So take a pagan tradition and convert it to fit your own cause. Change your "Holiest day of the year" , so the people your trying to rule and convert go along better. Exploit your following and hide behind a "Catholic dogma", then protect child molesters, as you fleece the comunity out of tax dollars .
Merry Christmas.

If you read anything about the more modern history of Christmas, you'll soon discover that the current traditions are a relative recent invention.

As little as 400 years ago, the church was attempting to eradicate the drunken, Saturnalian celebrations. In Colonial America, the Puritans of New England disapproved of Christmas. Celebration was outlawed in Boston from 1659 to 1681. Christmas fell out of favor in the United States after the American Revolution, when it was considered an English custom.

It was the German immigrants to the US and the 1843 publication of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" that are primarily responsible for the revival of Christmas and the traditions we have today.

There wasn't a Christmas tree at the White House until the late 1800's.

A sailor buddy has lost 3 wrist-band GPS units overboard. OOp!
Fragile bands, eh? There has to be a better way... fasten to boom?

Put a dab of Aqua-seal behind the band. Just keep it thin.

Looks like you can a whole kit with two types of helmet attachments and several other options as well here http://www.goprocamera.com/index8.htm

Krantz already says he's converting the F18 over to it. JW put it on his capricorn. I'd say it'll work great. Anything it better than the ridiculous sheeting angle that the crew has to deal with at the moment.

Don't worry dude, we'll get all the bugs out so you can copy it down the line wink

Are you sheeting from the tramp or the boom? Didn't you just order a new tramp, and if you did, did you make concessions to mount the block on the tramp? One more annoying question, are you going to use the cleat? I know that Goodall and JW did not use a cleat on the Capricorn, which eliminated the issues of cleating angles between the skipper and crew. . .

Todd,

Sheeing from the boom. The system will be able to either be sheeted from the boom or from the back where you normally sheet it.

And yes the cleat will be there.

I don't like the tramp sheeting. If you have fancy, low stretch line, you're going to lose all that when you attach it on a nice stretchy tramp.

I really want to sell my GoPro3 but am not sure what I want to get in return.
The new GoPro Wide or one of the new small HD (720p) cameras like the Flip MinoHD or the Kodak Zi6.
The Kodak has the best video quality but doesn't have a waterproof case.
Review of the Flip and Kodak.
Good thing about the GoPro units is that they can take a real beating ( Shot this a few days ago from the kite).

I've already got a Foretrex.... but i'm wondering what other GPS I should get... I honestly have no idea on the differences between the different models.
Anyone have any recommendations?

For a handheld, my GPSMAP 76 has worked very well. I bet its dirt cheap these days.

I also have a Map76 and have been very pleased. I don't use it on my cat but it has a lot of off shore miles in keel boats. It has been beaten, drowned, and severely neglected but it still works great.
