    Modern dinghy for Thursday night PHRF

    Thanks! So basically, it looks like the boat would not be the limiting factor, but rather my sailing. This is just a fun night after work with a bunch of decent but low key sailors.

    Modern dinghy for Thursday night PHRF

    5'8'', 190 lbs, $10k. The M14 or Aero are more plentiful and likely have a better resale value down the road. I have sailed both and like them. Not too sure where the Evo is heading.
  6. Even before social distancing, I was considering a single handed boat for low key Thursday night racing. Would a Melges 14 or Aero be competitive against a mixed fleet of Lightning, Flying Scott, Capri 25, Colgate 26, and S2 7.9 flying spinnakers? Perhaps an occasional Finn. In light air the keelboats tend to dominate the centerboard boats, but in 10-15, the Lightning is hard to beat. Courses are 2-3 miles, typical starting off a pier, 1/2 mile reach to turning mark, upwind 1 mile and return. Thoughts?

    Beneteau First 14

    I priced one in New Orleans last year, about $16k. My interest waned after that.

    Seascape D2 aka 14

    Anybody have first hand experience with the Beneteau First / Seascape 14? Beneteau dealer in New Orleans has one in stock I want to check out. A bit pricy though- $15.5k with three sails.

    do you think the melges 14 will catch on?

    It is still a cool boat.

    Harken 22mm traveler end control stop

    Yes, this is a good idea. Newer Harken end controls have a bumper, item 10, part number H-32054A in the manual: https://www.harken.com/uploadedFiles/Product_Support/PDF/4972.pdf Oddly, I can’t find this part either. Emailed Harken- will see.

    Harken 22mm traveler end control stop

    I thought of that. Will probably use 1/4 inch polyethylene board. Newer models have a different setup for the stop- two protruding cylinders where the screw holes are located.
  15. I need help finding a replacement piece for the stopper attached to the end control of a Harken 22mm small boat mainsheet traveler. The old piece pretty much disintegrated before I had a chance to take a picture of it in one piece. I can find the stopper piece that attaches to the car, but cant find the piece that attaches to the end control block. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
