Hog,

Nice try. Why was it that every camera angle included some of that nice gleaming teak that you must have worked hard all winter varnishing? Show-off!!

Seriously, thanks for the vids. The giggling gals are definitely cuties!

Of course, to any father, their daughters are always going to be little girls, no matter their chronological age.

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.

I guess than that I am in the in-between age of 18!!!!
Love my daughter dearly, but she can realy push my buttons.
I figure by about 22 - 24 she should have it figured out.
Im just hanging in there till that happens.

She still loves to sail.

This was her in '06 family sail.

That looked like a fun family day's sail SH - enjoying the boat with your lovely wife at the helm, girls giggling with delight and sounds of the wind and sea, without the annoying drone of engine noise.

Funny though, whenever my daughter and I went sailing on our last boat, she liked to giggle with delight as the wind piped up, even though she's old enough to have her own brood.

Thanks for sharing your family day on the water with us.

Great vids, but I didn't see anything electronic go over the side. Looks like somebody got a haircut since last year as well. Should be there by the weekend I think.

Thanks for the clips. With 2 little girls of my own, watching those make me anxious for warmer weather and days spent aboard.
