Actually, I knew about the Genny before we went out but didn't wanna hoist it because the wind was up. The Jib shouldn't have blown out in a 30 knot puff as it was a 90 or 100% but it was old and weak I suppose. We were trimmed better than the fleet it seems, since we smoked their butts on the course. I'm looking forward to hearing how it goes when he gets a chute.

Smack, ya get that Flip video camera yet?

Heh-heh. Busted again!

It's true that I do have a "one-sail-shred-per-guest" quota on my boat. But Charlie more than made up for it with the speed he milked out of my old boat. Alex, you would have been proud, man! We honestly were crankin' out there. So the Westies are indeed fast!

Then he topped the whole thing off with the rig tuning and a fine cigar! How can I complain? It was a great day.

I'll keep the tiller warm for you Giu! Come on down and rip my genny dude! (Sailhog - it's not what you think. Relax.)

Not yet - I'm still looking for the one that has the "seastate enhancement" feature.

After Chall's smack-talking and Chuckles' dubious tone, I gotta find something to give me that edge.

Otherwise, I might lose some credibility around here! Heh-heh.

Smack, wait for a big ass ferry to go past and try and sit the smacktanic (with your Genny doused for the occasion of course and borrowed storm jib centre frame) right in Ferry's wake and SNAP.

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.
