    NYYC Manhattan campus

    Stuffy bunch. I was a hit when we had the Farr 40 nationals at their Newport facility in my cut off t shirt, shorts and sandals. Wore a bandanna as well. I think they had a fire works show when we finally left in the boat

    Used sails

    Annapolis "Performance" Sailing - No More-ish!

    I just had a couple of halyards made up at Defender. They spliced the shackles in and I got it in a few days. They even advised me that I had to add some footage to the final order to cover the bury on the eye splice

    Pettit Black Widow Video Review

    I did contact a friend of mine who is a Pettit Rep. He did contact Pettit on this issue and when they tried to call him back numerous times, there was no response back from him

    Sticker placement on hull for slings

    Yard that installed my electronics put the thru hull for the knotmeter in line with the stickers. Broke the paddle wheel the first time the boat was hauled. Moved the stickers about 8”. Yup, Worked in a yard hauling for a couple of years. Not many Mensa candidates working in them, but this one is just common sense

    TV or Not, here we go again.

    Don't enjoy Larry and his foiling go-carts, that's not sailing but there is a great documentary on Ted Turner the year he won the cup. Close action, waves, and the mouth from the south made it fun.

    Pettit Black Widow Video Review

    I am not sure how the barnacles are clinging to this if it was burnished. The finished product is very slick to say the least

    no BIRW reports?

    Arabesque protesting a race committee over his PHRF rating? Race committee has nothing to do with it. He also bought the boat because of the rating. It is a one of and marched up and down the east coast prior to Bob buying it because of the rating. You got what you wanted bub

    Catalina 27

    Toddster, like what you've done with the galley. I've owned mine for 25+ years and she has been back and forth from CT to Fl 5 times. Great sailing boat and takes the seas well. Just scanned some of the comments. Dirty oar, the bulkheads look great. There is no issue with the deck, that is just the top frame for the bulkheads which you already know. The issues with the boat are they sometimes used gate valves on the thru hulls, change them. The rigging should be replaced at the deck level. The connection points are chrome plated steel and I had a few fail. The transom needs a backing plate, especially if you are using the swim ladder. I cut a piece of starboard and used big washers as backing plates. Other then that, enjoy the boat.
