This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
Last Saturday some friends helped me sail the Bucentaure across the bay to Annapolis to get ready for the Sail Boat Show. The weather was beautiful - 70's, sunny but there was one hitch - zero wind. So when I use the term "sail", I really mean we motored across and occasionally caught a brief gust of wind. It makes for a less than exciting passage as the boat's "massive" 14 hp diesel engine can get up to 5 knots. At least its fuel efficient - we only used 2 gallons of fuel. But it was a lonnnnggggg 5 and a half hour passage.
Coming up on the Thomas Point lighthouse - it's one of the last screw-pile light houses still on the water. This light house marks an approach into Annapolis harbor.
Tied up at a temporary spot. With the sailboat show coming, dockage is at a premium and you tie up where you can find a spot. In return for letting the guys at North Point use my boat, I'll get a compete cleaning and they'll help me pick out a good electronics package. At 28', she'll not be the largest boat at the show but I think she'll do OK.
