The Nereids were sea nymphs in Greek mythology. If you see a picture of Poseidon consorting with a bevy of nubile young ladies, those are Nereids. There's also a family of sea worms called Nereids. So "Nereid" is a pretty common name for a boat.

Captain Nat Herreshoff designed, and Herreshoff Manufacturing built, a steam yacht named Nereid in the 1880s.

Re: Very Cheap or Free Weekender

 

Welcome aboard, Pete! We'll make a Coot out of you yet. <g>

The Nereids are the daughters of Nereus and Doris, Poseidon married one of them, Amphitrite.

"They often accompany Poseidon, the god of the sea, and can be friendly and helpful to sailors....

"They symbolized everything that is beautiful and kind about the sea. Their melodious voices sang as they danced around their father. They are represented as very beautiful girls, crowned with branches of red coral and dressed in white silk robes trimmed with gold, but who went barefoot. They were part of Poseidon's entourage and carried his trident."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nereid

A good name for a boat.

But since when have Greek gods worried about a little incest anyway, or even cross-species trysts! ;o)

Dinghy Sails and couple rigs for sale, just hanging out

Electri-Cal
 

The new hip joint is coming Dec. 5 th., just waiting for that project to get with a couple boat and rc drone projects.  Not doing big boat anything for the time being.  Some other coots could do a coast cruise, sounds like fun, weather permitting of course.

Will have some sails for sale soon.  A Sabot type unstayed sail rig for a 7 to 10 ft.  Dinghy. A good Lido 14 jib with lines is also available. The jib is ready to go sailing on several appx. 15 ft. Hulls, might fit yours so let's talk.

John K. Is checking the good prices, but it would be good for a variety of boats, I could have the gear to complete this package. Even a beaching rudder for a small sailboat. Call for details from the Coors member list.

Thanks, Coots...  Cal

I'm gonna bet the Hayden Island he refers to is the one in Portland, so
it's really just a float down the Columbia River and not offshore. Unless,
of course, he picks the wrong crew to help him and they overshoot Illwaco.

Mike, you might post a note at a gate at one of the marinas on Hayden

open shop Saturdays, and see if anyone is interested in a boat ride. Maybe
get a free helper or maybe not too expensive.

I haven't connected with Kendall yet to get an appraisal of the sails. The Lido jib is a really nice sail -- I wish I could use it <g> -- I didn't look at the Sabot sail. I'll try harder to get ahold of Kendall this coming week. I've also got some unneeded sails. More on that next week...

Welcome aboard, Mike. I changed the subject line so it fits the subject. To start a new topic, just send an email to oregoncoots@groups.io ( oregoncoots at groups.io ).

What kind of boat did you get? Now that fall is here there should be some opportunities, between storms, to get downriver without fighting afternoon north winds. You might even be able to sail most of the way. :o)

Thanks for the reminder, John.  I plan to be there---it is always a great fall trip!

 As of now, I plan to bring the Acorn 8.  That boat travels in the back of the van, which in turn limits the use of the van for shuttle duty.  If others have a shuttle-friendly vehicle, bring it along.

Re: Coots' Annual Yaquina River Halloween Float, October 26th

 

The Weatherman is promising beautiful weather for the float next Saturday! :o) Knock on wood...

http://www.coots.org/mb/Halloween/

A discussion during Thursday lunch about what was probably the wettest Halloween float, when Darrell and I took our motorboats and stayed at the then-new transient docks in Toledo, and it rained so hard that night and blew so hard that it blew the rain right through Lazy Jack's side curtains and soaked the jeans I'd hung up to dry, made me think about taking Lazy Jack this time. In more clement weather.

Either launching early(!) Saturday and staying over that night, or going over Friday and staying two nights. The price is right -- Toledo now charges $0 a night at the Transient docks, with a suggested donation. I'll try to explain why sometime...

We'll see...
