    After finally getting the mast up on our sailboat, we went on a nice evening sail. I brought my Nikon P80 along and took these shots. The only things done are cropping/rotating and converting to B&W.

    This one was at full zoom, yes all 18X, so its not that great.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Some lovely shots you've posted. The warm light in that first one brings back good memories of summer sails. And I love the second one, with the whooshing water behind the winch. Third one is nice too, but I especially like the first two

    ours is actually a '85...and yes a 30ft kin keel, skeg rudder

    most of the ones I have are more documentary, and not really that interesting but i'll go ahead with these.

    Most of my time on the boat has been spent rigging it. My dad and I still have PLENTY to work on. But the boat is sailing and no longer mastless, so all is good. I'll have plenty of time to get some pics when the boat is at least clean.

    Welcome to ThePhotoForum, Ohlins!
    Nice photos here with which you're introducing yourself. I best like the second (no doubt), but also the top one of the new series is nice in blue and white only.
