what do you do when you cannot sail?

When not relaxing out on the boat, what do you do?


This is one of the vases I made on the lathe. The wood is spalted oak.

Ok, so what else do you do? NOT WORK!

That is very nice work.
Relax. Go ashore and walk on a beach or track. "sunset over the yard arm" which is a "refreshing drink" of your choice and nibbles in the evenings as the sun sets. Of course, the sun can be considered setting from late afternoon to early evening.
Polish a rail or two, those little repairs that are often needed, and relax again. A good book, a good movie, some music, or compleate silence. It's totaly upto you. Oh and you should relax some.

Very Nice work, Doghouse!

In the off season I sew...and sometimes knit or crochet. Embroidery is another craft I do in the off-season. Last year I embroidered the flag for our boat. I think Rick has a picture of the flag that he can post..

Doghouse and Knottybouyz,

Very nice work. I play with a scroll saw. I cut out a man's head and hands holding a pair of binoculars. You aim this object at nosey neighbors.

As I am a week away from sixty....after a relatively active sport life from professional football player to mountaineering, my on shore vice is golf. It requires discipline,integrity and you need to learn as a poet once said....to meet with triumph and disaster and as such is a terrestial reflection of sailing, as you seek always to improve. It is also a sport , whichever country you arrive at, you will find the opportunity to play and meet a diverse group of people with a common love.... as reflected in this forum.

Alan

When not working or sailing, I blow things up in loud online MMO's. (I'm a scientist... I'm allowed brainless hobbies )

Doing Nothing and Doing it Well

Or, to quote the all-time great boating cliche -- as Rat says in Kenneth Graham's The Wind in the Willows:
Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing -- absolute nothing -- half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Simply messing, . . . . about in boats -- or with boats. . . . . In or out of 'em, it doesn't matter. Nothing seems really to matter, that's the charm of it. Whether you get away, or whether you don't; whether you arrive at your destination or whether you reach somewhere else, or whether you never get anywhere at all, you're always busy, and you never do anything in particular; and when you've done it there's always something else to do, and you can do it if you like, but you'd much better not.

Boy that is the truth. I almost messed up big time last weekend. Went up the mast, and had to spin around to the other side. Chaffed my line so bad that it almost cut in half! Now I have to replace it, came dang close to a fast ride down the mast.
Here is a pic of another of my Hobbies.
