Uh, that would be an australian Main sail. I am sure I have seen pics of certain australian tying it on his head in an attempt to make his boat go faster upwind. THe reason it is all torn up is that he tried it downwind first. Luckily they found the head a few days later and were able to re-attach it with little loss to the body! In fact, the body hardly knew it was missing!!!

HEHE! DOn't let him pick on you Pollard. The guy has kids, Wombat. Ever tried typing an intelligent response with the kids screaming and wife calling for you to get off the computer and help out!??? That is why I run my household like a Monarchy. THere can only be one ruler whose command are absolute. SPeaking of that, she is calling me now...
