A good move...someday the search function will work...I add tags which help some times

The archives on bottom of FP http://www.pressure-drop.us/forums/archive/index.php?f-31.html brings you to forums

Otherwise make sure it gets put in a category when put in front page!

Curious thing, the whole Rudolph thing. The North Pole is a flat, barren wasteland of ice and blowing snow, yet in the film there are conifers, mountains, even caves for the Abominable to dwell in.
I'm beginning to think this whole Rodolph / Santa dealio is a farce.

The flatness thing is camouflage, consider it a large stealth force field that allows light in,.... impenetrable otherwise. Simple really Santa technology is centuries ahead of ours. Explains everything.

Yeah, most of the scow racing is on lakes around the PNW, not nearly as large as the racing on the sound. More racing for the MCs than if I got the RS 100, plus more regattas to travel more. Had a Melges 24 back in Hawaii, but now looking at a 1 man dinghy to race for awhile before I decide to get another big boat, and an MC Scow with the large sail plan would be good for me (I'm 6'2" 245 lbs...played rugby a lot).

Looking forward to meeting some of you guys if I make it to some regattas up in the sound...if my work schedule allows it.
