The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

In looking back over the past year I definitely had some of each. The Good was in May seeing Try-Foil rise for the first time. The boat and foils that I made actually worked. I had spent only about $6000 and produced a working foiler. The Bad had to be in July with the overall Weymouth experience. Even though I met lots of good folks the combination of the weather, the cost, the weather, my lack of preparation, and the weather all conspired to yield a Bad experience. And the Ugly had to be the last sail of the season in October at West River when I trashed the main foil.

So as I look forward to this year I'm sure there'll be some good, bad and ugly moments to come. Let's hope there's more of the first!

Weigh-in on the weight poll if you desire. Remember, this is not your sailing weight (which might be 5 kgs heavier) but your buck nekkid on-the-scales weight.

Enjoy some classic Clint, 42 years before "Gran Torino."

Theme by Ennio Morricone (1966).

OK I'm the big one, I've been swimming, no weight gone but it does move around. Before I jump on the next foiler offered, will they take me crashing? Yes I'm trying to get in enough shape to survive a ride. Like you site. you and your fellow Mothist have the Fever Bad.
