A friend of mine sent me this picture of Lady Bug at Angel Island. Nice picture, shows how beautiful the day was. But it struck me...I'm pretty fastidious about cleaning the boat up when I get back to the marina, why did I leave her all messed up at the dock at Angel Island?
This is the equivalent of leaving your house all showered and shaved, going to work and immediately messing up your hair, untucking your shirt, loosening your tie and spilling coffee on your pants. What the hell? That's not very seamanlike.
How hard would it have been to flake the main and the jib properly, tie them down neatly, and leave my boat making a better impression. Lord knows she's competing with much newer, nicer and more expensive boats for attention at the dock, why handicap her further?
