Glad you have AC. How did Saturday go? Missing Marathon. Flying this week doing the four letter word called work.

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

Saturday went pretty good, had about 20 to 25 people at one point at the Tiki Bar, the weather was nasty, though - extremely high humidity, moisture on the equipment, but everything survived. The vast majority of the crowd enjoyed the music, including the six drunks at the far end of the bar.

Hope to see you again before I head north. Who knows, maybe we can sail around Georgia together again, this time with the gulf current.

Keep in touch, Captain Melissa,

Gary

Gary, I'm in Marathon and would like to catch your act. How do I get your schedule? Can you PM me?

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

MGMhead, I'm at the City Marina, on the bulkhead by the ice machine and workshops. The Boat, a Morgan 33 O.I. is Saturday's Child. You can also reach me on my cell at 443-616-9402. I may be doing a free Christmas Party this Saturday at the marina's Tiki Hut. Not sure about that yet.

Cheers,

Gary

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

Last night, while talking with some of the folks on the General Chat, I mentioned that a guy that owns the boat in front of mine built a fiberglass hard-top that is incredible. Here are some photos of his work:





Bernie, the owner of the boat, is about 8 years younger than me, constantly working on the boat, and I believe he's one of those individuals that loves working on the boat as much, or more, than he does sailing it.

The top is made entirely of fiberglass, no core, strong enough to stand upon, and holds two large solar panels, his travler, winches, lighted and looks great. What do you think?

Gary

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

As Ralph Crandon used to say to Alice "Tonight's the night!" I'll be performing at the Tiki Hut at Marathon City Marina, 6 p.m. till they run me off. i'll be doing some traditional Chistmans songs, as well as some non-traditional Christmas songs, ie, Rudolph The Rednose Raindeer Regae, etc..

Of course, I'll also be doing some of my regular songs as well, Jimmy Buffet, Sinatra, country, bluegrass, and much more. Hope to be joined by some other musicians that are residing on the boats here, too. Should be a fun night, and the party's open to the public. If you're in the area, come on down!

We're gonna' have lots of fun in Paradise tonight,

Gary

Sounds plausible, as that arrangement sure doesn't look very conducive to Ease of Sailing... (grin)

Guy does nice work, I'll give him that...

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

Just found out today that same boat has carbon fiber masts, no shrouds, stays, etc... Also saw a couple other boats in the harbor with Carbon Fiber masts as well - now that's some big bucks sticking up in the air.

Cheers,

Gary

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

I look forward to meeting up again when you get back, and hearing about the real deal Mr. Wildcard... I know you have stories accumulated that aren't Sailnet family friendly...

Keep up the good work Gary, and let me know if you need bail or a hideout, I got you covered.
