Son of a biscuit!!!

Garden satisfactory. I got myself dismissed from service.

Start getting ready to sail and I hear “hmmm I wonder what the wind is really doing over there...” So I look through the trees at the water.

Fork me. That’s not the shimmering I expect. It’s more like broken mirrors. Check the weather station. 18mph sustained, gusts to 20.

Got to call it on that. I’ve done those conditions before and I’m willing to do them again. I’m just not confident in the newish set up. As dumb as I really am, I’m going to leave the actual sailing on the water for a lighter wind.

I never did get a chance to reshape the tiller bracket. That’ll be what I finish off today.
Well that just blows! 8O

If I was rigged with a reefable Bermuda or gaffe then I probably would have. The sprit is a bit tougher to reef the way I have it set up. Next sail I’m hoping to make reefable and solve today’s problems.

So there.

Well I guess it is good to see you are using the big brain every once in a while.

Started. Then she made me buy a new shovel. Once that was all done she pointed out the winds were ... windy. Now in all honesty, I'm not "afraid" of the wind or the water. Which is why I need to be stupid careful. Last time I went out I say "it's only 15, I'm good" but by the time I got near where I wanted to be... it wasn't 15 no more!

I'm just not that smart.

Today problems can be said to have started about May 18, 1988. Thats the day I met SWMBO for the first time. I was 15. I knew I was in trouble immediately. Best bad decision I've ever made...
