    Facebook is a poor option for photo-hosting to this forum, a lesson I figured out the hard way. The links don't last.
    There's the plan, then there's what actually happens.

    Thanks. The part I was missing was the 'uncheck the "Retrieve file and reference locally" box.

    Thanks for the tip Ben. I'm relatively new to bookface and wasn't aware of that

    Todd Rogers, who is restoring "Common Sense 1" a sister ship to "Red Witch" Common Sense 5 stayed with us during the festival. He was kind enough to have a poem writen for ou sloop "Red Witch" by the young lady who sat with a typewriter writing poems for a dollar all three days. Just name your boat and she did the rest. Here is what she wrote: I thought it was kind of nice! Jay

    "Red Witch"
    the grace
    of this gutsy
    adventuress

    the heart
    of a vessel
    who holds
    more than blood

    but can capture
    the life force
    of a universe
    that runs off wind
    & rain

    & races
    to the ends
    of the horizons
    over watery pathways

    I didn't go into the festival this year, but I did follow the schooners around on Saturday.

    Here's the scene on the nearby beach when you get up before dawn:

    I have no idea how Howard Rice managed to stow all that gear on Southern Cross:

    Partly it was because he spent some time sorting it out... and then took pains to put things back in the exact same spot every time.
