Here is one for the night..
 
Every now and then I will come here on this thread and put a photo of a boat sailing.

Very nice. thanks.

Nice shot, Alex.

And I like your new avatar, too. I'm envious ... I'd love to have a picture of my 17-year-old daughter on the tiller. But that would require her to spend an afternoon with her incredibly uncool father. :-/

Enjoy those great kids of yours, sir. They'll be teenagers before you know it.

Alex, that picture belongs on the cover of a sailing mag. You should submit it, seriously. Awesome shot!

Those type of pics is why I bought a boat. I can't wait to post my own.



Poltrgeist,

How can you be uncool? You sail.

CSM-

The problem with that photo is that it is a horizontal, and most magazine covers require a vertically oriented photo, with a fair amount of clear space at the top for the magazine's masthead. It would be better for an interior double-truck horizontal photo layout. :D

A good digital camera for the boat is either the Pentax WP30 or the Olympus SW770. Both are seven-megapixels and are water-resistant. :D

Have you looked at his photo??? :D Actually, to his 17-year old daughter, he can't be cool... it's against the laws of nature.. she's a teenager... think back to when you were a teen... were your parents "cool". Didn't think so. ;)

My parents didn't have a chance with me. I was married at 18 (no shotguns involved) and 26 years later still am to the same wonderful person.

I am fortunate that both my kids (22 year old son and 18 year old daughter) have no issue being seen with me in public. I never grew up and still have no desire too.

I put my glasses on and checked the photo again. Now I understand :D

Dog and Buckeye ...
 
Yes, the glamor shot in my avatar gives away some of the reason why my kid thinks I'm a dork. She's basically right.

I'm lucky ... she's a good kid, works hard, gets great marks from her boss, does well enough in school, loves music (as I do), has a great sense of humor, hasn't been in trouble with the law, doesn't do drugs ... but doesn't like sailing. I'll live with it.

When I post a pic it will never have me in it and as you see I have no avatar. I will not give any photoshop ammo.

I must be a dork also. Both of mine are great and make me very proud.

My daughter does'nt understand why to have a sailboat. Too slow. She will though spend all day on my power boat. (Hi my name is Jim and I am a stinkpotter) I will drag her and her friends all over the James River, so they all think I am cool.

My son cannot wait to go out for a sail.
