This is the home page for the Y KNOT, a 1986 Watkins 25 sailboat owned by John and Cindi Myers.  This boat has taken us on many adventures over the last 15+ years and this page will try to chronicle them as well as other trips without the boat.

Note:  Over the years as the internet became faster and monitor resolution increased, the resolution of the photos has also been increased.  For best results, after you open the photo gallery, change your browsers page zoom level to better view photos.  Make sure you can see the arrow buttons below main photograph without having to pan the screen.  Older years will need more zoom, newer years less or none.
