scottyt is on a distinguished road
what drives me nuts with this whole thing is it not a sailboat or an ice boat. it is a wheel driven vehicle, using the wind to turn the wheels. it is not and never will it be a sailing vehicle, the only way i will ever truely call it a faster than wind sailing vehicle is if they disconnect the wheels from any driven power.
