Paul Smith driving Sjogin.
Category Archive for 'Uncategorized'
Hove to off Swan Point. Had two fine if slow sails today, the second with Julia. Seemed to remember how to sail and had to tack around Swan Point in a light easterly with motor boat bobble all over. Your very, very happy Skipper. Thanks to all who have shared this adventure over the years. […]
Apparently there’s enough interest out there that Paul Gartside has designed a 16 foot version of Sjogin. Here’s a link to the recent article in WaterCraft Magazine. Truly amazing. From a neglected boat on the back row at Beaton’s to a seemingly global small boat star. Let a thousand Sjogin’s bloom.
No stopping me now. I added to new WordPress app to my phone (where all the pics are). Here’s a test Post. One of the recent Beaton skiffs home for a touch up. Mary Ann ready for her 91st season. Will the Bat be back? Stay tuned. Ready to rig. The BBYRA season starts next Saturday. […]
this is a test to see if I can post pics directly from my iPad. If it works you just may see more frequent posts. I’m also trying Google Photo to serve the pics. Here’s a recent pic of Sjogin in her slip. I think Tuesday will be rigging day. I think it works! […]
Signs of Spring are out there but you have to look under the snow. Sjogin’s still resting comfortably in her ice berth. There’s signs of open water but the Bay’s still frozen solid south of Curtis Point. Spar work begins next week with the assembling of the various bits and cleaning up the mast and […]
and I’m feeling guilty about the lack of of a new post. Here’s a few quick pics of Sjogin in the shed being very slowly prepared for painting. I’m starting from the house down because if the hull get’s done first there’s always the temptation to finish the deck and house painting “when it’s in […]
I’ve started using an application called Flicstaker to upload photos to Flickr. It’s pretty easy to use which should result in more pics here. … The dinghy is a Columbia Model designed by Nathaniel G. Herreshoff. I had the pleasure of helping Tom build her in the early 80’s. The ugly duckling is Speedwell, ready […]
Last Monday I had the pleasure of having Kent Mountford on board while he was interviewed by Kirk Moore of the Asbury Park Press about the state of Barnegat Bay. Delightful day, sad story. Videographer Tom Costello recorded it all. We had a nice light breeze from the West that made for a pleasant sail […]
Had a chance today for a quick sail and brunch under way. Also discovered the Charlie Nobel is finished. Good excuse to order a new one from the stove’s builder. Copper perhaps. … Out before the Southerly picks up. … Still rough but very functional. … Hove to inside Swan Point. Another iPad Post.
