    Bad week for musical RIPs, David Lindley

    The partnership between David Lindley and Jackson Browne was long-lived and epic. IMHO, any appreciation of it has to include Lindley's falsetto vocals on "Stay" A very sad day indeed, what a tremendous loss.

    David Crosby DTS

    ?? A friend who bought it from Crosby has lovingly, and respectfully, brought it back to top form including several successful campaigns. (in addition to serving as a great boat for family and friends)

    Bill Russell DTS

    Charlie Pierce wrote a nice piece in remembrance in his column for Esquire. Much is devoted to Russell's off-court life but on the subject of his on-court greatness, he wrote: "For me, the most amazing statistic of Russell’s astonishing career in basketball is that his teams played in 10...

    Hard dinghy boarding ladder ideas?

    Hard chine, stitch and glue dinghy, in need of a boarding ladder (to retrieve the crew who have demanded a stop for a swim). I made a rope ladder with 4" deep by 14" wide treads, but the crew report that it just swings in under the chine under load and is very difficult to use... Trying to use...

    4) Petit EasyPoxy WITH the additive they offer (can't remember the name of the additive at the moment...).You can do custom colors (at least at the hardware store where I buy it...). The additive increases gloss and hardness and you can easily get 3 years out of it (true, Perfection is going...

    Pocket Cruising

    Yep, Vivier draws some beautiful boats (Jewel comes to mind when speaking of pocket cruising). I have the plans for this one (Kernic), although it will be the beach boat and the Welsford Sweet Pea will be for cruising. If I ever get around to building it...

    Show me your blue boats!

    Interlux Perfection, Lauderdale Blue, rolled and tipped by me and a buddy. Eventually, I gave him the boat (1970 Pearson 24). The paint job is now about 10 years old and still going strong. Yeah, left the boat in a bit late the year this photo was taken...
