"Thanks, but 7.0 probably overlaps a little too much with my 6.7. I'll be keeping my eyes open in Hood River. Lots of used gear going on sale this time of year. Thanks for the reply. -Jim"

"How about some sailing tomorrow or Friday on the big lake? Can I get past the breaking waves from the leeward side of the jetty in Muskegon? What about sailing on Muskegon Lake if the shore break is too tough?"
