Have you ever thought about keeping her loser to the ocean for a few weeks? Or do you go on enough trips that get you out there?


True, I get to drive by and check on her every time I go out, but until recently there were few other options due to a lack of launch ramps (I row out).

I have to plan around the tide quite a bit or I can spend the whole day motoring in and out, so until I retired I was pretty limited in my after work sailing. Nowadays I can pretty much go sailing when I please!

Recently friends on the other side of town have offered the use of their dinghy float, so I may move her over there when next I commission her.

No tidal currents, open water nearby, yeeehaaaa!

Had my head stoved in
But I'm still on my feet,
And I'm still...
