In Topic: Laying over in San Francisco for a day and a half - what's a must

Take an old streetcar west, and have an Irish coffee and breakfast at Buena Vista Cafe.

 

Begin your march towards the Golden Gate bridge and pass along the Marina Green and marina, past St. Francis YC, and across Chrissy Field to Ft. Point. 

 

Return the way you came, or get a lift back to Ghiradelli Square and take a cable car up and away, passing Lombard St. down to Market St.  You can catch a historic streetcar back to Fisherman's Wharf.  Or take the other cable car line up through North Beach.

 

Watch Friday evening windsurfing/kiting from St Francis YC bar.

 

Catch a show at the Mitchell Brothers. 

 

Legion of Honor is a nice museum with a nice restaurant.

In Topic: Travel Bar Anarchy

I have my grandfather's hand me down two bottle travel bar. I don't get it out and about like I should, though, since it's not co-located with the rest of the bar elements.  My uncle has similar, and I remember being stuck in traffic after an event at the Rose Bowl where he popped his trunk, brought out his hard sided travel bar and his small ice chest and whipped up drinks for everybody to pass the time.  Very pleasant.

 

I also was the recipient of an olive green vinyl two bottle carry bag, which has come in handy many times when transporting a couple of bottles of wine.

 

Your handmade wooden travel kit is very impressive.


In Topic: Laser /Sunfish Rumors

I just cannot see myself buying a communist sailboat.
The fact LP has moved most of its production to a communist country makes their England operation tainted.
If I buy another Laser I will figure out a way to get a nearly new one shipped here from Australia.
The only way to save the western economy is to refuse to keep sending all our money away.

 

Fred I love your convinctions and I agree with you.  I still have my Vanguard-built Laser, and the next addition to my backyard fleet may just be an RS boat. Keep up the good fight.
