I've been an avid sailboat racer for 40 years, never gets old.


Here's a picture from Newport, RI at an early season tune up in 2019. I've done thousands of ocean miles on this boat since it was new in February 2018. The boat belongs to a friend of mine.

My dad shared a 1/4 interest in a 32' racing slough for years, a long time ago. The "Scotch Mist" We used it far more than our 1/4, I was always fishing off it at the docks.

I took it out once with 2 buddies while I was in HS. The wind was blowing hard directly across the harbor entrance, and we ended up on the rocks. Harbor patrol towed us back to the dock, and when my mom showed up we were in the water re-glassing some of the damage on the bow.

They're ships, you can put a boat on a ship but you can't put a ship on a boat....

And yes they are boats.

Peace, and thank you for your service.

I was never so proud as when my daughter got back from flying a C-130 Hercules from Nova Scotia to England and back for the first time.

I'd like to think I pointed them all in the right direction.
