    Bow Cleat Chocks

    In a perfect world we'd all race on boats without a single cleat or chafe guard with which to catch spin gear. Sadly this is not the case. I race on two programs with cleats at the bow for mooring and they are a constant source of aggrivation when racing. I've seen boats with bungeed rubber...

    Bachelor Pad Anarchy

    So, it's as shocking to all of you as it is to me that I graduated College a little more than a week ago. In an offhanded attempt to avoid the real world for another few years I applied to a few graduate schools and, shockingly, I made it into Brown University. le gasp! Unfortunately this...

    SA Layout

    Dawg, stop messing with it. Every time you change the background the forums function like a Macgregor 26 covered in molasses being driven by a poodle. Scrolling is slow, typing is slow, loading is slow. The fancy background (either the anarchy logo or water) isn't an improvement.

I've watched all of them over and over and over - I know all of the gadgets, villians, cars and (yes) girls. All of that went out the window tonight. We just got back from watching Skyfall in IMAX.

    LIS IRC Championship @ Riverside YC

    Right around the corner is one of my favorite, if lightly attended, regattas of the year. Whether light and shifty or blowing dogs off chains it's always been incredibly close and challenging racing - plus the parties on land aren't anything to scoff at either. Especially looking forward to the...
