    Cool boat. I admire it. It could be painted. Would fit my dream cruiser requirements also.

    I just recently axed our NYT subscription - it just got too expensive: $77/mo. or almost a thousand bucks/yr. So, what is your favorite news source that comes in under that?

    Sure, OK with me. I sail for the fun of sailing.(Except the depth sounder, I want to avoid finding the bottom.) Curiously I miss all the chart work that went with a tricky race.
