    American Legion YC, Newport Harbor Feud

    republican doesnt always translate to trump supporter - just something you, sunseeker, should consider before your statement directed at Balboa YC. lots of limousine liberals in this part of town as well. take it to PA.

    Protest at Langkawi Race Week

    Taking a leak off the boat is not an offense subject to tossing the boat for the race. roll eyes....

    Pukers United – For those that have

    I puked once when my daughter ate a bag of cheetos and left an orange rainbow on the leeward side of the boat.

    Harbor 20 Championship

    There is Harbor 20 racing here in Newport on every weekend, and during the week. This class is racing constantly and that is success. I hope to try it sometime for the OD nature of the racing and competive nature of the class. Anyone bashing NHYC is just jealous. And predicted log racing in a Duffy is funny and I hope it happens.

    Performance boat as a family daysailer

    Easy to do as long as everyone is on board. we had a Farr 30 and it was perfect and fun. Took it to the Island, overnight in the turning basin kinda camping. Now do the same thing (sorta) with the Platu 25. If I had the $$ I would do the 1d35. Lots of fun. Cheers!

    Platu 25 - New Rig Ideas

    we sail a lot. the boat has a bow sprit and we use both asym and sym kites. for a little boat its a lot of fun and costs are reasonable. putting a carbon rig in it would add zero value but still a fun concept to consider. I saw the old Peerless Melges 30 for sale on yachtworld and think that would be a better use of the funds to be honest. so many options....

    Platu 25 - New Rig Ideas

    No doubt the 830 rig is bigger - and would need to be modified to make it work - thats the dilema. I was hoping to find an extra rig in some yard that is taking up space that might work. Checking out a visting V830 over the weekend with the double spreader masthead configuration was the reason for the comment - not necessarily the dimensions. This concept is cost prohibitive - but its fun to dream.
  10. Our Platu 25 is a fun little boat - but I have been thinking about making some changes. A masthead kite is on the list - and a carbon rig. A used rig like a viper 830 might work. Any ideas on locating a rig that would work without breaking the bank? New just doesn't seem reasonable from a cost perspective. The idea is intriguing - just exploring options and ideas. Cheers!

    Trouble finding good daysailer options

    some models of the columbia 30 had a wheel but are fairly spartan below - the boat is not a cruiser per se - and has a decent size cockpit.

    Olivia -- Hawaiian Tropical WX 2018 part deux

    What will Kauai be like starting on this saturday? Will the effects of the remnant storm be for the typical vacation experience? Excessive rain should be gone by then and weather should be typically Hawaiian? Real responses and typical anarchy smartass responses appreciated.

    SoCal PHRF Corinthian rating

    I agree that we should foster participation and this concept hopefully gets more boats on the line. However - when you have a boat that has no changes to its configuration and has been rated based on observed performance for years - changing its rating based on this calculation is not in the best interest of the fleet. I spoke with a PHRF volunteer today and apparently this abuse of the system has been noted and changes are coming in November. Until then I will have a beer with my competitor and wish him a good sail. Cheers!
