Go the Crazy Bolshevik! Damn the haters, full speed ahead... at least until you go back the way you came as only a proa can. Can't wait for a proa to complete EC or even R2AK, dare to dream.
Really appreciate you showing up for the first Okoumefest and running the CP. We anchored near you after midnight, and left soon after dawn on a very slow circumnav of the Wye River... the next year was much quicker. Hope the best of yesterday becomes the worst of tomorrow. A couple of boat bucks in your kitty from Badger and Corsair, along with best wishes.
Skol: way to reevaluate, and I purchased plans for the Strike before starting on Gary D's Va'a motu. Mr Woods is a class act, and his designs make a great deal of sense. He is a great resource and was quick to reply to questions. Couldn't do better for a starting point. Good luck with your project!
ZTH: I respect your tribal instincts and second your voice of appealing for the best/chastising the jerks. Nice job with your Challenges. Hope we meet at Ft Desoto some March.
