Re: The Jibster

Jibsters sail sailboats. The rest of us, push buttons to outhaul a sail, push buttons to trim a sail, push buttons to start our yanmars, push buttons to navigate, push buttons to raise an anchor, push buttons to adjust the auto pilot. We spend thousands to squeeze out an extra knot. We have back ups for the back up GPS. Jibsters sail sailboats. I respect them. Me personally? I want to sail fast and want to know exactly where I am on the face of the earth.
