in golden colorado

no … i didn’t sail SWEET PEA to colorado.

last week i left seattle for a 1300, three day, drive to golden CO to assist in the construction of the Sage Marine Sage 17.  the drive was fine and i spend two nights, with Momma Kitty, camping in my truck.

when i arrived in golden the temps were in the 80s.  a few days later spring weather brought a light 2″ snow that covered vehicles and the grass in town.  the foothills west of golden made for a great veiw outside the Sage Marine shop.

I have been busy working on the boat: designing the electrical system, creating patterns for the cabin cushions, talking standing and running rigging with jerry montgomery, and doing multiple other tasks required when starting  up a new company and building a new boat design.

SWEET PEA is in storage for the next few months as i will return to seattle with a new Sage 17.  in june i’ll be taking part in the two week Montgomery Sailboat Owners Group San Juan and Gulf Islands Cruise coordinated by Larry Yake.

I did take a three day trip on SWEET PEA the weekend prior to leaving seattle.  i’ll post details in a few days in the TRIPS section of this site.
