Sailing "Balls Out" deedsphotos
Sailing is fun. Sailing can be expensive or inexpensive, relaxing, exciting or terrifying.
Note: "Balls out" refers to ball governor valves on steam engines. As the pressure increases, the ball governor spins faster and centrifugal force causes the balls on the valve to extend outward. On Mississippi River steamboats the engine room man would inform the captain "balls out" when the steam engine had reached its maximum capacity. Sailors use the term to mean "as fast as possible."Photo linked below.
Note #2: The picture of Flying Circus is not a deedsphoto, I'm not sure who the photographer of this exciting photo was. Same for the picture of Punk Dolphin taken in the Detroit NOOD 2008.
