Re: Rate That Boat

BTW Ben, had a good friend die in his sleep two weeks ago. My same age. I clearly see where you are coming from.

Depends on where you want to go, how long you want to take to get there, how much work your doctor can do on you, and how long you want to use that body

My vote would be...start with the bagel, toasted...plenty of butter, egg, bacon and cheese.
Followed by oatmeal with applesauce or fresh fruit.
Forget the PB+J...that's for kids.
Lunch...just fresh fruit.

Agree. And of note, upon reading Ben's initial post, I did understand it to be a result of a great deal of personal and varied sailing experience.
