Are we talking about really good Italian sausage?

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

You think we are going to have a sharp membership falloff?? HEHE! I guess I could move it to Anything Sailing!!!

Besides, it was getting awfully quiet in here today. I thought we could use a a few laughs!! It's not every day you see a Trillion Dollars dissapear. Well, maybe it is, but that's not the point!

Stop thinking small!
Hmmm... I was getting a bit jealous today when I heard that the astronauts unveiled a solar panel bigger than mine on the Space Station. I feel kinda second best, now. Maybe we oughta up the ante?

Well CD, I think it's an Excellent idea! as a matter of fact, put me down for one.

Why is it, every time you come up with a killer idea, there is a line down the block and around the corner telling you it's crap?

what's the quote?....something like..."Don't knock my idea till you can show me the broken pieces of yours that didn't work?"

Poverty motivates me in ways prosperity never could.

A roller furling main with full roach and battens. (not those vertical ones either)

CD—

Your idea would only sell to Catalina owners... I don't need a self-leveling BBQ grill, mine works just fine attached to the stern rail as it is... Of course, my boat doesn't heel at 20˚ like yours does...

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.

Good news Larry... they have already been invented. Just add water and she's yours.

Hey... what can I tell ya? These sailors are nothing but a bunch of critics. I bet they laughed at the guy who thought about roller furlings too! And laughed at the guy that talked about making boats out of fiberglass! And laughed at the guy that broke his carbon fiber boom when he over-powered it with a Catalina Mainsail!!! Critics, I tell ya!

Here's a freebie for ya CD...Okay, I would accept a 10% royalty....

a double walled suction device (sorta like two commode plungers one larger and sitting over the other) to fit over thru hulls for when you want to change a valve on the inside of the boat without hauling out.

You're welcome..........Like I say...10% is fine.
