      I doubt Boaters' World has any sailboat gear at all.

Thought it looked funny....read them all, it was good advice.(I was going to start a whole rip about how your future bigger boat, the one you can drive a segway on, could use his as a dinghy)

One of the nice things about my job is I get to poke around a lot of boat yards.Two different "Boaters World" stores are going out of business and selling out to the walls, they're at 20/30% off right now and will keep discounting till every thing is gone. All in all not a bad day...
