    In order: STORMVOGEL (famous ketch from South Africa with distinctive transom); KIALOA II (sloop, owner John Kilroy was the uncle of one of my best friends); SERENA (schooner, owner Ken DeMeuse of Alameda after this race commissioned Bill Tripp to design the ketch BLACKFIN, sister-ship to ONDINE.

    Speaking of the MMBA Master Mariners Race, I will always think of it as the “Mustard Mayonnaise Race.” I owned a wooden boat and participated for a few years. There was always a wonderful flurry of activity in May as wooden boats around SF Bay were being prepped, painted and varnished. There was one friend who’s mate was from Japan, and after several weeks of hearing all this talk of the Master Mariners Race, she finely asked, “What’s this Musta’ Mayonnaise Race all about?”

    I was crew in the Mustard Mayonnaise race yesterday when we crossed the bow of this beast. It was built in 2015 and I think it's the first time in SF Bay. One guy says it's a floating dry dock. I almost believed him it was that weird looking. Close too...

    That's Japanese owned HYPERION HIGHWAY car carrier. Carries more than 7,000 cars and was inbound to Richmond from Mexico. And you thought 880 traffic was bad before that thing unloads?

    Wow!

    If you make stupid decisions on the water you could get run over by one ship or 7,000 vehicles. There is a choice as to which sounds more impressive if you survive.

    I am refreshing and adding to my sailing reading by reading sled's posts from number one. Somewhere in there was a post about the ferry out of Pt Townsend that took out one of the participants in the parade at the Wooden Boat Festival.

    Memorial Day weekend has more rain on the house and snow in the higher elevations. Typically, this weather would have ended two months ago.

    Sailing TransAtlantic is not a trivial ocean passage. But transporting a yacht by ship is not always fail safe either, especially when the yacht in question is a superyacht bound from the Caribbean to the Med.

    Apparently the seaworthiness of the 130', all carbon fiber, Baltic built, MY SONG was in question and the owner said, "let's eliminate worry and send it on a ship to Italy.

    What happened was on the last leg of the ship's passage, in the Med, MY SONG fell off the ship... Insured for $70 million, there is sure to be some discussion.

    Main halyard needs trimming.

    Oh - nevermind.


    And thanks, Philpott, for righting my sideways photo. I posted it from my phone while in Maine and it appeared to be upright. I puzzled over the "west instead of south" comment all week!

Look carefully at Bob's painting. Can you name the 3 other maxis tied up on TICONDEROGA's port side? One is a ketch, one a sloop, and one a schooner.

    here's my best guess...
    Ketch (immediately to port) - Storm Vogel
    Sloop - Kialoa 2 - the cabin is unmistakeable
    Schooner - Serena

    Good, David! You got them all correct, two days after Tom P (CLOUD) also answered correctly. Congrats to you both.... Good to see you yesterday at CBC. I enjoyed our visit.

    If anyone is singlehanded and hungry, the chicken dinner from post 3213 is still available. The correct answer is not Goodyear tires.
