Re: Please Help Me.

To the OP, what if we had taken a different tack, say we agreed with you that fixing the boat was more than you could handle and we patted you on the back while you moaned and groaned? What if we actually encouraged you to wail and gnash your teeth over a broken centerboard? Maybe you would have agreed and given up. But we didn't do that did we? No, we took careful aim and gave you a swift kick in the pants, told you to man up and finish the job. Instead of being pissed at us, you should buy us all a round or two when our wakes cross.
