    Default Home for the winter

    She came home on Friday. Put a lot of hours on her and a lot of miles under her (for an old peach basket at least). We made it back down to New Jersey for two weeks (from the Ct/RI boarder), eastern Long Island and Mystic Seaport a bunch of times.
    Her 64th year is a wrap, and was a good one.
    (Have no idea how to rotate that last one.)

    Excellent! That is a VERY nice boat. I'm glad you are able to enjoy her so much.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    Looking great as usual Ned. I look forward to seeing her go back in the water in the spring for another year of cruising.

    Any single boat project will always expand to encompass the set of all possible boat projects.

    Life is short. Go boating now!

    Ned I earned a pretty good living ‘pushing pixels’ about in Photoshop for a couple of decades. Having proper tools makes otherwise tough tasks a pleasure.

    One trick I’ve used since for this doesn’t use PS if you use an iPhone for taking pics: simply e-mail yourself the image you want righted, that’s often’s enough. Once you’ve received your message, save the duplicate image for posting.

    Bottom and props look very clean. Secrets? Scrubbed regularly in water?
