Had a small incident at the leeward mark of the SFYC Resin Regatta on Saturday. Ashley was able to show up the second the boat hit the dock and turned this:

Into this, allowing us to race Sunday. She wouldn't even let me get her dinner. I owe you, thanks for letting us get back out on the water Sunday.

No, I was the guy that rounded the gate the right way that got hit by a boat that rounded from the outside towards the inside of the gate.

OK - if he was such a dumbass, what were you doing back there with him? :ph34r:




BTW - nice patch job Ashley. ;)

I'm not trying to flame but looks like you did not have too much fun with the 4" grinder, or just blasted away from the inside? How'd you do it? Good photos. paper, etc taped on the outside & did all work on the inside? poly, vinyl, pox? Either way 8 hours, looks great.

If I blow that pic up and read the sail number that is USA 378 which is owned by M24Sailor, sorry man, had to do it. But I would bet that shot is from the Annapolis Noods recently. I'm sure he might have a comment once he finds it, but I wont say the obvious about the duck. :rolleyes:

Good luck to SCA without Ash.  Should something break, it won't get fixed right.  Should there be a MOB, there won't be an ISAF certified saftey at sea instructor on board.  Should one of the other girls crack a nail, have a heavy flow day, emotional breakdown, be a bitch, they'll be one down.  

 

None of this shit would happen with Ash on board.

I hope she gets a chance and gets a ride.   It will be the best staffing decision the skipper ever made.

Considering it expired six years ago, I wouldn't worry too much about it. ;)

Nice work, Ashley!
