I was in the Air Force, but I liked to sail too. I miss "Kim II" -- a 38 foot wooden sloop I had in Hawaii in the mid 90's. Here she is docked at Hickam Harbor. My arm is on the mast, the other dude is a friend. Me and my partner took it around Oahu once--counter clockwise. It took about 38 hours. I also miss Katarina (a production 27 foot Catalina.) Had her in the mid 2000's in Florida. Here she is sails all the way out on the Indian River. (Almost down wind enough to go "wing on wing",) It took a bit, but I finally got my XYL at the helm beating into the wind on the Indian River. She LOVED it once she got past the initial "scared to do it." We went off shore regularly. Here we are about 8 miles out into the Atlantic. I miss sailing.
