    You'll probably be splashing the Caravelle right as I'm finishing up the RoG. Good. We can come up with some Bay/Delta RAID. TISC wouldn't even put...

    BTW, you'll never see Alpha in an SSS event. She's an open-cockpit boat with no internal flotation. I'm not taking her out in the Central Bay on a...

    Tomorrow I rig up the mainsheet, and put some cleats in, to tie off the jib sheet twings. The twings lead to convenient spots below decks. Finally,...

    Yes, though the system needs some re-thinking. The lines and blocks that were on it were 1960's vintage, so they're now gone. The "tail"...the part...

    Alan:

    I have enjoyed your contributions to the SSS forum. My prior boat was an S2 8.6 so I'm watching your prep with interest. Reach me a lee dot johnson at q dot com if you want to talk S2s.

    Alan, I believe it was you who wrote a great piece on the definition of Skein on the Petit Bateau website a few years ago.

    I'm writing a book on tips for singlehanded sailing. I'm going to put the book up on the web for anyone to download at no cost. With your permission, I'd love to include this piece. I pulled it off the site.

    Please e-mail me back at foolishmuse@aol.com

    Thanks
    Andy
