    Squeaky, did it feel weird looking up and actually see a mast and sails?

    Yup..thanks TR. Sliding down in the rankings. I lost 75K boats today going more west...but I could not see pounding upwind a better option..It is easy to play armchair quarterback and make a bad guess. I may be on the wrong side of the Low now.

    Well chuso - I will warn you..be careful following me thru the gap..I lost 2,500 places stuck in 5 knots of breeze most of the day..I am just coming back up to speed. Maybe it will blow thru for you..You have already closed a lot of miles on me in the last couple hours. p.s.> When the hell is that flag gonna fall off in your avatar?!?!!?!?!?!?

    Back in the cheap seats....I got a little sidetracked with American Foosball and beer...almost bought the farm on the west coast of Chile...little late on the jibe! Gonna have to weave my way around these islands...lol!

    Wot Izit?

    I think crash and slick are right.. Farr windows of that 80's vintage in the cabin for sure, but I am gonna side with crash on the length..I didn't know there was a Farr33, but that looks about right...not big enough to be a Farr 37.

    Well..if the boat had rudders, some sort of proper steering system, and maybe an autopilot, he wouldn't have to hang on to the outboard tiller handle all day. All his own fault. I am really surprised the trip went as long as it did. I am still sure we'll find this POS on a beach somewhere abandoned and full of water. On to bigger and better things for Squeaky!!!

    In reality, I think Squeaks got off that POS just in time given the condition of the 'vessel'.

    Yeah..that happens when someone hijacks your thread with their own stuff.

    Ok, so I am just catching up!!!! I am surprised the engine is still running, but I see that the back fell off and is being held to the boat with some 3-strand nylon. Gomer was a bigger asshole off camera than on camera, Squeaky left him, she has been on a real sail boat with rudders, is now an Anarchist, and called him a DoucheCanoe? Holy Fuck. Go the Squeaks!!! Since I've noticed we are educating Squeaky on SA-isms we like to say from time to time, Squeaky, "Go the X", originally came from this boat, The Cone of Silence, and the phrase was "Go the Cone!" - This particular boat went like hell downwind with its big ass spinnakers.

    Thanks, TR. Always appreciate your updates! Of course, while I was in front of the back pack for a brief period, you were on weekend holiday, and no pics, so it must not have happened...LOL. Back to the grind, bitches!
