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.

not true...not true..I do a lot of things... not as many as I wanted, because of work and being away some times, but I do a lot..

I installed the dodger, the mast steps, I repaired several things that broke...I do a lot actually...if I can't do it then someone else does it...but not normally

You do know that I'm joking... right???

BTW, have you gotten the boom yet??? Huh... or did it get held up in customs... I know...they shipped it air freight via Continental airlines...

Someday G, i'm going to sail over there and race you. I know i could win. Hull/displacment ratios won't matter....i am putting this special paint on the hull thats going to make my boat way faster! I have created a revolutionary electric/garden hose drive that runs on AAA batteries and completely recharges itself whenever i fart!

That's cool, we'll have to call you Giu the Tool Man (here's a reference in case this joke is too parochial Tim Taylor (fictional character) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) , but no drilling in the hull, and definitely no hammers...
by the way, what's with a French boom? Would you buy a Citroen? The guys at Selden Seldén Mast AB could have taken care of you...A French boom - that will be slow - it'll only work 32 hours a week..

Hey its all sail area versus displacement, while Catalinas have some beef, they also usually have some mast...I would think that Buzzards bay is a good venue for your SC 31, you must enjoy the afternoon South-Westerlies that blow so often, with gusto.
