Clowns... all of you!!!!!

Cam... i took that pic before shaking out the reef. Reef early, remember? I like the way she sails with a single reef in... i feel more in control, less weather helm, etc. We did let out full sails after we got out there for a bit.

Sailortjk1... cables were connected correctly thank you very much! Oh... and you may think i suck but who was sailing while you were posting that message? Oh... i think it was me!!!

PBzeer... sounds like you are making good progress and still enjoying the journey. One day that will be Jayme and I.

Teshannon... trust me, i hated taking the sails off at the end of the day. I was stripping her for the winter... no sails, cushions, etc. It was no fun at all. Atleast i got lucky with the weather and had another chance to take her out.

HOG!!!.... Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I was wondering why we were "leaning" so much. Now i know just to get rid of those pesky sails so the leaning won't happen as much. Gosh... i feel like such a HEEL for not knowing that.

I was watching the weather and i told work to go F themselves, that i was going sailing. Good thing i had some comp time built up from working my butt off over this fall... otherwise they may have been mad that i split for the coast.

My best man Ken... he doesn't sail much so this was a lot of heel for him. I had him trimming the sails.


At the Towndock... stopping for coffee:


On the Neuse River:

I could probably take her out a couple more times with decent weather but given the wedding planning chaos that i'm in the middle of i decided that when i do get back to check on her that it will be project time rather than sailing time. I'd like to have the new bilge installed before the begining of next season. So... i thought i'd just give the sails a nice cozy resting place, all flaked and lying on my bed at the coast.

I love how you make your crew wear those dorky orange lifejackets and reserve the cool inflatable pdf for yourself.

Hahahaha... Only one of my crew has the orange one. I'm behind the camera in that shot. We've only got two of the Sospenders so somebody always gets to dress like a "pumpkin"... I gave him the choice but he decided to wear that style so he "didn't have to worry about it" if it didn't inflate... smart guy... (see lifejacket thread)
