    Saw your post yesterday about boat design. I agree, as an aeronautical engineer and airplane builder, a change of one thing leads to a cascade of other changes.

    I note with some amusement, I figure you live in Reno and sail from Bodega Bay! When I retired from the Army I was about to move to Reno, but ended up in West Virginia, and I sail out of Norfolk VA.

    Getting things done on the boat while 300 miles away is a challenge. Lots of weekend trips as I am not fully retired yet!

    I used to live in Carmel Ca, and my second favorite California County was Sonoma. Some day maybe I will once again return to Sonoma.
