Many of you know that I have a special place in my heart for skiffs. Some critics, OLE, look at these as not being boats. Okay, I concede that you aren't going to take your Aunt Martha fishing on it, but what a rocket! A big plus for me is that this boat can be built at home.
The new R Class hull designed by Dan Leech.
Here she is ready to go. The new lady is introduced to her admiring public. She seems to be watching her weight coming in at a mere 29kg. Atkins? South Beach? Nope, Kiwi!
Sorry Aunt Martha, you can't come! Look at her go! She makes me weak in the knees, how abou you?.
Nickmeister, tell me you're not a kook? The last thing the Keiki want are soggy gifts. Maybe Santa should stick to a Sabot with the kids.
Surfing Santa became famous a couple of years ago when he was arrested by the border patrol for penetrating US waters on his board. I guess they thought, "He has a beard and a bag with contraband. He must be up to no good.....Dude, he's an Evil Doer!"
Gee Dad, now what are we going to do? We're going to Euro-Disney.
With only 235 nm to go, Les Escoffiers are a sure bet to be the first to hit landfall in Salvador on their Open 50 multihull, "Crêpes Whaou".
Who said that multihulls suck? You know who you are.
The weather in the "City By The Bay" is wonderful. It's so darn distracting that I'm jonesing to be outside doing some bodysurfing. To compound my itchiness I stumbled across a video by the Nueral Surfer. Click the image to play.
Shorts and maybe fins. No stick required! How pure is that?
I think I might be evolving into a minimalist.
"Octopus" (Is it just me or am I in a James Bond movie?) has two helicopters with a hanger deck, seven boats, a submarine and a remote-controlled vehicle for crawling on the ocean floor.It must be nice to be mega-rich, but I don't see the thrill of owning a private ocean liner. I would rather have a fleet of different dinghies and a wooden schooner.
