Personal Pics Thread?

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen one of these since my earliest days on the WBF but I was struck on another thread by Ed Lada's brave posting of a picture of himself and thought I'd do this because, A) after a few private interactions I thought I had a pretty good mental image of him and  2) How far off I was.

I know it's dangerous to put your shit out on the webs, so lets be kind. Sailing, general interest, glory days, whatever, let's see you faces! I'll shut it down if it gets nasty or if anyone objects. Merry Christmas!

I'm the geezer in the peachy t-shirt...

Looking back in time can be fun.
I expect many  of you to comment on me and the Ed in the second photo. Who would have thought that 20 years later we would have come together to create this place.

 

First:
Me at the age of about 20, being a sailmaker. 1979 - 1980. I used to repair all the Sewing Machines too. (zoom in and look at the wall.

Sedond:
The 1979 Area J representatives to the US Sailing Prince of Wales Nationals, L2R, Me (the Dawg), Scot (the Ed), Dave K (Deke)

pow79.thumb.jpg.ea2af656ca456032f92910c0ea6d353f.jpg

 

Third:
Fast forward 30 years and here I am sailing in the 2.4mR class as a disabled person in the 2011 Chicago NACC

You got me. I no longer wear the brace since I had that knee replaced.

I had an encounter this spring while anchored in Joe's Bay in the middle of Barkley Sound, west coast of Vancouver Island. There were about six boats there besides us, part of a cruising group from the same marina on the east side of the island, all in quite expensive newish boats. I was chatting over the stern to a group of kayakers from those boats, when another captain came over in his inflatable, looked us over, and asked if I was Ishmael. I was startled, but had to admit I was. I wasn't aware I was "famous". He claimed his name was Dick. Fuck, tracked down in the middle of nowhere.

Boomer's on the left, my wife is in the hat next to me, behind her is Jose Carumba, next to him is WHL, then Kim B and SWMBO, of course Jill & Bob Perry front and center.

Right in front is Dawn & Donn, aka Blackjenner. Red hat in back row is born2sail, Hawaiian shirt on right is VALIS and his wonderful wife. Steve, S/V Panope on right.

Edit: anyone not comfortable being ID'd let me know and I'll make this disappear.

I guess that looks close enough to me, but I think I’m a little more handsome. And a little more intelligent and modest

Love this! Reminds me of a sail back in the late 80s on our recently purchased H-28 with the FIL whom we promised to take to Ana Capa Island to go fishing. He fell asleep leaning back against the house and a small yellow finch like bird lit on him and hopped around. We were worried the damned thing might nest in his mouth when he snored!

That Third Eye Viewing Patch is pretty unique. Do you have to order that as an extra? Sure makes trimming easier.

Since folks pretty much know what I look like, here is a picture when I was a senior in high school in 1973.  When my hair was a little longer, a little thicker and red, not silver.  2nd row, center, I',m wearing a plaid flannel shirt.  My fraternal twin brother is on my right (your left for those that get confused).

first one: in the top row middle, 2003ish this was back in hawaii in kaneohe Bay, if my memory serves a bunch of the junior sailors were out watching an i-14 regatta. 

2nd one: one the way to Maine from the USVI as the captain of my own Ketch. it's been quite the journey this whole sailing thing!
