I just returned from Antigua. Need instructions for posting pictures and videos here from an iPad. Thanks.
Wild action this year. 5 boats dismasted in one day. We measured one 38 knot gust. I was...
I think everyone here has seen worse. Good luck.
Saw her on Craigslist. Good score!
Stealing natural resources, promoting slave trading, cutting the natives out of the deal.
I need a bigger boat.
Sad, indeed. I don't think it's a surprise to anyone but....just sad.
Thank you! Any on the water pictures?
Great to see your work. I had a 25' "sleeper". No idea they made a 35
I believe our future is in good hands.
"Ugly" is pretty harsh. I think she's a fine looking yacht.
And that must be one pimped out duck punt you got.
It gives Yachting a bad name.
Sorry to hear that Ted. Such a loss.
Moody. Thanks, I enjoyed that.
Paul, Thanks for the info on the Sullivan.
I follow the project on Facebook now. I used to be "involved"
(Was first pres. and a founding board member) moved to California before she launched.
Yeah, thanks for posting this. I wonder why WB never had an article on the Denis Sullivan, Wisconsin's Tall Ship. If they did, I never saw it.
Damn, I'm 54.8 years old! Almost. 7-15-58 unbelievable! I'm the average American sailboat owner. Cool!
Are you looking for other donations? I have limited edition sailing prints from artist Chris Smith. Retail $60 each. There are really nice I can donate a full set (7 prints)
He's the kind of guy you dread being put on the midnight watch with.
I'm not surprised to here this. A about you later question, no one has any disposable income. I have a Catalina 30 on the market for half of Buc Book value. No lookers.
That waterfront used to be so great, just 15 years ago. They ruined it just like Sheboygan Wisconsin, and probably every other once working waterfront in the country. I understand progress, by its...
The vent is named after her (but I bet you knew that)
Hessle, Michigan (check my spelling on that)
Just 59. I did not know. A nice send off for a great guy. You guys are cool to have done that.
I am going. Will arrive April 16th
PREACHING (damn auto correct)
Schooner rat and Crazer, you got that right. New owner took off with her today,in the rain. Glass boats are nice but I guess we are the nautical equivalent of the "car show guys". I don't own a boat...
Just made the deal with a fine young man from Newport Beach to trade my Stephens Bros FC for his Catalina 30. He's thrilled to own her and will eventually cruise with his lovely girl friend to South...
Prefacing every statement with "ya know what..."
"Yeah...no..." Favorite of Ben Stiller
Who's the dish in the background?
In San Diego, $440.00 month 38' slip. Bathroom, showers. One could pay double that at many nice marinas in town. Esprit marina in Marina Del Rey is $120 per night for transient. Nice place.
If you have to ask, the answer is no. You got to really love everything about wood boats. Everything about owning them is tougher. Some yards won't haul them. Some marinas won't take them. Most...
Welcome Ian. Good luck, whatever you decide to do with her.
And to you and yours.
Looks like a lot of boat for the money. Get that survey and quote low. Good luck.
Never saw that before!
Paul, I owe you a drink. Thanks for turning me on to this awesomeness.
What would be wrong with a "Marketplace" section. Boat only merchandise for sale, trade or free?
Keep Em coming!
Looks like a nice project
My reaction is that the prices were a little ambitious. Hard
to say without seeing the boats.
Cool! Lots of Paynes. Not sure of the relation, if any.
I had that same bee infestation on my Stephens. Looking great so far. Can't wait to see the masterpiece when finished. Good luck.
Thanks for the rant. It happened in San Diego Bays A8 anchorage. The problem was local marinas, and individuals dumping the abandoned boats that they got stuck with, avoiding the substatial cost of...
well. ST J, thats yachting too. Your day will come.
and J Power, it doesn't HAVE TO cost a fortune. I see the kyack and stand up paddle folks smiling too.
Great comments, all. I feel better now. Just needed a nautical "bitch slapping". Back in San Diego tomorrow. I'm going sailing!
Thanks, from Wisconsin, for the great pics. (where it feels like the 1st weekend of winter). wishing you "a summer with a thousand July's". or in your case, January's.
