She was irreplaceable, we "world-wide" will never have such a stronger allied, so acquainted with politics on a world scale.  Blue collar raised, and she applied it towards her position, she did amazing things. She was not only part of history, she made history! No one will ever replace her, or her skill set.

Drill Baby Drill.........N.Dakota and Northern Territories into Canada

This is both good and bad. How I mean this is the first initial question, "why are American's, all of us, paying over $2.00 in fuel cost. We should be like the Arabic countries of which pay only mear .25 - .75 cents per gallon since it comes from their own lands. This means the Americans should have the same luxeries, and please correct me if I am wrong.

The other issue concern, drill baby drill mentality, are we going to have health and safety issues? They are looking at 48,000 wells…

Safety: Storm Orange Trysail ," New Topic" , just for discussion sake

If your caught in a storm, FYI, you may be lie - to a riding sail and a para - anchor. As other ships approach you will not be able to move quickly without slipping your drogue. Therefore, you adorn a "white" light upon your mast while your hanking your sails back on. Most of the time, a choice of sail is a trysail, the suggestion is that it is a storm orange. This may help for safety reasons of other vessels seeing you at a distance and have time to adjust their heading. The color white…

"Well at least you’ve narrowed it down to the Genoa. I doubt here’s any issue with the hull or running gear. Nor do I think the slight list you have will have an impact either as many boats have the same based on how full the water and or…"

"In the meanwhile, I performed some sailing tests trying to be as impartial as possible. I was sailing close hauled on the starboard and port side. I used the autopilot steering the boat at 37 degrees to the apparent wind. Apparent wind was 12 to 19…"

"Sounds like your rigging may be in need of tuning????? (Owned B43#19 for 10 years), Sailed from Mass to Tampa to Bahamas with it, great boat, no major issues at all. Boat has flat bottom basically so no need to put rails in water. I found it a very…"

"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck Mike"

"Our 43 had a shaft drive. Depending on how much water or fuel that was in her she would sometimes have a very small imbalance. Nothing that would cause her to sail unevenly. Do you have the problem on all points of sail? Is it more on any particular…"
