As Thanksgiving is approaching, many thoughts are turning toward the sales that are available the next day. I detest crowds of coupon gripping shoppers so I decline to get involved in such silliness. I am however planning a Thanksgiving Day Sail, which is the only kind of sail that makes sense to me!!  Conditions look good and it may well be the last sail of the year. Then into the decommissioning ceremony the following day. But not to worry, good fall and winter rowing is here!
Cheers, all. And be Thankful!

As all y'all know, Koinonia's Master does like to paddle his way around the bay Barnegat.  Well, did anyone here also know that this pompous propitious paddler also peddles paddles?  Here's a pic of  Bro Bob at his weekend job at Appomattox River Co. peddling paddles. (paddleva.com).

Hey there out in Compac land!!
  Did you ever hear that still small voice inside telling you to check the circle clip holding the clevis pin for the forestay on your 23? Well, yesterday I did! After work I headed to the marina to check on my baby and heard this little voice telling me to look at all the standing rigging. I discovered that the circle clip had been reduced to a thin wire and the clevis pin was well on it's way to backing completely out! In laymens terms, this is a bad scene!
  It's been said that God looks out for children and fools. And the sailboats owned by fools, I might add!!
Sail on my friends!!!

Bob,

Discovered the same issue once when the spring clip had turned to a rusty powder after only a couple of months. I feel much more comfortable using a bolt and fiber nut.
