GETTIN' WET!

Splashin' the Kouklah Pooh

That's the Family Boat!
Feels good, every year, when it comes time to get the boat into the harbor! Each fall, it is a sad day, when the boat comes out of the mooring, and onto the trailer for the winter! Each spring, it is a GOOD DAY, when the boat comes off the trailer and is launched into the harbor, to moor up.

ABOVE, The WAKE from the motor, as the Kouklah Pooh get's up on plane! That means, the boat is moving fast enough that instead of sitting deep in the water, the water pushes the boat up enough to make the boat fly a little higher in the ocean. Not sure if all know, but, a good boat hull design is similar to a wing of an airplane, and takes advantage of lower pressure on one side (above) and higher pressure (water flowing underneath) to help the boat move up "on plane!"

At the end of the day, tied up at the mooring, along with it's fellow friendly boats... and time for a relaxing a night. I hope you all had an AMAZING day, and an even BETTER night!

the scary part is, before I left for grocery shopping today, I found leftovers in the fridge that were some serious science experiments... possibly leftovers from Easter... and maybe even PRECovid Easter!

Nice!

I get so seasick I have to live vicariously through posts like these! :)

I love peeks into people's inner worlds. It's why I'm lovin' PeakD! (there's a pun there but I restrained myself - this doesn't happen often...)

You website link is broken btw. I'd like to see the site! (http://wwww.bluefinstudios.com/) - looks like a dns/redirect problem or domain renewal perhaps?)

Interesting... where did you get the link? There's an extra W at the beginning (wwwW)

Ah... I didn't see that. It's the one in the post. The website is highlighted and underline to show it is a link but the href must have the additional w

Wow, all the views are just so beautiful to behold especially that of the ocean.

And thank you for sharing that information about how the boat moves.
