I think you have to make the subject directories public for others to view.

Photobucket works pretty good. I'll e'mail a link with pics of the grandson and my son's wedding for chuckles. Retirement looms this summer though I have a lot of work to do to get ready.

So, are you planning to stop and play with stripers on your way to France?

We will be out to have a drink with you, Donna and juro. Maybe at our house on the Cape.

Retirement is cool never let anyone kid you it is not.

Hey Juro and Fred,

We were going to come to the cape to the cottage but Tracy's brother rented it out, Idiot! We will be in Boston area last week of June but not sure we will get to the cape now. Leaving Boston July first for Brittany, we have rented an old 17th century farm house for 3 weeks till we can move on the boat and start sea trials.

Sorry I can't go fishing with you guys on the cape or at least I don't think I can. But over in Treguier the town the boat is being built they have some type of bass screaming around on the tide chasing bait. They are all silver and look to go about 10 pounds or so. I'll give them a try, I need to find out what they are.
Keep in touch and I'll send our blog once we get it going.
Here is the boat builder web page. click on gallery at top to see the boat, www.voiliers-boreal.com Youtube has some vids also by typing in Boreal 44. There is one of the boats being built that is OK.

Later

Steve and Tracy

OC, you guys are always welcome to stay at our place. I'll be on vacation the last week in June, then vacating the cape the week of the fourth for a rental in Maine with extended family.

I was down last week. My area had a lot of nice fish once things settled down after the cold front passed through. Cataracs and some age related macular degeneration seem to be affecting my seeing fish or it could be I'm just not calibrated yet. Structure west of the creek is flat, any troughs ar subued and a lot of gravel bars are covered with sand:(.

Hi Guys,

Sorry for my non ability to post pictures of the boat now that we are in France.

Everything is going well and we will start sea trials later this week. I will give you this code to view on youtube RC Louise when she was launched the other day. We are in Brittany, France in a town called Treguier. In the vid you will see she really is the perfect flats boat for fishing anyway until the mast went on. Now she is the perfect flats boat to anchor in the Bahamas as she only draws 1 meter when the centerboard is up. Go to youtube and type in 00001Lancement RC LOUISE you should come up with the video. Maybe someone else knows how to post the right thing to get it up automatically.

By the way they got some great sport fishing over here, some type of Bass that cruises the rocks, tidal rivers and beaches. I'm sure they can be caught on a fly.

Cheers
Steve and Tracy

In Antigua, leaving tomorrow for Panama and through the canal then on to S. Pacific. Boat sailing really well, 18 days from Canaries to Martinique. First 6 days 30 to 40 KTS and big seas from two directions boat was almost perfect in those conditions. Last 12 days in 20 to 25 KTS and down wind wing on wing easy too easy I got board. Fish just OK. Did see a 5 foot tarpon at the internet cafe in Falmouth Antigua. It swam under the dock and cafe never did see it again.

Hope all of you are well and getting ready for a good stripa year.

Google RC LOUISE unvarnished for blog, we don't add much to it but you never know.

Cheers

Steve and Tracy

Been following your travels. Seemed you were lingering in the carrib and was curious as to your plans.

All's well here. Got a couple of keepers at the end of '13 and beginning of '14, Emily and Hazel. Been working on the cape house doing all the stuff I was supposed to do before retiring. Looking forward to the striped ones and the opportunity to really get dialed in, with all my "free time".

You need to get Tracy to give you the keys to the blog occasionally for a little tech talk on the boat.

Great to hear from you and good luck on the crossing to paradise.
