    COVID Dreaming

    I dreamt that I was running barefoot through a field of breasts.

    Don't be a diesel mechanics, be a sailor...

    We'll just have to disagree on this. I'm NOT going down a political road with you in this forum. You, and some others here, seem to relish contentious political discussions. Those belong in PA.

    Don't be a diesel mechanics, be a sailor...

    A friend who lobsters out of IAH has a 1960's vintage Cat diesel in his boat. Always gets him out and back. I run a lot of oil wells in remote locations off casinghead gas with single cylinder gas engines. Spark is via magneto. Giant flywheels. These things run at low (300-500) rpm. A continuous run, just adding oil, of 3-5 years is not unusual, then you're usually due for rings. I have engines in service that were built in the 1950s and still make me money every day. As to battery technology, who knows? The desire for a particular technology guarantees only that people will be willing to spend money on it, not that it will be realized. If throwing money at a problem guaranteed its solution, there would be no poverty and we would be driving fusion powered cars.

    Daysailer for old people

    You're a wise man, but the heart is not always wise. Boats are, for me, objects of lust and passion. Owning a boat makes me happy. I'd rather be happy than rich. I'd actually put homes in that category for many people.

    I’m a member of the Vinalhaven Land Trust. They maintain wonderful trails open to the public.

    Camona Island - Utsalady Mooring Buoys

    I'd need it (Scotch) on an SJ24. Used to race on one in my youth, and at 6'3" that was a pain machine. Probably fine at the helm. Fun sailing boat. I think the last time I was on it was the day I heard the skipper utter those words every sailor longs to hear - "Geez, we might sink."

    A curtain would be simple for light. For sound, ask @Tucky for his secret to silent coffe making in the AM. The guy is a ghost.

    Ski Season 20-21

    We spent pre- Christmas thru New Years in Taos. Good top to bottom coverage, very, very few people. Really enjoyable stuff. Great turns in the steep trees. We came home and got lucky with Covid shots for me and the bride. Plan to do 4-5 days next weekend. We bought season passes again and hopefully will get to use them a lot. CMH cancelled our heli trips for this season, we reserved the same weeks next year.

    What Have You Done Today?

    Cleaned my desk. Found 3 -$100 gift cards and a $7000 check from October. Beth made the worlds best green chile cheeseburgers for supper with a very nice Pinot noir.

    But. It's a tin can. *facepalm*

    Peasants. They keep the platinum cans in back.

    American Dumbass

    No. No, not at all. It saddens me because insults, open or subtle, harden feelings amongst people who should all be friends.

    Order of Vaccination

    We got shots this morning, shot #1 of Moderna.

    Yeah, that has cockpit coaming forward of the mast that I don't see in KK's pic. Great looking boat.

    I agree, but it seemed to be moored off Northeast Harbor. They race Luders 16's and IOD's. That Focus does look close. Tofinou 7?

    Do you have another angle? I want to say IOD but the bow seems wrong.
