Bill, I certainly agree with all you say of JB's charms, esp. her remarkable
stability. I'm amazed I found grounds for criticizing her at all, given how
often I've raved about her on this list over the years. But she is a bit of
a "drag" behind a Micro. However, she gets the two of us, our dog and all
our gear for a week's worth of cruising out to the mooring in one trip, and
we still love her dearly. I'm sure the Auray punt will be a better towing
tender, but I know we'll miss JB's capacity, stability, and sail-ability.
