Header Photo: Australian Historical 10-Foot Skiffs - To the Back of the Bus!
This is the second time I have featured the crazy Australian 10-foot Historical Skiffs in a header photo. To fit three grown adults in a 10 foot racing dinghy and pile on the sail area is bad-ass in the extreme. Here is a onboard video of one racing. Join me in marveling as the crew camps out in the back of this rolly-rolly bus downwind (sometimes you just have to sit on the transom). The action heats up at about 2 minutes into the video.
Bald but my eyebrows are growing at a prolific rate. Sailed Windmills and Y-Flyers in the 1960's. Founded Miami University (OH) sailing team. Sailed International 14's and Lasers in the 1970's. Sailed International Canoes in the 1980's to mid 1990's. Sailed Classic Moths since 2002. Enjoy boatbuilding though I'm very, very slow at it (the Internet doesn't help matters). Name in real life: Rod Mincher
After choosing this username (Tweezer is the name of my Classic Moth), further research on the Internet turned up that Tweezerman is a corporate name for a line of pedicure products. Let me emphasize that I do not work for, nor endorse these products.
