  1. yes exactly. Your 26 is so close to my 27, but If i remember right from the pictures I have seen, the 26 did not have a V-birth.. My Girlfriend and I just spent a week on here sailing from newport up to woods hole and back. enjoyed cuttyhunk, hadley's harbor and a few little coves in-between. Hit almost 10 knots broad reaching with the tide.... SO MUCH FUN
  2. ohh.. A 26 D is a rare bird! nice. I never thought i would love this boat as much as I do.. although, i wouldn't mind going up to a CD 30 to gain a better galley
  3. I second the laser suggestion. I used to race them competitively. A sunfish is an uncomfortable slug compared to a laser. But... if you want to bring your family sailing, forget the sunfish and forget the laser.. go with an okay daysailer or some sort of trailerable sloop with a main, jib and a little cabin in the bow to stash your such and stuff... I bought a Cape Dory 27 this spring and have been having the time of my life on it and am sort of upset with myself for not doing this sooner..
  4. I read threads like this and i realize how out of the sphere of normalcy my life/career is. I haven't received a paycheck in 20 years. Retiring to me is something i can not grasp. I will probably die on my glassblowing bench when I'm 85.
  5. Levon gets my vote.
  6. True.. this is the best bet for fin based action now.
  7. Thats an awesome score. Esta's was Block Island's 'department store' back in the 50s 60's and 70's. There is a little square on water street called "Esta's park" in memory of Esta Grey. These plates are a hot commodity on the island and I know a few people who have the full set. If you want to know more about this, i can put you in touch with a store owner out there who knows all the details.
  8. ​give you - "The Purple Clam" Enjoy
  9. I prefer Pacifico over negro modelo.
  10. Trump probably authorized the leak to distract from the healthcare fiasco and the fact that dapl will be pumping oil in a few days.
  11. I just thought.. lets see whats going on 11 minutes in.. OMFG... DAMN YOU WEEWEE..... LOL.
  12. Why did the protesting feminist cross the road? to suck my *&%$
  13. when i was a kid I spent a lot of time fishing at the local reservoir. I kept noticing dead swans and one day i met a biologist who was collecting one. He told me that a long time ago there was a lot of bird hunting on the reservoir and these swans would eat the lead shot and eventually die from lead poisoning. This was back in the 80's..... If man does not learn from the past, he will repeat its mistakes.
