Looks just like a Telefunken U-47. With leather.

What sailmaker brand best understands this vessle and could produce a fast set of sails for it?

That's incredible! It could very well be the future of yacht design. I bet it fares well in a heavy wind and sea state.

God, that brought back some painful memories. We damn near got killed that day!

Somewhere on I95 abeam of Daytona. Very bad day indeed. Guess in the days of internet, nothing ever disappears.

Travel safely, visiting wife's family?

Yes, wife's family. Plus it is my daughter's 14th birthday, so this will be the first time Nana and Grand Dad will get to celebrate her birthday with her. Grand Dad Herbie is making big plans so we will have to see just what The Maestro has up his sleeve..........

Just as an added bonus we are flying BA. Won't effect the fight out they but striking workers may alter our plans for the return trip.

One hell of an impressive tie-down job. Didn't move an inch on that trailer.

A guy I know who does a lot of racing says that what you need for it are something called "Evinrude" sails. He says that "Evinrude" sails point like no other. He must be right because he races a lot.

Based on my experience at other sites, the very best at designing fast sails for this boat is the Big Q. This is not to be confused with Big Blue, which is, according to the nabobs over there, beneath contempt. Not to speak of its inability to recognize a valuable advertising opportunity when it is presented to them.

Enjoy it. We're spending late April in Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris. Should be interesting.

not to mention the ability to throw an employee under the bus when they're not getting their way!
