    ...but the sails look awfully flat, don't you think? :D

    We have an annual Pirate festival down here - actually, a few of them.

    Perhaps. But, Charlie Morgan just designed and built them - he can't be there to sail all of them too. :)

    I'm not crazy. The Air Force had me tested. :P

    Charlie Morgan had a very good eye. His designs were legendary and prevalent around Tampa Bay in the late 1960's and early 1970's. As a kid growing up in those days, I recall that it was almost impossible to go sailing on Tampa Bay and NOT see a Charlie Morgan designed boat somewhere on the...

    ...15% generally. More if the sailing was spectacular. (..She's a good boat, she's earned the tip. :D ) ...Kim, what I hear you saying is: "...We want more Big Pictures!" :D :D ...You guys (and gal) are all nice - thanks for the kind words. :)

    Oh no! Tom Ray - who took that picture - was anchored in 2 1/2' of water in his pontoon boat trying to lure me over closer so I would run aground. He always ties to get me to run aground. :)

    Oh, man I would love that! I talked with Charlie Morgan a few times trying to get lines for my boat - and he could not find them. Then he found them, but could not copy them (they were big). I offerred to drive over, and get them copied for him, but by then he had grown tired of the effort...

    Actually, pulling my traveler car all the way up to weather in light air actually seems to help! But, nobody has polars on my boat, so who knows? :D

    I have no polars for my boat. I don't think they exist. Besides, sometimes science takes all the fun out of sailing.
