Re: A simple gear question for a new sailor

They're $20. Whats the big deal? If you dont like them or dont use them, you're out a few beers at happy hour. If you use them and love 'em, then money well spent.

Personally, I find my full finger gloves a great thing. I've had more than one loaded sheet nearly burn my palm into cinder. The gloves there have paid for themselves several times over. The bigger the boats, the more loaded those sheets are!!!
