Hard to imagine someone actually living on this thing:

Aloha, Estuary, it was a fun month. The shoppers were out at Michaans for the Giant Flea Swap-O-Rama for their First Sunday shenanigans:
The Bay Bridge is coming along nicely:
And who should be on hand to greet us back in the Home Port but Ed Shirk on Kelly:
Lay Day: 6.30
As Satchel Paige is supposed to have said: “Don’t look back, they might be gaining on you.”
Lunch at the Encinal Yacht Club – all the Bay Area YC’s have pools, right?
Encinal’s busy guest dock:
The folks from J-World were out and about:
And the Boat Name Of The Day – it’s a little hard to read because of the “trying to come about and take pictures at the same time” issue, but “Graceful Exit” sounded like a fine sentiment:

Screwin’ around: The tug “Sound Reliance” was in the Bay Ship & Yacht drydock last week – and got some shiny new screws:

And finally, our Boat Name Of The Day: The Santana 22 “Laches”. It’s a legal term, meaning essentially if you snooze, you loose.
Here’s the “legal definition” from WikiWiki:
The person invoking laches is asserting that an opposing party has “slept on its rights,” and that, as a result of this delay, circumstances have changed such that it is no longer just to grant the plaintiff’s original claim. Put another way, failure to assert one’s rights in a timely manner can result in a claim being barred by laches. Laches is a form of estoppel for delay.
Vigilantibus non dormientibus æquitas subvenit.
Equity aids the vigilant, not the sleeping ones (that is, those who sleep on their rights).
