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.

The helmsman and guy in blue rain gear are biker dudes not sailors. They brought what they had.

I'm the fat dude in red. The hood on that jacket is high vis yellow with reflective patches on the head and sleeves which is all that would be above the waterline anyway.

Beyond that, if red sux so bad, I wonder why survival suits are commonly that color?

Didn't say red was bad... just that it is hard to spot at NIGHT. At night, red often appears black..and is almost invisible. That's the reason why yours has a bright yellow hood. If you're in the water, you'll probably have the hood up.

boat pictures & winch handles installed

Did anyone else notice the pix with handles in the winches? I was taught not to because you'll lose it (sort of like "you'll shoot your eye out kid!") and kept the habit for 20 years. I got lazy about it a couple years ago and lost 2 handles in one season and now am back to handles stowed when not in use.

The only good pic I have is of the kids in the cockpit - no spray or waves. (It's a trip when we lost a handle - of course one of the winch handles is in a winch!)

The only problem with teak decks.. well... it has this super duper High Maintenance program. People all over the world with SAILboats HATE to take care of the teak.

It involves SAILING... you see.. that pic above of Gui's boat..?? He's not enjoying himself. He was forced to take his boat out by his teak. It HAD to be treated. How horrible is that...?? He had to subject himself to 20kt winds and bury the rail... all in the interest of treating his teak with nothing.

Gui,
I salute you. Taking one for the team as you did... A true hero. It takes a man to treat his deck with nothing... preserving a tradition of hundreds of years. Forcing yourself to go out on a fat-butt boat while your son does all the work.

Didn't mean to sound argumentative, it was really just a question. If the folks making foulies didn't think yellow had advantges the hood on my jacket wouldn't be yellow. That being the case, you wonder why survival suits aren't yellow all over.

Ron, I'm one of the guilty parties too. Like Giu, I keep my locking winch handles in place on the winch until just prior to tacking. I prefer sitting to leeward when steering upwind, where I can watch the telltales and can easily tweak the sail trim as needed.
