Trying out different sail combo's, we could have added a single tuck main to the group but we were being lazy.

Ya, I gave up on Explorer quite some time ago. I use Chrome as my default browser - no issues that's I've seen.

Does a topsail schooner rigged Yamaha count?

Sure went to weather better than some other rigs I've owned.

 

Thanks for the recco, CL. I've been reluctant to let the evil empire into my shit. Guess I just sold my soul.

And finally, my best sailing picture ever, Mom and two younger bros on the H-28 for the first and only time ever I sailed with her. She's still kickin' it at 92, but isn't interested in sailing these days. I'm at her house now so it just felt natural to include her here.

Our old Aphrodite 101, in honor of Paul Elvstrom. Snapped unbeknownst to us by one of our marina mates. Embarrassing trim, but such a great boat to sail. Now being restored by a new owner.

Yesterday. Taken by one of the brave RC folks out there in a whaler in 35 knots.

Very nice! Did you win?

 

The race was abandoned shortly after this picture due to another boat dropping their rig (and I suspect the RC had had enough of bobbing about in the slop). We kept on going and popped the chute for a bit

Hmmm.....I was with the boat for almost 10 years from the previous management. Won everything that was there to win for a very long time.

As we used to say: Pretty boat; ugly crew!

 

Our man Sean Trews took that shot and just gave me the full file for not asking any monetary pay back. Good guy!

 

Yup, it was a full on snarly day. Easy mid 30's wind speed and probably up into the 40's in the puffs. It was trying to snow too. I was on the boat that lost it's rig. Big props to the crew getting it get it sorted very effectively and home with no one hurt.

I don't have one of our H-Boat yet, but here is our previous boat, a J22. We called her Redux, because she was our second J22. Really a sweet sailing boat.

It means you need to join a sailing club. At least for a year or two.

 

Like the pram, but don't you ever daydream about upgrading to an Alcort/AMF Puffer?

Nah..........only two reasons I have the thing:

1) Teach my grandkids to sail

 

2) Drink beer while slowly puttering around the harbor

TBT....Not my boat, but a MORC boat I helped the owner build in the late 70s. Wasn't launched until '90ish...owner had the almost done boat in storage while he put his wife thru school, then himself, then divorce. Sweetest sailing boat, one of my favorites. Had a pretty outstanding PHRF record, and we got 3rd in class in '96 MORC Internationals (oldest boat!) and won Florida Ocean Racing Association championship it's final year in '97. Boat was a rocket W-L in a breeze.

This Tancook Whaler (100 year old fishing design), sailing into Pulpit Harbor was something to watch.

 

31502588564_59f5e572d0_b.jpg

 

It nimbly tacked through the dog legged entrance just off the granite ledges.

 

31502588604_4d58942fbc_b.jpg

 

I've posted these before but in the interest of an easy sailing boat - that is pleasant to watch, this is a good one. At least in this guys hands. He sailed her in threading through the moored boats, and onto an anchor for the night(she has a small cabin forward).

 

31502581094_9c12f9c599_b.jpg

 

A pleasant break from the crisp white yachties that frequent this harbor in season, the owner/captain was so pleased when I ran these photos in an online article.

 

"I just wish I had worn one of my better hats", was his only criticism.

There sure are some pretty boats on the planet..........some damn pretty boats. I love my boat - suits us and our use wonderfully - but always am a little jealous of those classic boats. Just beautiful. I don't know if there is anything on the planet more beautiful and appealing to the eye than a boat.

 

Maybe a dog...................

 

Or a nice piece of freshly sanded Koa.........

 

Or a well cared for Fire Engine..........a Mack preferably..............with a US Flag flying proudly from the top.........

 

Or...............

 

never mind.............

Can someone tell me, in the simplest possible terms, how to post a picture currently languishing in an email folder? I would really appreciate it.

quickest, upload to imgur.com (you can keep it private rather than share) copy the link, click on the image icon in the forum message toolbar, and paste the imgur link here.

(There are better sites for photos, but I find imgur a quick and dirty solution)

Markus - it's usually best to put the photo on some public sharing site, like photobucket.

 

Then you can link to it; there's a photograph icon in the edit toolbar that helps with that...

Save the picture out of the email to some place where you can find it again.

 

Alternate to the above, you can upload to SA. At the top right of this page, click on your username to display a menu, and click on Gallery. At Gallery, click on an album name (don't know if you have to add one). Top rightish, there is a "upload", then find the "choose file" and "upload". Then click "review" and finally "publish". To put in a post, choose "My Media:, then "Gallery".

That's a very Tasmanian name.

Unfortunately I can't find the beer down here, they used to own one of our breweries, Boags, but sold out a while ago ....

 

Still, if the boat is named after an archangel and a beer there is no way I would be brave enough to change it.

I was worried that it would be a really cold and windless day, but the sun came out, the temperature rose, and the wind picked up a little bit. We had a great day on the water and it was nice to have our crew back for 2017.

That is a great photo only slightly marred by the fuel tanks on deck.

 

Perhaps one day a great designer will emerge with a better solution to the fuel problem.

It's not a design problem, it's a psychology problem. You could fill the boat with diesel up to the floorboards but when you think about pointing the nose across an ocean, there's always room for more fuel on deck.

True to be sure, but in this case the next fuel stop was about 2800 NM distant, and the route goes through the ITCZ. And, that Crealock carries much less fuel than some of the more modern boats. I think a few jerry cans can be excused in this case.
