This picture is from last February. My son and I had just finished surfing in 16 degree (F) weather. It was really windy too, so it was a short surfing session. Note the salt water ice on his back. (I get dragged out to surf in the winter. I guess kids really do help keep you young.) It's a bit off topic, but I thought you'd enjoy this.


Regards,
Brad

Awesome. Great pics. I want to sail Friday and Christmas days. Just need wind. Every single weekend, when I attempt to get out and sail, no wind.

Hey Brad,

I think you need to change the name of your boat!

Good point, but we are on her more in the summer. Everyone just wants to go to the beach in the summer though, so I'm doing more sailing in the winter!

Here are some shots - and a video - of the ice last weekend. And a video of sailing too.

First the ice around the slip.








This picture was taken after I was back at the dock. You can see how the prop wash cleared a path.


.

This video was taken after breaking up the ice all around her and then running her in forward at idle for awhile to make sure all loose ice was clear. Only then did I increase the rpms to create a path to clear water. It worked. The warmer water from below quickly make a large clear area so I didn't have to play ice breaker.

40 megabytes. It's big. Click here.


Here I've run up the rpm a bit, while on the boat.

18 megabytes. It's big. Click here.

.

And here's a video of some solo sailing right after clearing the ice (this past Sunday).

47 megabytes. It's big. Click here.

(coming soon)

Hope you enjoy these.

Regards,
Brad

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.
