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.

G- Please show a little respect for our sailing friends. We have spent a lot of time lately discussing proper terminalogy and etiquette. Not everyone has the same abilities and experiences as you. Sometimes we need to take a kinder and gentler approach when discussing the merits and attributes of others and their respective boats. Now say it with me: They are not "side kicks", they are Training Wheels.

I'm afraid you have all missed the most OBVIOUS solution to the problem. Simply cut out the cockpit floor, thereby, lowering you way underneath the boom. See? Simple.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
