One of the problems on my boat is the dodger blocks so much of the wind, that it is often hard to figure out how bad it really is... first time I took her out single handed, I froze my butt off... since it seemed okay on the way out... but on the way back, which was downwind... the wind came straight over the stern and I wasn't dressed warmly enough... Didn't have the autopilot setup yet, so getting the polar fleece out from the cabin wasn't really possible... LOL...learned my lesson that day.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
