Re: How Far Do You Heel...?
Just want to point out how lucky we all are. We all have whatever level of experience, interest, academic background to opine on various topics. But we get to read and interact with a truly accomplished yatch architect.
It reminds me of a conversation I had years ago with a large animal vet (my wife is an equestrian and has had several horses over the years). He was describing his "experience" of horse owners.
"There are two ways I know of to becoming an equestrian vet and an expert on horses. The first is to go to college, go to veterinarian school, intern, pass your boards. The other is to buy a horse."
