This is the boat; in the water

I have gotten some feedback like, "hey there are no pictures of the boat". Well there are, you just gotta click on the "2007 posts" linky on the right hand side there.

For those of you who just wanna take a peek, here is the boat. these pics prove a number of things:

1) the boat floats

2) in moves under sail power

3) Graney pictures form the early 1990's don't scan well.

The Jacket

Sombody mentioned "those port and starboard jackets" and how corny the are. I was all like "Hey, I got one of those!" I wear it , really.

Here is the jacket, the sleeves are almost too short...... I don't know what happened to my neck in the picture, I usually have one. you can also tell that the jacket is original, circa 1975, check out the collar!

It's ok to laugh.

New Zealand!

I posted on another website ( that no one from New Zealand had viewed my blog. Well now they have! Woot!

And it was also pointed out in the comments that if everyone from the east coast of the US and Canada keep viewing then we will tip the whole map to the right.

World Famous!

I have added a small app to the blog provided by Without invading anyones privacy it tells us from where people have viewed our blog. It turns out we are world famous! check out the map.

*we do not keep anyone's information, nor do we proved informatioin to any third party. Just the map and only the map.

Sailing Doo-Dads

Recently on a web forum I post at someone asked about Sailing Doo-Dads. You know all the sailing crap you have around the house, that isn't part of Actually sailing. Well I got a family room full of it. Since the web page I post at doesn't allow uploading of images, I thought I would put them here.

keep in mind, I didn't clean or anything before I took the pics, but this gives you an Idea of all the sailing stuff in my basement. I'll give a short description of each picture

stuff by he CDs and DVDs
