    PNM

    If I get $40 for the folding thing I'll put it on your pay-pal. I did a deep u-tube dive on KTL last night..again.

    PNM

    Somebody is coming by tonight to look a the fold-a-boat (needs some work). Also free. Under the cover of darkness as us pushes tend toward the shadows and low places. I could be below 90' before Monday.

    PNM

    I'm late to this party. Have reduced my PNM by 4 boats totaling 48' in the last 12 months. Added only 1 at 11' Hoovering just below 100' now. These needle exchange programs really are helping. I gave away a perfectly good boat today for free to a bloke who wanted to take his wife fishing.

    New metal promises to replace steel

    I know 3 guys and a dog that can frame a 800 SF house in a day.

    Summer cruising San Juan Islands

    It's still staggeringly beautiful even with the motor running.

    New imoca boats

    Alex claims not to be a boat breaker. He said in a Clean interview that his run of less failure in resent years is due to better shore prep and learning the life cycle of the components involved, not any change in the way he sails. If you are in the vendee to win, you have little choice but to send it all the time. The other guy will.

    Old man in shit box goes sailing in cold place

    I funny you say that. I have only ever sailed on Cats a Tri's for any passages of note. When I get on a mono bigger than a skiff I can't handle the motion and then a gust hits and it tips over instead of speeding up. YMMV Sure are a bitch to park though. Dylan, that's another great video. Boy, can you ever capture the feel of a place on film.

    Super Foilers

    It seems like the fleet has got better since Adelaide. Tactics get harder the faster a boat goes. Trying to guess laylines going downwind on apparent wind boats is hard. Having to weight tactical option in a couple of seconds is hard. These things are hard to sail. Super physical. A little dangerous. Perfect for professional athletes. That's who modern pro sailors are right, athletes. I also love the slow speed chase of 4KSB where you can tack on every shift etc but times change. If foiling is the future of the very top of the sport then that's a cool future.

    VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Winston Churchill once told me to never drop names in casual conversation.

    Not cruel, just indifferent.

    AC36 - The Venue

    I haven't read to deep into the details of the soils contamination on the tank sight or read any test wells data. But as cleaning up sites like this and tank and underground pipe removal is my families stock and trade I would offer this. If Stolhaven gets to walk away with 6M and a guaranteed of no future liability for environmental cleanup then that will be there pound of flesh.

    Suggestions? Sell carbon mast, sails, boom, etc

    It's a good thing then that I don't have a M32.
