Since 1978 I have been fortunate to sail wooden boats. In 2006 I set out to find a Drascombe Longboat Cruiser for single-handed expedition sailing. This is the continuing story of how it came to be, our adventures, notes on the maritime world and other things I don't want to forget...

While in St. Augustine I went by my friend Edward's sail loft. We go back a long way and he has repaired sails, made covers for my boats, and helped me out uncountable times. He co-founded SPARS, a not-for-profit that teaches kids to sail in Optimist prams. If you're ever blown out or just down that way let me know and I'll give you directions...

Ed always looked good in pink

It's in there somewhere

Ordered chaos. Old guys seem to like to work that way.

Just Back from St. Augustine

We saw our old friends, ate good food, played a lot of music and enjoyed the beaches of Coastal Georgia and North Florida. Here are some pics from a day on the St Johns River...

Early Morning

The streets are like glass. Took a walk.. more of a slide.. and noticed a hibernating skiff snoozing under a white comforter. Wanted to wake her up but thought better of it.
Better pay attention. Working on my snow legs.
