Look at some of the links behind my signature line and the book
kind regards,
Thanks John, Book ordered along with others, in the vioce of Roy scheinder "we're gonna need a bigger bookshelf". also a wealth of info behind your sig, cheers! I won't be asking about anchors (my uneducated theory is the biggest and best you can fit). As for cat v mono seems like the iphone v<insert telecommunications device> a pointless circular argument, I like em both any-ways

Aint that the truth, whether she's the guts to take you over the top or just shudder stall n drop a wing tip, same result altitude was my friend.

When I took a glider lesson some 45 years ago, the instructor seemed impressed, asking if I'd flown a glider before. No, but I'd done some sailing. So, it seems there is a lot of cross-over between flying and sailing, particularly in regards to "seat-of-the-pants" and tiller/stick sensations.
I had a similar thing, my instructor just wouldn't believe it was my first time, only thing I can think is that it was due to many hours on simulators.

The rest is getting out there and get the experience
Yep that's what I need, if life will stop getting in the way for a while I'm out there

$1,000 = 1 boat buck = 1 plane buck
Undoubtedly so, but imagine the size of plane id need to carry my home around.

Kind regards and fair winds

Re: Pedalo. No I wasn't joking. Didn't know what it was.

We colonists would call it a "paddle boat"

Go figure...

Oops really need to loose my blinkered UK syntax, yep that's what I meant, "paddle boat" makes more sense anyway
