Vasco-

I think you've hit on the reason CD likes dual wheels...so that Kris can actually control the boat while it looks like CD is at the helm.

Guess they each wanted to pass the buoy on a different side. True story, I was on the dock when she came in with the bashed in port side.

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.
