A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Wednesday, 4 March 2009


Without wanting to get too technical, a cat rigged sailing boat is one with its mast well forward, and usually unstayed, and boats rigged like this are called cat boats. (Not to be confused with catamarans which are altogetherly different.)

Felix is a cat boat.

I always say cats are gods. Thus, this is truly a heavenly boat. It is also a heavenly photograph...wonderful camera work!

definitely looks like summer! i always forget Aussies have summer during our winter! I was kayaking in the ocean yesterday and I met an aussie on the water and I wondered, now why would he visit Hawaii when Australias got much better warmer weather =) Its been kinda cold and overcast here!
