Thanks Ann but the real hats off is SkipperJohn - I always defer to him on all things dinghy - He's always proven himself expert in all dinghy discussions.

I usually bodge a guestimate, hope I'm right and wait for SJ to correct me if necessary.

I am also a bit of a lurker for threads that are not getting much action. We are a great community but sometimes a post goes up and no gives any kind of guess for a day or so. these posters must feel unloved so...

I will usually jump in, say something stupid, knowing a smart guy will jump in and correct me -

Geez, now I'm blushing. Don't be so modest Ex-Calif. You've given a bunch of good advice here and Ann is just trying to give you a deserved compliment.

I'll admit to being a bit dinghy.
