that's a thought. it would get me practice with bigger boats; winches and stuff. I don't really know anyone with a bigger boat, though. hmmm. no. that's a lie. practically everyone at Marburg knows me. I might have to ask someone about that, next time i'm up there.

although, I'll be honest, throughout my sailing life, I've never let a little thing like not having ever done something slow me down. lol. but a bit of practice would make it easier when i'm the skipper of my own cruising sailboat.
