    Jack, a handsome man, walked into a sports bar around 9:58 pm. He sat down next to this blonde at the bar and stared up at the TV as the 10:00 news came on. The news crew was covering a story of a man on a ledge of a large building preparing to jump. The blonde looked at Jack and said, "Do you think he'll jump?" Jack says, "You know what, I bet he will." The blonde replied, "Well, I bet he won't." Jack placed $30 on the bar and said, "You're on!" Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy did a swan dive off of the building, falling to his death. The blonde was very upset and handed her $30 to Jack, saying, "Fair's fair... Here's your money." Jack replied, "I can't take your money, I saw this earlier on the 5 o'clock news and knew he would jump." The blonde replies, "I did too; but I didn't think he'd do it again." Jack took the money.

    How many lines are on your boat?

    She’s an interesting one. A Russian billionaire arrived in nz and spent up large including having this dragon built in 2008 in the Ukraine. His money dried up and the boat was passed around various team nz associates and eventually to a friend of mine that was owed money. I bought it from him 2 years ago for a tenth of what it cost. Until then it had been sailed only three times. They tried to make others Edition Vintage Dragon.pdf

    Etchells or Star for single handed cruising?

    I singlehanded cruise my Dragon most weeks. Mainly daysails. I fitted an outboard, mainly to get out of the river where I keep it, and an autohelm for manoeuvres. I absolutely love it.
