that actually looks like a really good deal, just keep in mind you're probably going to have to pay a minimum of 500 bucks to have it put in the water, plus any back dock fees.

Matt - yeah, that's a good point. There's a few boats in this area right now that are priced below $500 but "free" seemed worth sharing.

I'm only in the research phase and trying to decide if I want to beg friends who have a trailer hitch and/or space I can park the thing to work on it, or if I want to buy something already in the water... which adds about $5,000 to the price!

There was a fiberglass ~20ft. sailboat a couple weeks ago for $150 and I figured if I got 5 friends to chip in we could just pick it up and carry it into the water then fuck around. Probably be the best $25 any of us would have spent and cheaper than sailing lessons. The only problem would be what to do with it if it DIDN'T sink lol.

Honestly, if I was serious about boat living/travel I would jump on that listing, since it's got a motor and most things you would need, even paying 500-1000 in dock fees and getting it in the water it would still be a total steal.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Last post, but, is it bad that I sometimes inhale rubbing alcohol fumes to relieve tension?

Cause every now and then I'll like, inhale a bit, and then I feel it hit me in my brain, and I just feel, perked up and less stressed.

lol it's a terrible idea, I know.
Georgia is now lockdown. Let's see if my dumbass neighbors will go out for their drugs.

This dumpster was amazing;I'd often found throwaways of the big liter bottles they ship syrup with codiene to pharmacies in. Because of the consistency of it there would always be an ounce or two in the bottle they didnt get out. I'd get 2 or 3, spatula scrape out the good, make some szrrrp, put on DJ screw and get faded. :)
