Tempting

Wow. I visit here less often than I used to, and I haven't logged in since 12/9/10, and there have been 23,772 posts since then. Don't any of you have jobs?

I converted to power at the behest of my family, and I sold my sailboat in March of 2010 to a guy who raced it for one season and has now put it back up for sail. As I say, tempting...........

The the cost of fuel is climbing I would have stuck to the Sail boat

But you could think of this an opprotunity to acquire a more appropriate Sail boat for your needs....

With boat diesel now fully taxed for propulsion and heading for 1.50Euro a liter there is little temptation to take you to the side of the windless over here in the Rip off Republic.
Even saw a trawler owner trying to fit an old Genoa to a makeshift mast.
Safe sailing
