I finally got me to the library & stuck a bunch of my EC 2007 photos up. They're straight off the camera, unedited, the bad along with the worse. Ignore the automatic copyright notice, make copies if you want....

... Also I put a video (only worthwhile one I got this year) of the Team RAF boats whooshing past me.

Finally, here is a video of Roonio, (a catamaran that is supposed to enter the EC next year) launching through the surf. It was designed by Jeff Gilbert and built by Paul and Bill Moffett.

... now back to our regularly scheduled show...

Hello, I thought your online magazine might be interested in a boat I've built. It is a ten foot kayak made from PVC and tarp.

I remembered to put the camera in the truck before going to work today, and stopped by to see the clipper ship "Stad Amsterdam" which has been moored in Galveston the last couple of days.

Here's a nifty site. This was obviously created for runners, but a sailor type person could use it was well to calculate distances along shorelines, or in their favorite sailing hole.

Here is a Jimmy Skiff blog from Ron Paro. Jimmy Skiff is a design from Chesapeake Light Craft.

 

click to enlargeI drove up yesterday and attended the Lost Coast chapter's Noyo River Row at Albion, California. Winds were light, the river low and seagrass plentiful, so everyone but the guys in the Faering rowed -- they managed to sail up and back, quite a feat!

Most of the boats were Whitehall or dory designs. The green dory skiff appears to be a modification of the Chamberlain dory skiff, done in ply with a wider bottom.

click to enlargeA couple seasons back one of New England's kayaking clubs organized radar tests with a Massachusetts Coast Guard search and rescue station.

It was a miserable wet day with torrential rains.

The results of the radar tests were equally miserable: watchstanders reported they were unable to distinguish kayakers radar screen clutter
and chaff. It was a sobering visit.

I've suggested that this guy should write a report for Duckworks, and I think he may well do so.

For the last few years I have collected zillions of kayak related URLs. They tend often to be hard to categorize. I am now using an online service called http://del.icio.us to help out.
