Hey puddinlegs...give me steep and deep and you can't slap the smile off this face
as for hucking cliffs well afraid I'm gettin a little old for that, a few decades ago different story
. Not too long in the tooth to huck a good handle though.
I can see where your idea would work well as a 10" speedgrip seems a bit overkill for the task.
Your premise about personality type is well taken and understood. Even still if I, or anyone else for that matter, am already performing a task to the best of my ability one would think even a Type-A would learn over time that additional high decibel input at that moment isn't going to noticeably improve results.
In more cases than not, as in this one, it tends to have the reverse effect. That being said of course from the perspective of some one who owns an old ODay 30 as opposed to a newer B 40.7.
As for being invited back, it was known that I was already committed for the
following day and being we reside in different countries, the skips perspective will be a bit more difficult to ascertain. He was however quite gracious in his response to my offer to replace/reimburse in which he declined.
GeorgeB, with regards to the 40.7 it really sailed well and was surprisingly less complicated to lend a hand on then I was expecting. Everything was laid out well and most tasks could be accomplished with relative ease even for a newbie. Below decks was very nice for a "racer".
Any way thanks all for the feedback, it was an interesting exercise as the responses both in this forum as well as here locally seemed to be split right down the middle.
