Non-sailor lunches. People say they can just make it to the rail, but the topsides can suffer.

Actually, in the spring, I lower the beer, white wine and pop into the lake off the stern and it gets colder quicker than in the fridge.

TB, did you use YouTube or Photobucket to upload your videos?
Sorry sh, must have missed your question last night - (mucho vino blanco). I've only used YouTube and have only posted three total - so, I may not be the best guy to ask.

While walking my dog, I struck up a conversation with a new granddad seeing his baby son for the first time; he is a power boater, I a sailor. I was talking about how much fuel power boats use and their relative speed. His response was to say - "I don't know if you have noticed it, but most power boaters are going about 10 to 12 knots these irrelevant to how fast the boat can go."

In fact, I had noticed slower power boaters and I knew it was to conserve expensive fuel. My reply was that if boaters are going to go sail boat speeds almost, they might as well get a sailboat, or a motor sailor.

I think its safe to say that sailboats are going to make a come back as cheapies like me don't want to shell out big bucks for fuel.

Great photo, Val! He's got that, "don't let me screw this up" look we get better at hiding as we age. Of course, the anxiety within remains the same no matter the age! Face it, kids are cooler than boats. Kids and boats, priceless!

He's a cool kid, alright. But when I ask him to contribute to the cruising kitty, I get this reaction:

Valiente,
You guys look like you have a lot of fun on the water... What is that off in the distance behind your son? Looks like a three-masted something-or-other...

That is the S/V Kajama, a 1930 "tall ship" used for booze cruises around Toronto in the summer, and an extremely familiar sight to us as it leaves and returns to Toronto Harbour right in front of our club. Despite the fact that the sails are 99% "for show, not go", and it is inevitably stuffed with gawking lubbers, we think she adds something to an evening's cruise around the Toronto Islands.

http://www.greatlakesschooner.com/ht...ts_kajama.html

Launched as the Wilfried in Rendsburg, Germany in 1930, the Kajama traded under sail for nearly 70 years. She was a familiar ship in ports from Northwest Spain, through western Europe, and as far north as Norway and Russia. In 1999, Kajama was delivered transatlantic by Great Lakes Schooner Company and restored to her original profile.

We are proud to offer this 164' three-masted gaff-rigged schooner, which can comfortably accommodate parties of up to 225 people. Your group can enjoy deliciously prepared meals in Kajama's spacious single dining room (a 1006 square foot, open, and airy venue that enjoys natural lighting and ventilation through massive skylights).
