Also any other comments (where to stay, conditions, anything else useful)? ...

No, I didn't. It is not available in the android store, but the android version was supposedly released in October, 2011, and there are other sites that have links offering it.

I am suspicious of ...

It took me forever to get my first jibe, and I'm still not all that good at it.

The good thing about being a crappy jiber is that it feels so GOOD when you make it around! You feel like Mr. Cool ...

They can tell me the temperature on a planet 28,00 ...

A follow-up on this....

I purchased a Chinook Pro1 Alloy boom new and am very happy with it. It rigs easily, is quite stiff, will handle pretty much all of my sails, and I am making more of my jib ...

Thanks, Mike! The fact that you use an alloy boom says something. Do you think the Chinook Pro1 alloy is much superior to the triple clamp, and worth the extra $50 or so?
