    Gunboat 68

    Saw yacht Condor at Newport Shipyard Nov. 2nd. Both hulls partially shrink wrapped. To protect?

    Most use the same software for making the sails, so the shapes are awfully similar. yeh right. ridiculous comment, Dave

    J/105 Companionway trim

    used aluminum on a J 22. 4 foot lengths lowes
  4. 32 ft. trimaran competing in a feeder race to Europe 1 STAR "A Busy Month For The U.S. Coast Guard's Vessel Rescue Net Work" Port hull forward cross member had snapped- 700 miles southeast of Nantucket-gale force winds, 20 ft. seas- mast blown down - hulls smashing together. Set series drogue and activated EPIRB - readied life raft and donned survival suit. Skipper David D.: "When something so out of control as this happens there isn't much else you can do other then having a good meal and listening to some Jimmy Buffet" which is what he did. A cargo ship was directed to him by a Coast Guard aircraft and he was picked up about 5 hours later and taken to Norway. Note that he reported no further damage to the boat after the drogue was deployed.

    Older / Smaller J Boats

    J27. Great. Buy one fairly cheap and resell for probably same price few years later. 18 knots daysailing w code zero . Planed at about 16 true wind speed w code zero. Code zero was nothing fancy for fabric, 1.5 oz nylon, but design was by one of the best, my friend Ralph S.

    Looks like sun rotted leech. Perhaps too much time uncovered on boom. Can see the red N is partially faded by uv. Unfortunately, fabric is probably weakened entire leech.

    Squeezing brass hanks closed

    Bainbridge is wholesale only. Plus that's the European site. Haven't seen sew on bronze hanks in years, except for a few old wood boats. Got some mixed in w a couple hundred pounds of hanks stripped off sails for furling conversion .
