    We get back from the 11 day road trip that included our 50th anniversary (and some other very cool stuff) and what does SWMBO want to do................. So despite the ridiculously low tide we did......... FRANCIS is actually floating in this picture complete with her ten foot draft.

    Just looked his bio. Think he might know where he is, but if not he was only doing a few k's so if hasn't gybed by now he has not got long left before he will be looking for some wheels. Istvan Kopar, a Hungarian-born American, is a professional sailor and U.S. Coast Guard-licensed captain who has logged more than 60,000 nautical miles sailing solo. His proudest accomplishment to date was his solo one-stop circumnavigation in 1990-1991 without the aid of GPS. He relied on a sextant, manual chart plotting, and weather forecasts broadcast in Morse code. Sailing a 31-foot boat that he had Vgloss himself, Istvan completed the voyage in record time for the size of his yacht. Istvan also skippered the winning yacht in the 1996/97 Hong Kong Challenge around the world yacht race. He was among the top finishers in the 1992 America 500-Columbus Transatlantic Race, and won the Kapry’s Trophy in the 1995 Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC).

    I hope Kopar knows where he is being only a few miles off the coast with a NE up his arse and is just chasing a gybe layline to slide down the coast with. Sunrise is still 2 hours off and no lights on that part of a very inhospitable rocky coastline that is largely National Park and not much else. In front of him is the village Tenesar which sits very close to the shoreline but is really only a ghost town giving off no light, though on a Sunday there might be a few weekender types.

    Simple answer is no, there is no place. Here is some artwork http://www.voilesetvoiliers.com/course-regate/croquis-de-famille-pour-la-noce-au-long-cours/ Some of the skippers have websites of varying usefulness, some have been posted above in this thread. Some have facebook pages Google with skippers name that you are interested in and GGR or Golden Globe usually produces results. If you do find a place please share

    Agree it is a lot of work. What I don't understand is why the plans can't drawn up on Cad (or similar) and then use CNC machine to cut out those frame templates .. or even better someone can volunteer to do it for him ? 3R

    Obama was the head of the Democratic Party, so of course he made speeches supporting Hillary. He just refused to use national security secrets and methods to support a political agenda, unlike the GOPs such as Nunes. There are, as you assert, no links between Trump and Russians except for Paul Manafort. And Jared Kushner meeting with Russian agents. And forgetting about it. And Michael Flynn meeting with Russians. And lying about it. And Secretary Ross was in charge of the Russian oligarch savings & loan. And Trump modified the RNC platform to omit support for sanctions. And Don Trump Jr said “I love it!” And Eric Prince met with Russians in the Seychelles, & the NRA took Russian rubles and then funded Trumps Campaign. And Trump asked the Russians to look for Clinton emails. And they did so, that same day! Other than that and a few innacurate or falsified National Security documents there are NO LINKS between Trump & the Russians. The lie is holding up just fine on FOX News and Breitbart. Just st the fake news is reporting it. Ya know, the Journal, the Times, NPR, BBC. Those enemies of the state.

    Makes me think that the whole collusion thing is a dead end and he fears the blowback will be that this whole mess was a vendetta against Trump. So the Russian indictments are their way of saying there was no collusion but the investigation was useful anyway. Personally I think from my understanding of the forensic evidence that it was not Russians. There were just too many clues. It would be like investigating a professional hit and finding the killer left his wallet in kitchen beside a glass he had a drink from and that he called his wife from the victim's cell phone after using the victim's computer to log into his uber account to order a car and left it signed in and then asks the victim's Amazon Alexa Echo to place an order on his prime account for delivery to his home address. And when a neighbor knocks saying they heard a sound he opens the door to say all is good and by the way I'm Dimitri Volkof Russian intelligence Service. If proxied cutouts and phishing attacks were so easy to solve then why are the hackers of credit databases and film companies and customer lists rarely if ever caught? So I'm to believe the Russian state Intelligence agency is dumber than an unemployed Ukrainian hacker on a 15 year old pc running Windows ME? Don't buy it and never have. It is pretty obvious to me that they drew a bunch of dots and and dropped a pot of spaghetti on it saying "look at all the connections." They said in the same announcement we have to apprehend the indicted Russians before it can proceed. That will never happen. They know full well their BS will never be dissected in a court.

    He did lots. Are you saying he did not work hard to help Hillary win. How many times did he stand at a lectern at the WH and make a political speach with the full weight of the presidency behind him? I can't see why going after the russians for cyber crimes would bother any Trump supporter. What bothers them is this lie that Trump was a co conspirator in those crimes with ZERO evidence other than a random list of links between US businessmen and Russian businessmen. Which by the way is not a crime and every day thousands of Americans engage in commerce with thousands of Russians. Every significant business that exports to operates internationally probably have dealings and connections to Russia. And good story teller could make such links look conspiratorial given the mainstream media and bad actors in the deep state helping sell the lie

    Seriously dude. Why is this a good piece? Because it fits your preconceived bias? A GOOD piece does not contain bull shit like this. "even though Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein briefed President Trump on the coming action before the Leaker in Chief left town, the matter held until Rosenstein disclosed it"
