But it sounds like there was still a lot of fun to be had by all the fans in Bermuda. Who's gonna watch the playoffs tomorrow? America’s Cup Challenger Playoffs Postponed, No Wind >>...

    Favorite vacation as a child

    I'm always looking for cool places to go and fun things to do for kids and/or adults. I was thinking about my favorite vacation as a kid. Of course it involved sailing.

    Refinishing Super Sunfish

    Sorry the photos aren't very good. The garage is a disaster and my step-son decided to use it as his table to build his own boat. I just snapped these really quickly before work. I can clean it off and get better pics tonight or tomorrow...

    Refinishing Super Sunfish

    Does anyone have any suggestions for refinishing a Super Sunfish? We've only had it about 1.5 years, but it's a 1974 model.

    Funny boat name

    I thought there was a thread to post funny or unique boat names but I couldn't find it. Anyway, I was driving the other day and saw this boat. Unfortunately the antennae got in the way but the name of the boat is Poopie! Haha!! Only in the south!
