aaaahh, boatman, mine havent been insurmountable--is all in the lattitude--or is it attitude... after all, my repairs turned out to not need to be as extensive as originally thought, so that is most positive, i am not on a calendar with this, and i am almost ready to exit sd bay...finally.
yes, sir, beard is good.

Yes - that is one of the best modern designs I have seen. No doubt if you zoom in far enough there are a few skimply clad models running around? Likewise, I bet the owner dosn't have to advertise on our dating group.

Thing I really like about Athena is the African Queen look. Comparing the two and saying which is better is like apples v oranges. (Blondes v redheads?)

I still think that the Maltise Falcon is just about the prettest large sailing boat around with her 3 unstayed masts that rotate to get the best wind and her sails that have the Junk look she is one of the cleanest looking boats around. I get a giggle out of the fact that the only time she can enter the port of San Francisco is at low tide because her masts are too tall and will hit the Golden Gate bridge at any other time. At low tide she only clears the bridge by 5 feet wow. She is beautiful inside as welland I think she is still for sale drool lol. G.
