    Favourite Boat pic?

    the R/W/B is a S5 1.5 oz, we wanted it to cut power for the higher end. It has very narrow shoulders.

    Are Mount Gay Rum Hats Cool?

    I am very proud of my red hats, all from my first big keel boat events. The first timers on the boat get red hat priority. Although I cannot wear mine as they are not allowed in Jr sailing here, promoting alcohol or some bullshit...

    How do you define bad crew?

    The crew who treats brand new sails terribly. Stuffs them down, steps on them, doesn’t put them away properly. Crew who doesn’t put the new rudder in the bag then drops it. Then there’s the crew who refuses to help do anything when asked.

    Parental Sailing Barrier

    That would be a solid plan, if I didn’t have a Hobie 33. I’m thinking the equivalent is splashing him with cold water and ripping $100 bills in half. Might not leave a good impression.

    Parental Sailing Barrier

    Sailing Anarchy, I come to you for help. I am looking for advise and photos to help explain sailing to my father. He has no background of boats period. Do I reaffirm the stereotypes? Do I bout about yacht club politics? Do I explain sea weed slows me down? Do I explain why I shouldn’t have lost that protest? Help!

    Tracking down Hobie 33's

    Attention owners, crew, anyone at all. I would like to get a gauge on who had/has what Hobie 33, with the intent of starting a hull directory. If you owned, sailed on, or sailed against a Hobie 33, could you share the boats information? A hull directory would let sailors track boats they have sailed on or find boats local to them. Specifically looking for-Hull Number, Serial Number, Boat Name, Sail Number, City, State, Country, and Yacht Club. Thanks!

    Totally lost...

    Hobie 33, yes yes yes i know its over 31 but its not as large as it feels. Can be trailer sailed and travel on the trailer anywhere. Fits a shoe string budget, ramp launch capable. Keel can retract and the mast can be raised and lowered easily as its a deck step. Boat is a wicked fast beer can as well as cruise friendly. No headroom is the downside. One in OKC for $9k. 31 ft or less (No, but close, feels smaller then 33) Budget: $15,000ish (+/-) (Yes) Location: WLIS (Hobie 33 will go there) Lively/fun sailor (able to beercan) (Yes, Like a dream) Solid, able to handle some light coastal ocean work (Yes, Like a dream) Simple systems & not a huge project (Yes) Some wishes: like the 80's model looks better than 70's, (1980s) would prefer more cockpit space than space below, (Big Yes) toilet not porta, (No) would prefer lighter displacement over heavy. (yes, is a ULDB) 8/10 My teacher said that is a good grade
