1. Spring has finally sprung in Rhode Island. Warmer days, water temp is up to 47 F, which sounds cold but feels warm after paddling in 30 F in January.
    Kincora did not have a long list this winter, which worked out well since I have added a few new aspects to my business. More on that in the next blog post.

    This summer will be an active one with a lot of fun miles planned on Kincora. Two races signed up for are the 160 miler which is a big single handed race out of Newport, then a week later the Solo/twin which I will do solo again this year. After that a fun trek to Maine with John for cruising for a couple of weeks then back for the end of Aug. There are a few other races that I might even do double handed.

    A few things I did not put in the video were servicing the winches, adding a new LMR 240 coax wire and Ultra Whip VHF antenna in the mast. New halyards, and a couple of new sheets. So the lady is ready for launch the second week in May

    Cheers Paul

  2. Welcome to Episode 39

    How I choose my single-handed boats

    This episode is a request and a great subject. Having owned a very wide variety of singlehanded boats over the last 40 years, I have narrowed down my requirements. And of course over the years it is always changing.

    Throughout this show I will show my major bullet points for the features that matter to me so I can go fast, and have a blast sailing singlehanded. This is a little longer show then most of the shows since there is so much to cover. Close to 150 sailing clips giving great examples with some of the boats I have owned.

    If you would like any one of these bullet points as their own episode, just ask. There is so much information to cover I could go on for a season.

    So if you are interested in shorthanded sailing, have a boat, want a boat, or are modifying a boat, check out this video, and hopefully it will help you enjoy the experience.

    Please follow my In and OUT of the Boat Shop series.

    And if you would like to sponsor this series or know of a business that might please let me know. paulcroninstudios@gmail.com

  3. Welcome back to In and Out of the Boat Shop. Yes, it has been a few weeks since the last show. I have been on the road for work five times in the last six weeks. So a busy start to the new year, it is all good.

    So between a few clients edits, I was able to film the narrative for this episode in the shop, and finish the edit. Thank you for your patients. This show is a request from a few of the shows followers. When I receive that type of input I am happy to oblige. So sit back and enjoy some great footage, as I go over how last seasons upgrades and changes worked and did not work.

    Launching date is three months away, and I have an ambitious winter work/show schedule, so stay tuned.

    Paul Cronin Studios is in the process of searching for sponsors for the show. If you are interested or know of a company that would be interested please let me know.

    Have Fun and hopefully all of you are enjoying some fun time on the water.

    Cheers, Paul

  4. Welcome to season two of In and OUT of the Boat Shop. Hard to believe I started this show just a year ago, so much has happened. And I am just getting started.
    The next show is in the edit studio, so stay tuned.
    i want to thank all my sponsors, viewers, and the people who follow my Vimeo Channels and this show, you are the ones who keep me going. This season has some exciting topics and lots of sailing miles planned.
    So enjoy the winter ride on a new tool I have added to my filming kit, a drone. Just think of all the fun footage I can grab with this on the water.
    See you Soon!

  5. Ah December, I love the holidays and the excitement for the new year. I know it is only numbers on a calendar, but a restart and the exciting adventures ahead make it a fun time.

    This time last year, the In and OUT of the Boat Shop, Vimeo show was only an idea. Now a year, and 36 episodes later it has a great following and continues to grow.

    I am ready for another great year expanding my commercial work, and keeping In and OUT of the Boat Shop rolling along with Kiincora and beyond.

    So, this episode is a little treat, I put together going through the sailing clips for the past season. Sit back and enjoy the fun ride with a little Christmas Cheer.

    Happy Holidays to all
