Not sure how I missed this post but no, not Dootalk although I do ride a SkiDon't. It's Freedomsledder, we put the fun in dysfunctional.

And the boats, just 7 years later look OLD
Look at those transoms and the place where max beam is.

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

[edit] I deleted my photos because I soon realized that some people may not consider the photos "those perfect moments". It never really crossed my mind until I thought about it shortly after.

8 months pregnant and still sailing!

Look! We're 8 months pregnant and still sailing.


Here's me with a $hit eating grin, just happy to be out of the pen and on the water again. My wife is piloting the boat, identifying traffic through the binos, and incubating a new life, all at the same time! Yes, she's awesome.


Reflection of our bow as we push the water out of our way....


Sailing season has ended for us for a while. We're on baby watch now. It was tough this weekend not to be out in the 10kt breeze and 85deg sun, but it just didn't seem smart to be far away from the hospital right now. We are planning to take "Sprout" out sailing when he's one month old though. The in-laws (not boat people) have informed us that this is child abuse and we've been asked questions like "what if something happens?" and "what if the wind comes up."

I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Not the typical "perfect moment," but after working off and on for months to find a spot to install my shoot through transducer, it worked - and that was perfect.

Trick? Prep the site, don't test it, don't second guess, just epoxy it in.

My nephew at the helm. Georgian Bay.

Southern Georgian Bay

Visualize the vastness of the oceans; the infinity of the heavens; the fickleness of the wind; the artistry of the craft and the frailty of the sailor. The oneness that may be achieved through the harmony of these things may lead one to enlightenment. - Flying Welshman
