Re: 1985 40 year fleet of flowers

 

Thanks for the links to the videos, Case. Stan Allyn was a character for sure! :o) It was fun to see the Fleet of Flowers festival from 30-some-odd years ago too. You were still in diapers then weren't you? <g> Too bad the quality of the transfer from tape to digital was do bad. <sigh> How many Tacklebusters has your uncle owned?

Re: Toledo Wooden Boat Show -- Register Soon!

Wonderful little boat. Has anybody considered a removable cabin trunk and doghouse? Water ballast ala SCAMP? Would be nice to counterbalance the windage. Some of Michilak’s micro cruisers with big cabins have flipped….you might’ve heard? Of course it’s all in Skippers judgement. I’d love to wander backwaters as it is.

Re: Fern Ridge Spring Messabout, May 20-22nd

I did a several weeks of contract work in Mar/Apr.  When suddenly the mask mandate went away, several people at work who had a cough dropped their mask like everyone else (but me).  Even wearing my mask most of the time, I got the cough from a guy near me.  Tested negative for CV, but still lost 3 days of work and then got let go 2 days after returning to work.  My wife got the cough from me that led to 3 weeks of misery.  Less than a week later, we both got some kind of bug.  She tested positive for CV, but I have tested negative every time.  She spent a couple weeks sleeping in the basement since I was negative.  Weird times---and a lot of people out there who are happy to spread germs again.

I had some fun and some health probs over the weekend. Thanks to everybody letting me out of some activities to recoup. Home now, and looking at the results of a home test shows I’m negative for COVID. So, just cold virus? I’m planning to rest up for a few days.
The sailing on Saturday was great! What a beautiful lake! Also enjoyed exploring the Jungle today. Glad to have friends in the know.

Re: Fern Ridge Spring Messabout, May 20-22nd

 

We had a fun get-together at Shorelane Park today. :o) The north wind set in early, so the sailboats had a nice sail over to the picnic spot. A bunch of Coots showed up by boat and car. The best turnout we've had for a while. A warm, sunny day and a full lake will do that. <g>

The crowd of competitors in the Dinghy Dash was a bit sparse (I think the Le Mans start may have thinned the field, with several being hauled away in ambulances, before they even reached their boats, after suffering heart attacks from the exertion <g>), but they all reached the finish. Elaine baked a beautiful chocolate cake with a negative image of the Triton YC burgee on top. It was much appreciated by the TYCers, and there was enough leftover for Coots. Thanks, Elaine! :o) TYC wants to do it again next year, if we'll let them. <g> Perhaps we can do some other joint Coot/TYC events in the future.

The north wind was still blowing when we sailed back to Richardson, with enough east in it that Pearl, with Elaine and John McC aboard and Elaine's kayak in tow, could get to the home on one tack, mostly.

Case cooked BBQ ribs and chicken for dinner Friday, with corn on the cob. :o) He bought enough firewood for a week, so we had a good BS sesison at his campsite. Thanks, Case! Tonight Randy T provided the makings for carnitas tacos, and there was leftover corn and chocolate cake. :o) Thanks, Randy! More BS ensued.

Tomorrow we're gonna do a Jungle cruise, in the motorboats Ginger and Fish Taco.Should be fun. :o)

Photos soon...

Re: [AtkinBoats] Sad news

Edward Epifani
 

Atkins boats will always have a special place in my heart, poured over the designs a a kid. They exude a perky,tough, cheerful optimism . There is a 45’ ketch in Eureka, immaculately maintained. Low cabin trunk with wide side decks over a deep slack bilged hull, fine entry. Two strake bulwarks, and The side decks make you feel safe and welcomed handling sail. Real sea boat.

Salty little craft with all the character an Atkins is noted for. On larger designs they used a keyhole pattern for interior bulkheads assuring strong support and a definite separation from compartment to compartment, depending on size.

I used to operate Atkins design boats on Crater Lake and worked on one of his cutters in the boat yard @ Port Townsend. A great designer. I'm sorry to hear of Pat's passing.
