Galatea at the mooring - Friday, August 31st, 2007
So far, this is the best photo of the Galatea sitting at her mooring. It was taken right before our steering debacle and, not surprisingly, the serenity of this picture does little to suggest the nonsense that would follow. This was snapped on a point-and-shoot by a friend - I have a few distant shots myself but nothing worth posting. This is the ultimate problem with the boat and photos, of course. As the one who is most often rowing out to the boat, and if not the pilot than at least always one of the crew while on the boat, it isn't easy to get nice pictures of her in action other than from the deck itself. Perhaps some day I can convince a fellow sailor to drop me off in the dinghy while they dance her around me.. a fashion photo-shoot of another sort altogether.
