I love sailing!!!

 

i started sailing when i was 8 old in an optimist. this small one-design dinghy that looked like a bathtub. great for little kids.

i was so little and they dumped me in a boat and sent me out on the water. i went to all sorts of regattas in this bathtub.

 

then i moved onto the international 420 class(little ironic) a two person one-design racing dinghy. these boats capsize so easily.

i got to sail in the worlds once. i usually sailed as crew. i miss it so much now. maybe i'll get a laser or a laser radial so i can go out sailing by myself.

 

oh i miss sailing

lasers are nice. i can't hold them down on a windy day though cuz i'm too small, but i think a laser radial would be just right.

 

i love the trap except if i have to fly the chute on a downwind reach, it's hard to hold the lines and stay out and keep everything trim. it'll fuck you up too if you capsize while on the trap or if there is a wind shandow and you get dunked in the water or sent into the jib. i used to get so many bruises!

 

do you sail international 420s or club 420s?

is that your cat?

 

crap. nice

 

i haven't sailed them at all. the closest i got was a trimaran we sailed through the carribean. very stable it was great for shallow water and rougher seas, less up and down sicky feeling.

 

i like dinghys though

Coolest Thing About Sail Boats

 

NO RENT

NO GAS EXPENSES

NO STOPPING YOU FROM SAILING WHEREVER YOU PLEASE

YOU CAN BUILD A SAILBOAT YOURSELF

YOU DON'T HAVE TO ANCHOR IN A "MARINA" THAT COSTS MONEY

AS LONG AS THERE IS WIND, YOU ARE GOING PLACES

 

I had an acquaintance in San Francisco that built a sailboat out of a WWII 60-man Navy lifeboat. He bought it for $500 from a junk yard down on Third Street. Managed to get it sealed up, and turned it right-side-up with a forklift, then moved it across the junk yard to a canal that connected with San Francisco Bay rolling on telephone poles, the same way they built the pyramids. They launched it with a pick-up truck. Then, using long ropes, they pulled it, from wharf to wharf, until they got on the north shore of the Peninsula, not too far from the Marina District. They wanted to sail it across the Bay, so they rigged up a pole and a sail made out of a tarp, but it wasn't big enough to provide enough weigh for the rudder to function, and they drifted out into the Bay, dead in the water. They had no motor, and no oars long enough to row.

Finally a power boater took pity on them, threw them a line, and towed them across to the marshes on the Sausalito side. There, they pulled the lifeboat ELEVEN MILES through the marshes along the bay shore, to get to an anchorage in the Upper Bay. He was paying $50 a month to dock there. That summer he decked over the boat with steel plate, creating a houseboat, and lived on board. It took about four or five years, but he eventually outfitted the lifeboat with a sloop rig using hand-shaved telephone poles as masts. He built a huge "lathe" out of scrap steel, and "turned" the phone poles the same way they built masts 150 years ago, shaved them down with a draw knife.

It had a wood-burning stove, bunks, a galley, a chart room, fo'c's'le, sail locker, the whole deal. Last time I saw the boat he was considering adding a lead-filled keel, because it did not handle well at all with the original lifeboat keel. He sailed it all around San Francisco Bay, as long as the weather was okay. Last time I saw it, it had no engine at all, but he was considering adding a Perkins diesel, because the propellor shaft and packing nut and shaft bearings were all still good.

 

I love sailing and sail boats. I say we all quit our jobs and sail to the Bahamas. And drink Captain Morgan for breakfast.

that story ended up so promising, kb, and the ending was a big let down, yet I like the story. That was cool how he got a piece of history and modernized it.

What?

 

You don't like rum for breakfast? Dang, homes, I thought you were a sailor. Even Marines like rum for breakfast.
