceremonies is to bring meaning to our lives. When we make a big rigamarole about King Neptune, what...

It's a long process entailing beseeching King Neptune to strike the name from his roster and record the new one. Buy a lot of champagne and be prepared to share most of it with him.

The real question is: do you enjoy working on boats? If so, do it. If working on the boat is a chore, then absolutely not.

3 weeks ago it ran at 6000, when I started it up the next time it had lost ten percent of the power.


Just filled the tank with new gas, so it can't be that.

Yes, it has a wire that wraps around the spark plug.

Question Loss of RPM from 6000 to 5600 in a 15hp engine for no reason?

So I've had a lot of fun tooling around the canals in my little jonboat. Topped out at 20 knots with just me in it. Outstanding! I couldn't get it out on the water for 3 weeks or so, and when I...

Question Couldn't get tiller outboard in gear, mechanic replaced spark plug?

So the other day I was headed out for a cruise with a friend. I put the engine in reverse to back out of the mooring, and try to put it in forward gear. No dice. It won't shift. I pull and yank on...

Why on Earth would you use a morbid name like that?

I think it's a terrible name. Even if you are a coroner.

But why? Don't we call what you're advocating being an "Indian giver"?


But then you're not giving anything. You're selling boat rides. ;q

Does it really matter, though? Dude wants a tiny cabin cruiser. What's the smallest boat that qualifies? "Why" doesn't really enter into it. People are different and want lots of different...

Dontcha love posts that don't actually offer anything helpful or on-topic, but instead interrogate the OP to satisfy the aggressive curiosity of a bystander?

Yeah, this. I just don't understand how people who pay $300,000 cash for a boat can get angry about $50 worth of supplies. Like, if you're well-off enough to buy the boat and keep it running,...

No need to drop them off at the police station. Just dispose of them by popping them off at night. They bedazzle kids.

She's scared. She's giving full vent to her feelings. Probably no chance to let out her feelings like this in her daily life. Definitely not going to waste a chance like this.
