Re: Inspiration for ChrisNCate

It's great to see 'Pride still sailing. I was able to sail in her for a short trip from Toronto to Cleveland in '05. That's one graceful ship. But it's an unbelievable amount of work for 8-12 crew to set all of those sails. Makes you really respect what it took to get these beautiful vessels going back in the old days (and also what it takes to keep them going now).

We see the Pride quite frequently up here and have passed her many time when she is taking passangers/ sightseers out the Patapsco to the Bay. She is really a work of srt in many ways.

We have sailed quite close to here while she was under way and watching her power through the water is awesome and really harkens back to the days when those sailing vessels "ruled" the seas. Her masts diameters are huge and raked dramatically. She is the second "Pride" as the first sunk off of Peurto Rico some years ago in a micro burst in a storm. I fondly rememebr the first Pride in NY Harbor during the tall ship celebration in when I had the oppertunity to be on board.

Here is her current blog

Nice pics, Bubblehead! (I'm a former Bubblehead myself!)

My boat's in the water now, I'm anxious to get out there and see stuff as well. Whales, seals, islands, boats, island seals, whale boats, whatever. It's all good.

chrisncate - it's natural at the end of a long project to look at the result and say 'What now?' Get out there and do some things. Set another goal. Circumnavigate Island X; spend 48 hours underway; top your previous speed for the run from your mooring to the fuel dock; race against the clock from the mooring around bouy #7 back to the mooring; (First you helm, she crews; then she helms, you crew; loser does the dishes)
