Here is the next installment of The SmackBoys' Yacht.

We get new graphics...


...deal with this rat's nest and the non-functioning instruments because of it...


...and go Full-LED on the lighting...


Enjoy!

Hey smack,

I just got some LEDs and they were a handy type that could alternate between red and white. Same price as the white. They are super useful....

Warren - trust me, if I can do it, you can do it. It'll be the best thing you ever did.

When I'm sitting down below listening to the water rushing by while our 2 wonderful boys are sailing our big freakin' yacht - it's the best feeling in the whole world.

2012 Monhegan Race (an overnight race in Maine), sailing double-handed with my then 14-year old son. Typical very light wind overnight. We are battling with another boat (from another class) in the wee hours. I decide to take a nap and curl up on the cockpit sole, leaving my son at the tiller. An hour and a half later, I wake up in the pre-dawn light, my son's face just beaming down at me (big, big grin). He says,"Dad, we are sailing now; and I passed that boat!"

Multi-thousands of dollars for the boat, more thousands of dollars for running costs. Moments like that? Priceless!
