Something everyone should actually read...

Interesting, complicity is such an apt but ugly word, and some information you might find helpful if you're needing lead for a keel/ballast...

Here's a blog post you should really read and think about.

Really.

Not that I agree with it at all but it really is something you need to consider before you spend any money on the cruising dream or sail away into the sunset.

One bent stanchion...

In the "Really Rare Thing" department some politicians doing something right, regarding John Oliver and the Guam case, and offhand I'd think New Jersey might want to re-check their math on this one...

So, Erika is now someone else's problem leaving "So It Goes" with one bent stanchion and the hindsight knowledge that, given enough wind, a Hobie Mirage Oasis double kayak weighing 93-pounds can fly.

Storm day...

Granny starvers, here's a thought, and something about climate...


I's crossed and T's dotted... Nothing to do but wait and read a book.

Small works...

About that dumb idea, some really, really good advice, and in the "not exactly surprising is it" department...

Here's some proof positive from David Bold that you don't need a fifty-foot boat to sail across the gulf stream and cruise the Bahamas with some style.

the morning after...

Three puppies on Guam, a stop on the campaign trail, and Chuck Wendig recaps the Hugo awards (well worth reading!)...

Danny a non-event gone by and waiting for Erika to come visit. So much for boat projects getting done this week!

A bit of weather music...

Some bad news, some good news, and about that "sharing" economy...

and speaking of the weather...

Someone has a good idea, a nautical conundrum of sorts, and about that jerk on the Republican clown car...

Cunliffe has something important to say about forecasts.

Speaking of a certain Clash song...

Some needful common sense, the end of the movie industry I grew up with, and somehow I'm not sure inspirational is a word that fits here...

Meanwhile, I'm in the middle of doing the H-Ting two step at the moment so might be a little sparse on the blogfront for the next week or so.

Well it is August...

What's important healthwise, some apt graffiti, and in the "with great glee" department...

Well it's that time of year again.

Did someone say scow?

How best to deal with drought, kinda depressing, and why AT&T is just about the last company I'd choose to handle my phone/internet needs...
