CP is falling for the darkside again...he's drooling over a powerboat.

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 think CP is a human-shaped ferret, considering how easily shiny objects distract him.

Dog,
I'm just as inclined towards sailing as you but I'm naturally just a bit suspicious of anyone who couldn't consider a few uses that such a "stink-pot" couldn't be put to use in. (g) On one of those swealtering August days with absolutely zero wind, the CardioKid and I will wave to you as we tow some of those nubile young maidens about water-skiing. And no one will doubt that, if we do a "On Golden Pond" number, that we didn't go out smiling!

Sway-

I never said that powerboats don't have their uses.... I just don't drool over them... I've seen the fuel dock bills that are attached to some of them... not pretty at all.

I'm with you sway.
Love some of the old classics.
That Hinkley would be a great Boat for the Chicago to Miami run.

Nice looking vessel, hope those winches on the mast ain't used for hoisting the mainsail.
The largest yacht here in Torrevieja is the 120ft SY Onyx, from Berlin, last 3 times he's taken her out they came back with only half the boom...
