Anyways, less pics of your mug and more pics of the boat, eh?


As opposed to 200 posts in one month?

Why, you don't like my mug shot?

Yeah, I kind of explained the 2 year inactivity in the post that was removed. I have been using this web site as a learning tool about blue water boats and offshore sailing. Mostly my dream is to get a 42-45 foot blue water cruiser. Island Packets are very attractive to me. For some reason I kept very passive and never posted. Lots of reading though.

Got a Catalina 250 a few years back as a practice/first cruiser boat. I wanted to experience keel boats since I have been sailing dinghies at the age of 15. Its a good boat but already I want a bigger one.

at the dock

Racing night at the lake when there was no wind at all. Started handing over beer and made lots of friends that night for some reason

Going back to port.
