No argument.
BTW...I assume you have the manual anchorman with the circular take up rather than the traditional vertical pumping action type. How do you like it? Do you get sufficient leverage to make it relatively easy to haul anchor or would you choose differently next time?
I tried the BBB, and it didn't seem to fit as well... so I went with the G4 High-test. I also liked the fact that it was slighty lighter and much stronger, since multihulls are a bit more weight-sensitive than monohulls. I haven't used it all that much, except for a week or so on a friend's boat, and will let you know what I think of it after a season of using it.

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.
