Some cool sailing photos I had here...I'm bored

Guys, I'm really bored waiting for my boom.... this really sucks...

I had a few more photos of my boat and his racing sister (before sponsored by PT and now by MIKE DAVIS, 2006 IRC Champion)...since I have nothing to do...I'm posting them...the quality is not very good, but beats photoshoping Cam or SD or CD...

please enjoy, specially all of you that are dry like me....


This is Giulietta with racing main, and cruising genoa , this was taken going really fast on autopilot, while I enjoyed a drink, pic taken on a sunny windy afternoon, from a friends boat.



And here a nice ride with the kids and the baby..(see if you can see him)





And this is her sister, that was built just for racing and whose hull mould was used to build my boat. The hull, mast, rigging, rudder, wheels, etc. are all the same, only difference is deck layout, cabin and interior. We got almost same weight, if I remove some comodities my wife "requested"...

Here doing 19kts.. (this was the day the mast broke)...I like the wave on this one....spot Wally...





Here doing a "big ass" wake also fast on a different day...



Here with her new "colours" now sponsored by Mike Davis





My new Assy Spi arrived today...

Well, we might be getting more snow this weekend. UGH... Getting the boat sodablasted on the 23rd, checking the thru-hulls and seacocks then, and then painting the hull as soon as the weather is warm enough... then we're off sailing.

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.
