    Taking a break

    I'm taking a year off from sailing forums, so if anybody tries to PM me and there's no answer, it's nothing personal, and I'm not trying to be rude. I just won't get the message. If it's important, or you think it is, a couple of people, TimFordi550, D'Ranger, Bmiller, a couple of others who have sailed with me have my personal contact info. Cheers! CL

    That's a really handsome power boat. Why are you wearing foulies at the inside steering station? Out of curiosity, what is her cruising speed? Love the boat dog.

    Before You Throw Away that Turkey Carcass - Round 2

    I've asked her, she'll have to find time to write it down. She's never worked off anything written, just make's 'em the way her Grandma did.

    Before You Throw Away that Turkey Carcass - Round 2

    Love me a turkey sammich, especially with grape or cranberry jelly, but the best use of leftover turkey is green chile turkey enchiladas, flat New Mexico style, preferably with a runny yolk fried egg on top. Lots of hot green chile, and the sauce made with turkey stock from the carcass. Lucky to be married to one of the truly great practitioners of this rare art. A national treasure she is. Y'all do whatever you want, but it'll be second best, at best.

    Shaggy, those pics are wild. That's a helluva family cruising boat.

    I'd love a ride on something like that someday. That's got to be a lot of fun to sail.

    Checking the photo, we may have already finished, the boat in the photo is Geoff Davis's Aquila, he's owned her since the 1970's, #51. Argument was #22, owned at the time by Scott Manchester, before that by Jay Tetreault, and many years before that by Ronnie Boss. In your painting #8 is Osprey, currently owned by US Sen Sheldon Whitehouse, #11 is Coquina, owned for many years by Halsey Herreshoff. Most of my racing was on Musketeer, owned for many years by the Hunt family.

    That's intentional. She had done plenty of S-Boat paintings at the time, the focus of this one was the committee boat.

    As the photo shows, we're quite close to the finish, and the finish is quite close to the Herreshoff Museum mooring field. With that size lead we're just being prudent in setting up to gybe away after finishing. The favored pin end of the line is skewed away from the observer, you can see some of the boats behind us driving for that end. That boat was named Argument, the land in the background to the right is Poppasquash Point. I was boatless at the time, living in Texas, had come home for a visit and got invited aboard. In those days I think I guest crewed 3 consecutive years, on different boats, and was lucky to ride on the winner each year. Bull, thanks so much for the kind words. That painting is 24 years old now. Mom majored in sculpture and minored in illustration at Rhode Island School of Design, RISD. She is a decades long member of the Providence Art Club and has had art in galleries in Newport and Mystic in the past. At 89, she mainly paints for family and friends now, but her work is as good or better than ever. She paints every day. She has a terrific landscape of the Taos mountains on her easel now, then I think she is going to do a painting of Restive for me. Your compliment, coming from someone as talented as you, means a lot. Thanks.

    That would inhibit the fun. One of cool things about Jerry Milgram's cat ketch Cascade was that he could choose his crew for being female and attractive, not for their sailing creds. Helluva pimple coming out of that deckhouse.

    There are advantages to keeping a boat in Brooklin, such as being invited to drive someone else's Eggemoggin 47. This one is fitted with removable lifelines and stanchions. The stanchions just unscrew from threaded sockets.

    Finish of the Herreshoff S Class 75th Anniversary Regatta, August 27, 1994, off Bristol, RI. This is in our dining room in Midland, TX. I was on the winning boat that year, my mom, the artist, was on a spectator boat. and took the crappy,faded, old photo it's based on.

    Didn't notice first time, at about 5 seconds, in the second still shot, that's my boat to the left side of screen.
