Thanks for the pictures and the video. It's cool to see the boats lit up in the Christmas spirit. It sounds like you had a good time despite the rain.

I'd have to say that what I liked most about it was the purely whimsical nature of it. There was nothing to be won or lost, except for the pure pleasure that comes from celebrating with friends.

I set out to shoot video, but I first decided to shoot some long still exposures, just to see what effect we would see. I knew that Craig and others would get clear shots by using a flash, so I went for pure fantasy. Here they are, just for fun!

Glad you're enjoying them. Found another that I like. With a bit of imagination, you can see what the origin of some UFO photos could be...

Mom pounced and grabbed her by the scruff a second or two later...

Turns out their Grandfather on their Dad's side, a skilled professional woodworker, was a SFMYC member during the late 30s and throughout the 40's or so and had build a number of large freesail boats.

Guess then sawdust n' salt got into the blood.

TechShop SoMa, (San Franciso) has opened its doors...

For the "workshop challenged" or "tool challenged" amongst us here in San Francisco and the North Bay...

TechShop® San Francisco has just opened and is beginning it's rollout. They are at 926 Howard Street (Howard between 5th and 6th).

Check out the equipment list, nearly all the "toys" you could ever want.

For the South Bay folks, the Menlo Park TechShop® has been open for over four years and another is planned for San Jose soon.

There is going to be an open house at the Howard St. location on Friday, January 14, with a lecture by Kevin Kelly, former editor and publisher of Whole Earth Review and later editor of Wired magazine which he helped found.

I was looking at Craigslist tonight, and someone in the Richmond / Seacliff area is selling 3 R/C boats (1 tug, and 2 gas hydro's). I am not the seller, and I don't know the seller. I just thought that someone who follows this thread might be interested, and is probably local.

The tug can be found here......
http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/boa/2162899837.html

50 inch 25cc Hydro
http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/boa/2162893328.html

35cc Hydro
http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/boa/2162890578.html

Hope this helps someone.
Ken
