FS: Long fins - 70cm deep tuttle

I've got two fins that need to find a home.
Deep tuttle
70cm Curtis/Starboard (iirc) carbon/G10 $50
70cm True Ames G10 $40

Powerbox
60cm (maybe 65 I need to check) G10 $40 Might be fun on an old raceboard if it doesn't rip the box out. Shok
Sold
I'll grab pics next time I'm up at Lanier.

You are missed at the Lake! There was discussion on when you will be sailing again. How is recovery going?

Thanks! Recovery going well - knocked out 20 miles on the Silver Comet yesterday on the bike - not speedy since I've been given a pretty low max heart rate at the moment. I'm hoping I'm allowed to up that soon. Probably still a few weeks away - I'm chomping at the bit but need to be realistic.

Bad news for everyone is that I'm on a pretty rigid diet which I'm actually not minding. My light air foiling will be improve by about 10% when I'm back. Biggrin

"Good morning Mr. Morales,
How does one go about making William's board about 10 lbs heavier without him noticing or would it be better to alter the pitch angle of his stabilizer in order to level the playing field?"

I'm going to be like a jockey. I'll have to wear a weight jacket as a handicap. I might even end up in the Randy weight class - well, no, but close.

Just got word - in two weeks, I'm unleashed.

Good to hear you are getting out of the No Fly Zone. I'm kind of interested in this seemingly tolerable diet plan. I'm assuming double bacon cheeseburgers, supersized chili-cheese fries and topped off with fried cherry pie, are not on it.

Fudge... at this rate, I'll never get rid of those fins. Biggrin

Crap, this next bit reads like one of those epistles some dude in the Pac NW is always writing but here goes in case anyone else is ever (and I dearly hope not) in my shoes/wet suit booties.

Randy, "whole food plant-based with no added oils (even nuts), sugars, salt". Rebranded vegan basically but the no oil thing makes it so that we don't find much even in vegetarian and vegan eateries to eat. Lisa and I joke that we are so far off the deep end that we've out-veganed most vegans. Sounds absolutely diabolical but we've found it quite easy to follow once you clean the house out of anything that might encourage you to backslide. Good news is we have to eat a lot to even maintain weight so we end up not feeling deprived. Spices, seasonings and lots of food combinations ("flavor") replace oils, salt and sugar so we enjoy the food we eat and don't wish we were eating something else.

About the only diet shown clinically to actually reverse cardiovascular disease instead of just try to slow or halt the progression. I have genetically high cholesterol so it's either this or wait for the next inevitable event in which case I might not be so lucky to be 20 minutes from a cath lab. I miss windsurfing a whole lot more than I miss a doughnut. Honestly, I would not have even considered something like this prior - I have had a 60 yr love affair with olive oil and cheese. Lisa had learned about this independently but our cardiologist (Emory guy) is an enthusiastic proponent of it and has had some remarkable results with his patients.

If anyone is remotely interested, watch "Game Changers" on Netflix.

Can never have too many fins.

Tough break about the olive oil. Beci worked for a cancer wellness program as a Chef Instructor for the past 10 years. Olive oil was one of the few oil's allowed for a cancel healthy diet. Vegan, gluten free, etc were also elements of that. Heart disease is a much different situation though.

I'm thinking I should try a glutton free diet.

I'm living proof that you can... (have too many fins). Too many of "this might come in handy some day" that I've had for almost 20 years. Tuttle box wave fin anyone?

Olive oil generally, I think in my completely unscientific opinion, is one of the better choices. I threw a bit of a tantrum worthy of a toddler when Lisa put that into the giveaway box. Nice meta research article on plant based diets for diabetes and cardiovascular health from NIH https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5466941/

btw, my fins are all gluten free.
