If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

So I guess your route had no bridges or overpasses along the way?

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

WOW!

You must have some kind of launch ramps in your area.

Isn't this the time to be putting the boat in the water??

LoL, you don't launch that boat...you pick it up and place it in the water. It's funny because I pulled my boat out of the water about a month and a half ago and am just now getting started working on it. I hope to have it done in the next two weeks or so, depending on the amount of time I can dedicate to it. Then she goes back in the water for some racing this summer! Yay!
