Awe come on Kai!!

Your life is a compass, mate!!

One minute you're on one heading. The next you're on another?

Like with this watertight hatch thing? Before it was the trimaran? (Which is not finished yet!!)

(If ya look at it that way. We're all compasses?)

There a 32 Cardinal* Intercardinal Compass points. 360 degrees divided by 32 points = 11.25 degrees between “points”.

Thanks GORD. For some reason, I just couldn't remember that.
K, Many paths in life lead to the same destination. Each idea is a means to the same end. I could sell the ketch for $20000, or I could spend $5000 and sell it for $35000. What would you do?
The trimaran hull is now primed. Next weekend, the engine bed will be glassed in, and by next month, I will be swinging the new compass
