    Just got in from a grand afternoon's sailing my Neptune, I think that was the best she's ever performed...she did everything perfectly, no hiccups or glitches or anything.

    It was fun David...I haven't enjoyed a day's sub sailing like that for a while. It was one of those days when everything clicked into place and all went according to plan.

    Fingers crossed for another day like that on Sunday!
