Hi, thanks for your friendly introduction. Much appreciated. My yachting and dinghy exerience is rather limited to being an occasional crew member; I am more inclined to be an admirer of the determined sailor and their vessel. I am interested in historical accounts of sailing and boat building as such. I shall pitch some questions soon. Kind regards.
