Ali Meller trying to find a useable mast. Its a long story, but.... the one in the boat was bent, and none of the others were quite ready to drop in the boat... a little canibalizing and the eleven year old D was ready to go..
Ali Meller/Allan Johnson Close reaching out to a widening in the West River .... in almost no wind.
A few seconds later... In what might pass for a puff.... flattening the boat by moving towards the windward rail.
Back to flat....
Macy Nelson/John Fry trying to go low in almost no wind.
Meller/Johnson sitting on the centerboard trunk, balancing out the helm and trying to steer with heel not rudder.
Another shot of Meller/Johnson pretending their 505 is a motorcycle.
Yet another shot of Meller/Johnson in light air. The photographer was a friend of Ali's hence all the photos. Note how flat the wake is in the last few images.
