Out the Gate with Keelhaulin

Lovely day for a sail, BF had to work so Keelhaulin (Russ) came instead. I have yet to meet any undesirable types, in person from Sailnet: and keelhaulin is no exception and very knowledgeable. A great day all round and more to come. I even got to have a Fosters beer, made in TX.

Stevyboy is on a distinguished road
Howdy, Looks like a good day. I live here in vallejo and also went out today. It was a great day for sailing. If you ever need a buddy to go out with let me know. I really want to sail some in the bay. I'm new to sailing and I've only sailed up here in the vallejo area. Going out of the Gate sounds pretty fun as well.

What nice weather we had today! My only wish was that there was a bit more wind but it was enough to sail us out the gate 4 miles or so and back in. Simon was hoping that more residual swell from the storm that went roaring through on Sat was out there; but everything had subsided. We ended the day motoring back in from Pt Blunt (Angel Island) because the sun was setting and the wind dropped down. Simon has an engine temp issue to track down; gets too warm while running 2800 RPM or above. Just a reminder Simon; your Tachometer might not be reading correct; it's possible that we were running at higher RPM. Adjust your throttle linkage and see if it will run any faster wide open (the injector pump governor will limit it at 4000). You can run the engine up to max throttle for a short time it won't overheat immediately.

If the tach is incorrect then the engine cooling might be OK as is. If the tach is correct then you need to track down the reason for the temp rise.

All in all; I'm very impressed with the E39 that Simon bought! Extremely well outfitted for cruising; nice interior, nice cockpit setup for singlehanded sailing. The primaries aft of the helm seem odd at first but it really works well to have a helm in front of the winches and traveler just ahead of the helm. An improvement would be a windward sheeting traveler so that the traveler is easy to adjust while holding the helm.

Jody-

Be aware that that shammer has photoshop to load on his new laptop... I know since I PM'd him about it. I see a photoshopping in your future.

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.

Sorry I missed you guys. Glad you made it out the gate and had a decent sail. I thought "Fosters" was Australian for "piss".

I thought the Fosters made in texas was made using water that had run off through the sheep farms. Isn't that what EL PASO means (passed, and in this case - passed by sheep).

Just like any other beer, sheep piss is sheep piss no matter what color the can it comes in.

Good Pics - thanks for sharing

In contrast to the thousands of tourists who visit each week, I have never owned a Newport, R.I. T-shirt . . . and I'm from there.

Some things are better tolerated if simply ignored - especially piss-beer.
