"Hey look, Dad... why did they put that pier way out here?"

"That's no pier, son, that's a Tartan34."

"How can you tell the difference?"

"One is covered with bird ****, the other looks like bird ****."

"Good thing they painted it red... like a channel marker."

"Good point, son. You can never have enough navigational aids."

"But what if she moves one day?"

"There are no hurricanes on the Great Lakes, son."

"Are his sails... hey look dad, those are mylar sails. HEHEHE (chuckle-chuckle)!"

"I know, pretty funny, huh? He should have spent that money on a really long oar. He'd go faster. Now everybody waive 'hi' when we sail past."

"Hi!!!... and Byeeee..."

T34C-

That was taken off the port side of his Catalina. The camera was parallel to the deck, but the brick bbq pit in the cockpit causes it to be a bit stern heavy...so the camera is tilted.

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.

When I seriously got to the idea of a Catalina Catamaran, it occured to me that CD- has had one of those for years. He like to use it for a dink/fishing boat. That is whenever it's not time to get the grill ready for the next meal.

Here he is showing off his prize cat and making BS clams about how fast it is (as cat owners always do), to some of his neighbors.

Don't laugh. His actual name is Harley Sparks and he just finished rounding Cape Horn on that thing.

It's probably fast, especially compared to his Catalina 400, since it doesn't have a brick BBQ pit holding it in place. Can't be CD's though...no grill.

Ya gotta go fast with that rig. If you were to hang around too long with something that looked like that, some Catalina owner is going to come along and try to tie up to you.
