Whoops and a Lil Practice

April 28th, 2008 · 7 Comments

Hey there everyone. First off let me apologize for deleting like 20 of your guys’ last comments, it was a mistake that can’t be undone, so keep em coming and I’ll try not to do that one again. Second, be sure to check the December 1969 Archive as all our Sat phone posts get put […]

Squeaky Clean

April 27th, 2008 · 3 Comments

The day started early for me today. Since our free rum party/WresleMania adventures Friday night I’ve been on the DL nursing a bruised liver. So after a solid 10 hour sleep 2 nights in a row, I was recharged and fired up. All morning I watched the armada of multi-million dollar machines parade through the […]

Leaving Soon for Somewhere

April 26th, 2008 · No Comments

Race week in Antigua is stating to ramp up into full swing. Giant race boats abound, maxis, TP-52s, crazy French trimarans and cats, and boats that just look like fast cruising/racing sailing machines. Giant hulks of men walk up and down the docks, no doubt grinders for the big boats and everywhere you look crews […]

Blitzkrieg Antigua

April 25th, 2008 · 3 Comments

Blitzkrieg Antigua. Where am I? Why is my mouth all dry and a funny tummy nags me from below, must be symptoms of the Natty M’s first night in Antigua. Vague memories of extreme dance-floor offensives, the boys were on fire. Good lord I’m a happy man on this boat. Natural Mistake breezed in and […]

Pee-Skidzy Geyser

April 24th, 2008 · No Comments

Our furball companion has been real vocal since we arrived in Antigua. Since we are moored in Falmouth Harbor, he doesn’t have the luxury of getting off the boat whenever he fancies like in St. Maarten. Well, he’s been letting us know just how much that bothers him whenever we take off. So we thought […]

We awoke to our last Sunday lazily at bright and warn Caribbean 8 o’clock in “da mornin.” Speeding off in the Red Rocket after a couple French Presses of delicious Coffee, as Natty M said fast on her anchor in Simpson Bai, St. Maarten. Ben going to Shrimpy’s to hawk some of our excess parts […]

We’re still finding time to skate. Once arriving in Montsarrat we soon found this little gem we called Tetanus Skatepark. A wrecked barge of gnarled, twisted, rusted steel that moves a little with the swell. I’m pretty sure we were the first ones to sk8 there and it was pretty rough. It was quite a […]

Fluid Dreams

April 20th, 2008 · No Comments

With a bit of full moon fever last night, we took to the water to enjoy some artificial surf made possible by the red rocket. Now that we’ve said our goodbyes and we’re ready to sail onward, I can unwind. Leaving St. Maarten is hard after all the great times I’ve had here. I can’t […]

Leaving St. Maarten for ??????

April 19th, 2008 · No Comments

I just cleared customs, checked out and officially removed Mystic (thanks for all your help and enthusiasm) from our crew list and added the our new boat crew “Brent” Dizzy Madden to the boat roster. The new Commonwealth boys are a breath of fresh air and super hard workers. Dizzy is on the green side […]

Locked, Hooked and Ready to Rock

April 19th, 2008 · No Comments

After finishing up some final touches on the Natural Mystic, we needed to get into clean water to make sure our water maker is running properly. After a month of being med-moored on the mellow, wind-blocked part of Port De Plaissance, we are finally free from the clutches of dockage. Yesterday the four of us […]
