My First Sailboat
It all started when I acquired a slip for my beloved water ski boat
which I recently restored after 27 years of family fun. The new slip came
with a boat already floating in it which I expected to sell or sink.
I had never even set foot on a sail boat in my life. All that changed when
I did. I'm now hooked on sailing, and the power boat is still in
A New Home For Aquaries
On May 14, 2001, I donated Aquaries to the Santa Barbara Youth Foundation
where it will benefit a new geneartion of sailing enthusiasts. I have a
new boat now named Ferdinand.
|Thanks to the generosity and
patience of some wonderful new friends
at the Santa Barbara Yacht Club,
I actually learned to sail this thing. I even
know that "sheets" are not what
you sleep between, and that those
things cluttering up the deck
(above) are not ropes.
