In NJ today at Liberty State Park, Paul Dugard and I, along with Sammy, went to fly kites. Did I mention it was blowing 30 easy and steady with gusts over 40. :o Oh yeah, it was raining pretty good too!!!!!!
Some of you have seen my beloved Barnacle Bill. So named because he has wrapped himself up pretty good around some barnacle encrusted pilings. Also many roofs, and other assorted sharp edges. Heheheheheh!!!!!
As JB, Bazzer and Ben have all noted, it looks like a kite that has been flown with a lot of love!

Today tho, he met his match......
Sammy didn't fly (WIMP!!!!!!!!!!!!) but he did shoot some iphone vid which he will post when the Sabbath ends tomorrow but for now here are a few pics snapped on my blackberry.

Mel, I already made the same offer, I told him to give it to Paul and have him bring it by on the way home...

I think a nice pink patch could fix that kite up nicely! :lol:

Hi Rich-

Great job!!!!Posted Image

I know I made the decision not to be out there if it was too bad, but damn, I wish I was there!!!! Between Barnicle Bill's demise and Paul D breaking his 3 and 4 wrap together (while being doubled up!!!!)Posted Image, I missed some good stuff!!!!
From what I understand, Paul's bridle went and then the LE.... I wonder how loud it was!!!
Bummer..... we do have the weekend at Rockaway, though.


Hi MelnSctnLaurel-

How's everything? Coming to Rockaway? Posted Image
Nice SDUL!!! You have to try the Zen when you get a chance.... it truly is AMAZING!!!!

Barnacle Bill looks very fixable, I've seen far worse damage repaired to fly again.
