Silver Raven

Bit of a test to see if this works. Given my tech know how I'll probably end up posting pic of me naked and even I don't want to see those.

Anyway this should be a couple of shots of Raven. Van de Stadt 34, steel, she's going on for twenty year old and not exactly the fastest round the buoys race you will ever see but a nice sea boat, built like a brick outhouse and very comfortable down below, albeit more gypsy caravan than high tech marvel.

Max's first sail on Moondance. 5.6 knots, Jib only! (and yes, I know the fenders are on deck, lazy day).

Photos are just fine! Great for Max to take the wheel! Must be a thrill for him and for dad too!

(My laptop did resize something on screeen, even though I have a a wide screen). But I enjoy the photos.

Bill,
As I said, it's such a good idea and you can use any old jib with a bit of Dacron sewn through at the corners that I don't know why I don't see more of them. The wind scoop idea is an added bonus, because without a countervailing force to keep the boat head to wind, I imagine (having yet to use a scoop) that the wind scoop itself could move the boat around a bit until it collapsed like a spinnaker's shoulder.
