Oh Great! Now You Have To Be A Mathematician To Make A Dumb Comment On Woody Boater.

Remember back in the day when you were in grade school, and were failing math? You told your parents you wont need math anyway, cause your gonna spend all day on web sites and varnish boats…. Well, sorry.. Ya know need to have a degree from MIT to just make a comment on Woody boater. Oh and yes, I had to google mathematician. Anyway, you ask.. Why? Is this some sort of sick leave no Woody boater behind thing? Ya see. for the past three days Woody boater has crashed. The reason. SPAM! That’s right. Up to 1000 a day, that come in waves. Huge comments you never see. But when they all come in at once. It breaks the server. A friek’n cloud server. It can handle big stuff. So you may need to pull out your calculator before you comment. The simple math problem has in one day solved the issue.

I think, once you fill it in you may be able to stay on. Not sure, its new. This should also help speed up loading time. Something some of you have been complaining about. Thanks again, for commenting. For those of you that get stumped, sorry if you and Jethro never made it past the 6th grade.

My hero, Jethro! The smartest man I know.

    Why does the guy at the helm in the header shot look like he’s pissed of at you? Did he flunk the math exam?

    Can we alternately switch subjects occasionally with Biology? Ask “What is a Ctenophora?” Math is not a strong point here, I still have trouble figuring out how many gallons I have left in the gas tank. Hmm if I use 12 gal/hour and I run 2 min before my fuel filter clogs how many gallons of premium do I put in my old explorer before I have to worry about pre-ingnition. Solve for X.

      Hey Rick –

      Ask Mike M and Paul H about those problematic fuel numbers as they now have a “system” !

        Free case of beer for every fill-up from a chase boat?

        This math feels like the old flash cards from elementary school. I really should have finished 6th grade.

    How about boat related math?

    “That cool cruiser on blocks would be worth $10,000 after restoration and could be mostly restored for $200,000. How much can you pay the marina owner for the hull and still say you got a good deal?”

    “Mahogony is selling for $7 a board foot. Your current project boat needs 350 board feet. What will your total materials cost be including plywood, 5200, CPES, copper bottom paint, stain, varnish, thinners, fasteners, sandpaper, brushes, and protective gear?”

      Also at what percentage decrease of your bank account does your spouse notice and/or contacts a lawyer?

      (OOOOO, now I get to do subtraction to post.)

    Today my new greavette motor Goes to the dyno…Those numbers I WANT to see.
    But, then I’ll have to figure out what it cost to build, divided by the increase in HP, add the installation costs, factor the cost I’ll tell my wife, budget for what she’ll buy to offset the spending balance and when it’s done we’ll look at performance numbers….

    IFAIK math has always been a part of woodyboating.
    It’s how you spin the answers that count!

    Finally a story for my husband, a mathematician! He could care less about boats. He doesn’t understand why the fenders have to be taken in and out, but he has finally learned how to throw lines to people on the dock.

    I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one with a spouse that does not understand “boating”!

    As long as we don’t revisit calculus, I’ll be OK. Basic math, geometry and algebra make sense, but math at the higher levels is more like a religion – you either believe it or you don’t. In math’s case, you either work like exponential Hell to believe it, or wind up in integration Hell for not believing.

    The only formula I know is that the motion of the ocean is directly proportional to the mass of the ass.

    With all of this talk about cookies I have always wondered. “Can vegitarians eat animal crackers?”
    Just sayin”.

    Does spam float? I don’t know. There must be a displacement formula. It would be a danger to navigation.
