      In my initial inquiry I twice mentioned E-scows, because I have raced
      them. They are quite obviously slower if both boards are left down, no
      matter what point of sail, but especially to windward. Thanks to all
      who posted answers. The Bolgers may have tried to reply by fax ... I
      discovered after the fact that the printing cartridge in our machine
      needed replacing.

      To those who asked about photos: Yes, I have a few, but haven't posted
      any of our photos to a photo site. Will be happy to Email a couple of
      shots directly to those who asked; just need to figure out the system.
      I've lost the handle since we upgraded to the fast glass wire system.
      Or maybe it's just the cantankerous Mac with which I struggle.
