The boat... the reason.



(Today's weather, from Intellicast)

Details for Sunday
Very windy with sunshine. High near 60F. Winds W at 35 to 50 mph. Winds could occasionally gust over 60 mph. Sunday night: Mostly clear skies. Gusty winds during the evening. Low around 30F. W winds at 25 to 35 mph, diminishing to 10 to 15 mph.

We bought the SJ21. Cuz the only thing better than a money pit is TWO money pits. Thanks for everyone's advice on this purchase.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Haha! Stinging wit from Mastah TwoHulls. Yer right -- that is one brutal shade of yellow. Should be easy to spot from the air when floating hull-up.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

Bob, many congratulations on your new boat.

She looks fine and pretty to me.

Yellow is one of my favorite hull colours.

May she serve you good and in happiness

Alex

Bob...here, a present form uncle Alex....

Something wasn't right in your boat....so I made you a nice keel...

Don't let anyone give you crap...if they do..show them the keel. It needs painting, but, hey...no one's perfect.
