Awesome! For an "old wooden boat" Skipjack sure looks pretty good! And it is good to see you have a young stud to work the foredeck...

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.

thanks guys . Skipjack is an " old wooden boat ". She has issues but for the most part is sound . She's just about right for an old trashy dog like me . I'm getting pretty anxious about hauling her & getting the bottom done . What happened to that stimulis package thing ???

OK....here's how it went .....or didn't . When I cleared the harbor & rounded the point I found myself in considerable wind & a big chop . I tried a couple times to point the boat upwind so I could raise the sails , but the bow would come around almost immediatly . I was getting pitched around pretty good . It was like the wind & the waves were going in different directions . Rather then find myself in over my head I decided to abort . So I ended up having a slow & rough motor boat ride instead of a sail. The only part that went well was docking by myself . To reach my berth I have to do a pretty tight 180 degree turn while flirting with a bridge & a shoal area . To stop her forward moment as I eased up I put her reverse with the helm hard starboard & she just nestled in snug as you please . When the boat came to a rest where I could step off & secure lines she was lined up perfectly & maybe 4 inches from the dock . It was so casual . Easily the best landing I've done so far & way better then last week when I came in after sunset & had to go around twice because I couldn't see squat . So....anyone have any notions why I couldn't keep the bow upwind . It was hard for me to give up & not try to gut it out . Not in my nature for starters & with that much wind I was expecting a wonderful sail . Help ???

I guess the photo thing still escapes me , but you get the idea . It was a pretty nice day . Found a couple here that likes to sail so I had crew this day . Things still going good on the Skipjack . I break things......then I fix them . My dingy was stolen , but I got her back a couple days ago . Yesterday I broadened my horizons by breaking something while I was fixing it . One more trip to the hardware store . I'm old....so what else have I got to do . Every day I try , I learn a little more here . Since I'm trapped here by the economy I've just been sailing as much as I can . It'll help when I leave here . When I look at that picture I can still taste that ham sandwich . Thanks Miss Ashly . Tim is a good guy . I hardly have to touch the helm . He doesn't mind driving & I'm free to wander around the boat . How good is that ?
