    Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Boring Sunday here. Checked this thread for action. Not much. Decided to log on to my dog's Facebook and see what Rimas was up to. Not much other than some new proclamations of continuing his trip around the world and a few new photos. Looks pretty healthy. Good for him.

    Pain endurance indeed. My beer gut is one big bruise after trying to "not hike" off that lower cheese-grater life line. I have a photo....but you really don't want to see that.

    Who let those Rush Creek wankers on the boat in the background? :-)

    We have one named "Hotter Tuna" that cleans up on PHRF regularly here on Lake Ray Hubbard in Dallas. The only thing that competes with him are the Melges 24s when they race. Always thought a big Assy like the blue one above would help him out in the light sticky stuff. There was talk a few years ago about another one coming to the lake....or there was one already but not raced? I'm not sure. But yeah.

    Looking for Dead El Toro

    Guitar (and Mrs. Guitar) made it down here to Prunetucky around noon. Saddled up the Faux Toro and headed out towards the Whole Enchilada. Happy ending on this side. You will have to wait for the Yelp review on the WE. Looking forward to seeing the old girl tied up to what I think is a fine looking deck. Cheers!
  9. Headed out in the morning, should be there sometime before noon. 530.748.8880

    Looking for Dead El Toro

    Was incommunicado yesterday. (Could have been the fact I was overserved at the Moss Landing Inn - right next door to the Whole Enchilada - the night before.) Rendezvous to pick up the Faux El Toro scheduled for Friday. Stay tuned.

    Looking for Dead El Toro

    Hey Guitar, my dad is a bit of a hoarder. Has what I think is an El Toro leaning up against his house in the greater Prunedale/Castroville area of the Monterey bay. We were just getting ready to haul it off to the dump. It is yours if you are near and have a vehicle. Here are some photos:

    ....and expect a free tow out of the ocean so he could do it all over again.

    I'm thinking this John Hopper fellow is looking to get himself unfriended again!
