Tom's Photo Album

Parted spinnaker halyard.

Ferrying to Red Dress from the sea wall at Radio Bay.

Bill's up the mast, replacing the spinnaker halyard while Tom's below getting a hernia cranking him up with the winch.

Autopilot bracket pieces ready for epoxy, cut out according to the sketch on the napkin drawn up that morning during breakfast at Ken's House of Pancakes.

How exactly does this thing work?

Veteran cruising neighbors at Radio Bay. Craig in the trimaran has been cruising the world's oceans for last 30 years. The family next to him, mom, dad and their two teenage daughters were just completing their 2-1/2 year circumnavigation including passage through the pirate-infested Gulf of Aden and the treacherous Straits of Magellan.

Celebrating arrival at latitude 38 North and the final turn for home.

We're here to help...toss us a line.

Bill steering across the Potato Patch Shoal, 24' deep and six miles outside the Golden Gate.

Home at last.
