Smackster - thanks!

Ok - I hit the link. Great story (BFS). It got me going again. Thanks!

Sooo.....
Good story. I have the utmost respect for this guy, his handling of stuff, his knowledgable opinion, and more. I love the story and detail.

It makes me want to comment 'cause it's a good story.
Simply:
I like that the guy is making a statement (backed up) about his thoughts re: saiboat design, how he has changed his thoughts because he saw new stuff.

Sailboats
Fast is good
Built to handle whatever you're gonna get into is good
Big engines can be cool.

Fast vs heavy(and other related ideas): great topic.
What is the boat for a person. Why.....

Lots of different ideas on what works best!!
Too much to consider here.
Anyway, good bfs.
Oh ya - Im thinking this:
A big part of sailing is getting.. Uh, that sometimes snit sucks.
Seasickiness can really suck.
Really.

Dramamine (or similar, to my knowledge) helps to avoid seasickness. Yep, makes ya tired. Doesn't work well to take it after ya wanna puke.

Cool story. I love the stories of guys pushin their limits.

Safe sailing
Max
