  1. We were racing. The dodger makes it hard to communicate, but we would have been much drier.
  2. Hey there, yes HIGH NOTE, Baltic 51. 3 days with 25-30 over the deck. Spirit of Bermuda rally.
  3. On the way to Bermuda, it got a bit sporty...
  4. One really needs the good instruments that are calibrated to be able to say a wind change is a directional lift vs. just a velocity increase. One handles them differently.
  5. True wind data is the basis for using your polars. Proper positioning of the knot meter transducer on the midline is key. Calibration is key. It takes a lot of work.
  6. But I wouldn't throw her out of bed...
  7. It isn’t so cut and dry as you would make it seem. There is lots of evidence to the contrary. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/all-about-sex/201601/evidence-mounts-more-porn-less-sexual-assault
  8. IMHO, I don't really see the connection between a sexual assault/Rape which is an act of violence vs. a rated R picture of a woman. The woman who posed for a picture was presumably doing it by consent and may have profited from it as well. Is that degrading to all women? Some think so, but society says not. Guess what, sex sells. Liberty allows people to make certain choices of how they want to use their body. But to claim this leads to someone raping a woman is just daft and without any real proof of some connection. This sad incident needs to be thoroughly investigated and justice allowed to
  9. You clearly have proven no one should anchor in that cobblestone bed!
  10. You claimed childhood vaccines like mmr give permanent protection. They don’t necessarily. That has nothing to do with where I work.

    fuel transfer

    I have one of these battery operated fuel transfer pump. It has worked for 2 seasons so far. It is excellent. I was shocked actually! https://www.amazon.com/TERA-PUMP-Portable-Battery-AutoStop/dp/B00WZX9W86/ref=sr_1_6?crid=OF3MQIL5W510&dchild=1&keywords=battery+operated+fuel+transfer+pump&qid=1630339268&sprefix=battery+operated+fuel+%2Caps%2C161&sr=8-6
  12. This is the best book on sail trim I have ever read. Excellent pictures of what you sail should look like when shifting gears. https://www.amazon.com/Sailboat-Racing-Greg-Fisher-Hubbell/dp/0970357109/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_pdt_img_top?ie=UTF8
  13. Tetanus is fatal. Get a booster every 10 years. Period. Pertusis can still kill. Its the P in DPT. When the UK stopped giving it, they had a massive outbreak leading to the death of children.
  14. Your statement is factually incorrect. The MMR may not give immunity for life. I'm a physician and periodically need to have antibody titers checked to work in a hospital or surgical center.
