Well, that's good news

That was a well of a winter around here. We don't have ice but we have wind and lot's of it. After some sunny days it is cold again and today rained hail...in May? That's odd.

I am still waiting for spring.

Have fun, maybe the weather is better there, for a change

Oh, you're talking about your boat!

Re: I'm in!!!!!!!!!!

What is this "season" of which you speak? In California we get two - low wind and high wind. But the boat stays wet :-)

Have you seen the Welsh language? Vowels are very few and far between.

At risk of asking you a question which, I'm sure, you have been asked numerous times: are you in yet?

Re: I'm in!!!!!!!!!!

Alas, we sold the dwelling containing all our stuff and are moving all our stuff to a new dwelling end of May. Hence all free time on weekends etc. has gone to packing up all our stuff.

The boat sits awaiting the move before she hits the water.

Re: I'm in!!!!!!!!!!

Put in last weekend and had the first sail today. New stereo is of the 5% variety (aka "F@$%$&*&% out of the box). However the new carbon fibre NACA foil rudder I made this winter is absolutely amazing.

My soul is once again at piece.

Wohoo!!!!!!
