What's new?

Been a few years since I have been around these parts. Been a few other places and popped in every now and then in stealth mode. See a bunch of new folks and some old faces as well. Dang, Smack, change that avatar already...

A lil update on my end;

Sold the old & slow O'Day 25 to a kid that took her down the Mississippi as far as St. Louis. He plans on going all the way to NOLA next summer. Nice to be young and no responsibilities. I then bought a 1992 Beneteau First 235 WK. Hauled her back from Bradenton FL with my son last December. Was a bit of an adventure, it's documented in the blog here.

Been racing "Seeker" all summer and trying to get a program together. "Green on the boat + green crew = Fun Sailing" but, not the best results. Only way to go is up.

Anyway, thought I would say howdy and see what everyone else has been up to. Plan on being a bit more regular again.

Good to have you back... How you liking the Bennie First Trailerable? I've actually thought about selling my 7.9 and getting the 235, love the layout on it. Can't beat the size for trailering either.

Hey CB - whazzap brotha?!?!?

Nice boat dude! I'll check out your blog.

Actually, I've been thinking about changing the avatar. Now that I've gained so much literary influence in the world of sailing as a true thought-leader, I was thinking of going with something like this:



Fitting don't you think?

Love my 235. Sooooo much better sailing, pointing, speed, all that good stuff. Very nice to buy new sails, mylar/kevlar genoa and a Dacron main, than bulkheads and deck core. Have a bunch of things on the list like genoa car controls without pins, traveller car swap out, etc... can't really go wrong with one I think.

Re: What's new?

Hey dan,

Welcome back. Now that you mention it I notice that you have been away for a while.
Epic trailer story and quite a bonding opportunity for you and Stu. I'm glad the rims stayed on the trailer and you got home. It is always messier if the rims come off...

Too bad you missed Siesta Key beach near Sarasota. The sand is incredible there, lots of bikinis too.

Everybody has one:

Hey Caleb, thanks. Was a good but very long trip.
