so salty pieces of coral from surfing Hawaii in the 60's and 70's getting reef pounded living in my body fall through my skin from time to time!

sailing to Oahu

Jimi Hendrix was playing on Oahu. I had never sailed. Surfed Mexico, California, Hawaii! Aw, how hard could it be to sail 90-110 miles from Kauai to Oahu? Piece of cake, right? Remember it was the 60's! This is so bad. We thought we were looking at Kaiena Point,Ohau, knowing we weren't going to make the concert! But at least we were in site of Oahu-wrong! Coy, who had never sailed before, me,who had never sailed before, jeff and Abbott etc. We were looking at the sleeping giant on Kauai! We had done three-sixty's in the night! We sailed on the only tri-marran I've ever sailed on ( except later ) in my life, missed the concert! It was at the Waikiki Shell Ampitheater ( Moon eclipsed . We finally made Nawilwili Harbor! The Skipper tried to give us his boat saying, " It's trying to kill me"! We watched him go stark raving mad not even realising that had we got caught in the channel current we were on our way to Japan! Remember it was the 60's and we were going to see Hendrix. I left out some of the good stuff but I will make up for it later!

When Titles Are The Story

        What is written here, today, is nothing more (or less) than a series of titles from my favorite sailing mag, Latitude "38".  A conjunction, expletive and/or just maybe a dangling participle might enter-fear with a jarund clause!  A participial phrase, OH!  Forsooth!    Let this begin............in the beginning!                          Which boat has circumnavigated the most?  That'd be up the butt, Bob!  Baja California is Heaven, not Hell protecting the union with cheese!  Nothing beats Full moon chute-flying!                                                                           Here's one for the blooper reel!   Great Ha-Ha, but what about the puddle jump?            Hat's off to the Coast Guard, the coast guard saved my life!!  May a thousand seagulls crap on your deck!   Real World-outboard suggestion needed.                                                                                                                         Point Conception-was a breeze.  it's the right thing to do, it protects you.                                                     Time for a sundowner/moonriser!  Expeditite this:  A collision of whales point of view.  Lots of whales on the Mozambique Channel.                                                                                                    The highlight of my day-then and now.  Another sturgeon believer trying to make sense out of nonsense!  We'll accept the lien  while we appeal!                                                                                                        What about sailing a laser alone?  Show the right night lights.  You have to follow the " rules of the road "!    The 100'000 misunderstandings best dinghy manhandling practices the ultimate Ha-Ha rescue boat!! etc..................What?
