FurledSails  


 Choices in Electronics

"I remember the summer of '75 when we got the knotmeter--it was disappointing to discover how slow we were actually sailing: "Better get some new sails!" I remember the summer of '78 when we added the depth meter--we kept our eye's glue to it and panicked every time the depth began decreasing: "We're going to run aground!" The Radio Direction Finder was the final blow. Suddenly, it was always foggy when we went sailing and without it we would have been lost for sure. "Good thing we have the RDF!""
