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.

Kurt

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.

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.

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

Have you looked at his photo??? 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

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.

Kurt

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.
