Sailing photos from my youth.

Found these old photos of The Friar Tuck. '29 Alden. Can you spot the Gollywobbler?
Dad used to say, "Get out the Gollywobbler and let it all hang out",
Something related to a line that the Jonathan Winters character Maude Frickert used to say.




'79 Camper & Nicholson 303, Blow'd up labor day
Sunfish just fine
Dyer Dow, crushed in Hurricane Sandy
Angler 204 Cuddy-, Crushed in Hurricane Sandy
Yes all true, No wonder no one will go on the water with me.

Great pictures of a beautiful boat. Interesting placement of the dingy.

Yes, my job to, (pardon me) push it out and pull it in.

The best sailing was when the keel would kiss the waves.

There was a boomkin which, I guess made a stern mount for the davits impossible

Re: Sailing photos from my youth.

OMG!
How could you possibly go sailing on that?
Where are the lifelines, jack lines, liferaft and safety harnesses?
How did you survive all day on the water without GPS, VHF, AIS, EPIRB and SPOT!
Seriously though, it's a lovely boat. Any idea if she's still around?

Re: Sailing photos from my youth.

awesome way to learn...i started at age 7 on gaff rigged sloop 36 ft on hudson river----no lifelines no gps nothing but planks for oars --for when my dad got impatient..lol....and a leaky old dinghy, and lead line and knot line---lol we had it alllllll...and a cpt from merchant marines --a REAL captain(not uscg bought)---sailed tallships and steamers for a shipping company owned by his grandfather.....oh, yeah--they were irish.

we didnt have a gollywobbler---we had a sloop. we did have a spinnaker, tho....


this is the best way to learn to sail....is difficult to do these days tho...not so many tallship sailing uncles and dads to teach this anymore....

i am the smartass with the white scarf, saluting the chief of staff to gov rockefeller.....and his wife, my aunt. aunt m took this pic.


thankyou for posting your days of learning sailing---awesome pix!!!
