    Well having just watched this FG/Macif RTW tube, I think maybe he did make a deal with Posseidon.... I mean htf does he not sleep and yet always look so wide awake and "ready for his closeup" while still ripping allong at 30/40 knots ???

    Well this just popped up on my FB, nice bit about taking Jimmy spithill out for a ride on Macif. I know AT said he doesn't want one but damn after watching this I wonder who could say no.

    Just regular old curiosity, no vested interest, no axe to grind. How about you?

    Hey I am a consumer and I am also very interested in the numbers behind these campaigns. If the sponsors want to keep it quiet that's fine but not sure why you are getting on the case of us who want to know / speculate how much.

    Lightning protection or no?

    Local church appears to have a lightning rod on top of a cross. Pretty sure they have never been hit, so I guess that must be the way to go

    Trouble finding good daysailer options

    on reflection, maybe i undersold the brenta. maybe should have tried along the lines of: I found just the boat for a man of your obvious taste, I can have you sailing this beauty by the weekend, but we'll need to move fast these don't stay on the market long. why don't I get you a drink while I run some numbers with the finance chaps. This will be a much better investment than an old J105, but I don't need to tell you that .....
