First off - Here's a real happy shout out to all the others who posted pictures from Wooden Boats on Parade this year! My deepest and heartfelt thanks to you one and all!! I really liked a different take on things and you covered stuff I would have missed. thank you!!

Second - Thanks for all the appreciative comments, both for me and for the other shooters as well.

Third - So then, now the question becomes (while I work away at other photos an' things which includes a couple of focus sets like the Coral Reef set), do you want more postings similar to the what I did with Coral Reef where I focus on a particular boat or builder?? Do you want them stretched out over time as well - e.g. I have many photos of the Coral Reef the go back a number of years, should I have included some of them in the posting/article or should I stick to shots from one event as I did above?

What does the readership say??

ps - Come on up and say Hi if you get a chance to get out to The Lake.

My small vote:
I would say that if it appears more than a few viewers are focused on a particular subject and you have additional pics ( and time/energy ) that additional coverage would be appreciated.

The method of delivery is not important, I appreciate all pictures and video. It's all good.

Seriously, I have heard rumors that they don't even take Marine 1 out anymore since SFPD cannot afford to pay for her fuel consumption.

Still, good lookin' boat all-in-all even if they can only afford to trot her out once or twice a year!

They still take the SFPD Marine 1 out; just not as frequently as the Coast Guard does...

I dont think it was out during this year's fleet week though... Well I didn't see it...

Someone took a video of it running last month.

The Club got an article in the local paper last Sunday. thought I'd share; click here or on the picture to read the article on the Chronicle's website.



Kinda missed the other 5/8ths of the story.... Still glad you dropped by Mr Nolte. Thanks for the kind words.

off-season (informal) SBOD racing

Several SB skippers (Wheelers, whatever) plan to sail informally this off-season. This is an unofficial (beer-can), no fee, registration food or prizes event. Everyone is welcome. The plan is to have "beer-can"-informal-racing once a month October-February. Some of us need more work on RRS & boat rigging than others as we look forward to September, 2013!!!. So, splash your boat-if you can brave the weather-and join us.

SFMYC, SPRECKELS LAKE, GG PARK, SAN FRANCISCO

SBOD OFF-SEASON SAILING SCHEDULE
SAT. OCT 27 1-3 (1 o'clock start)(6 race minimum-more depending on participation) 4 SBs to date.
SAT. NOV 10 1-3 (overlaps the swap-meet)
SAT. DEC 8 1-3 (membership meeting/Christmas party/beer-can race)
SAT JAN 12 1-3
SAT FEB 9 1-3
MARCH: (SFMYC SANCTIONED SBOD REGATTAS BEGIN)

30's at Spreckels

This pic may have been posted in here before but I am gonna put it up anyway.

Found while searching old model boat companies, this is Spreckels in the 30's, no exact date unfortunalely.
