    Prototype for a new gen cable laying ship?

    Pros and cons of sailing to see the world vs other means.

    Nice bike Black. I grew up just south of Munich and have always lusted after one of these.

    I bet you'll only confuse it once.

    Interesting new DIY Catamaran build

    Ditto! I especially miss the pics and the air of contentment that emanated from them.

    The carbon fiber spittoon (sink?) is also worthy of admiration.

    Volvo folding props spinning above 8 knots under sail?

    Ayyy Carumba. That would provoke a reaction from the admiral. ...and me too, come to think of it!

    I still like the sticker my kids gave me a few years ago. It says:" Beers not bombs"

    I love those boats. My dad owned one a long time ago and remember it very well.

    Bottom paint for fresh water

    Bull, I'm not sure what bottom paint is on the boat at the moment. It is a hard black paint, that was there when we bought the boat in 2011. If I were to re-do the bottom I would use VC17 as that is what most boats use up here.

    Bottom paint for fresh water

    Granted we're in the water for barely 6 months and we use our boat quite often but I think how much stuff attaches to a boat is very much related to the amount of use a boat gets. I have yet to redo the bottom paint on my boat. I will when it comes out looking worse than the other boats at the club. Also we don't race but we raced our Shark years ago and never repainted the bottom on that either.

    There was a pretty good movie about the human computers during the early days of NASA. IIRC it was called "Hidden Figures". Well worth watching.
