Outstanding decision. I'm not a big fan of Harken gear. I've had some and while it worked well, it always looked a bit "cheap" to me. The difference between those Harkens and Andersens really makes my point IMO.

Take care of those Andersens and they will outlive your grandchildren.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
