Like many others, I'm sure, I thoroughly enjoyed the original book. When I first stumbled on to "Handbook.." I had a Macgregor 26. After selling it, moved to WA state and bought the first Compac 16 I could find; your book provided the influence.
Now I have a 19 and a 23. See what you did?? <grin>
So, you have another "fanboy" - I'm buying it now!
