    image.jpg Here is what happens when some wind catches a slight flaw in your Fureled Head Sail. Wind was around 60 when I took the pick Thank God for full coverage insurance.

    It's blowin' up here now, too, gonna get much worse later. I doubled my dock lines, added a forward spring, tied down the dinghy on the foredeck with twice as many lines, pulled up the boarding step and stowed the foot pad that was on the dock. Fingers crossed. It's going to be a long night for some.

    Well the wind down here in Oregon just stepped up. We have heavy rain now blowing through at about 45 degrees. The house gutters are going to get full quickly at this pace.

    The folks on Vancouver Island are fortunate that the low zigged instead of zagged. But I see a t-shirt in the making.

    I think you will need to take the image down to to print shop and have it done. Or maybe that TV infomercial is still selling do it yourself kits.
    It is funny. Gives me a smile.
