(And just for the record, JonEisberg, I'm not saying anything toward you. I've read many insightful, fair and reasoned posts from you.)
I really enjoyed following the Bumfuzzles as well. What a neat family they are! Their's was one of the first and only blogs I regularly followed when beginning sailing myself.
