Fred, if the guy who washes the boat put 50 litres of water into Giulietta's bilges, tell your father he can just put his angry head into the water and it will turn into steam. Your new English word for today is "evaporation": evaporação
Don't take it personally...you know how your father is about the boat!
He is right about the U.S. money now, though: even with the expense of shipping an Optimist to Portugal, it is likely to be less expensive to buy it in the U.S., maybe enough to get better sails cut in Portugal.
