Any reason your main content is right-justified text. It really should be left justified, since that will make it far more readable.

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.

Great site - is that a wordpress free template that you customized or did you do it from scratch? Asking because we are shopping around to possibly leave blogger.

Thanks, Livia! Yes, it's a wordpress template: theme 'Digg 3'. I like the vibe on wordpress. They also have a lot of themes to choose from, some more customizable than others.

Nice blog... Wasn't May your deadline? Let us know by Sunday what you got.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.

The blog looks great. I learned many,many things during the prucahse process. The most important is that finding the right boat takes time and its best to be really, really loose on those schedules.

Hope you find the perfect boat soon!

Thanks, everyone! Here's the scoop: as I've just posted elsewhere on SailNet, I'm not breaking out the sparkling apple juice yet because money and papers don't change hands until morning. However, I'm very pleased to have found what I believe is an excellent value and combination of compromises for a boat for my purposes and budget. I'll keep you posted and hope to have celebratory news tomorrow!
