Brooksie created the topic: Fastest sailboat ever!

We were out boating in yesterday in the 75 degree sunny weather :whistle: :woohoo: and as we left the boat ramp, this guy came sailing by:



I don't believe I've ever seen a sailboat with a motor that fast!! They usually just have slow little trolling motors!

Just thought it was funny looking!

Brooksie :kiss:

P.S. For all my cold weather friends.. trust me I didn't enjoy it at all! Damn it I can't lie.. I was at least thinking about you ! B)

There is a fine line between sanity and insanity.... Come walk it with me!

That looks more like a cabin cruiser with sails added, than any typical sailboat I've seen.

And its in the 30s-40s here, no snow thank goodness, Seattle doesn't handle snow here at all.

@ Benno ... it was just an Evenrude outboard 40 hp - not that much at all but he was cruising right along!

@ Nicki... :( You have an open invitation to come anytime you want! Spare bedroom all made up. Mustang is in getting an new paint job tough but back by Friday. It is 82 today... so sorry to say! OK - not sorry!!! :woohoo: :woohoo:

@ Cebo... sorry bout your weather too... wish you were in CA again?

@ Gryphon... We see sailboats all over the place but I have never seen one with an outboard that fast!!! He was getting alot of looks! Sorry bout your weather too!

@ hex... It is awesome here right now isn't it!! And I remember last year at this time we were still cold. I thought the warmth would never come! Highest heating bill I've ever paid. Last month was bad enough - paid $400 for my heat last month! No insulation on these damn houses. Not meant to get that low in temps!

LOL :lol: Yes I do. This is the time of the year where winter drags on and I think, "What did I get myself into moving here". I lived in california my whole life, until less than 4 years ago I moved to Oregon. and a part of Oregon that is almost a mile high and snows all winter. :lol:

But spring and summer will be here soon, and I will love the weather here. :)

I was a military brat and moved all over the US and have had various weather to deal with. I had never lived any further south than VA. I lived in NH for 15 years... 15 years of snow and ice. There use to be seasons - spring, winter, summer, fall. Not sure what happen to them but they disappeared. I had rain & ice.. there was more ice and rain and slush than snow. I got tired of it. Moved as far south as I could and fell in love with the warm warm weather of FL. Lots of old people though - sorry if I offend anyone.

Keep your snow everyone! I'll keep my sunshine! :P
