    Seeking Cabo San Lucas info

    Not sure if this is the right forum. How much is a slip (full year) in Cabo? How hard is it to get a slip? Considering something like a 38 Mediterranean in the next 2-4 months, and living down there for a year or two. Cabo prices almost American like, right? Getting too stupid down there...

    Traditional msg board colors?

    Do many still use the traditional blood red msg board colors? If so, have you gotten to the point where you almost won't read certain threads that people always post in black or blue letters? Just curious.

    Something you don't want to find.

    Something you don't want to find in your boat mounted under the engine in the bilge. It serves no purpose now (seems it was needed in the Loran days). Needless to say, it won't be replaced.

    Good ole B-52

    An F-111 was flying escort with a B-52 and generally making a nuisance of himself by flying rolls around the lumbering old bomber. The message for the B-52 crew was, "Anything you can do, I can do better." Not to be outdone, the bomber pilot announced that he would rise to the...
