At one time they saw the fundamental goodness in us boat nuts and thought that over time we could be changed for the better. But after 36 years, I'm slowly converting her over to my side; or I think I am...

Greetings,
I've heard it said a woman marries and hopes her mate changes and a man marries and hopes his mate doesn't. The keepers are the ones that have the saintliness to suffer us.

2nd pict: Admiral Linda hoping with full trust in her heart that Capt Art kept close eye on the other boats!, and, me watching some stupid/nutty Captains near running into each other (they also came way too close to us... I then made our Tolly zoom off at 22 knot WOT to get well away from the dumb acting captains) while we joined into ushering Tom Perkins' 289' length / 42í beam / 1,400 ton, square rigged, computer operated, $130M boat "The Maltese Falcon" under the GGB and into SF Bay... 9/27/2008!

Maltese Falcon goes under SF GGB:

What cute kids. The little one has a real sparkle in the eyes. You'd better watch that one closely.

In all fairness to Meg, I first raised the issue of buying our first boat 16 years into marriage, so I guess it's me who changed and tricked her into it.

We will soon celebrate 28 great years!

Hi Don

The song-words I quoted were from a 1969 +/- song played in Maine. They stuck in my head! At funny junctions they're worth mentioning... this time for conjunction with Jennifer's little diddy bout some ladies liking Boys with Big Toys.

TY for compliment on da G-Kids. Now 9 and near 12, both still (acting) sane! Each are great and were here to cook dinner for Linda and me last eve (every Tuesday itís a date). They live just a five minute walk, on our side of The Valley... in very rural West Marin County; 45 minutes to SF!

Pict is from top elevation porch, in front of our living room windows. Same view from my office windows with next lower porch in front! See the rural mansion on other side of The Valley (near top just left of center... looks tiny - don't it) with San Geronimo Valley Golf Club and Club House between us!

Happy Boat Daze! - Art

Nice to see all the spouses enjoying what we do. I just purchased an oceanside property where the husband done the boating thing and the wifey wasn't interested in anything water-wise. From the bounce his boat went up for Sale plus the property.. glad I was waiting in the wings.. not so happy for the seller though, he offered me $50K last month over what I purchased it for. When I said NO he then wanted to rent it from us.. Must be hard having a spouse pulling in a opposite direction of our interest.

1st pic - taken from wharf ( house in background, garage to left and brown storage shed for boating equipment on the right ), 2nd pic taken from front of wharf. Just behind my boat is where the new marina will be going..

What a lost for him and a gain for Peg and I

She was skeptical in this picture the day we signed. Could not have asked for a better summer for these trawler newbies.

RT,
Is that really you w the shades on? If so you're a good looking dude and I'm surprised you waited so long to expose yourself. Haha .. Sorta thought you must be or thought yourself to be rather hard to look at. Positively not so I'm glad to see. You even look like a master of a vessel too. Thanks for sharing.

Nice smiles in the group picture from everyone!

So, RT is a Bruce Willis lookalike? Compared to the Willis photo, I'd say.
