Proudly multi holed, and still don't sink.

Proudly I say, because a) our holes don't stink (dry bilge) and b) they are shallow, not the deep dark holes in the water I see berthed alongside.

T34C-

Tell ya what... I'll come up there... and we can race...but the deal is that we both have to pull the knotmeter transducers out of the boat before beginning the race and leave the hole open.. I'm pretty sure I can spot you a mail sail and still win. I bet you don't make it out of the harbor.

If a boat is, "a hole in the water into which money is thrown", are the owners of Cats, and Tri's considered multi-holers?

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.

Danny33 is on a distinguished road
iM WORKING ON MY OWN fuel saving project up here .
Ive tied up 31 sea gulls on to my rigging .
when I scare them the boat moves fairly well in a dead wind !
I plan on tieing up six more and should be able to get 1 knot in still seas .
and no tide.
