On the sea trial, wind was 25+ kts and we had a blast!
The only downside is that I have to work for the next two days so I can't crawl all over her and start to make her more to my liking. Cheers, Bill
Is that the one you were looking at a few weeks back but the owner wouldn't negotiate on the price, or is it another one?

Either way, enjoy!

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.
