thank you. and that's just what I meant, and I had no idea it was all new. my goodness."Soft goods" Not sure what you mean. This particular boat has all new standing and running rigging and nearly all new sails, upwind inventory is new.
I suppose it's not exactly an epiphany. but it occurs to me that a sailboat is composed of both hardware and software. The software is the stuff you need to regularly upgrade.
