Definitely one of the best ways to learn. Thanks, dude.

Now I just want to see a SailingDog video on how to respond to so many freakin' sailing/electronics/gear/seamanship/plumbing/mechanical/political/nuclear-physics/feminine-hygiene questions with actually useful info. There has to be some kind of trick.

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.

Hell, I'm the first one to admit I know more about women and female hygiene than I do about nuclear physics. Women are far more interesting than splitting atoms... Far safer in some ways too...but not always.

Giu, thanks for the new lessons.

You make it look so easy.
I'm still a little intimidated by the spinnaker. I will need to get out with an experienced sailor before I try it alone, or with my equally inexperienced crew.

Great videos Giu. Just went through them all.

Now all I need is a backstay adjustment system, boom vang, cunningham, and a modification to the outhaul to bring it to the cockpit instead of adjusting it on the boom. I guess there is always something new to do.

I thought my boat was just a heavy tank, and that was why I always get passed, but I guess I need some better sail control features added to help it along. Or maybe it is just too heavy and that is why she doesn't have them now.
