Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Nice work all around, Smack. I especially like the way you managed to give us a good feel for the wave heights. Your boys are awesome, I felt sorry for them being down with the sickness. Is this the first time they've suffered from it? How about some music credits?

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Thanks everyone. Those little guys were amazing. BigSmack has always been susceptible to motion sickness, but this is his and LilSmacks' first time to be sick on a sailboat. Even so, they still want more.

Here are the musical credits:

Give We Da Sensi - Instigators
Nel Villagio D'Edgar - Puccini
Engine Fire - Silent Partner
Goofy's Dance - Thelonius Monk Big Band

In the video, while the boys were sleeping, huddled together I thought of Pavarotti singing "nessun dorma". Good to gear opera/classical music in a sailing video. Buffet is a bit tired.

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Thanks Charlie. We still joke about LilSmack trying the cigar (what he called "the smoker") you brought me when we sailed together a few years ago. I loved how he blew through it like it was a bubble pipe. That's some safe smoking right there. I still haven't told him that's not how you do it. Heh-heh.

Ok Mel, details!

WHY were you off the coast of Georgia? Going to Florida? The Bahamas? Surely you weren't headed north?

The waves looked as large as you say, but that's not chop like we get in the Chesapeake. I'd be pleased to work my way upwind in waves spaced that far apart (if I had to).

Sigh...nice, wide side decks. You and Smackdaddy with yer friggin' "Battlestars"...

One day you too can join the dark side my jet eye warrior.
The MoonDance Battleship was heading south for a few days on the final shakedown cruise. We hoped to make St Augustine but the weather turned real nasty for 3 days.
