Water doesn't have to be salty to be fun, does it?


Now, I'm not going to mention any names should anyone wonder who came up the the acronym NAGS for this little group of square sail lovers but he might be the guy in the Mackinaw Boat.


NAGS is an off shoot of Boats of Wood, world headquarters, David City, Nebraska.

So, check in here: http://www.imagestation.com/album/?id=4292037367&code=2515307&mode=invite and enjoy sailing with us as it was last fall and so shall it again be soon.

Oh dear. a learning experience. Me I mean, trying to work out this new format.

Thanks for the pics Norm ( and the pointer to the new URL.)

Wow, what beauties, Norm! I really enjoy your imagestation journals, so don't stop posting to them. By the way, isn't it depressing to sail with land in sight all the time? smile.gif

Point of order!

That last one's not a gaffer! ;)

They're all beauties, nevertheless. :D

Close enough, Wayne, close enough fer us ole NAGS. Why, we may even have a pointy topped sail among us come spring.

You go, Norm!! Keep up the good work, I love seeing the 'inland' sailors at work. Besides, If you can see the the shore, makes me feel a little 'safer'. smile.gif

Nothing wrong with being able to see the shore - hell's teeth, it's the only way I know where I am ;)

Who'd a'thunk folk from corn land could make such good boats.

Smile when you say that, matie.

Hmm, I wonder what we could do with a slurry of ground cobs and googue.

What is the aging part all about. They look like pretty new boats to me.
Nice job Norm.

Now, Chris, if you could see me try to put my sock on the right foot in the morning you would appreciate the defination of a gaffer as given by the American Heritage Dictionary, cf. No 2:

gaffer (gfr) n. 1. An electrician in charge of lighting on a movie or television set. 2. Chiefly British. An old man or a rustic. 3. Chiefly British. A boss or foreman. [Probably alteration (influenced by grandfather) of godfather.]

You're in Skuthorp. All you gotta do is show up for the meetings if you feel like it and you can ignore all my email pleas to please let me know if you are getting my emails--sort of like most of them do.

Dang, winter has finally arrived. Snow is falling horizontally and they say we should be 12" before morning.

electrician, old man, boss..... I thought by the looks of the boats, that you were referring to the stick that goes up the mast with the sail hooked to it.
Silly me.
What makes the left sock go easier?

What makes the left sock go easier? you ask? Left hip acts it's age. Right hip thinks it's 90 or a hundred.
