    So, my boat came with an old canvas cover, reinforced with fake leather in the right places, there are a few wear spots here and there. It has shrunk I guess? I’ll trade for something cool or the cost of shipping. Here are the pics:

    Winter storage covering

    I just put an ad in our local classifieds for a carport frame - no tent. I’m making a chicken run, so i’ll cover it in chicken wire. I got three calls and i’m going to look at an 8x20 frame this week. Once the tent fabric rots away, people don’t really know what to do with their frames.

    It is a yoga thing that you roll yourself on like a massage. I got it at Kmart for $15, I couldn’t find any funnoodles to use as padding. It works good and stays put where it is behind the slash guard.

    New John Howard style SF bunks

    So I managed to get the Sunfish all squared away, paperwork wise. Thank you AAA ladies! So today my son and I took the boat up to Crowley and met up with our friends and their tri-maran. They whupped us across the lake. But we had fun and some good sailing all the way to the middle of...
