Dull lengthy video of a Macgregor 25 crossing 25 miles of flat water - hardly an epic. Joel is the 'head mammal' at oceanmammals.net

While technically this post is spam it is obviously well-meant - but Joel, BlueMoment recommends getting yourselves a more seaworthy vessel than the Macgregor . . .

Strange to have new posters apparently from Oz and the US at the same time . . .

Bluemoment would also like to suggest having a professional cast his eye over the rig since the leeward spreader seems to be flapping about in what appears to be only a gentle breeze at 7'50" into the second video.
