Y’all all have some beautiful boats!

Here’s pic of Everlasting Moon on the Indian River a few years ago.....
How do like your dinghy? We have a WB as well, love how it rows and we carry its sail kit on board as well. (Though I don't seem to use it as much as I'd like to!)

I love the WB....it suits my purposes perfectly! I love that it rows well for getting exercise and stealthy exploring of small creeks and inlets, the sail kit makes it a fun knock-about, and with the float tubes it’s easy to climb in and out of when snorkeling or diving. It handles two adults well, although in a chop you’re both likely to get a bit damp :)

It’s not a rocket ship under power, but I’ve never felt that to be a major drawback.

Isn't that where a boom normally goes?

Some bubblehead thought it was a good idea to move the gooseneck up, you know so they could clear a 2nd bimini. That made a dramatic difference in how the boat sailed. Now the goose is back below the black band where it belongs.

These are a couple recent ones actually. We were on a shake down sail a couple weeks after Hurricane Sally hit us. You’ll notice the rashed up top side and missing stuff on the top of the mast. A boat next to us rigging came loose and wrapped around our mast, tore the chicken, anchor light, VHF and some of the wiring out of the mast.

Very old picture but please forgive me, I'm a very old sailor and life has moved on. Halfway to Hawaii (i.e. over 1000 miles to the nearest land) on my Cal 40 sailing in the first Single-Handed Transpac Race. 13 days, didn't win but it was a great trip.
