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.

I'll sure give you gentlemen a ton of credit---you've got a lot more patience than I could ever muster up.

BTW, did anyone finally point the OP in the direction of the nearest RV dealership?...........

These people here must be the design engineers of Acme Co. that Wilie E. Coyote buys from.
He still can't catch the Roadrunner with all of the innovative stuff that he buys from Acme.

Hmmmmm...a fan....I have two teenage boys an 8 year old and a 2 month old. Could the same result be achieved by placing them all on the front of the boat and feeding them a high fiber diet supplemented with naval beans?

(That should put an end to this thread!)

OK since this has yet again been resurected I'll throw in my 2 cent . Hows about a great big rubber band , no ,hold that . 2 great big rubber bands (redundancy don't cha know) case we snap one or somethin' . We set up a bloody gynormo-mungus fan off Diamond Shoals say oh duno , er like em 3000 ft or so in diameter blade span.Any poor bugger getting too close to the graveyard can just VHF the Coasties and in turn they can get the Navy out to twist up the rubber bands that power said gynormo-mungus fan and scoot poor wee vessel back oot te sea. I think that be best well much bester than havin to carry yur own gynormo-mungus fan all the time . Don't you ? Oh yeah It'll be great I can see it now. Pretty soon the entire coastline of the US will be peppered with Rubber Band Fan Farms ( I meant Double Rubber Band Fan Farms- redundancy dont cha know) . Then we can all just forget about beating the weather, current, tides ,clock, stars , compass , barrometer , vessel and crew into our will ( you know 'sailing' )to go from point A to B ."Cheating death yet again" we cry from the dock no more , no more . Alas poor sailboat you have met your match . Ladies and Gentlemen behold

The Doubble Rubber Band On Shore Fan Farm
(redundancy dont cha know )

man its gonna be great just you wait oh yeah the guy that started this is now most def driving a Bayliner
