Asymmetrical Warfare

Another "teaching myself creative new ways to kill myself" moment, brought to you by Bubblehead:

From the foredeck:


From the cockpit:


There was about 2 kts of wind this afternoon, which made for sorry sailing, but a safe training environment. Top speed achieved was 2.1kts. One successful gybe and then returned to port.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Looking good, BH!!

Nothing like a spinnaker for a great photo op.

You'll have fun with it. In some respects, they're actually easier to manage with a bit more wind -- something to look forward to.

P.S. Are those spreader lights I see, or ???

Yes, I have spreader lights. Not positive what you're looking at, but I also have rubber boots on the end of the spreaders.

My friends already know how to contact me. For those of you who have provided useful information without a shovel full of bad attitude, many thanks. To everyone else i say, fair winds and following seas.



I thought you weren't posting here any more ?

Good to see you have decided to give this place another chance.

Nice balloon. Have yet to pull mine out of the bag yet.

Don't leave Bubblehead. I've been inspired by your postings more than once here.

Last night was my first sail on my boat. Momentous occasion for me.

New halyards were woven in on the inSanity and off we went. I actually sailed into the slip on main sail power only.

Can't wait to get out this weekend.
