    Sailing Simplicity

    A phrase in a Front Page comment, got me thinking....the need for advertising revenue notwithstanding...we hear lots about decline in sailors...but who wants the grief, common dodger that I am, who can afford to moor a tri, or even a cat, a rig with a wing, or foiled flyer? I under stand the...

    Class Warfare...

    Be interested in AC contest, where in the vessels were conventionals, as in Etchells, Solings, 6 Meters etd. Surely, this take has been aired in past, and seems very sensible, to me.  As tis, just a good example, of hole in water to pour money sure advantanges will eventurally prove...

    Front Page : "do it now!"

    Learning comes slowly, cause we see/hear stuff and have an initial tendency to say it is so...but marvelous and not so marvelous goodies aside, sometimes we miss the waves for the seas, maybe...I like to think coming "e" will slow power rigs and increase sail rigs, cotton may comeback as soft...

    "make it go away" - Front Page

    Well, we do have our devils! I sort of backed into this by building my plastic version of Seaman's classic wood toy, the Malibu Outrigger. I used 2 cracked Hobie hulls and base-cracked carbon spars; retrevied from the landfill sort of, as destination. But, then I learned the resins (epoxy) I...

    Dig these shuntingers (proas)...that is a good sized rig...someone has to make me comforable with close-quarter-shunting...I have tied and still preferr tacking...but just MHO. Tacking make sense in harbors and approaching moorings.."tacking proa," if you will.. Gots a video?

    Yesterday, Today....Front Page

    Helmet-less and pleasing practicality is strategic or long-lived. Scientific impractically is short-lived ugly and tactical, however valuable. But, the great culling notwithstanding, the former is pleasant in any form?  Mask-up Killer!

    The Big Hit...

    FWIW, Wings are wondrous, but, very impractical as can be.. Foils are wondrous to oo, but practical? Maybe a cotton wing will do Maybe foils smooth seas and speeds the ride For what and why? But if sailing is relaxing Gimme the old sloop rig, without head gear  Such crappola we gits to...

    Front Page...What a Time to Be Alive

    A ?. As scat or puerile as is may seem, whenever I view a pic of the clippers in port, with heads over or near dock, I wonder, "where did they go," meaning with the head so present, where did the crew go potty?

    Front Page: "The push"

    Beautiful foiler. Albeit, spendy too. Low aspect rig just does it, and makes foiling what it it floats above the fray.
