To Joe and co-early Rhodies, of course the Rhodes was not made in a 
day.   However, if I have really reached 90, then it has been a long 
time since the diamond board direct pull has been standard. Other than 
for a poor dead eel, to my knowledge no other diamond board pennant snag 
has been sighted.

New Rhodes anyone?  How long do you founding buyers expect me to wait.

I want to take it all apart after the season, and I realized that in order to gain access to the blocks beneath the companionway step, I need to remove the entire setee.  The lazy fixer in me says that I should be able to make a cut that makes it easy to remove only the step portion to get to the enclosure for the blocks which is on the keel line.  Can I do this?  I have fished the list without success.  I can't believe that Stan would not have made this access easier... unless there were a reason not to do so.  Tell me what I don't know.

There is also a school of thought that  says, "you don't need the block & tackle, as the center board is only seventy pounds." WHAT ABOUT THAT?  Thanks y'all.
