Yes, but my insurance requires three souls on board, so I don't go out solo. It's a blue water cruiser, so the rigging is heavier than a day sailer, but mostly they don't want you to crash into the dock when mooring. My daughter and her man love it, we usually motor over to the city and use a transient dock on the Embarcadero to go out to eat. It's faster than the Bay Bridge.

Sounds cool. My kids will love when we get to visit.

My dad loves sailing, he was like Michael Douglas in Romancing the Stone. He has a catamaran like 20' or something we took sailing sometimes as a kid.

Merry Christmas, everyone!
I found this forum when I started dating a divorced dad. I've learned a lot here; in fact, right now, my guy is at his place spending Christmas with his kids. I'm planning on hanging out and cooking with some friends this afternoon. I learned here that giving him space to learn how to be with his kids on his own after a long marriage has made everything easier. They're all young adults and I enjoy their company, but I keep out of "family" stuff.
Hope you all are having a wonderful day with the people you love.

Well only 1 out of 3 kids showed up this morning. Better than nothing. He's enjoying his toys and the house is a mess with boxes everywhere.

Time to go to grandma's to eat!

Thanks all. It's rewarding to see the number of good women checking in.

With that, Ladies and Gentleman, I wonder if you could take a moment and consider the lives we touch. Over the years, we have known that there is a sincere risk involved with the lives we touch through this forum. Occasionally, it hits too close to home, such as moderator Jehr, whom we send our love.

This year it struck again, with the member claptrap suffering the worst of evils.

A moment dedicated to claptrap, and a moment of your time to consider the lives we touch.
