Light winds today - but it was upper '60s, sun was shining, and we took a newb out - who's now hooked.

Nice day.

Very nice spring break weekend on the Gulf:



Was in the follow-boat helping to bring a dude's 16' Wilson(?) back to his place across Aransas Bay in 25 knots and 4' chop. Good times:



I'll stick with my 27 footer thanks.

Alright Smacker,

You've beaten me to the water by two sails this year and I'm not havin' anymore of it!

I finally made a shake-down cruise after all the winter maintenance. Weather was mid-60's (F), a steady 10kt breeze from the NW, no wave action to speak of, and sun, sun, sun.

The auxiliary ran perfectly, all the new winches are sooooooo nice to use, my masthead VHF antenna gives much better reception. The new, all-rope halyards run much more smoothly in their new sheaves. The rig is tuned right, there was no mast movement in the wrong directions.

This is going to be a good season!

Yeah it has been seasonably cold here in the NW US, but at least I can sail 24/7/365 if I want to. could not do the 6 months in, 6 months out because of ice in the water etc..... Too freaken expensive for the little time one has to sail etc.

Heading out sunday, and the next two weekends minimum.

Marty
