New Year's Eve Pictures





Skating in St. Pete



I think this is one of those container sailboats that have a really narrow beam and can be put into a container ship.

Boat show was sweet.

We had a great time this year as usual. Lisa was asked by Bob Bichin to help chuck a bunch of kookiness into the crowd as I sat in the lone chair we both shared. The party see,Ed a bit more under control this year compared to last year,

We blew off the Sat sail and headed out for an early Sunday sail. The night previous, I had to make a night run to a 24 hour Walgreens to pick up ear plugs for theAmiral and SnoreEez so she could sleep.

We started releasing the binding lines and I fired up the iron genny. Got an overheat shriek alarm, shut down, waited a few minutes and realized we should go. We decided to do some scrubbing to remove bird droppings and that is when we did a MOB Drill for the brush Lisa lost. It is still lost.

A good time was had by all.
