I''m sorry to read that your sails are not happy. I hope they will be someday soon.

If you''re old enough to recall the closing song of the Roy Rogers show, you should be able to figure out... "Happy sails to you."

With regard to a haystack floating for 20 years if coated with fiberglass - Well almost anything can be made to float (even lead) if worked on enough. The Hunter has not needed that much work to keep it afloat, so IMO it''s been a good boat.

Why do you end all of your posts with "Happy Sails", for your information my sails are not happy, they are folded up neatly in a sail bag. My sails are only happy when they are like you, filled with hot air!

It took you 42 minutes to repeat yourself ???

Maybe having a Benehuntilina isn''t so bad ?! So far, my Hunter seems to be holding up and performing well, dispite being almost 20 years old. Maybe one shouldn''t generalize ???

I thought he was referring to Benehuntalinas

I assume your opinion is motivated by the oil spill off the coast of Spain.

We can often prevent future mistakes from happening by analyzing past mistakes, laying the blame where it rightly belongs, and punishing the guilty party appropriately. Some people learn from their own mistakes and others learn from the example of others. Some never learn.
