Don't know if you remember me, but we met at Nationals in Galveston. Looks like you will have another Tiger sailor. I am working in Longview now and in Hobie only sailing area (Fleet 23). Boatless now as Mystere 4.3 spin learning boat is sold. So when season starts again in April/May I will be looking for a used Tiger. Back on the circuit again. (LOL). Will get my butt kicked as I train new crew and learn boat, but isn't that what it is all about, bringing in new sailors and passing it on to youth. Ashleigh is getting pretty good at 14, (7 yr of training). She is skippering now.

Doug, First it was a blade, then a F17 now a tiger.

Maybe you should just get a boat and not post about it until you get it. Seems like you are jinxing yourself.

Good luck with whatever boat you get, if you ever get one.

Robi:

Still plan om transferring to Tampa area down the road. Company has office there, but I have to learn new techniques and get my ASNT certifications before I can do that, but will see you at GYC someday. Got to sail what you can race!! Tiger would be my 5th cat, boatless at present. Mystere 4.3 was sold in La before I headed north. My career is real lot of traveling and adjusting as you move up. I can basically work anywhere in the world in it. I WANT a Blade or F17, BUT if you have to go 400-600 miles or more round trip just to race on weekends not worth it now. Have to get what the rest in area has, as said many times in the forums. AND as you all know we change boats and have multiple boats all the time right? LOL LOL

Yes Doug I remember you well.

Actually I have, kind of, put my boat up for sale. It is used and I thought it would be nice to get a newer one. It has been and is a good boat. Just looking for something different now.

I suspect I will not afford the next generation of Hobie even if it does get to the US anytime soon, which I feel is doubtful.

Looking at Infusion, maybe Capricorn, do not know now.

If I do not sell the boat that is okay too. I will just sail it a bit longer before having to decide. I only told the guys in the PNW about is so far as I would like to get our area even larger.

It will go in Classifieds maybe by the end of this week. Hard to part with a boat when I have not decided where I will go from here...got to sail!

Later,
Dan

REALLY want a Blade or a F17, but that will have wait till I get to Tampa and GYC as It is Hobie only here. This is the new race ready me. Lost 30 lbs and 7 inches off waist since I saw you.

Why do I get "You do not have access to download this attachment", when I try to see Doug's photo, even though there have been 62 downloads ?

Actually, I just didn't look at the dates. Still the question remains, why would one man want to look at pictures of another man so bad that he would ask for directions? I think its a valid question.
