Show your boat not sailing

Recommended Posts

Since I don't have a drone or friends on boats with cameras, I figured I'd start a thread for those poor souls who're boat-proud but similarly deprived.

Here's ours in full lazy family cruising mode at the Rosario dock with sails tightly stowed in case of hurricane, dinghy at the ready to abandon ship, and hammock deployed in anger.IMG_20180808_094750.jpg.f910649ef47db900edb4004e18f0f7ba.jpg

My latest boat on delivery day - 5 minutes from home. A full winter's worth of projects awaits.

This is our boat in cruising mode at Friday Harbor.  This was a week after we bought it, and the first day that we sailed it.

IMG_1767-L.jpg

Sunshade deployed, no sail cover because the one that came with the boat didn't fit, and a dinghy tied up to the stern.

I took this one on the same trip from halfway up the mast while we were motoring.  I don't remember why I climbed the mast while underway, but it doesn't require a drone!

We entered a fog bank an hour after this photo was taken and were closer than was comfortable to a container ship.  AIS was installed later that evening...

Looks like they're trying to mate. Is that appropriate for sisters?

At least once a week I cry myself to sleep for selling this boat.

That reminds me of a scolding from my dad when I was about 17.  "You know it is going to cost you a lot more if you keep driving like that." says dad.  My response: "I know"

Didn't know it could take that long for a boom...  Money, sure, lots, but 4 months?

Not sailing cruising-style (dawn with all our friends at Cobourg harbour):

Not sailing racing-style (heading out for the start in Picton Bay - no excuse for the loose spin sheet):

LOL..."deep" is relative. At 4.5' my boat isn't usually considered deep but I sure can't beach the boat like that. :)

I sail my Hobie Cat to get on the beach. Oh- my Polynavicular Morbus is flaring up. I'll be purchasing a Dyer Dhow shortly, complete with sailing rig.  That'll get me onto the beach. ;)

Day one of last years cruise to the San Juans with our home marina in the background. The wind picked up a few hours later and the sail covers came off.

G'day Cruising,

She's definitely a cruiser when compared to her sister version :). The top pic is Fusion, the 2nd is a Pogo 40. IMG_0229_zpsdwivcvri.thumb.JPG.f1c0a6e12a6b1aa0c3efab3f0d26849d.JPG

Scanas and Frodo convinced me to put the kite up after this pic, we were merrily planing along with 22 pob.....good fun, except I had to stay sober.

I recently raced against Angelita, an 8mr built in 1928 and raced at the 1932 Olympics. Glad your willing to sacrifice for the rest of us.

Very cool, and thanks. I like the interior. While it's not a boat I'd be likely to own, I very much appreciate that you have a cool boat that speaks to you.

Kind of like the old drug running boat in the Florida Keys. They’d pump it out at night, blowtorch the deisel to melt the wax in the cylinders, fire it up and make the run. Sun up comes and the boat goes back down!

I’m about to take the plunge. Give me a few months and I too will be there as well. I sure do like the turbo’d Ensign. There was a large and active fleet on Lake St. Clair in MI where I grew up.
