Cruising Never Ends.
For Arlington Couple
Outdoor Ml tor
For most boat owners, the cruising season still Is
several weeks away.
Not for Philip M. Jullien, jr., Corinthian Yacht
Club’s fleet captain. The season already has started.
Better to say it never ended, because Phil and his
wife, Dorothy, cruise all winter.
That’s rare, since the average boatman ties up
in November, stores his gear,
puts on the boat covers and
doesn't touch his pride and Joy
again until fitting out time in
the spring.
Os course, there are the few
who can sail their yachts to
Florida and spend the winter
in plush surroundings, but
them we’re not considering.
Laying up your boat is quite
unnecessary, Jullien insists. “If
you pick your weather you can
have Just as much fun as in
the summertime,” he says.
Fiberglass Protects Hull
How about ice and snow?
Pooh, says Phil. "Snow’s no
problem and as for ice, I can
crack through any reasonable
thickness with the fiberglass
sheath on my hull.”
That’s true enough. Phil’s
38 - foot Richardson sedan
cruiser, the Dorien n, has two
thicknesses of fiberglass in a
band 14 inches wide extending
from the bow back 18 feet on
each side. The fiberglass was in
stalled for the express purpose
of breaking ice.
And come any weather ex
cept the unusual conditions
which beset the Washington
area recently, the Julliens can
be seen .heading out of their
South River mooring for a
cruise to Annapolis, down the
bay or even to Ocean City.
Moors at Selby Bay
Phil moors the Dorien n at
Selby Bay Yacht Club, of which
he also is a member, for con
venience. It’s quicker to the
bodies of water he likes, Chesa
peake Bay and the ocean.
The thick ice finally cleared
out of South River last week
end. Just to prove his point
about winter cruising Phil in
vited two friends. Mr. and Mrs.
Clifford V. Werlla of Silver
Spring, Mrs. Covell and myself

Cliff, an ex-Navy man, is an j
instructor in the piloting course
given by the Potomac River
Power Squadron, of which
Jullien is treasurer.
Whitecaps on River
The day was cloudy and not
cold, but a sharp wind sent
whitecaps curling and we came
heavily bundled in insulated 1
Jackets and warm mittens. We
were in for a surprise. A ther
mostat-controlled electric heat
er hooked to the 110-volt cir
cuit at the dock had kept the
cabin comfortable and before
long we were in shirtsleeves.
Phil started the two 150-
horsepower Grays and an over
sized auto heater took over to
furnish additional heat.
While we watched the Bendlx
depth finder sounding out the
shoals, Phil headed the boat out
of South River and across its
choppy mouth into West River
where we headed comfortably
for the West River Yacht Club
on Cadle Creek.
There we tied up for a short
visit and then proceeded to
Zang’s Pier at Galesville, a bee
hive in summer but now silent
and deserted. We tied up and
had lunch, with the highlight
hot biscuits produced by Mrs.
Jullien from a tiny oven atop
the galley range.
Afterward we cruised slowly

Jullien a wide cruising radius.
Gas, he said, is no problem in
winter cruising, but fresh water
sometimes is difficult to obtain
because most docks have their
outlets cut off to protect them
from freezing.
Jullien, who has been a boat
man since he paddled canoes
on Lake Placid, N. Y., while
attending prep school, parted
with a 30-foot steel Safticraft
to acquire the Dorien n in
September, 1956.
The new boat sleeps eight

comfortable cruising. Including

depth finder, he has a Bendix
radiotelephone and Bendix ra

last Christmas.
In February, 1957, the Jul
liens cruised to Norfolk and
then visited the Chesapeake
Lightship 20 miles out to sea.
The weather was beautiful for
the whole trip.
Start for Chineoteague
Last fall they set out with
Mr. and Mrs. Alvin M. Smith
of Silver Spring to travel to
Ocean City and Chineoteague
in easy stages. They would
travel to one point on a week
end and then have Phil’s son.
Philip m, pick them up in the
family car to return to Wash
ington. The next week end they
would drive back and continue
their cruise.
The first stage carried them
only to Balitmore, where they
were forced by bad weather
to tie up to the old frigate
Constitution. The next week
end they made Bowers, Del.,
a few miles from Lewes, but a
freak circumstance delayed the

When they reached Ocean

negotiated the inlet safely but
only after riding incoming ;

almost within touching dis

At Ocean City they decided
to take the inland waterway
to Chineoteague because of the
rough water outside.
Has Chilly Swim
“It was a bad choice,” Phil
said. The waters were shallow
and the route poorly marked.”
Jullien’s only real misadven
ture was on a December fishing
trip down the Potomac with a
party of Washington friends.
They had been trolling and de
cided to anchor near Dahlgren,
Va., for lunch and to still fish.
One of Phil’s friends dropped
over the anchor before the en

Many ski areas in recent
years have been plagued by
thefts of valuable skis from
outdoor racks and ski rooms.
A bank of locks by which a
skier may effectively check his
ski equipment in a fashion
similar to the luggage check
system in a railway station has
recently been installed at the
Cabin Mountain area.
The locks were designed by
a member of the ski club Miss

sign and formed a company
for the manufacture and in

Lock,” as the product is called.

Better Adjust Your Timing
If your ball is coming into
the strike pocket pretty con-
I sistently but isn’t carrying
strikes often enough, your ball
is dead! The best Indication is
when you consistently leave the
5 pin. Or perhaps when you
leave the 8-10 split on what
looks to be a good hit.
Adjust your timing slightly
if you have a dead ball. Make
sure you get enough finger lift
| or wrist turn into your delivery.
This extra lift or turn will give
j your ball just the rolling action
•it needs. Then, when it hits
the strike pocket, it will have
♦ enough stuff on it to carry on
i through and take care of the 5.
One way to adjust your tim
ing is to lengthen your arm
swing a bit. That brings your
iarm to the delivery point just
a fraction of a second later
and allows you to apply extra
| lift, as we illustrate today.
If adjusting your timing
doesn’t cure your "dead ball 1
i trouble, then adjust your angle
a bit. Move slightly to the left
or the right so the ball hits
(the pocket from just a little I
different angle. But don’t I
! change your angle too much,
or you may wind up missing
the pocket completely.

In 14 per cent of the mishaps,
