    Ditch the rig

    Might consider spray chines.

    Where to move?

    Though I have never lived there I think that N Fla, both coasts, has affordable sailing. East coast would make for easy Bahamas training before going further. Downside is hurricane exposure and the summers. And the Floridians.
  3. With swept spreaders the main only goes out so far. Cold water.

    If you self quarantine for 3 months on a boat I suspect that would suffice.

    Though I don't like polyurethane foam much supposedly the higher densities are ok, it is easier to shape usually. Glass panels flex.

    Misunderestimated is how good a good hand layup is by a good experienced glasser, of whom there are fewer each year.

    There isn't much difference with sandwich, tends to have thinner skins, but monolithic I wouldn't be surprised to see 10% or more compaction. Depending on how much mat is used.

    While you're at it might consider putting in wider bulkheads to increase volume.

    Connect Low Friction Ring to boom

    Is that a Waterrat? Looks good, agree that I'd go with a lashing but your way is also good. Oversized rings are smart. As much as I like climbers webbing I'm always nervous about webbing in uv long term but in your neck of the woods probably no big deal.

    One thing that I've wondered about is if, as open molding fades away, there is a change in strength due to compaction, if a well glassed part is slightly thicker than a bagged part.

    Infused parts typically are lighter than not terribly precise wet preg but bagging can make up for that. Due to the resin channels its usually heavier than prepreg. CP.
