Ooo, nice square rig! I may have to photoshop myself into that one too!
Actually, this will do for right now.

GUI,

I can dig it, however my time has passed to try out for a crew position on a craft of that sort.

Sailortjk1, understandable; come to San Diego. The maritime museum here sails the "Star of India" the last sailing East Iindiamen on Earth, once a year. I have met several youths who have taken crew positions on her and stood on the yardarms under sail and at the dock. There is nothing to say you cant do the same. Perhaps something could be arrainged on a short term basis (museums are always looking for some kind of support).

Mine was to dive off the bowsprit of a classic Schooner in a white sand anchorage. Done! John Aldens former personal Schooner The Malabar IX named "True Love" anchored off St. John in water so clear as defy the boundry of water to air. My she was yar. In the meantime I have other "fish" to fry.

God help me GUI, wifey is as sick of the corporate world as I was when I bought the yacht brokerage (now long retired), but I would have to be a fool or a billionaire to jump into a 68 foot Nevins built Schooner. I am niether..... but it tugs at the heartstrings. Hell, somebody save her!

Nothing wrong with Salma... she's even nicer in person...at least the one time I met her. She was being interviewed by a reporter I know over at Variety magazine, and I happened to be visiting them that day.

If you need a woman that sails, look at Liz Clark on s/v Swell.



Here's one of Liz with s/v Swell in the background.

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.
