The Joy of Boating

...Boating and cooking, both at same time, is as good as sex. Or better?
Actualy, I don't know!

The Admiral ridding our 18'Cat "Aquaoolico", and the 86 y.o. in law enjoying the trip and the fishing!

All our wind has left to go help Sandy back east. So the water was unusually calm yesterday for around here. Even the cormorants were out enjoying the day.

I've come a little late to the joy of boating. Played around on a San Juan 23 off and on for about 15 years. We now have the Roughwater and am looking forward to many years of fun in the PNW.

Indeed. And Al- clearly you are right- Mark IS longing for a flybridge boat. Maybe you can occasionally give him rides in yours?

I did...



...and then 3 weeks later, he posts this.



"...I'm dreaming of a new flybridge..."

Hmmmmm, coincidence? I think not.

Notice my "death grip" on Al's flybridge. It was rocking and rolling up there as we were anchored in the middle of the Bay.
