You're almost* absolutely right on every account. But the problem occurs all day, every day, almost every single post, and iW refuses to even try to fix it. Maybe if enough people bitch about it, they will solve it. And, yes, my patience and my time are worn to a raw, throbbing nub by:
• CONSTANT medically related urgencies and emergencies (e.g., being publicly libeled by my own incredibly incompetent hospital, bogus bills threatening legal action for thousands of dollars already paid).
• My even more overwhelmed wife having to drive me 350 miles (I'm too sleep-deprived to drive across town safely) for simple medical care my hospital should be able to provide in 10 minutes.
• 15-20 telephone scam calls every day that I have to answer because of the medical issues.
• Scores of email scams and spams every day even after my provider and local filters stop hundreds of them.

* I say "almost" because quite often, when I try to delete a duplicate post that's right in front of everyones's face, the response is some version of "You cannot delete a post that does not exist".

Thank GOD for my killfile. If I had to manually see and filter this forum's personal bullshit all day every day, I would have long ago abandoned this forum, and look how many people would be devastated by that (at least my sense of humor isn't dead). I at least have the option of penetrating the killfile if I suspect someone in it might have something useful to say this time.

WTH's an "invalid session", anyway? And why is iW's "Our servers cannot handle this request" a fairly reliable indication that they DID?

Coach G often deletes the duplicates, but I assume that's not his job as moderator, and it appears he's understandably tired of it, too.

SUBMIT.

And there ya go: "Invalid Session".

At least he is staying true to himself. It is always someone else's fault.

And here you go. Northwave

Plus, they'd build you a 1.5 or 1.7 custom if you call them.
They might build it with custom materials for land sailing if
you knew what you wanted. Could probably even get it
on a longer mast if custom built. It won't be cheap though.

p.s. it can get pretty windy around here.

Been land sailing using windsurf sails lately. My smallest sail is a 3.0m. It's absolutely lit in a strong wind.

I've seen some 1.5m and 2.5m sails. But they tend to use a little mast.

What is currently being produced that you have seen that is smaller then a 3.0m?
