Sailing stories / 3 weeks, 3 states, 3 sails
« Last post by CharlieJ on Today at 02:29:51 PM »
On July 27th I flew to Wisc to visit Timm Rivette and his lovely fiance Bobbie, sailing friends from the Trailer Sailor board. I was shown around the area, and when the weekend arrived and Bobbie was off work, I got to sail in Lake Michigan aboard Timm's 25 footer. Was a great sailing day off of Milwaukee




And as you can see, Bobbie was SOO stressed out





A few days later, since I was so close I flew to Maine to meet and visit a sailing friend from here on  SailFar-- Jim_Me.
Jim had arranged for us to camp in Bradbiury Mtn State Park, which was near Portland

Here's our accommodations for five nights only saw one mosquito



and here's Jim and I



as it happened, two other friends from port Lavaca (and Sailfar) were cruising the area aboard their Westsail 32- Raylay and W00dy  :) Pictured here while we were touring the LL Bean complex in Portland Me



and since Mona was moored SO close, we HAD to go for a sail.. sailing on the Harraseeket River off Freeport. Sorry, no pics of that sail.

After I flew back home, my good buddy Robin sort of INSISTED we take Tehani out for a sail, since she had been slip bound since last year, which was very sad,

Again, no pics. I didn't have a chance to take any and Robin's are lost

But it was a great trip, and how ,many times do I get this kind of opportunity??

Oh and the flight home sucked due to weather- storms in DC and in Houston caused all sorts of delays, missed connections, bumped flights etc. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat

Thanks.  Jim took the one of the rosey lighthouse, which looks like good postcard material.  It boggles my mind how far digital pictures have come.  All those pictures are what's snapped with our (cheap, generic) phones.  Sometimes I crop them or fix underexposure in GIMP (open source Photoshop).  The future is now and it's pretty cool.

Checked out his blog and it's full of wacky boat pictures from his time in the islands.

The hogfish looks like a sweet boat indeed. Built for 36k in 12MONTHS! Impressive.

I seem to be repeating myself but.. progress is slow but steady.
The main part of the galley is don and I am working my way up the port side.

As photobucket have decided to start charging for their service I expect my images to disappear shortly so I am trying the "attachment option". We will see if it works.
