Chef2sail-

That isn't JRP's video IIRC. If you google for "Dana 24 kitecam" you'll get the website of the guy who did it.

I see Jrp responded before I did...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

sunfish may be a little iffy out in a blow..although, the 96 oz of gold..hmmm..tough choice, i think i'll stick w/ the morgan 41..late 60's vintage. the gold probably doesn't point very well either

Regrettably, Sanctuary Sam having spent a lot of time sailing on these older long overhang boats of that era, they were miserably wet to sail compared better examples of more modern design. They just plain threw a lot of spray and it always seemed to make it back to the cockpit.

I'll play. Give me a Hans Christian 33 for about $75k and use the remaining $25k to customize it or just keep in the cruising kitty. I love the pullman berth, though many disagree.

Kwalt,

Here's hoping you get that HC33 someday. I've seen you mention it enough over these months that I perceive it's not a whim on your part.

I was aboard one once and it is indeed a lovely boat anyone would be proud to own. P.S. I kind of like the pullman too.
