Re: Nautical Oddities

Hadn't seen the ad or didin't remember it or I would have gotten the referrence.

Sorry, if I were on the other coast it would be a consideration. Here I want a Cal36.

Also, now that I think about it, MdR is also in Nueva Espana, it stretches up past SF. When you get out of the Pueblo down this way to the Mission, let me know and we can hook up. How old are the kids?

I'll keep my eyes peeled for a Cal...

Yes... Nueva España must have been quite the hoot to have lived in the heyday. ...

Kids be 9&11... You can be certain I will let you know next time I am there. .. sometimes I stay with my brother in Escondido. ..

Yes Rick, I definitely think there's a valid argument for the aft section becoming a full planing vessel...

That kind of reminds me of the miniature city with canal at Madurodam, Netherlands.
