Re: Beach Cats in Rehab!

No worries minne. I have no intention of "practicing" before hanging my well-toned butt off a flying hull in 20 knots while sipping a martini...for the ladies on shore, of course. It's just how I roll.

Smackers,
You might find that making your beach cat come about is a little difficult. If that is the case then just jibe that sucker. It will be much faster, fun and with a hint of danger! Right up your alley.

Re: Beach Cats in Rehab!

Well, the repairs on "B/C Fiasco" are going well. One hull down (so to speak) and one to go. We went from this:

Re: Beach Cats in Rehab!

Thanks sonofa. I'd much rather suck at the repairs and be awesome at the sailing it though! Hopefully that'll become the case over the next year or so.

Smack, in light of your shakedown cruise, do you have any revisions to make?

Seriously though, sorry it turned out so bad after all that work. Looks like you've got it back in shape though. Learning experience, what?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken, opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
