It must have been a copy of the most important book out there: "How to make friends and Influence people"..

He must have received it by now.
Not a "I got it."

No " Pretty cool, thanks."
Nuttin.
They must not have taught him any manners as a kid.
Weird.
While I understand your core point, maybe Brent is waiting until Christmas Morning to open his present and thank you. That does not preclude a 'got it'.

Thank you for your kind words. With a little luck there will be lots more falls and a lot more chances to meet. I'll look forward to meeting you as well.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Acubens 656 , a pretty light boat for an all steel boat...and it seems that it is also surprisingly fast. Designed by a Spanish naval engineer:

:::Construcción Comoloco:::

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Actually, I believe Brent said a day or three ago, he was heading back out cruising in his warm pilot house boat. So while he may have received it! he may not have been to the mail pickup to "receive it!"

I also noticed the sliver is "OUTSIDE" the building, and has a mast on it! neat black bottom paint job.......that is about all I saw at 25 mph going by CSR! it is getting there!

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I think Brent would like this sailor and his steel boat - and his budget! He spends a lot less than Brent and his boat looks pretty good as well.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I think you are right. Perhaps Brent is saving the package for Christmas morning.
I don't need a thanks I would just like to know he received it.

So for now we'll leave it as a surprise.

Marty:
Yes, They stuck the mast in FRANCIS LEE yesterday for the first time. Some more rigging details to be taken care of and then the cove stripe has to be applied in exact accordance with my drawing and dimensions.

Definite soul brothers! The owners of that red boat sure are head of the class scumbags aren't they?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken, opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
