Went surfing on Lake Huron with friends. A beautiful day but a tad on the cool side (air 19F, water 34F). Great rides and a great time. I continue to be amazed at present day wetsuit technology. The only time you were cold was taking it off


I can probably help find you a good shrink... <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" />

Jake, MauganN20...
I'll admit there is something fundamentally wrong with jumping into water when the windchill is near 10F and the water just above freezing <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> But as with any sport it all has to do with having the right gear for the conditions. My surfing wetsuit is rated for frigid conditons and it works extremely well. I'm actually warmer than people on the beach with parkas. We surfed for 3 hours. The only reason for stopping...my arms got tired from paddling. If you can get past the mental blocks and keep an open mind, you'd be surprised at what you can do <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

Unfortunately, and I wish to God this wasn't the case, but diabetes has severely crippled my circulation in my extremities. Even in a dry suit with fleece socks and wetsuit boots over my feet, they get cold even in Florida in May.

I'd be, well, a popsicle. Litterally <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Hi Tim

The glacier have been melting down during the last decade.
Some of them have completly disapeared. The are mountainlodges that are only accessible through long ladders (85m). 30 Years ago you could just walk across the glacier.

But it's going to snow tomorrow. Hopefully so mutch that, there is enough snow to ski on.

Have fun and hoper to see you again!

Tim,

Here's an updated plant hardiness map for the US...quite a change (Ohio...the Florida of the 21st century).

Went to the german boatshow on saturday to get some windsurf gear and took some pics at the Hobie stand.
The new Hobie 14 Turbo looked nice, there was also a prototype of something that looked like a Hobie 14/16 crossover.

I guess so, next time i'm over at my dealer i'll ask him about the H14 sales numbers.
Anyway, I uploaded all the pics into an album: BOOT 2007 Gallery
They also had a Tiger, but not with the new sails (as the one at the Paris boatshow).
What else did I do? Did some windsurfing on sunday and today stripped the carpets out of my new appartment (boring!).

Yep - they've put in some change proposals to the IHCA recently to make the bridle and shroud attachment points more like the 16.

I wouldn't say they make a lot of them, but they still make them.

Thank goodness! I was really distressed when I was told that Hobie Cat U.S. had destroyed the molds for the Hobie 14. Why would you destroy molds? How much space could they take up?

Boat styles are like spike heels and bell bottoms. What is out today comes back IN 20 years down the road.
