the D’yer Mak’er

saw this photo posted on the Dinghy Shop Instagram account and had to wonder:

how can this boat builder not be called the D’yer Mak’er?

When I read the letter you sent me, it made me mad mad mad
When I read the news that it brought me, it made me sad sad sad
But I still love you so
And I can’t let you go
I love you
Oh, baby I love you, oh

tall ships and lasers

Photo by Karin Ziemer te Riele

found this over at the Laser Forum.

a side benefit of solo sailing

no one is there to hum annoying tunes.

JFK & Jackie on a Sailfish

a cool photo of JFK and Jackie with a Sailfish sailboat.

the Sailfish was the predecessor to the Sunfish. it was the first boat created by Alex Bryan and Cortlandt Heyniger – the founders of Alcort. the Sailfish is a board boat with a lateen rig, very similar to a Sunfish – but it was made out of wood and had a flat hull that you had to sit on top of while sailing.

the real American idol

to all those who have served our country, especially those who have laid down their life to protect our freedoms – we sincerely thank you.
