    Or, look upon it as a physical experiment to impress the lesson of how a relatively minor mass can have a profound effect on initial stability when the mass is located a significant distance from the hull metacentre...

    Last time I was up the rig was Musket cove in Fiji, doing the check before heading home. Thats the place you'll be visiting when you deliver the Woollacott back to Enzed, Ted.

    i am a big fan of yours, follow your posts and love the photographs. That would be something special on her. It's one of those sooner than later things I really must do. Climbing up a mast is a trifle matter than sailing 6 to 9 months to get to you all.
