Re: Who from SailNet would you most like to meet in person?

Good call on meeting Bob Perry. I'd love to chat with him about boat design, hear more about his interesting life in the Taiwan yards and if he wanted to I'd be willing to answer any medical questions he had about Spike.

Another boat designer that's been conspicuously absent from this list is Brent Swain. I really get a kick out of when we're discussing watermakers, or AIS or the like and he pipes up with "You don't need to spend 2 grand on that. I welded up one from scrap metal and 2" iron pipe!". Funny thing is, I believe him when he tells us he has welded up an AIS transceiver or a time machine from $2 worth of metal. I belive him and I want to see it!

As for the fuzzy one, I plan to meet him and the whole Aussie Sailnet contingent when I'm down there. Heck, they're as rare as hen's teeth so it's not like it'll be hard to meet them all.

I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
