sharps, you're doing fine. keep asking questions, you haven't asked a dumb one yet. The only way to learn is to ask about what you don't know, and seek confirmation that what you think you know is actually what you really know, know what I mean?

Lostatsi—

You'd be better off starting your own thread and posting what information about what kind of boat and what kind of sailing you're looking to do there rather than hijacking sharp's thread.

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.
