I still don't understand why a brand new boat has hull side ER vents. Is it cruising with its barn door open?

Our other boats were named Amazing Grace and this being the third one it was going to get confusing. So we shortened it to Grace and I named my brokerage accordingly. I think Grace sort of sums up the ethos of trawler cruising. Thanks for asking.

They probably work for the Navy and attached eavesdropping devices to your hull...

This doesn't look particularly good. I feel like a race car driver, you guys are only watching to see the wreck!

Just blew through here too. Wind first, big gusts....Lots of lightening in the distance, then HUGE sheets of rain. Now just light steady rain. All the wind is right smack infront of the precip. Tornados are in some of the line...here just north and west of us moving into VA.

Throw out a couple extra lines and check the portlights! It will be quick and fierce.

(small note ** hoping none of the twisters touched down)

David, always use the advanced function to post pics. You are not limited by no of posts except for posting links.

In advanced scroll down to manage attachments, click on that then click on browse, and go tp your photos, select the ones you want, one after another, (take care not to choose too may at once), then select upload...wait until that has happened, then scroll down to the bottom of that screen and click on close this window. Scroll back up to the submit button below where you see you attached image files and click on submit. It should then load the pics in the order you selected them.

NB. Depending on what browser and type of computer you are using, you might need to scroll round a bit to find the aforementioned buttons for browse, upload, close window etc.

Thanks Dave. We're actually at anchor. Do not like to be tied to hard things like docks when weather is threatening.

Well Daddyo, that storm slowed you a day, you meander and enjoy the sites some more and my brother TomB and I will be fighting to buy your first beer in Oriental on Friday.

Safe travels.

Thanks again for all the ICW porn.
