    Yes, a variation on that was noted at the time, too.

    At a motorcycle rally some years ago, a woman asked a rally goer, "Do you know know my friend, Bob? He's middle-aged, a bit overweight, got a beard and kinda of a bad haircut. Wearing a tee shirt and jeans."

    Thirne may have the right idea Do we need to put out a "WBF" baseball hat for those of us with less panache? By the way...I'm the "guy with the beard and the hat":

    After the WBF EBS... a mob of us wandered over to the local Thai restaurant for a late dinner. I thought there were 7, and asked for a seating for 7, but there were actually 10 (3 caught up as we got there?). The food was quite good. Not the best Thai I've ever had, but getting right up there. And the service was very good. They had no qualms about seating 7... then changing it to 10. No long wait. And all the split checks were handled with grace and dispatch.

    The night before, we'd gone to the pub - Siren's. Good pub food... but yikes were they busy. I've been there several times when they were busy, but that night they were also under-staffed. Took forever to get service. Had to go to the bar for our own drinks. We'd have starved to death except that my handsome twin kept catching the eye of the sweet young serving lass. He saved us!

    Another wonderful festival with a bunch of new folks! I missed the Thai dinner for the chantey sing, which was lots of fun.

    Steven - thanks for those. I though the mention of Thai food might shake that image loose. I forwarded your text, btw. You and your brilliant bride were champion guests. It was a treat having you. I also got to know Eric's sweetie for the first time this year. Another brilliant bride! And Jan, of course, has always been the creme de la creme!

    Oh... and in all the tumult... I see to have misplaced my memory. How frequently did you say I should expect a package from Black Dinah <G> Seriously good chit!!!!!

    Was that them towing in the little skiff that tried to escape at the height of the wind? Kudos for being "on the spot" as they appear to have been all weekend!

    I didn't see that incident. At that time, I was likely procuring either beer or ice cream with my twin.

    In other festival news - not gonna mention any names... just a reminder of what happens when you put the young and tech-savvy on the foredeck --

    Saw that down there. Stunning! I remember the Sea Scouts (Santa Maria Ship, as I recall) having a sedan cruiser (as I believe they were called then) very much like that and often wondered what became of her.

    Looks like everyone had a great time! Too bad I'm on the wrong coast. One of these days, we'll get out there.
    Come hell or high water, I'll be going to next year's WBS in Mystic even though it falls on my anniversary...

    Ah David you're killing me here. "Dreamboat-ish"? Suellen is a fine example of a Monk Bridgedeck. Nothing dream boat about her unless we are going to apply that term as a generic label for any motor boat built before 1960 or so. Mutter, mutter, harumph.

    Great fotos, everyone. Thanks, wiz, for corralling those Jan'riffic images!!

    Here's a flashback foto, from 3 years back. The Twins, in all their glory. I think at least one of us had a chemically-enhanced grin in place --

    Prime motivator to be at Wee Nip for Saturday EBS, I also noticed a good many wood boats laying about. Diane was a good sport to come along and very much enjoyed meeting and chatting with folks. Still mortified that I went temporarily mentally blank with Jeff (lot's of grey beards, and Diane did say there was a certain sameness to our general appearance). Alex sorry we missed unburdening some of your bilge load, did not see you at the boat when we walked by Sunday - scooted home. I thoroughly enjoyed catching up with a bunch of you, excellent turn out and great service at the Thai joint. Ian and Allison swung by the shop earlier in the week which was a treat.

    Believe we saw that Nanoship beating towards the ferry terminal Sunday afternoon. I thought the guy was nuts. Another person popped up from below. Next tack took them nearly back to Point Hudson. At which point they dropped sail. That's all I know.

    Watched this one get fussed over for a long time before they were ready to pull out


    Some kind of hard plastic cover over the cockpit.

    This little gem was prominently displayed in the boatyard next door, any ideas as to her design?


    She looked to be in beautiful shape until you got a look at her rudder


    Oddly out of place, or maybe they just have yet to get there.

    Nice to see all of you who showed up, see you next year.

    Nothing wrong with that rudder. It's oak; oak rudders do that. In fact, that one looks pretty darn good. Bucephalus's looks a whole bunch worse after a winter on the hard --a proper picket fence-- and it always comes back.

    That was a really sweet boat, though. If anyone knows more about her, I'm curious too.

    Just got back, whew. No pics. I was the old white guy with a white beard wearing a hat.

    Liked that power-with-sail-added boat, the blue one, just inside the entrance. Guy says he thinks it started out as a Poulsbo boat.

    What happened to the blue boat-building race boat, did it spring a leak?

    Thorne, nice steering gear on the Caledonia, but . . . if you go wishbone, make it plenty big so you can put the rudder way over.

    Big blow on Sunday, then it quit.
