Great pictures, thanks. Sometimes I miss messin with sail boats..

Now this is supposed to be a surprise for a brother? Or just you actually working on it? < VEG >

He does not know it is coming?

Not my business but good on you for doing that work.

I like before pics to compare with when you are out sailing.

Looks like it was rigged out pretty good in the lines that control dept.

Ya, Gus, my oldest brother and I bought it for our middle brother. He's got med crap that is going to immobilize him in the not too distant future, but he's been dragging on buying. He has lowball bid this particular model for a few years. We just bought it and will surprise him when he comes over from Jax, presumably to visit me. I'll send you a link to a bunch of interior before shots too. This sucker was rigged really well. We've undone and removed lots he won't need (it made 2 trans Atlantics). Older brother and one of his employees really know their stuff. I'm the cleaning guy mostly, and no mast climbing this time.

Awesome brothers he has. That must be a blast doing something like that for him. Real sailing family you are in.

Lovin the pictures.

Oh, I'm out of the climbing the mast business too. Bawahahaha

Wow, it like I am in a time warp man, far out. Same dude, same bike, same pose, same problem. I give him a 10 for consistency.

When I worked on and installed electronics on big ships I worked alongside a South African who did all of our cutting, burning, welding, fabricating, and various other problem solving. He lived on a 50 foot aluminum sailboat that he bought the plans for and built himself, just him and his wife. You talk about a guy with a true genius IQ. He quit his job and sailed the world for 13 years before settling in the U.S. Looked like the Gordon's fisherman and drank beer like an Aussie. I need to dig up a few photos of his boat. We sailed it out on the San Francisco Bay to watch the Blue Angels.

Want to say the ride today was great. I had a good time. Too long since I rode. Weather was great, Charlie chose some good roads, I had ridden most of them, but not enough to know them well. The ice was fun in my opinion, but wouldn't want to do it for very long. So was the ditch I rode in to avoid the uphill stretch of ice on the second leg.

See you guys next year. HNYYFF!
