    Aluminum L extrusion is a lot cheaper...
  2. Did you mount it above your heeled waterline?

    Gluing batten to Tape Drive Sail...

    Dr Sails. I have no first hand experience but I have heard good things.

    Evolution Sails (Canada)

    I know the boat! I look forward to putting a face to the name when counter regattas can happen again. I messaged John on Facebook, will keep you posted. I’m leaning heavily towards KSL. John Clark seems like a stand up guy and a lot of fast boats with his sails.

    That would be nice. I think he had some health issues... I tried emailing him but his evolution address is shutdown. Maybe I will try Facebook. I really liked his sails and I feel like I finally found how to get the best performance out of them. Any experience with KSL?

    Specifically the Toronto loft, what gives? I know they went under have since reopened. Trying to purchase Shark one design sails that used to be made in house and designed by John Dakin in Toronto. Now I heard rumours that everything is being made in NZ. Tried the local sister loft in Montreal and they don’t want to take my money... Anybody have any suggestions or connections before I jump to another sail maker?

    Eliminating thru hulls about the water line

    Andy has the right idea. if you’re not up for it, hiring a pro to do the gel coat work should leave you with a much prettier boost than something with plugs installed in her side.

    Weather resistant masking tape

    Couple weeks, nothing that I know of. We just switched from 3M blue to green (I can get you the model # tomorrow) which is good for a little over a week in the summer sun and rain.

    I hate to be that guy... but maybe treat your crew to some PPE?

    Air conditioning

    I’ve installed a few Dometic Turbo self contained units in customer’s boats. Very easy install and the customers were happy very happy with them.

    Connect Low Friction Ring to boom

    Soft shackle and whip it tight to the LFR

    Lightning strike

    What foolish adjuster didn’t write this boat off?
  14. I like a light grey with a punchy stripe colour
  15. Knowing the make of the boat might help us advise you on whether it’s worth the work. If it’s an Irwin, then walk away.
