Great photos "dad". Where on Texhoma are you? Not a lot of room to sail a boat that big. Many, many years ago we had an Eastward Ho 24 that we kept at Cedar Mills, but eventually moved it to Houston to sell it when we bought our Bristol with the intention of doing all our sailing offshore..

Great photos, guys. On Father's day my grandaughter's volleyball team lost and washed out of the tournament, so my daughter brought the whole team to my timeshare condo in Orlando while most of them were waiting for time to meet a plane. Tuesday my daughter finally called to thank me for using the condo for a week, and by the way, Dad, happy father's day! Somehow, I am now officially an afterthought! But that's OK, at least I don't have to pay tuition!

Nice place to keep a boat. I used to watch them build the Valient 40 in the shed up the hill. I was surprized that the V40 keel is bolted on. They block up the keel on the ground outside the shop and coat it with goop sealant, then pick up the boat in the travel lift and lower it onto the keel and a guy inside the boat bolts it up- interesting process.

Yep. I watch the same. I am on C dock, which overlooks that. Been on many Valiants (which are the 42's and 50's now, by the way). Good people there. Great place to outfit a boat and a LOT of experienced cruisers there.
