What break Bob, you need no breaks, they are really great drawings. Its very nice that you still have them.
See, a door closes, another one always opens. From the school band you ended up doing something that you loved, drawing, and how from there everything ended up to be a domino effect.
Enjoyed reading your post.

No doors would be opening or closing in any yacht I designed.:)
WGEwald, so many meanings on that sentence. :) Maybe they are submarines. But hey, no doors means it can just capsize over and over and over. :) Roll it like a ball. Might be a safe design for me!
I don't get afraid of the sailboat heeling too much, on the contrary I get all excited about it actually, but the capsize thing does scare me (the lasers were easy to just get back on track).
I wonder how "easy" an unexperienced "sailor" can capsize a 29, or 30, or 32 foot sailboat.

Ok, I am officially proud of myself today, I wrote "boat heeling" and not "boat tilting". I am speaking boat language!

Paikea:
If you are talking about a "normal", ballasted 30' keel boat with reasonably healthy design characteristics it would take a real pro to "capsize " it in anything short of a full gale with breaking seas and too much sail up.

Tilting was OK.
Thank you Bob. Yes, I was talking about a normal 30' sailboat. That sure makes me feel better to hear that it would take a pro for that. :)

Btw, I just received your book today. I am very much looking forward to cuddle on the couch tonight with Jack (my little cookie dog) and enjoy it over a nice cup of tea. I was told that is a must read for anyone in the market to buy a sailboat.
