Thanks Tim.  Credit to Jody Henry down in Houston.  I just sent some pictures and a write-up her way.   

We're going to try and put this out every other month unless we have a lot going on.  Next issue - end of Feb. 

See you in Arizona!

Yes, sorry Steve.   Maybe that will make the March issue.

We appreciate being mentioned in the newsletter and look forward to meeting the rest of the Texas fleet soon.  Our boat (#134) is being towed to Houston this week from CT and my sons and I hope to be on the water next week.  As mentioned in the newsletter, we have been big boat PHRF racers so this will be a new kind of sailing for us.  Please be gentle :).

Viper #134 is safely at its new home in Seabrook, Tx.  We can't wait to get on the water, but today it is 43 degrees, raining and blowing 30+ so I guess we will wait a bit.

If anyone needs to have their boat moved, I highly recommend Ben Jameson  603 303 0384   craneman_4@yahoo.com.  He is very cost effective and takes care of your boat like it was his own.  Picked up my boat last Thursday in CT and delivered it this morning (over 1700 miles).  Touches base every day to let you know where he is etc. 

He has a son in the Air Force in San Antonio and new grand kids so he likes coming down here.

congrats on the boat!! Look forward to meeting you.  Are you guys signed up for MGRW?
If you ever need crew, I got a buddy who lives in Houston that I have raced with several times and is a great Viper crew (not a fat ass like myself,- ie will hike)

Good to know about the transport option

We are signed up for MGRW.  Also plan on sailing two regattas on Galveston Bay before that so we will at least know where the front of the boat is and how the sails work.

Does your friend know alot about sail trim etc for the Viper?  How about rig tuning etc?  At this point I need all the help I can get.

I look forward to meeting you.

Brad s problem might be too much crew.  He has 4 boys between a Sr in highschool and Sr in college ( is that right brad?)   I've met his two older sons and they are solid sailors, and all around good guys.   
Drake, joey is just going to have to get his own damn boat!

There are going to be a lit of young sailors in the fleet this year.  Both new hyc owners have teenagers that will be sailing with them....  my 11 year old and Juan 13 yr old son.   We might have to get a special trophy for the top finishes where 2/3 of the crew are related or something.   I think that would include 75 percent of our fleet.    Then another where the boat is 100% family....  about 25% of our fleet....     seeing the boat bring families together on the recourse is priceless...  hearing their discussions during maneuvers, not so much.
