as i said......i will let pix come over when i finally get them uploaded into m y pix site---later today i think....we had a bunch of lightning storms...being only lightning rod in a lightning storm is a beeeyotch lol......beats ya to death -- dang near literally...the winds inside a thunderboomer are very much higher than the ambient and predicted winds----up to 50+ kts!!!! adventure is fun, isnt it???!!!!!...gotta live thru it first lol.....so--our finish of the initial adventure of meeting our friends we have made on line will have to take a back burner for a minute as we repair the things found during these adventures to require addressing for future sailing fun......which will happen with this team......the sailing was awesome and the adventures were on the edge--perfect !!!!!
