Bottom paint induced brain damage... That's why you think it is fun.

2. How did a guy with no previous experience find the knowledge, materials and tools to do this?

The short answer is that I probably wouldn't have a clue (and might not even own a boat) without access to the internet and to the advice and education possible through places like Sailnet.com.

So, a quick word of thanks to all the folks here who have helped me find a real joy in life...Sailing!
Congratulations....and post some photos when you can.

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.
