  1. I remember the first few times docking with twin rudders, a thrill when slow-moving boat does nothing with the tiller hard over! Like Jackdraw said, boat speed is your friend. I've learned to do a gentler version of the Captain Ron approach and go hard reverse right at the very end (you learn to move quickly with the fwd/reverse controls)

    Keel WTF...

    Underwater bull rail for improved anchoring?

    Why I still love New Orleans..

    One of my best memories during my 2015 visit is listening to Emily Estrella sing her heart out with the Faux Barrio Billionaires at The Maison on Frenchmen Street. Agreed the Halloween Parade is a most unique experience.

    Terrific. Another wave of debris just in time for the weekend. http://www.capitalgazette.com/news/environment/ac-cn-dam-junk-20180920-story.html#

    Funniest Interaction with Non Racers Thread

    You forgot to mention the fixed starting line means many of the starts at PCRC are with the kite up. Makes for some epic maneuvering behind the line.

    General fucking recall

    What's with boat on starboard tack at pin-end who's over with like 29 seconds to go? She's just sailing off into the sunset?

    The Zombie Fleet

    I'll let the Mainers (Mariners?) answer that one. I just took the stinking pic.

    The Zombie Fleet

    They get a ten foot tidal change 2x / day, so my guess is that it's riding the tide else the whole thing would be covered in seaweed.

    Oyster restoration

    That note about the invasive green crab got my attention, then I read on the Interwebz (so it must be true) that good ol' Callinectes sapidus in the Chesapeake seems to be keeping the green crabs at bay. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carcinus_maenas Gotta love blue crab, protector of oysters and tasty as well.

    Thanks for the tip, I just ordered a copy. We should see how many Anarchists can make it to the Oysterfest at St. Michael's on October 27 http://cbmm.org/events/annual-festivals-and-special-events/oysterfest/

    That "Aw Shucks" tool looked pretty slow and cumbersome, this shucker at Boothbay Lobster Wharf was doing his best keeping up with the buck-a-shuck line and seemed to be using the oyster knife more than we was using the tool. BTW, Boothbay harbor is gorgeous, got to do some sailing last week, as well as eat some oysters at Boothbay Lobster Wharf and Glidden Points from Mine Oyster. Nice brine taste compared to the Patty's Fatties I'm used to in Annapolis.
