    Default Jay is 84 today

    On June 14, 1935 I was dredged out of the bay at Newport Beach California.
    Seems like only yesterday that I was sucked up with a few clams, scollops and periwinkles and deposited here on the beach.
    Wooden boats have always been my main delight! I feel so very privileged to be able to share that brand of happiness with all of you here on this Forum!

    Have a nice Flag Day Bunch!

    Just a young pup! Hope your day is grand, Jay.
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    Way to go, Jay! Thanks for being here.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    We share a birthday, and a love of wooden boats. You've had more birthdays than I have and probably more boats. Happy Birthday Jay.

    Have a good one... or should I say, hope you had a good one. It's already 16 June here

    We are having a spar rib massacre today! Slow cooked over mesquite charcoal for ten hours in a Clay Kamado Oven, Baby backs, baked beans, margaretas and beer plus Cole slaw all followed by a Pavlova cake baked by one of my Aussie lady friends. She is married to my pal Todd Rogers. Todd owns Common Sense #1 and is restoring her.

    The Toyon Boat Club is open now for sure!

    Thanks to all! Have no fear! There is no way that am I letting the old man in!
