    The new Jeanneau Riviera, sick. Some say they're a bit of a brick in the water but the accomodations make up for it.

    It says Islander 30 in the ad. From the pics and price, I'd consider buying it. Must have been looking for the other Craigslist thread.

    The great thing about converting to two backstays is that you only need half as many attachment points. Brilliant really.

    We have one similar to that which is great at anchor. We either hang it from the jib halyard also attached to the forestay to center it in foretriangle, or hang it off the boom. When in the foretriangle if you get a good set of waves you get to fly over the edges like a pendulum, pretty fun. When out from the boom, you keep it on a clutch and winch and you can just release and dunk someone, then bring them back up. Good times.

    "Catalina 30...one of the best racer / cruisers available" https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/boa/6051121400.html I will say that I have nothing against Catalinas as I have one, but I've never seen a statement like the one above or a C30 fitted out for racing like this one has.

    ... and it's floating around hitting other people's boats now. Even though the guy knows its loose.

    You could always find a balance between small enough to toss in the pond and large enough to cross an ocean... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lReTd6V33MM .. But seriously, i've wanted to get into RC sailboats for awhile. I think it would be awesome to hook up a live feed from the stern with a fish-eye shot showing the trim and surrounding and a super long range remote-thingy.

    Had some strong winds for the past day here and I found a similar scenario on may way into work this morning. This is on Weems Creek where if you recall, we had the recent Ranger 28 sinking as well as plenty of other strong candidates. This Columbia 26 is one of many that go out there to slowly perish. Not sure of the bottom state there, but I believe there is rip-rap for the bridge, just not sure how far it goes and if the keel is banging around there.
