Yes I used to sail in SF Bay and the P Ocean. Farralons, etc. Rough water out that GGate.
I crewed on a 27' Triton that won a Trans Pac race from Hawaii.

Rough water in the bay

my bro-in-law has a 22' wooden Chris Craft,around 1964(i'll make sure later,but it's old and totally restored and a beauty!) 350 or so inboard(kripes i really shouldn't post this as i probably got it all wrong) anyway stubborn as i am,the fact remains the water under the GGB south of Sausalito,the Washing Machine,is a real treat to boat thru.Now i'm going back in my hole....

I like hearing stories about sailing. I almost succeeded in becoming a sailor, almost ;<(
Spent most of my time and money fixing shiite that either broke or rotted in two.

How bout telling us about the Pacific run over to Hawaii Sam, guessing the prevailing is out of south or am i way off as usual ..Whats the deal port tack over starboard back or did you run before it with one flying..Big tri's can get up to like 30 knots correct.. talk to us ho daddy boy..

I was introduced to sailing by a camping buddy.. retired Army Sgt. Major he had an old 16' McGregor catamaran (we raced against deck shoe wearing hobicats), and needed someone for jib and hull flying.. Red Neck Racers.. Home made harness, no deck shoes allowed... but telling you we could make those North's work.. This started with sail boards, and led to what we euphemistically called a racing cat.. i will tell you that i got good enough with sailboards to teach. (no john Kerry comparisons pls).. again i never put one of my boards in the water.. inland lakes its all speed as opposed to waves.. and 25 knots when your hanging off the boom less than 3 feet off the water is like the little geico pig.. pure adrenaline!

REAL close to windward.. Fall off just enough to get some serious sail.. id hang out with my home made harness.. I can see this as clear as yesterday.. Frank on the back of the tarp working main and rudder.. ive got the jib line running lose so i can get the best full.. If you've ever had a windward hull lift .. Not as heart racing as board sailing but so much more going on.. People always talk about sailboats being quite.. The winds screaming thru the lines and stays.. hulls pounding (remember this is a light weight 16) tarp shaking but the big noise is the sails.. We had to yell to be heard, and when that hull came up you couldn't help but start screaming like a 10 year old girl..

Always wanted to crew on a 12 meter.. i've never seen or been on one,. have ya ?

seriously rough.
I was lucky enough to sail to Hawai'i several times on a LGB, great fun ! My own boat would have been good for coastwise sailing but one thing after another kept it inside San Diego Bay.
I learned too late that antique wooden boats, even small ones, are expensive to keep on top of the water.

They wanted a color guard. We were standing between 2 rows of tables at parade rest. Some old shriveled up dude and his lard ass woman tried to squeeze between us and the table. She got nicked in the ass by a chrome bayonet fixed on a chrome & white '03 Springfield (wasn't me!)
She said; "These damn Marines won't move for anything".
I spent a large part of 25 years in S.D., loved it in the early years, got crowded and overrun with crime, sad.

Wow, any kind of white collar work at the Del has to be great, lucky lady !!

Just heading out the door, now i've got this lap top screwed up. Have to find spck before i come on tomorrow.. whats the old monkey and (sp ck prohibits use of the ac?) managed to lose all control features.. Convinced that all computer error should be refered to as doing a greg in the future..

Got a kick out of the hotel Del story.. Went over 25 years ago.. wanted to stay in the tower.. it was over a hundred a night for the cheapest room back then.. can't imagine what it would be today.. Marine huh.. Good thing lucky didn't hear her.. have old lady on a stick..Then make her clean up the chrome.. Right about the city and how beautiful it is.. So's Coranado.. tho things sure seem to happen over there.. night all..
