  1. Need a part for the Fareast 28R and they never returned calls. Website appears to be down and phones have robo voice straight to voicemail. Anyone have the scoop? They fucked up the install on our spin pole and now I have to unfuck it. Anyone know where else to get parts, looking for the Delrin insert for the end of the spin pole launch tube.

    70k is cheap for a fly in, fly out program. I thought it was pretty cool, had it on in the garage while working on the Jeep. Well done

    Don't know any other mid sized Keelboat with a crew of 7-8 that can pull 23 boats in the US right now. Kinda lame to throw shit before it even goes down. I'd be there if these boats didn't have stupid weight limits...
  4. They'll end up in the great lakes. more fun to be had

    BAhahaha. Come on up and sail a Tuesday with us on the Fareast! Nobody even bats an eye when we use a shotgun cannon for the finish. Just let me know so I can save you a spot to park inside the fence. And don't worry, the marina manager has a big boxer who chases all the rats away from the yard (I'm not joking, he does a great job!). Catches a few every day.

    Seems like a lot of people I know from Newport, RI think they're better than everyone else because they are from Newport. Sailing doesn't Start getting warm there until May and it's generally cold in early October. Annapolis gets a longer season but it's all inshore sailing with it's challenges but usually breeze fills in and a decent day is had. Also, Annapolis people are cliquey and it's a small town where everyone's in ya business. Hampton Roads has great sailing and you can be on the water every night of the week, There's usually good breeze, good racing and good programs. Hampton is pretty much the base of operations and the area there is cool but as Doghouse said, isn't a great place to find a normal priced house in a good area. Charleston. Current, all day, all night. Powerboat, restaurant and sandbar scene are pretty top notch. West coast, Newport beach, San Diego, Long beach area has warm weather, high taxes, women and wind. Tons of boats and great clubs. Same cliquey stuff and not as much of a superiority complex. high $$ though. For what it's worth, warmth is key, fuck cold weather sailing, I don't care how many people say its great, it friggen sucks..
  8. 3AM on a Cal 39 surfing waves on the delivery home, watching the speedo creep up into the teens, it was like riding a roller coaster. Went down below to make some coffee and was fallowed by a wall of water down the companionway. Heard the owner laughing a big deep belly laugh and looked up to him standing at the helm looking like a drowned rat with water up to his knees and the lazarette in the cockpit. Asked him if he was good, and he replied "I've been hearing voices anyway and then something tapped me on the shoulder, and then I was all wet, yep, i'm good, but I'm all wet." Doing 18-25 knots on the Farr 400 down the Chesapeake for 8 hours, specifically the last 10 miles of blast reaching with three of us huddled together on the rail, hoods pulled over our eyes laughing our asses off getting firehosed but hauling ass and knowing we would get in before dinner service was over. The first time I ever felt a keelboat start planing. Losing instruments and navigating by compass and lightning strikes on a night delivery. Pulling into Newport at sunrise. Too many to share...

    What's a Kirby 25?

    My Buddy and his dad had one. They had a blast with it. He used to singlehand it with a kite and whip ass. Would bungee cord the tiller straight DDW, walk forward on the leeward side, break the pole, walk to the windward side, heal the boat, kite and main would gybe, make the pole and run back to tiller. A LOT of fun time on that little thing.
