looks like it is in rough shape but I can't find a price tag so it must be free, I think it will fit
This sort of thing is why you gotta trust the guy driving when you go up the mast.
Don't smoke "spice." It is NOT synthetic weed.
She'll be fine, Cap, just throw me some rip-stop!
No, the mast goes on the boat, not the mark.
This is going to help your rating.
"how to fix windex without bosun's chair"
See?? I told you this is where we left it last year! Don't worry. I bought some white duck tape. Fuc*ing yard charges too much for storage anyway. We'll leave the whole boat here in a few months & viola!!
Yes Cap we caught the Osprey alright! Got the nest too!
Yeah - and he hasn't realised the boat isn't under him anymore. Probably still calling for more ease in the halyards...
dude, what the hell? thats my rig.
No... really honey... We're fine.
Yeah, they definitely need to change this bulb.
Let's wait until dark to go back to the yacht club....
Laser sailors as crew. Don't know about shrouds. Doh! Write that down for next time.
do you know how much those battens are?
"I don't think the top batten needs anymore tension."
"Wheres the light switch?"
Local champion J105 sailors take aim at mastering a new class.
Been there, done that....
only driving twice though
Ohhhh...... Ohhhh Dear.....
Fix it anarchy
The top fell off
New Mast and Rigging $6000.
Dacron Main and Head Sails $7000.
Having a great story to tell back at the Yacht Club bar.
Norwegian Albin Express if i recall correctly.
One of the biggest benefits of fixed concrete/iron marks: no need to protest if parts of the rig touches the mark
Honey - I'll be home sooner than expected. Oh John? Nope he's going to be late can you let his wife know? Thanks
UHH, that test sail went well, but I don't think
I'll buy it....
Its still good!... It's still good!
but... but... but.... i was on starboard, the pole was on port!?!?!?
Dude...any sign of that story Clean promised us up there?
Just a little more off the leech on this one panel and this sail will be fast as shit!
I said "duck the pole" not "dip the pole"!
These aids are not intended to assist in navigation, but rather to alert the vessel operator to a special feature or area.
Tying up to or hanging on to any navigation buoy or beacon is prohibited.
Another superb bowman... Going above and beyond to keep the sail out of the water whilst fixing another cockpit fuckup.
Don't give up. There are still three boats behind us. I don't want to be DFL
I said keep the BOAT under the sails. Not the Mark!...
"Epic fail of the grandest proportions.!" Don't fall asleep at the wheel...
I said put twist in the main, NOT THE MAST!!!
I called "Starboard"!
Looks like the team from Kzahkstan is having a little trouble at the mark!!
No matter how hard you try.. You can't sail a mark..
Skipper: Harry, no! Don't look at the light!
Crew: I-can't-help-it. It's-so-beautiful.
My apologies to Bugs Life
I know my wallet's here somewhere
Helping the Coasties with there aids to navigation!
I think the next inspection was next week! Oooops!
Just like the brochure said: it's a snap to unstep the mast!
So you removed main sail, mast, and one crew member to reduce weight... that'll cost you 9 sec/mile.
Well, it did make doing a 360 a lot easier, but I still say the WHOLE BOAT has to do 360. Where's the new rule book.
Skip I think the d sail is in order.
duck tape please
Why the hell can't they put the gin pole back where it belongs!
I told you I could touch the mark.
whatever you do
Do Not cover the Photo-Eye That light is 600v of non GFI
"I said dip the pole not hit the pole"
I watched Team NZ crash their wingmast into stuff the other day on facebook, made them foil and go fast, Think this is how they did it...
- You bought the insurance for this thing, right?
- S#!t .
Damn if that GPS thingy wasn't spot on
I'll send it to the loft overnight and they'll have it patched up in time to race tomorrow...
Hey mate, that sail and mast you got there, what's it rate ? I've been looking for ones just like it........
Cut the number off and lets get the hell out of here!
5 down skip, yep another 5 "we going to nail this rounding"
I'll explain it again... THAT was masthead rig... THIS is fractional rig.
I'm Hooked on this here Sailing Sport Jimbo
If we hurry, we can get out of here before anyone takes some pictures and posts on Sailing Anarchy...Shit.
"we going to nail this rounding"
"we going to nail this rounding"
Who called for the samurai douse?
OK, Ive got the first reef in, come and get me...
"Hey, honey, could you throw me a knife? There's one downstairs by the living room, probably in the kitchen."
She took the good half...
"Mast to beam!!!"
Next time, i'll set the fricking waypoints myself! Skipper's a total newb.
Go up the mast he said...Check the windex he said...It will be easy he said....DOH!!!!!
Like my new anchor light!
That is priceless.
Just one more turn and I'll have this sail unwrapped!!
I think it's time to have my eyes checked again !!
Can ye tell what it is yet?
Now that I have switched off the light, the others will sure miss the mark he he
This exact thing happened in Newport Harbor about a year ago, except the boat was around 36-feet.
There was some breeze that day (I forget, but probably around 12 knots) and we spotted this boat earlier motoring around with sails furled. They were flailing about and looked like they might crash into anything at any moment. It looked like the skipper's first time driving any boat, anywhere, ever.
Later we saw them seriously tangled with the day beacon off Bay Island, mast broken, main torn, stuck, unable to get free. Eventually the Harbor Patrol was able to free them. The day beacon is still mangled over a year later.
Well fuck me, I think we have seriously screwed the pooch this time. You going to tell her or do you want me too?
The sail makers are getting more & more desperate to provide on the water service ...
I said take the light to starboard! I didn;t mean TAKE the light to starboard!!
Express delivery of light maintenance crew
Yo Skipper! Your sails are dry, you can store them in their bags...
Goddamn those Russki submarines, they just pop up when you least expect them!
Don't go anywhere! I'll be right back with some help.
Sorry, I know I said take the mark as close as you can but ...
What's it rate?
Honey, I told you there was a streetlamp in the lake!
New sails - $5k
New mast and rigging - $15k
Crew liability claim - $250k
One missed streetlamp - Priceless
Just peel the fucking numbers off and lets go, before anybody sees us!
Dude! Ease the main, I can totally unhook this.
Trim the mainsheet a little more.
When 'enter wide, exit close' is taken too literally
Bitch can have the boat. I'm happy right here.
That was a great ride on our new sailboat.
Now let's go buy a Lamborghini
scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes scissors, concrete iron post crushes aluminum mast... Yep..That one I need to remember...
New Sponsor: Maker's Mark
5 minutes earlier:
Sure I know what I'm doing. I can sail us close enough to that mark to reach out and touch it.
I know this looks confusing but I can explain!
