    I think this is hard to operate one handed.

    Dr. Bradfield is giving a talk at IBEX next week, session 903, "Developing Foils for Sailing Multihulls" which will be Thursday afternoon from 3:30 to 5:00 pm. That is one that I have marked to attend.

    I really enjoyed that article as well as the story on the back page by Val Jenkins about the early years of So Florida Sport Fishermen.

    Be sure and stop booth 1238 and say hello next week.

    Steve :cool:
