    Doug,
    Thanks for that.
    Have never meet a boat I didn’t like, some may have some bad habits though!
    We use to pitch pole a 16’ Hobby cat for fun.
    I have 3 sunfish that my nephews and their offspring are having much fun with, well it may be hard to tell who is having the most fun.
    Sold the 18’ Prindle she was getting to old for that. Trapped out, hanging on with your toes, while flying a hull with a mate is much fun. Our son was mad about selling he off, but he will be bearboating in BVI for his honeymoon.
    Teaching is the best for me but I still love going out alone with some thick air a thin hull on warm water and losing to the wind, some of my best memories and my wife can always tell when I come home.

    Mine as well! He inspired me to build a hiking bench which I used for years. I tried to make his approach to racing work for me and I think it did.
