Re: dying slowly in a glass box

Hey Mr B, that sounds like a pretty awesome office, stage 2 or 3 methinks

for the first time since ~1990 i haven't a bike, i sold my last one, an SV1000 suzuki to help fund the first car i have owned since 1992, my recycling project i mentioned earlier ... not nearly as much fun but its low, light and can carry my 6 and 8 y.o. a lot easier.

laser 2 with a 470 main = tippy little boat

your boat sounds near exactly what i thought was a good design in the example i was thinking of 39' centre cockpit, although of course not necessarily that one, although i think it's well worth a look.
I like the Ferro Hartleys and providing there are no build issues, the design to me seems pretty sound and practical. Would be a good size boat for a family(who like each other and are not seeking a floating condo) to do some short term cruising in. Could be a bit of project boat, but it sounds like you don't mind getting your hands dirty.

When I got to the point that suicide sounded better than another day at work, I knew that something had to change. We sold our **** and split.
