goose327 OK, I take it back,,LOL, nice craft Wombat.
Really guys, I didn't mean any disrespect. ALL sailboats have their own beauty, I just like the "old" look. I guess that shows my limited experience.

camaraderie ...or your PC's security and blocking features might be rejecting the pictures which are hosed on different sites and only referenced here.

sailingdog Also, if the pic is externally hosted, the external host may be having issues.

PBzeer Did you get the little icon in the pic frame, or just text. You might try hitting your refresh tab if you see the icon.

scolil I seem to be having trouble viewing pics. I am getting all of Goose's pics, but I missed the silver raven in #58. Do I need to adjust a setting or am I up in the night thinking there is a picture there? I have noticed this on other threads in this forum.

Pic was taken mid winter I think, so I'd guess it is the last gasps of an early morning winter mist. I took the pic early one morning on my way to visit my mother who doesn't live in Sydney and was unlikely to ever get to see the boat. As it turned out she was quite insistent and I had to drive up to her place , pick her up, bring her to Sydney, buy her lunch then take her home. Sheesh. Mothers !

Now, I'm not talking about tha hotrods like Giu, just the little cruisers.
To me, they all look the same, except my Venture.

Silly Portuguese person.

Even a daffy old wombat could see some evidence of a calm. Just making a point from looking at the pic. If the wind does pipe up........

Don't worry about it Dale, it's that hot latin blood. Gui's just "An Excitable Boy".

Nonetheless, do carry on .

Regarding the boat, you have roller boom reefing on the main. Horrid system. Leaves way to much belly in the main. For sailing reefed (on the wind ) you need to get that sucker as flat as possible.
