Blanketing opinions that I'll probably regret soon.

These Four Photos are Reminders of the Best Sailing Summer on Record

For the past two weeks I've been working my ass off on my new boat: sanding, sanding, sanding, sanding, sanding, sanding --- painting with roller and brush --- with a break to sand for hours --- gunking on some caulking (more caulk on me than the boat) --- putting on the third, fourth and fifth coat (yes, the fifth).

Now I'm now on business in a different country -- Texas. I'll post pics of the boat's progress soon, I promise.

So to remind me what I'm working for, I'd like to post my favorite pictures from the sailing trips I took this summer.

Here's a great shot of our ship's medic passing me a Marlboro. Smoking, drinking and sailing go very well together, and that should be little surprise.

This was in the middle of a lazy Chesapeake wind. I found that there was a step on the mast and just perched there for a few minutes. G. McKenna is in the background:

Here's me in front of a stump on an island that's only accessible by boat on the Chesapeake. I'm keeping it a secret, but one day maybe I'll take you there:

Here's Chris throwing a 16 foot cast net in a remote anchorage in the Chesapeake. This is what inspired me to purchase two cast nets from ebay:

just curious- what marina/dockyard did you haul your boat out at? the pictures remind me of many a fall/spring day spent working on my parents old 25' O'Day

I think you're talking about the photos in the next post up.

I hauled out at Atlantic Marina on the Magothy River in Pasadena, Maryland. Here's the website.
