by the way has anyone actually read the prose that goes with the pdf of the picnic


dig this guys

"Junior as lookout squatted on the bow deck. Sis , sprawled out on the cockpit floor mattress. Perhaps your wife will want to put the baby to sleep in the cabin for a nap. It is so wonderfully quiet under sail. Then she will relax in the sun - lean comfortably back against the cabin wall and glow with delight as she watches you skipper the boat with boyish joy."

It is a wonderful, wonderful document
Dylan... I hate to be the one to tell you this, but I think all that salt air has messed with your head.
"Honestly, I don't know why seamen persist in getting wrecked in some of the outlandish places they do, when they can do it in a nice place like Fiji." -- John Caldwell, "Desperate Voyage"
