Internet Security and Firearms. Either way, helping you keep your muzzle clean. No extra charge.
I always wanted to shoot clay pigeons from the deck of my own yacht. Probably not a good idea in a sub.
I once came sort of close to buying a 1954 Stonington motorsailer (37', ketch rig, big Jimmy diesel) from the local Sea Scouts. Thought to restore it, head for the Welland Canal, down St. Lawrence and then the coast until I found a place what suited me (I was reading Jimmy Buffett at the time). Then I met my wife, and that went by the boards, but as it turned out I got a better deal (the lovely and puts-up-with-a-lot Mrs. Ken and two wonderful sons).
Yep, better way, but a 'tad'... Hell, a LOT more expensive!!! And there are other things down there to bump into that you can't see... :-)
"better in rough weather" doesn't begin to describe it.200ft under hurricane Isabella felt like being at periscope depth in moderately bad weather...The surface would have had us banging off the bulkheads.I would pick up one of these in a heartbeat if I had the money.
I've always thought that if I was single and unattached and lived near the salt water that i'd buy an old steel hull and fix it up into a nice, respectable man-cave type living area and just live on it. Especially in my line of work, back when i was single. When they were talking about re-locating me from Seattle to Corpus Christi, it occured to me that all I'd have to do is untie from the dock, head south, sneak through the Panama canal, head north, tie back onto another dock, and I wouldn't even have to "move" my stuff in order to get there. Tell me that wouldn't be a way to live, huh?
I always wanted my very own submarine.But looking at their literature, I get the impression that US Submarines has yet to actually build one.
Goober, for a while I wanted to buy a trawler and head south in the winter and north in the summer. But I'd be doing it alone, and so that dream alas remains just a dream.Joel, I think you're right. I've been following them for over a decade (old boss who was I think the last midshipman interviewed by Admiral Rickover).
