This dolphin was racing around our boat today chasing a fish. He caught the fish, raced by the boat and went back into the open water. The dolphin swam so fast, flipping and turning.

It has been kind of cold here lately, but we managed to get another baggy wrinkle made. We have done a lot of things that you just cannot see.

Baggie Wrinkles
01/03/2009, PC

Here we are making baggy wrinkles. What are they? "Anti chaffing", They cover up wire to line connections, so that the sails do not get worn when they rub up against the lines. They look like big pom pom balls. First we cut line into 18 inches, and tie it to the line, and finally wrap it around the area you want to cover to protect the sails. It also makes a good Santa Claus beard.

I'd like to see more of how baggie wrinkle is made. Pretend I don't know nuthin. Philip

Look at Santa!

Throw Ring


This was a white ring that someone threw out and Tom painted it red and put on the black letters. It was not a pretty sight when Tom found it but it doesn't look too bad now.
Today I painted a bit of white on the throw ring to accent the black letters.

New Line

Many hours have been spent whipping these lines, and there are still a lot more of them to do. We have put all new line on the boat much nicer than the ratty old lines that were on the boat before.
