Re: Nebraska sailor

From that far away, you can't see the PVC. I was going to say that I can't imagine people making redneck jokes, but people are cruel, so unfortunately, I can. But I think most of us here would think that's a pretty simple solution to the problem of getting that boat onto the water. Personally, I've seen a lot worse.

And don't be ashamed of your $150 boat. I bought my Albacore for $100. Sailing isn't about the cost of the boat, it's about the value of the time you get to spend aboard.

I wouldn't let people pointing at you be the reason that you're looking for new spars and rigging. Most of 'em are jealous because they aren't out there on a boat at all.

OK, stepping down from my soap box now. Welcome aboard!
