sunfish: sailing’s most popular dinghy. ever.

Laser Performance, the manufacturer of the Sunfish and several other sailing dinghies, created a nice little promotional video about the Sunfish. check it out:

Newton’s 3rd law of motion

for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

I admit it, I’m an engineer by day – and should know better about the physics involved here, but I still somehow didn’t see it coming.  my brother-in-law thought it’d be fun to jump off the Sunfish as we were approaching the beach.  seemed like a reasonable and fun idea to me – until the boat rocked backwards and dumped me off into the water as well!

everybody’s foiling these days.  will the Sunfish be next?

today’s tunes: Avett Brothers

this song, despite a strange title of “Murder in the City”, has a couple of my favorite song lyrics:

A tear fell from my father’s eye
I wondered what my dad would say
He said, “I love you and I’m proud of you both,
In so many different ways”

and:

Always remember there was nothing worth sharing
Like the love that let us share our name
Always remember there was nothing worth sharing
Like the love that let us share our name
