When I first met Dylan, he called me "Mr. Talky." Now his mother has brought to my attention the fact that some visitors to my Ruf Seas blog are only interested (such as it were) in my experiences with the sailboat, and not necessarily in any ancillary narrative or supplemental material of indirect relevance ("like all that stuff on mosquitos").
Effective immediately, posts to Ruf Seas will focus on matters directly related to the operation and maintenance of the sailboat. In appropriate places a link may be provided to a separate blog, Ruf Drafts, where readers may find further stimulating background material related to adventures with the 'Piao.'
