Nautical Spring Fling...

Fisherman Larry was so desirious of his friend's boat last Summer that he decided to purchase one this Spring. He is a happy man now! See the happy man on his boat. I put the videos in the wrong order, second one first, so you may want to reverse the order to watch. We had our first lesson in "parking" and "motoring" yesterday. Today, we wanted to have our first sail...he untied from the dock, and tried to start, but stalled. We soon found ourselves in the middle of the marina floating the wrong way! A kind fisherman in a little boat pulled us back to our dock, where we found out what we were doing wrong, ....hmmmm, this is going to be an adventure!!!!

Congrats on the new boat. Looks like Captain Larry has it under control! Congrats to Mike for his PHD. Way to go Mike!! (I mean Dr. Starkey! I have a soft spot for anyone named Dr. Starkey) Watch out for the sun Larry..I heard you got a bit red!
