I'm relieved: I almost spelled it "halliards" but switched at the last minute.

Thanks for refreshing my memory...


Just a slight (belated) digression. In my understanding, a rope is a rope until it's put to use or assigned a role--that's when it becomes a line. Some sailors don't consider it a rope once it's cut from the reel; others don't consider it a line until it is on a vessel. In other words, we can't really agree on this but as Sche sez, call it a line and you won't get any arguments. :-)

Thank you for posting so many pictures of Maine. I have not been there in years, and my last trip I was there with a friend I had now not seen in years. It is also nice to see the sailing boats on beautiful water, not like the Ohio River that I am stuck with for now in my life with my Lancer on confined water...
Thank you once again
