Re: Make do with wrong boat
The bottom line is that I'm already having fun with her and I won't even get to sail her for the first time for another 55 days and a little under 17 hours. I may never take her offshore...but I could. That's a nice feeling.
I paid less than $50K for her.
Congratulations. Sounds like you got a gem.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
