    I totally agree. But the biggest bright spot of 2020 was the birth of our first granddaughter.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    Happy Thanksgiving guys.

    I'll sure miss rowdy grandkids this year - but here's hoping for next year!

    Happy Thanksgiving! No grand- or great-grand children here, but we do have a new puppy to be thankful for. Plus the continued health of our family and friends. Here's hoping that we may all wrap up this dismal year with grace and good will, and then move on to rebuilding all the things that have been broken.

    Wholeheartedly agree on the upcoming new guy in the oval office. My stress level has dropped considerably on that front. And the three new vaccines are huge rays of sunshine. We are missing our family and friends... this is the first t-day not eating with our best friend and her family since a long time ago. But she and we are all healthy and another holiday will be along when we can be together.

    Maybe best of all right now... I've got a pie baking in the oven and bread proofing!

    Happy Day to all.

    Since this is the boat-related deck, I am thankful for my boating friends and family and for the boats who have carried me safely and beautifully.

    So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

    THanks.
    It’s loosely based on Joel White’s Fox Island Class design. Purely a daysailer.
    Built in cedar strip composite.
    To keep costs reasonable, I’m using the keel and rig from a J/24 that had the balsa disease.

    ^ Sheesh, Jim... that is absolutely fantastic workmanship!
    Do you build on your own or in conjunction with others?
    Sure wish you'd do a build thread.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    Fuzzy photos hide a lot. This project is solo. Covid, you know.

    Regardless of size, I call all my boats 30 footers.
    Best viewed from 30 feet away.

    Agreed. My 2 new great brands happen to be twin boys. Their mother will see that they grow up sailing. Big brother started at 2 months.
