    a4 aok ?

    When we added a code zero on our Sydney 36, ORR did indeed penalize us. Not much, but we still took a hit. Did that change?

    No, but the new toy has plenty of carbon pointing upward and outward.

    I hear there's something new coming to town that might shakes things up a bit...

    Coolboats to admire

    I'll take one, please. Can someone start a GoFundMe account for me?

    The Lumbo requires more maintenance than I want to do these days. I like what I see of the daysailer in the foreground. Grandma and Grandpa out for a sail on a sunny day. Anyone know what it is?

    When do you just fucking Give Up ?

    GSR is perfectly capable of defending himself, especially with the use of prose. However, if anyone deserves good sailing karma it's him. First to show up, first to crawl into an otherwise inaccessible space with a wrench, first on the starting line, first to advocate NOT doing something stupid on the course, and first place results calling tactics and trimming the main. Now, back to the mast on the Megabyte...

    Any carbon termites up where you live?

    Do they sell any other car brand besides Subaru in Western Washington? Witness to the police: he was wearing either a Patagonia or North Face fleece jacket and driving a white Subaru Outback northbound on I-5 toward Everett. Police: That narrows it down; we'll get right on the case (drive off in the other direction).

    Adding the sprit to the B25 sorta-kinda makes it a Left Coast Dart. I think they'll find it a lot of fun and simple as it eliminates the need for the hero bowman on the pointy end of a light boat. Jibes are easy- let off one sheet and pull in the other. The boat will reach at some impressive speeds and by easing the tack line, it will run fairly deep as well. All in all, it's a good set up. The B25 with the asymmetrical should be very competitive in San Diego Bay.

    Which yard is that?

    Hurricane Lane -- Keep A Weather Eye Out Hawaii

    Yep- the outer edge of the rain band is here. Funny who people "take care" of their boats. Across from mine, is a depilated, unseaworthy piece of crap (that I have complained about for years). Someone tied a brand new bow line to the dock cleat. Had they walked around the side of the boat, they would have noticed that the cabin port, about 2x3 feet) is in pieces on the side deck. Pieces of ammunition aimed at my boat. I took those away and did the best I could to cover the port with a garbage bag. With the rain we're hearing about, that boat is headed to the bottom... I'd say I hope so but I don't want to be mean. Others have surf board laying on their decks, pieces of wood on the docks, you name it. Projectiles that can be launched into surrounding vessels, the swimming pool, the dining room. The only safe place is behind the bar. I suspect we'll have at least a couple of denizens"hunkering down" in the bar, which is BYOB because WYC is closed. For those folks, there's no place like home!

    Plus a king tide along with the swell surge. I've tied the boats to the dock as best I can. I can't do anything about tying the docks to the ground.

    Any boat in the Lahaina roadstead will be lost if Maui gets hit.
  14. What do you think about surge/swell in the Waikiki Yacht Club area of the Ala Wai?  Any concerns?  I have our boats doubled up but can't do much if the docks decided to go walkabout.

      Thanks.  I can do and have done a lot for the boats.  I can't do much about the docks.  Where's your boat moored?

      My boat is in Kewalos. Surge is just starting to pick up here.

      Glad you've got the boats made up. It is what it is. Hopefully, it's just an exercise. We'll know by Sunday...

      I live at Harbor Court, overlooking HH.  It is already bumping outside Keehi Lagoon more than I've seen since we moved here twenty years ago.  The last container ship-Pasha- left about a half hour ago.  All Coast Guard assets are gone, except for the RIBS. The spill cleanup ship and barge has left.  Most tugs are gone; a few fish boats remain, perhaps due to problems.  Headed to WYC in a few minutes to double-check things.

      Actually, predicting this is kind of easy: listen to Guy Hagi.  Whatever he says, it's going to be the opposite.

    Dude steals a plane

    Air National Guard commander told me that they always have a ready-five plane. Is that not universal for land based air defense US military?
