LOL.... would seem that TB's a bit sensitive about his motorsailor's sailing abilities... BTW, I never said it didn't sail well... just that it was a motorsailor.

Like packing a very big gun under my vest, it's there when I need it and earns some respect in most of the world as a true-blue passagemaker (unlike some 28 ft tri-hull trailer-sailors I know of ).

"Best-built motorsailer in the world" they say.

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.
