    Thanks Ray. No I don't know the hull# and have only spoken with the captain in passing. I'll make a point to check next time I get a chance. It is interesting to see how small an Ariel appears next to a stretched out Triton...

    Mike,

    Is there a picture that shows the Triton next to an Ariel? Sure would love to see that.

    Ebb, by growing up in the Deep South I have always had a keen eye for women and for horses and a comparison of those two is a match race. It just depends upon where you are and how frisky they are when you do see them but know this and it's a guarantee: both are show ponies and they'll break your heart if you let them. I still like seeing comparative pictures though, lol.

    ...from post #299. Not exactly side-by-side. A little deceptive because I'm farther out in the mooring field, and perhaps the darker hull makes Sea Glass appear a bit smaller? Although, I'm waiting for Pete to post the pics everyone would really like to see.

    Well, haulout is next week. I've been spending my Fall sailing time clearing a spot beside the garage to store the boat. This gives me the option to store her indefinitely for *FREE* until I am able to get to the upcoming project$. (No more plans to sell her - looks like you guys are stuck with me.)

    The season began with a webcam shot, so it somehow seems fitting to end the season with one.

    Mike -

    I am glad to know you will still be around, and with Sea Glass.

    I never voiced that opinion before, since it was contrary to your own (thankfully short, and quite possibly, faulty) thinking , but think it safe to do so now that you have come to your senses.

    Thanks for the sentiments fellas. I had thought I was ahead on things and had a few more years before anything else BIG came due. Oh well, onward through the fog...

    Great news Mike. Your boat is too nice to give up.

    Alberg designs and Maine sailing waters, is there a better union? Very good to hear you'll be maintaining stewardship of Sea Glass.

    That looks a lot like Wisconsin. I spent 3 weeks there this winter and shoveled the white stuff almost every day I was there.
