SAIL: So that's what motivated you?
To do something for Boston, yes, and for the challenge of putting something together against what at the time seemed like pretty long odds. And my kids are also big fans of the race. My youngest son has a map of the race route on his wall, and he built a model of the Puma training boat in his fifth grade woodshop. The number of hours he’s spent racing a virtual boat around the world over the past few months is scary. .
