Factors influencing boat balance
That''s a might generous offer there, but I will have to decline for logistical reasons.
As to the physics of sailing being a "mind-numbing subject," I sure don''t consider it that way. You''ve most certainly got a lot more sailing knowledge already stored away in your skull than I do, and you''re not numb (I hope).
Once I get the boat (counting down about 15 months), I''ll have lots to keep me occupied, don''t worry. Have you ever viewed the Cruising World BB? Talk about people with too much time on their hands. It''s a regular Kaffee Klatsch with folks arguing over any and everything they can think of. At least SailNet''s BB is civilised most of the time.
Enjoy your sail this weekend, Denr.
