You are entitled to your opinion. In this case the client likes it. When you build yours you can delete it. I think I'm with you on that detail.

But I'm not done yet. I have an idea.

Hope you enjoy the book Jak. My royalties are small but I'm hoping to make a lot of money from selling the movie rights.

Bob what's he doing for sail handling? Don't see the spools in front of masts for leisure furlers.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Gee wilickers Faster. It's Saturday. I'm listening to the opera and watching women's curling. I have important things to do!

What I have in mind is exagerating the curvature to the window. It was looking too orthoginal. I'm going to look at it like this for a while. We tried an eyebrow around it but I did not care for that. Foir now I like this look. Now get your ass out the door and buy that lottery ticket. Buy two.


Out:
We are going with an Offshore Spars all carbon rig. It will be their version of Leisure Furl with all the goodies inside the boom. You won't see anything.

Not sure. Maybe I have been doing the housework too long.
But there is something about an athletic woman, in tight pants, bent over, with a broom in her hands. " Here honey. Let me help you with that."

If it comes down to watching women's curling or men's figure skating I have to go with the women's curling.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Brent likes to bash grp boats, so I'll post this email for him. GRO to the rescue!

Hi Bob.
Thought you'd like to know that one of your boats, called SOLQUEST, in Tasmania saved the recently relaunched 1924 8 Metre called VARG from near certain demise last weekend at the Kettering Wooden Boat Regatta. I was aboard SOLQUEST with captain/owner Garth Wigston. He did a fantastic job and the boat performed well, like a boss. Hell-built-for-stout and a design that handled the short, 1.5 meter swell and up to 70 knots like a champ. I'm working on a story right now and not sure where I'll send it for publishing. Thanks to a strong boat, muscular Perkins 120, cool and courageous captain and competent crew, I was able to fly around the boat snapping photos with my iPhone. They turned out pretty good, considering.
