    Buying Hydroptere, fastest ocean going trimaran

    Oops, sorry gang. Hate to be the guy putting bad info on the internet. There was something in Raccoon Straight with a large black square top sail. Perhaps a Mod 70? Cannot get there today as I am down on my boat in Marina Del Rey. Will try to provide pics later.

    Too late she was sailing on the bay today ( Saturday). I just did not know what boat it was. She was a long way off I Racoon Straight and it was kind of foggy too. Sorry no Pics. Sail looked good though.

    Annapolis "Performance" Sailing - No More-ish!

    This is one of the reasons I never buy anything off Amazon. The other is I think Jeff Bezos is a dick.

    Yachts Too Far From Water

    That's a much better place for a boat.

    HH seems to be shit recently too. Several years back I bought some of their gear, and it seemed to be top notch and I actually still wear it regularly. Lately all I see from them is the crew jacket and really cheap duffels at cheap outlet malls.

    I am guessing he will need to be towed into a port when he arrives.

    Ha, you beat me to it. I was going to suggest that this looks like competition for Rimas. Old hat now that its made it to the front page.

    Gary W Mull

    Here is a short video of a Mull 30 "The Shadow" racing last year. This is the same crew that campaigned Pretty Penny before acquiring The Shadow. .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92QOj9N4gPA

    Usually epaulettes, a pilots license and a DC-8 parked out on the ramp are required to make that plan work.
  13. I have watched a boat painter from a well known yard toss the contents of anti fouling paint bucket into the San Rafael canal on SF Bay at the end of the day. It was the old red copper stuff. I was not too impressed with the practice at the time as I occasionally swam in the canal to retrieve lost tools. This was about 1981 and the yard owner and the painter are long gone so what are ya gonna do about it?
  14. Ha they are using this same strategy on the Golden Gate Bridge. They subsidize Ferry service with bridge tolls in order to get less people to drive across the bridge. My old mans pet peve was that they originally said they would stop charging bridge tolls once the construction cost was paid off.

    Is wearing sunglasses cool?

    Hell yes they are cool, almost as cool as red Mt Gay rum hats! I have heard this about cheap sunglasses for decades so I asked my eye doc about this just the other day. He said even cheap sunglasses offer a pretty good level of protection as plastic filters out UV. He said you just cannot see very well out of shitty glasses.
