  • Coastrat, which one of these guys has to "catch" their mast when de-rigging? That was a very good catch yesterday, I'm just glad my little boat has a hinge for that particular step in the process. Three Cheers for da Chocolate Skinned Ladies of New Orleans!!!

  • Quoteere were some lovely chocolate skinned ladies from new orleans doing a photo shoot in red white and blue bikinies...made me proud to be an american!

  • I am always looking for a faster way to rig and unrig the boat. This mast catching sound like it might speed up the process. Please describe how this was accomplished and how much time was saved. Would it be possible to reverse the process and toss the mast up. This might save even more time.
  • yes, it was very patriotic, those nice young ladies inspired us with there hard work and determination to make sure the ole red white and blue was proudly represented on there

    lovely young skin...aaahhhh...what nice young people. one girl wasn't as patriotic as the others as she refused to wear her stars and stripes top...i don't know if this was a protest or the top was uncomfortable but she just didn't like that top. naturally forgot the camera. terry missed it by 1 minute. this may have helped pioneer the "new,fast" way to lower the mast. not being familiar with "modern" cats(stuck in the 70's), i was no help at all, i just witnessed a perfectly executed fair catch...as done by a veteran high school football coach. if i had the video, it would be a valuable coaching tool for all kick and punt returners. think of the time we saved! a dozen seconds at least...thinking a big can of aqua net hair spray, a thick steel pipe, a paper towel, a big potatoe, a lighter, and "BANG!!!", instant mast raise!

  • Coastrat, check you email for documentation of the photo shot. I would upload them here, but I'm too lazy to figure out how to. But, I've seen that you have that ability, if you want to share.
