We want some photos of you under sail, okay? Congrats on the purchase.
The cockpit is actually the most comfortable one I've ever been in - it was one of the principal drivers behind wanting one. It's bigger than it looks, easily seating 5 or 6 people. As to water below - I'm not going offshore so....
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
