Bestfriend,
Nice photos. I just got back myself from an overnighter from HHI to Beaufort with three friends. 12 kts on a broad reach on the way there, 12 kts on a beam on the way home, with the tide working for us in both directions. Got drunker than Otis last night on the waterfront walkway, and fell asleep playing trivial pursuit in the cockpit. Doesn't get much better than that. So did your son get a little seasick?

Looks like you had a lively Sunday sail BF - who cleaned up Max's mess?

That's how Narragansett Bay sometimes gets at the Bay's entrance - been out there many times in those conditions . . . not for the faint of stomach. This past Sunday though - winds were only 5-8 knots, surface was like a mill pond.

Great photos, that wave is one reason why I am taking lessons in Berkely, can't wait to be out there in my own boat in due time.

I don't know....I think its obvious why the kid vomits.....

Let's see why??? This is a photo capture done thru the eyes of a 6 year old kid....I mean...the kid looks at his father...here's what he sees...

Yeah right...blame it on the wave.....humpffff...shame on you....

Get a haircut, stop that makeup crap, get a pair of man's pants and shoes and behave like a man...he'll stop vomiting....you sissy....Californians are weird!!!

Ahhh....one more thing, please..... hold the wheel like a man, and stop that "super model" sideways pose crap, too!!!! Disgusting......Jaysus....

Hog - sounds like the way to go. My brother and I have a rule about drinking. If you fall asleep with your shoes off, your sleeping, if you fall asleep with your shoes on, you're passed out and fair game!

TB - After I beat him for making a mess, I made him clean it up.

Sarge - Look forward to seeing you out there. Have fun at OCSC, great school, The admiral and I will be taking classes there soon too.

Giu - I am not speaking to you, my feelings are hurt. Ahahahahahahahahah!
Just kidding, nice to see you back on your game.

Nice set of pics BF.
Looks like a lot of fun.
Its easy to see from your photos how different sailing in different regions can be.
We too get 8 foot waves. But our 8 foot waves are steep like a cliff of water, and our waves are soo close together that you don't get a break between waves.
Nice photo's, and when did you start wearing lipstick?

We get big lumbering, rollers here. Thats why I like surfing here so much. Lots of time to get set up and on the wave. 10 feet is a pretty typical swell right under the bridge in the summer. Combination of wind swell and a strong current.
I wear lipstick on the boat because I can't wear my heals. They get stuck in the locker gaps.

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.

B.F.
Those pics brought back some memories of my one and only visit to S.F.
I got off the plane got on the boat and we left. I had to help the FNG secure deck gear. before we got under the the golden gate he was useless, couldn,t get him out of bed for the next four days. when we got to Seattle I saw him for a split second bolting down the gang way. second mate and deck watches for four days that P.O.S. owes me
Sounds like Max is the tougher of the two at least he Made a comeback
GOOD FOR YOU MAX!!!! Eat a couple soda crackers next time it will fix you right up!!
