Pain shared is pain... well it's still pain.

gfh is a chatter, not a poster, but he has one of the best sailing blogs on the interweb. I had to share this, because it absolutely perfectly captures the essence of small boat maintenance. You can almost read the veins popping out of his forehead:

Re: Pain shared is pain... well it's still pain.

This entry of his from last summer is particularly funny (IMO): Another Sunny Day in New Jersey | Sailing Fortuitous
I love the comic he made about the 'altercation' at the boat launching ramp!

Great sense of humor and voice.

Chip,

Can't believe it was only a few years ago you, Jen and I met up in Inner Harbor to look at buying Fortuitous. I thought when i recommended her to you as bring a solid boat, if it didnt turn put you'd forever never forgive me. Now you are a racer, cruiser, and Mr Fixit with humorous literary bend.

Hope we get a chance to meet up this summer.

Dave

Re: Pain shared is pain... well it's still pain.

Thanks man. Yeah, she's been good to us. We're kind of still acting like a couple dumb kids with a new boat, but I'm ok with that.
