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.

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. The Bush admin paid for localities and state govt.s buying lot of toys from their favorite defense contractors but didn't allocate any follow up usage funding. 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.

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)
