Just wanted to share with you some of the great fun our family had on Maui with your gear a couple of weeks ago. This is our daughter, Gracey, in her first sailing experience outside of the Columbia River Gorge.  We rented our gear from a fabulous shop near the airport.  Great folks.  We are multiyear owners/users of David Ezzy gear extending > 20 yrs.  I would estimate we have $10K worth of gear (old and used) in our garage.   We know how to rig the gear and we know what to expect from it.  It’s nirvana.

Thank you.

PS: image taken with $2.99 waterproof film camera purchased at K-Mart.

Found old, broken downhaul line on the beach and tied it around me neck.  A truly spendy set-up.  Very soon after this image was taken, a whale breeched just in front of us.  Amazing.
