Killed off? Ha! The only thing that could possibly kill this thread off is lame sailing. And people like you, C3PO, Fred, and all the other Big Freakin' Sailors that grace the pages of this thread just ain't gonna let that happen.

BFS Forever!

Here's what I did Wednesday instead of working.
Fast forward to the five minute mark for some real sailing.
Watch the whole thing if you want a tour of Tampa Bay and the St Pete waterfront.

I'll go up against Alex's boat any day of the week.

I've been in situations where I trusted her after I had lost all control of my own destiny.
She has not let me down.

I've said it before but it bears repeating.

Lyle Hess was a genius.

It's 25 degrees, all I can do is repost some from summer...






Most of this sail was above 6kts, awesome cold, windy, drizzly day 3 weeks before the end of the season...

Today was Awesome

The title says it all

Craigtoo just happened to be in Charlotte this weekend so I asked if he wanted to go check out the boat I'm thinking of buying. He said he was game so I called up the owner/seller and asked if he'd be available. He said no but I'll leave it open for you guys. Feel free to take it out if you want.

Well we did.

And let me say it was awesome. Winds were 1 to about 6 or 7 knots with gusts a bit higher. We both had a blast and craig managed to teach me a thing or two.

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, Here ya go:













And dumbazz me didn't even get a pic of Craig working as trim b*tch

Hi

I'm Trim B**ch... I like to sail...!

We had a good day! Winds were really gusty.... as you come out from behind an island or a point... the wind would hit you.. I think the winds topped 15 at gusts... but mostly stayed below 10... A fun time. Even got a little sunburned!

Flight's delayed ... time to get loaded at an airport bar.

Thanks Chris!!!!!!! Tell Mrs. CK that that was one AWESOME meal!!!

I still can't believe the jib didn't explode.

It's got one more sail in it... or maybe 0.5 sails in it....
