    never fuckin' mind

    This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes. . . . . . . . I know what you're thinking, 'cause right now I'm thinking the same thing. Actually, I've been thinking it ever since I got here: Why oh why didn't I take the BLUE pill?

    I believe she was originally called "Slip Sliding Away" and, as correctly identified elsewhere in the thread, was a G&S one tonner from the lakes. The one-tonner SSA was a J/N, unless I am mistaken. The 35-footer was a G&S though. The one-ton SSA was a G&S. I spent one miserable summer on the boat. Almost every delivery was upwind with the #4 that year with an engine that needed air bled out of the system every hour…However I don't think that this boat was the old SSA as SSA had a grid track system for the genoas (unless the subsequent owner wised up a got rid of it….). Spit Fire, originally owned by Horst Queck currently sailed out of Waukegan YC by Jim Helquist. Won their sectioin in the 2000 Mac I believe.
