Re: Eric Hvalsoe and the HV-16
If Eric doesn't show up with more pictures soon himself, never fear! I plan on taking lots of them this weekend when I meet him afloat somewhere along the northern reaches of Rosario Strait on Saturday evening.
I hope to get some good sailing video as well, of course. And we have to pick out a proper theme song for the video.
But in accordance with the standard WBF policy of an "overwhelming barrage of negative criticism", I have to point out that in all these years, Eric still hasn't come up with a specific name for his little lady. We end up just calling her "Eric's boat", because she doesn't have a proper name. What the hell, Eric?!? Quit slacking in this department, or we're going to have to stage an intervention or omething and name her for you! So help me, I'll put up a poll or something, and let even the Bilge Rats vote on it! C'mon, nobody wants that to have to happen!
Amphibious Macroplankton Oughtredia doublendus
Mostly found frequenting the littoral and estuarine zones in the southern half of the Salish Sea, though sightings have been recorded both north and south of this area, and occasionally, but rarely, inland, in freshwater environments. This species lives on micro-brewed beer and dutch-oven biscuits,and displays brightly colored nylon and gore-tex plumage during the rainy season. Approach with caution!
