The origin of Messing About In Sailboats

  • The original quote is from Kenneth Grahame's Wind In the Willows: "There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."

Yesterday was indeed a fine day to sail. Unfortunately, time commitments due to a picnic later in the day, prevented us from making it out of Jamaica Bay. Our three best sails over the past two years have been or most recent tree over the past three weeks. We have been enjoying some great weekend wind and weather, haven't we?


Wonderful. I am beginning to understand the attractions of a boat bigger than a Laser.

John: So far it has the makings of a great summer.

TMan: I am a fraud. These are all photoshopped. I spent the weekend on the mooring fixing the engine

Though your trip had to end that fast, all in all, it's still AMAZING! Adventurous individuals of all ages engage in boating activities, and having the weather on your side is a must. Also, we need to make sure that every part of the boat is in good condition because it plays a vital role in helping you enjoy the whole boating experience. We are looking forward to your next get-away. Cheers!
