Tx cat race

Texas Beach Cat Race from Galveston to South Padre

It would have been quite an experience to take our old Getaway and made this race, but feel we would have had our butts kicked. I think these guys are pretty serious.

Rich sailors

Rich Sailors

Great point made about people out there sailing on a shoestring budget. I like the idea about the main character of this story, a professor, biching about lowlifes getting in his way. Kismet will dictate his fate when he is out on the water and he runs into trouble and some lowlife has to save his sorry behind.

Bob Bichin's New Magazine

Cruising Outpost

Looks like Bob was shafted by the owners he sold his magazine Lats and Ats to and has to start all over again. How do people sleep when they screw people out of their life and dreams?

I know the feeling Bob.
