I guess I could measure my reef 1 and 2 (which are installed by machine) and see if by accident they are 35mm.

If I may ask, how much (roughly) is the Godiot gizmo?
Hmm... I couldn't tell you, I don't remember how much I paid for them. I bought them off of a friend down at the marina, who bought them in France to complicate the issues, and they were priced in Euros, and I bought them in USD.

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.
