  1. For those of us who can't make tonight's Hustler event at CIYC, I wonder what subjects will be discussed at the seminar?
  2. Say its not so... "Racing with Hustler", Social hour and Seminar at 6pm tonight at City Island YC. http://sailing.meetup.com/68/calendar/12612052/?a=facebook
  3. God forbid! I wouldn't wish this misery on Hack! (or JT, AG, Anonymous Guest etc etc.) Yes you would in hopes that they would retain you. you have a point Espo--but then again--if Hack slips an falls on ice he will simply fall into his backyard and drown. Hack has a pool in his backyard? Running and ducking His backyard could be considered a pool--a very large one More like a tidal cess pool.
  4. Hustler is Definitely NOT kosher, we don't even let those kinds sail aboard her I have heard from some reliable sources that a few of "those kind" have sailed on Hustler.
  5. Maybe the perf issue is due to Hustler not being a totally "kosher" J/29? I vaguely remember a specific J/35 that caused a stir years ago when it too always won. There were things that were done to that boat that made it wicked fast.
  6. The rest of the fleet should pull their head out of their ass and sail better. The J/29, all over the country, has had roughly the same rating since it was built. Hustler is a well sailed, well prepared boat with new sails. Most of the fleet they sail against are shitboxes with ragged out sails and dirty bottoms. So now it's acceptable to hit someone's rating who has an established design, just because the rest of the fleet they're in won't get off their ass and prepare their boats and learn how to do this sport they supposedly love so much? No wonder PHRF is dying. They'll probably want Hustler to drag a bucket next. You Hustler boys really need to get back into a one design fleet- this type of thing is really silly. While the J/29 basically rates the same all over the country, you have to remember the P in PHRF stands for performance and local committees have at times shown flexibility to re-rate a boat that is too dominant.
  7. I heard a rumor that the LIS PHRF committee is considering dropping the J/29's rating to 99 to make the rest of the fleet more competitive. That makes sense, but is it fair or a slap in the face to Espo? Thoughts or comments?
  8. but I'm smart enough to rent them--never buy!! I thought you bought a pair a long time ago? No? Ya know, Tiger Woods should have rented. Given the lost endorsements dough, he should have rented as he could have had the best poontang money can buy. And without the aggravation. I hope he learned his lesson. bought a (very small) pair years ago---I traded them in 11 years ago--only cost me a house and 100k--learned my lesson Never buy--always rent. remember--you don't pay a hooker to blow you--you pay her to LEAVE after she's done! What about paying her so YOU can leave when you're done? I assume that works just as well.

  10. Buh-ring it Gramps! Wow... If we're lucky there will be two less posters on SA. Both of you are two of the most pathetic sock puppets on SA. You all need to get a life!!
  11. already in the works If you need a witness, I'm available, credible, and VERY reasonable: www.needawitness.org
  12. That's our new .6 kite--never been out of the bag--but I can tell you, it was very comfortable Sat. night. That very expensive footbag is awfully close to the fireplace. I hope no embers made their way near it, but I see you have a cup of water nearby just in case.
  13. How the hell are you getting there? I didn't think you could drive with your broken foot.
  14. No! He doesn't know me too well. Just as long as you keep me out of jail. AGAIN! I'll do my best If I let the cops Knuckle me up, can you get me some money for police brutality?? I'm not sure you wanna go there. BUT I heard that Bernie Madoff got knuckled up pretty good in jail and might need a good lawyer. Oh wait, he has no money!
  15. exactly! In other words SHOW ME THE MONEY! (quoting Al Sharpton) Its not a Rev. Al quote. No shit Sherlock! It is ,however, a phrase he is intimately familar with. Easy there counselor, its not like I was the one who pushed you down on the ice. I was just making a clarification.
