    Dynamite Surfing

    That's one of the most appallingly stupid and irresponsible things I have ever seen... and at the same time one of the coolest. Velzyland, my old “front yard.”

    Free Olson 30 in Pensacola

    Posted on the Cal_Boats group: “Have an Olsen 30, no spars, to give away - This week or it gets crushed and taken to the dump.” Probably to far gone to fix—but, who knows—might be worth taking a look if you’re in the area. Contact info

    So, Bob...

    Put the double boot top stripe on and gave the cove some depth and didn’t fill it completely with the red. Oh yeah, it isn’t sitting on the angle iron pin cushion anymore. Joe

    Hey, Bob...

    OK, seems to be working now. Anyway, this is what is going along with the Sailing World story. They asked me to remove the shop and the characters in the back of the bus. :lol:

    Drysailing to wetsailing and back dilemma

    Purchased a J24 that has always been drysailed. It is currently in the previous owner’s YC storage yard. Boats gotta go bye-bye at the end of this month & it’s going to be anywhere from 6 to 12 months before I can get into a storage slot at the boat’s new home. So, we’re thinking about...
