Re: Yacht capsizes on launch

They should get their money back if that monstrosity DIDN'T capsize. It was obvously designed to turn turtle on contact. Egads, that thing is ugly. Maybe it wouldn't need fin stabs if it wasn't a...

Re: Robert Redford, Sailor

Re: Living in Florida

Glenn, whatever you do- please come back here when you release a new book. I really enjoyed this one and I'm a fan.
