Photobucket apparently has changed it's position and is again hosting photos. Accordingly, all my photos and other persons can now be seen on this thread...from the beginning.

Photobucket seems to have disappeared again--no photos from Photobucket are available. Any pictures on my posts are hosted by Cloudinary.com

Now, PB is back again and all my pictures are available again. Hopefully, as of 10:18 PM, May 25, 2018, they will stay...but don't count on it. :-)

Their behaviour is still inexcusable as far as I am concerned. Obviosly their initial attempt at extortion, by holding our existing images to ransom, was an abject failure, so now they are offering a greatly reduced amount. Am I the only one who believes this was the cynical strategy asll along, to initially offer a ridiculous price, and then subsequently appear to be the "heroes" by slashing the price?

Either way, I still want to find somewhere else to host my images to allow posting to 3rd parties without being robbed.

I've posted this elsewhere, but putting it here also. My Trailex trailer + cradles setup. My 2014 tandem (purchased new 2015) has been on this trailer since its purchase.

When I pull the boat up on the trailer, I pull it forward to the hitch.

With that much weight cantilevered past the rear support, you don't have sagging or buckling?

PP-none that I can see. A friend of mine said he had stored his TI similarly w/o problem, which is why I tried it. I don't use the boat from July to November. I may put some stern support under it this year during that time.

Alligator kills woman in SFL

The woman was walking her dogs near this fresh water lake just outside of Miami. Dogs are like a magnet to gators. Nobody saw what happened, but you can guess something like, dogs go down to the water for a drink. Woman goes with them. Gater lurking in the water attacks the dogs, which escape (one was injured), but the woman does not. It is very rare for an alligator to kill a human in FL. But, it happens. Personally, I've always been leery around fresh water in FL. After dark, it is an absolute NO, NO. Or, borderline suicidal.

I'd like to share with you the videoclip about my one week expedition in Sardinia 2018.

Wow, nice video, Sardinian Islander! Now I want to sail in one more spot. Beautiful water.

Thanks.

I too store my TI on the exact same trailer (sans the winch) most of the time. I do pull it as far forward as possible to try to evenly distribute the weight when not actually on the road. I have had no visible issues with sagging (at least with the boat, that is).

Surgery on my right hand ended my sailing in SFL this spring. Now, I'm back in northern New Mexico at 7000'. There are sail boats around here, but sailing is limited. So, I'm back to doing my drone thing. The other morning I went down to the Rio Grande south of Pilar, NM. Here are some of my Mavic Pro's pictures. This is not the spectacular 800' deep gorge 8 miles north on the Rio Grande, but it is a fairly tight canyon through which the the Rio Grande runs.

Millions of years ago this area was covered with active volcanoes. So, the landscape has lots of basalt boulders. Here are a couple of abandoned homesteads.

This closer view seems to show some terracing.
