Hey, Gang..

Guess I should finally poke my nose up out of the woodwork, or simulated woodgrain as the case may be. Realized I’d been registered since 2015 and hadn’t really engaged the forum beyond lurking in the bilge. So here we go:

2012 M, Blue. Purchased in 2014 and considered naming “Buick” since it had pretty much become a land yacht due to the hassles of the yard in the marina I was keeping it in. Moved to a new house with actual room to keep it home (a stipulation of any property we looked at) and there were always excuses for not hitching it up and dropping the ol’ tub it the water. Underpowered 93 Cherokee mostly... Finally bit the bullet last year and slipped it, and got in more sailing in 5 months than the previous 5 years.

So now that I’ve gotten it out there, broke a few things, and learned that some bits weren’t set up correctly by the dealer, I can perhaps be a productive member of the community...or at least a source of dumb questions!

I think Jane Goodall said something about observing a population before trying to integrate into it...

Allatoona. Northern GA surrounding Red Top Mountain State Park.

Chiles, pineapple, anchovy..check.

I was a good boy this year and there was a portable pizza oven under the Tree-Rex this year. We usually do a variety of smaller pizzas with varying toppings, so everyone’s happy. Not portable enough for the boat though. :(

It just so happens my neighbor in the slip next to me has an X, but it looks like it’s not moved in awhile, and apparently the owner rarely shows up.

Suddenly there was another X at the front of the dock last season, but after a short time converted to trawler then shuffled off somewhere else. Close to end of season, I guess, so may be back. Was called, “Going Merry.”

We almost have our own Mac fleet, if anyone else will show up to claim their boats.
