"Any damn fool can navigate the world sober. It takes a really good sailor to do it drunk." - Sir Francis Chichester when asked why he carried so much alcohol on his solo sail around the world.

One Of My Favorite Pictures (It's the background if you haven't noticed)

I took this while racing single-handed on Lake Michigan. Look at the winch farm that I had on the cabin top. Now I have only two halyard winches instead of six. I didn't use roller furling then either. I'm probably going to ditch the furler, the boat was definitely faster with sails that were designed for the different wind strengths. I've also added a dodger which allows me to keep the main hatch open with spray and gives me a place to hide.
