Yo Giu - what's the issue with knots over ground vs. knots over agua for boat speed? Doesn't the former present more accurate speed as it's not affected by current, etc.? It seems like a GPS would be more accurate in this regard than a speedo on a boat. No?

Chall - Giu's basic premise is...if he can't do it - it can't be done. There's also the issue of the BFS Cup - so he's a little on edge. So don't sweat it. Then again, the knots vs. kmh is a valid point. I say keep it at 50 and have another beer.

Bene - just vote for someone dammit!
