    Or sinking because the keel fell off
  3. We hit 15 last night in ours. Reaching around having fun before the race. No wind instruments on the boat but the bridge nearby showed gusts to 19 when we were out there. good times, perfectly in control with the hull humming

    Spinnaker Pole- Bridle or No Bridle

    Center point is easier to stash on deck when you have to get the pole out of the way fast. No longer need the pit man to set the topper every launch either, just leave it preset. I.e. "lose the pole, free float, the kite and douse" You don't have to dump the topper to get the pole down, just trip it, unclip the center point, slide it back and slam it on the shroud. Pole stashed and clear. Topper and downfucker are preset for next launch.

    New Annapolis to Oxford Race 5.12.18

    The three lead boats, Jerebroham, Rival and Endo had not passed G7 and were having a good light air passing duel between .5 and 4 knots of boat speed when they called it a few hundred yards from the finish. A J-80 was in the vicinity, Flush Fund was a half mile back and Darkforce was smoking in on a private southerly puff getting ready to win the whole thing. Buddy was on Orion, their AIS was inadvertently sending a Pan Pan signal out and they had their radio turned down.

    New Annapolis to Oxford Race 5.12.18

    We were 1/2 mile from the line when they blew it off. Carkeek had just passed us back and were 100 yards closer, Farr 400 was just behind us. We were moving and Darkhorse was smoking in bringing the southerly to the fleet. A lot of hard light air work to just be blown off. We jumped on with the 111 to get in to Tred Avon and the race boat turned and burned. They rode home at 8 knots with the kite up. With that said, we grabbed the boat from tred and powered back. Met the race boat at the entrance to to Back Creek we just beat the strong storms in at 1930. I'm positive that other return crews got wet.

    Looks like it would go forwards or backwards just the same.

    Trying to Buy a Boat

    If owner is short on time he can hire an insured captain/ broker to handle the deal. It's on him. It's a J35, there are others.

  10. 4L80 started in 91. It's most likely at Turbo 400. Th400. No overdrive but pretty bulletproof

    VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    No earthly idea why anyone would be on deck in those conditions without a PLB and AIS transmitter strapped to their person.
