Trying to spread doubt if some of...

What an objectionable little man - He originally attacked Bob's wife, and the counter-reaction from Bob was relatively composed given the circumstances IMO.

Love Harken gear, but the Andersen winches are just the best.

It doesn't work like that BS - You can (or should be able to) back up your claims with evidence, we are asking for that evidence to be able to verify your claims. We actually have been for a looooong...

Re: Pros and cons for a double ender/Canoe Stern
