    Since I have sold my boat (22ft CC 1929) I no longer feel it appropriate to flaunt it as my avatar.

    This is the picture I have had as my avatar since I registred here on OF. It is from one of the first years of ownership. I had just restored its exterior but it still retained that awful white paint on the bottom. I later painted it a dark green and even later - a more period correct black.

    After 10 years of restoration and a lot of nautical miles it was time to let it go.

    As my new avatar I have adopted something more fitting. I am a big fan of Gary Larsons "On the far side". I often feel a personal connection to his world and its inhabitants.

    This is the original:

    And as a warning sign (my wife has long considered this image a portrait of me) I give you.....

    That one is actually one of my all time top favourites (the strip - not STANDY ;)). The one I pick out to show those who are not familiar with Larsons work. That one and "the standing cows".

    16, sixteeeeeen members without avatars.

    I suggest they are provided with avatars from "the far side" or just a random pic of D Hasselhoff.

    How can we loose? We are all winners here. We get to hang out with you, keep you on your toes AND look at watches at the same time. You have something to do, something to worry about AND look at watches at the same time.

    I think it is perfect... :);)
