    Laser Island Voyages Back In The Day

    Quick update: the kittehs & I are in the short-term rental, our glamping adventure lasted 47 days/46 nights, a personal record for me (and the kittehs, LOL). We'll likely remain in the rental over the winter as I carry on this crazy dream project of building a bad@$$ home/slash/mini pool hall in...

    Why did you choose sailing over a Powerboat?

    Sailing = free power, powerboating = $$$ spent at the fuel dock or service station. A no-brainer for this notoriously cheap b@stard... "YEAH, I'LL TAKE FREE POWER FOR ZERO DOLLARS, ALEX!!!" :rolleyes:

    Laser Island Voyages Back In The Day

    Steel building outfit is starting to backpedal on some of their promises, I'm thinking of drop-kicking the pogues like I'm STARRIN' in the NFL and simply buying a fixer I looked at before, the banksters who own the fixer would probably take $45K for it. It has 1600+ square feet, all utilities in...

    Aaaaaarrrrgghh!!! My brain is FRIED from wading through building plans, gubmint regulations & building codes, etc., etc., time to head back to the glampsite and PAR-TAY, LOL.

    Ordered my steel building today, my new home/mini pool hall will be 30' x 50' x10', pitched roof will add clearance in the center. Kittehs & I will have roughly 1500 square feet inside, wraparound deck will add living & recreational area. Things are finally starting to move with regard to the...

    "Did you learn anything new today?"

    Been sailing Lasers since the mid-'70s, personally I think there's no finer craft for all-around use... of course, others will differ in opinion, but that's okay, I have a veritable truckload of good memories associated with Laser sailing, and nothing or nobody can ever take those memories away...

Gotta run, I'm on the fly getting things done, and...

    Minifish Questions

    Nothing wrong with a Minifish, easiest boat in the world to cartop... though I'm a diehard Laser man, I'll always fondly remember my Minifish for the way she sailed the length of the Salton Sea, easily tackling the task under breezy conditions with heller chop. A grand adventure, and I even had...

    Posted more pics at the other site, heaps of nautical history here, LOL. Signed an offer on the property I like, but the owner/seller is in the boondocks in Alaska, so there's a slight lag or delay in communications. As a cash buyer, I expect to close within three weeks, then erect a steel...

    Holy Cow!!! I'm having the time of my life glamping in the forest, should be signing on that property tomorrow or Wednesday, just wanna ask the building inspector a few more questions before I commit.
