When I was a yute in Silicon Valley, our family had a Danish Folkboat: http://www.sfbayfolkboats.org/history/ An absolutely gorgeous yacht. My dad "Captain Bligh" Nichols had us kids working on the thing every weekend, but it didn't hurt us none. At any rate....this was long before I had a ham license, and I was just thinking what a blast it would have been. Anyhoo....if any of you are sailors (meaning a pilot of an actual SAILboat), please do some hamming for me. I'm 400 miles from the nearest body of water, and unless I want to sail my Viking ship up the Yukon River, I'm sorta landlocked. So, tell me your hamming/sailing adventures so I can live them vicariously. That is all.
