Hey, just saw the question in that post. I have no idea how or when I got the rep points. I've been nothing but a smart-ass. I'm not even sure what they're for. Maybe someone appreciates some good smartassery.

Rain, dude that is so verb! Ignore those visigoths above. They got nothin'.

It looks like you're honkin' along pretty well with just a genny doing the tug. Nice. I think GUI was almost going that fast in some of his videos under full canvass - even with the Jolly Blue Giant. You should get Cam to sticky that one so Giu can take notes. He is so noun these days.

Hey - what's it like sailing a center cockpit? I suppose all the lines run to center - but what about working the traveller, etc.? That looks like very different sailing to the us afters.

smacky- works the same, you just have to turn a bit to reach it.
You want a BFS, read this one: SimonV's Journey to Australia

Rain- Was the boogie man running the camera that day?????

Speaking of BFS's, I talked to ccam yesterday evening when he was about 10 miles off the gate in pea soup fog. From the sounds of it, they caught some Gales around Mendocino and spent a night hove-to. The buoy's showed waves to 18' with 8 sec periods at the time so I imagine he had fun. He said he did get the rail wet this time. I'll try to get him up here later today.
