actually i don't care if it's ok with any body.

I also like single handing. I often have to show instructor candidates how to single hand, so I have to keep that skill up to snuff. The best way to learn something is to have to teach it to someone else.

I do occasionally for fun. I like to get out by myself occasionally as well; I just do not get to do that much.

I have called you none of that.

I have also calculated the risk. I will single hand when I am awake. Would I single hand back from Hawaii; after last summer the answer is no.

The OP asked a question. I give a more cogent opinion an hour ago.
