    Sewing Discussion - Me and My Girls

    Well we were preparing to sew the Pink Hammock for my daughter,
    and figured we should do a test project, to make sure it would all work out . . .

    Also we thought it might be fun to film the planning stage . . .

    It is a little long winded, but, could be kinda fun . . .

    Bradley - that was precious! Your girls are adorable and you are so patient. The way you involve them and explain things is great. Your explanation of "parameter" by way of "perimeter" was excellent. Post more as the project progresses.

    I think there are a fair # of ex-sailors on HF. My wife thinks the fiddle-factor, knots and self-sufficiency are similar between sailing and hammocking. I'd add that you get to be in nature without modern conveniences clouding the picture. Oh yeah, I lived on my boat for almost a year while I sailed the Gulf of Mexico.

    Thank you Jay
    I am a little older to have young children,
    But I think it enables me to be kind of grandfather-ish in my thinking . . .

    Sailing is/was a most excellent passion that I miss,
    lived and sailed my 3 boats in the Fraser river and salt chuck just beyond.
    I was slipped between the dock and the dyke in my Cal 28,
    and was able to sail to and away from the dock . . . yea.

    Sailed many times at night, and solo . . .

    I may have been the only one to sail between 3000 boats at anchor
    during the Vancouver Celebration of Light Fire works as they were underway . . .

    But the Gulf of Mexico . . . man


    For the sailors out there here is Sand Castle

    The attached is my cal28 "Nammo"

    But we could talk sailing through the nights over a camp fire on a hike . . .
