Alex' last comment is not entirely true -- all I came up with was reams of praise for his build.... :)

I might also add that his sloop Bucephalus, to which Foal is the tender, has a great pedigree. She is one of my all-time favourite boats. Alex can correct me here, but I believe she's a Herreshoff design, being 19' on deck and drawing 3'-3". I love her perfectly-balanced gaff rig. And she's also perfectly-named, as you'll remember that the original Bucephalus was the horse ridden by the first Alexander-the-Great.
