Great pics! I'm envious.

I have some pics of my boat in 30-35 on the jack stands if anyone is interested. Less carnage....much less.

We always like boat porn, even on stands.

Gnarly, Charlie! Great "action photos". You actually were able to capture the waves with some height, not always easily done. Was this the trip where you posted "Puget Sound Sailnetters" a few weeks ago? I was out of town (sailing in New Zealand and Tonga - I'll write up a brief report about that later...), otherwise I would have been looking for ya here in Friday. C'mon back, I'll buy you a pint at the Ale House...

Charlie,
Looks like a pleasant day sail.

I'd mention the fender over the side in the first pic - it probably didn't help your speed or pointing. As I recall you've already indicated a lack of fender stowage.

Simon, she's in need of some servicing, mainly wood related issues. I have three ribs aft that have a bit of softness in spot that I have to take care of. These are in the counter and above the WL. They're also through bolted to horizontal stringers so there's no structural deficiencies. Of course, the masts need stripped and varnished along with other brightwork. Other various and sundry projects as well.

Moonfish, no this was just this past Saturday. I doubt I'll be able to make it back out there until after the refit but I'll take ya up on that offer when I do.

Chuckles, yep, I saw them. I wasn't much interested in sending anybody out there to get them until we got through the Strait. Once we turned the corner, we cleaned her up. Trust me, the stuff we were dragging wasn't slowing us down.

Mine stay right on deck; I've got locker space - I lack in give a dang's, and if I get to heeling so they fall off I got other problems to worry about.

Heck, Chuckles, you've got a whole extra hull to cram stuff into!
