Oh San Diego… If I ever leave you I’m sure I’ll regret it. December 6th, and here we were out sailing in t-shirts and shorts, with plenty of wind to mess around, and the only complaint being that the sun was too low in the sky. What problems eh? I’m more »
Webster’s dictionary defines a boat as a hole in the water into which you throw good money after bad. It is an old piece of fiberglass that sits in salt water with many, many metal parts. Do you know what a marine environment does to wire over time? To plastic? more »
Dan and I moved The Answer today over to a much more sheltered position behind Shelter Island. Go figure. It went pretty well. We blew up the dingy, took the tackle off the ball, and motored over to the new ball. The slime line was attached to everything. Amazing. We were more »

Dan and Jim needed to meet the other day, Jim just having gotten back from England with Kate. Of course, Jim and Dan don’t have an office, so S/V The Answer would have to suffice. I normally mind hanging out with them while they’re working, because I only understand about 47% more »
