    Buying A New Sail

    Tri-Radial will keep its shape longer than a crosscut. So it might not have an advantage at first, in a few years it will be faster.

    Planned power outages this week?

    It was $2.39/gal this week where I usually fill up - and it's a top tier gas. In places like South Carolina it's usually even cheaper. Out here there isn't any 91 octane, just 93 octane that usually goes for around $0.60/gal more than regular. When I was out in Utah last week I could get 91 octane for as little as $0.20/gal more than regular. No car to my knowledge sold in the US in stock form requires more than 91 octane - 93 octane gas is just a way to soak the consumer.

    Lusting on Yachtworld

    I just ask myself if I could take that boat out by myself and singlehand it. If the answer is no, then for some reason the boat becomes significantly less attractive. Then I imagine myself doing boat maintenance on it. And finally, writing the checks.
  6. My old 1977 Suzuki GS 550 had the shim on top of the bucket. A simple tool depressed the bucket and the shim was easily removed. Slide in a different thickness shim and you're done - for that valve. And most shims didn't need changing.

    Coolboats to admire

    It has a self cleaning anchor. Useful where the anchorages have muddy bottoms.
