Bob tries to figure out how to blog

I am blogging:
Yacht Design According to Perry

For now I am just trying to get the feel of the mechanics of the process and I am still struggling with magaging the images. So I have aired some feelings about what my family has been thru in the last 6 months. Call it my therapy if you like.

When I feel I have the process down I'll launch into some sailing subjects where I will say exactly what I want to say without having advertisers to worry about offending.

So, if you are in the mood check out my blog.

Looks good so far Bob, and heartfelt condolences on your loss.

I always looked forward to your reviews in Sailing, when I was getting magazines.

True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

James:
the mighty PERRYWINKLE if you please.
PERRYWINKLE is a Peter Norlin designed Cirrus 7.8 built in Sweden by Albin. We have owned it now for over ten years and it's a gfood litttle ship.

Good stuff Bob. Very heartfelt and personal. And even though you say you don't know what a blog is, you seem to have figured it out. Can't wait to read your uncensored sailboat thoughts!

I had you pegged as a canoe stern, cutaway forefoot, modified full keel sailboat owner.

Kwalt:
Fact is, after being a partner with my pal in a Valiant 40 my wife quickly fell in love with this boat that at the time was owned by a custom boat client of mine. My wife just liked everything being smaller so she could play a larger role in handling the boat. I like the ultimate simplicity of it. It has a 9.5 hp Volvo diesel sail drive. I can dock the boat under sail. I can leave the dock under sail. I can jump off and stop the boat with one hand. It does not take much to make me happy on a boat.

I guess we are all very interested

In meanwhile it is nice to know you are a family man. I am too and life without it would lose most of its flavor.
