That, I am not looking forward to. Have a while before that happens, I hope.

And I have missed Blue, just said that to myself the other day and the thread about hot water reminded me of him.

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.

Boy, you're just full of up-lifting news.

Okay, all of you PNWers & Oceanians...

you all officially suck!

It's snowing here today (& it's sticking!)

My daughter is 18 - with no signs of leaving, but I'm sure that marriage isn't too far away. Now I'm really depressed.

I'll have to up my scrip from 2 drams to 6.

What about building a CLC Dinghy? or a Kayak?
Or, go to Defender.com and just start buying everything.
Read your West Catalog cover to cover.
Just suggesting.
But,........ make sure you mark your calander for January 30th. The AFOC Midwest Chapter Anual Meeting will be held on that day in Chicago.
Its only a short drive from Ontario.

Invest in a ladder. Then, leave it outside, underneath her window.

You have to eat nails for breakfast to sail year round where Faster is moored! It is cold & rainy with no shortage of Gale force winds!

I have no idea what kind of soul sails the PNW YEAR ROUND!
We get about 8 months worth Max here in the PNW, no one in their right mind goes out from November to February!
Actually there is the rare odd year of an El Nino current that comes through these parts when you can sail year round but it is rare. We usually get storms for 4 months of winter.
I was out sailing this last Saturday Oct 18/08 and had to bundle up like a snowman to keep warm, even though it was sunny. Nice steady breeze though!
I like to plan next years mods and changes to my boat off season, gives me something to look forward to and keep me busy.

I cure my boat pardem depression by grabbing a six-pack and heading out to the yard to "work on the boat". Mostly, I just drink beer and shoot the breeze with the other guys that are hiding from their wives. This winter, I plan on mounting fire extinguishers on bulkheads...3 of them. Should take me at least 12 weekends.

The sailing is just starting to get good here in Austin. The breeze is filling in and, the water temp dropped to 78 degrees and all the powerboaters took their toys and went home!

The lake is ours for 5 months!

Scotch is a good remedy for what ails. I wish you a speedy recovery.
