    Great shot! But you shouldn't be posting beautiful pics like that or everyone will want to be here. Maybe we should mention the black flies.

    And skeeters - don't forget the skeeters. Then there's all those lobster pots you have to dodge...

    We were rafted up for supper when Callsign took the pic in the opening post. Waxwing was sandwiched between Scout and Slipper, where the view looked like this:

    Yes, Coquina, built and sailed by Rob Hazard. See the photo in the original post for more of the boat.

    sheesh... and my boats are still hanging in the garage. Shame on me!
    I don't see your boom tents deployed. Sleeping ashore?
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    No, Rich, we slept on the boats. We rafted up to cook supper and have an evening visit before turning in, and we got some near dark practice rigging the boomtents.....happy to report that Waxwing's newest iteration works fine, with less windage, and easy deployment and take down....will have to get some pictures of it soon.
