Episode 77

April 6, 2009 9:59 pm

This one is for Bill Nolan, though I'm not sure he'll like it.

You sailors out there (though I doubt many of you are the sorts of salty retirees who tend to sail Catalinas) will have to forgive me if I drew the rigging all wrong here.  I was working from memory to a large extent.  If you find it odd that the main sheet is running into the middle of the cockpit, however, just keep in mind that this boat is equipped with a barney post.

You've been told.

Annoying isn't it?  Don't mind me.  Just skip this one if you're not interested.  I'll have something for everyone next time.

  2. yay!

    i'm really wondering what happened in the last year, the comics used to be different.

    looking forward to the next one.

  3. Hi flo,

    Well, the font used for the text is different, and the panels, while still the same size, are turned so the vertical dimension is longer.

    But maybe you're referring to the more middle-aged themes. You can chalk that up to me being a year older. Maybe I needed to get older before I could draw it. I mean, I'm not middle-aged, but I am turning ****** this month. It's got me a bit reflective.

  5. Confusing terminology? Getting whacked by the boom? Yeah, it's sailing, all right!

    Good to the strip again.

  7. Oh, the jargon is half the fun of sailing! And yes, having a wonderful time regardless sounds about right. Nice strip!

  9. Refreshingly, a sailing story that ends with the 'old salt' coming out the worst off, rather than the rookie!

    Very exciting to have you posting so soon. Thanks!
