Hot Tub Party

This past weekend was the Yacht Club's 2nd Annual Labor Day sail to St. Michaels.  Many of the Club's boats came and we all had a great time at the Miles River Yacht Club.  Skip and Judith came with their boat, a 76' motor yacht.  They are great people and hosted a hot tub party on the bow of their boat.

The hot tub is quite large, and can hold about 8 people.  It takes a lot of water to fill it.  During the party, someone knocked the plug out.  Amazingly, Skip had enough water on board to refill it.

We also ran into Mike and Rebecca (www.zerotocruising.com) while in town.  They have a PDQ32 and have kept a really great Blog of their experiences while going from being new boat owners to full time cruisers.  It was nice to meet them.  Hopefully we will get to sail with them sometime.  

Big Pink Eyes on a Teal Sail

In August of 2008 when we purchased our PDQ 36, we knew it had a few names and a few owners, but did not know much about it.  It came with a Spinnaker and the boat's colors were very festive and Caribbean which Bonnie really liked.  One day when sailing up the Bay we decided to open the Asymmetrical spinnaker and see how well it worked.  When I pulled up the sock, I was very surprised  at what I saw.  

Bonnie loved it.  Its got some of her favorite colors.

Now, two years later it's still lots of fun to use and I get a kick out of seeing the looks on the faces of passing boaters.

I'd love to know what it looks like from a distance.  Certainly we'd be easy to pick out on the Bay.
