    Bob Perry to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award

    I got to sail a Baba 30 yesterday in about 10-15, gusts to 20. My first ever Perryboat sail that I can recall. What a tidy, well-mannered little craft. Responsive and light on the helm, a pleasure to steer. Surprised me how close winded she was and hit 6+ frequently (might have been a little current boost) with the sheets cracked a bit. Well done Bob. you designed a little sweetheart.

    what kind of boat is that?

    Looks like an IOR bustle at the stern. Bet it also boasts copious volume in the bow.

    I admire that the trailer can apparently pull a trailer.

    US documentation Internet Scam

    I was suckered by this as well. I spent $150 for a certified copy, thinking the certified part might be useful someday in foreign waters. I did receive a renewed COD but if it's somehow certified it's very well disguised. I did see the third party disclaimer in minute print prior to placing my order. Same old shit...caveat emptor.

    I have suspected for some time that ReamUS suffers from clinical depression. What is often called "laziness" can also stem from lacking interest in life in general. The condition would explain his complete lack of energy as far as fixing anything on Mimsy, and his disinterest in even learning to sail. He is alone and lonely, begging and pleading for a female companion and does what he does because he has no options. He's sort of in a slow motion suicide mode. I feel sorry for the guy. OTOH, WTF do I know...

    Anyone else noticed ReamUS sits like a woman with his knees always together?

    Origami Boat Thread

    Brent, I gather you didn't go the correspondence school of yacht design route, so how did you obtain your undeniable skills? Did you serve an internship at some recognized naval architect or yacht designer's office? What formal training have you had?

    One of Brent's early efforts before he discovered steel.

    Bird Deterrants

    A rigger working on my boat suggested to a dock neighbor sticking one of those things that holds a pizza box lid off the contents to the top of his anchor light. Points up of course. Probably not very UV resistant so requiring frequent pizzas.
