If your asking what a 420 is, they are 4.2 meter long dinghies that typically are sailed by teenagers.

I think that you should learn how to spell "right" before you do anything else!

no one is "bullying" you, perhaps you'd like to wait at least 48 hrs after your inital login before making disparaging comments.

Thanks Sam. Wow. I grew up in the area this originated and was in H.S. at that time. Additionally, I smoked. Although maybe not a part of the "pot culture", I did imbibe. Funny, I never heard the term.

Actually, you're all wrong. The fastest dinghy is my own! Much to my wife's dismay.
