Yes I think that there is. On Flickr, when you open an image, there is are five icons on the lower right just below the picture. The middle one is a curved arrow, which is the symbol for 'Share this Photo'. When you click on that icon you get a dialogue box that says "Share 1 photo to". Below that title are four choices. Click on 'Embed' and when you do there is a box with an internet HTTP address. Right click on that address and select 'copy'.

Then come over here and in the "Reply to thread" box, there is a icon that looks like a postage stamp with a mountain, that is the 'embed picture' icon. When you click on it you get a dialogue box with 'HTTP' selected. All you need to do at that point is 'control+V' which means paste and then hit 'Okay' when the box is populated with the new http.

Its way easier than that sounds.

Jeff

That seems to work. Many thanks Jeff. It's clumsy but I think I can get the hang of it.

If you mean the funny blue boat under blue and green spinnaker, that would be 'Synergy', my funny blue boat, designed by some whipper-snapper named Bruce something. And that would be me single-handing on a day that was probably a little bit too windy to be single-handing but the mid-teens winds, gusting to near 20 knots made for a very fast trip to a lovely quiet creek for the night. My grin was almost as wide as my spinnaker.

The cutter is looking great with its log rail painted.

Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters

Jeff:
I was just having some fun with you. How was the single handed dowse? Getting it up is easy. Relatively.

Yep, the cutters are looking fine. I have some issues with a few aesthetic decisions, i.e. why is the bootstripe 1.5" more narrow than I specd? but those will just have to wait for the next hull. All energy now goes into getting no. 1 in the water.

I knew you were pulling my leg. The douse was a bit dicey. I had left clearance to leeward to turn down onto a run and douse behind the mainsail. But I normally roll out the jib first so it can act as a 'spinnaker net' and keep the sail from getting a wrap.

I didn't this time and the head of the sail blew into the space between the pole lift and the mast and managed to jamb cleat itself between the pole lift and the mast at the sheave. I started to try to go forward under the boom so I could get below the sail to free it, but my harness pulled up short. It did not occur to me to drop the pole.

So I did what i did not want to do, and pulled down very hard on the sail to free it, at the risk of tearing it. I still need to check and see whether there is a tear. On the other hand I am not too concerned since this is the chute that is nicknamed 'patches', which is why I am flying it single-hand on a cruise.

The cruise was lovely with one of the most dramatic full moon rises and my friend John Zseleczky (spelled like it sounds) playing Bach on his chello a few hundred feet upwind of me. John was single-handing his Pearson 30 but had a harder time carrying his chute in the gusts and took his down shortly after this picture. (The wake around mid-ships is his keel at the surface.) John did a great job getting his boat under control and doing a controlled drop.

Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters

Jeff :
In 20 knots I would have thought twice about hoisting the chute on the Esprit. In fact, I'm pretty sure I would not have done it. It was a big, masthead fore triangle. I used the 1.5 oz. for cruising for its durability. I had a Spinnaker Sally (remember those) but it was so complicated looking that I never used it. The company gave it to me free. They did not last long on the market. Today with socks or top down furlers and asyms it far easier. But my days of flying any chute by myself are long gone. Good on ya having the cajones. A day to remember.
