    Tanker hijack

    I know that for a while at least the port of Houston had a problem with ships coming in from Haiti and elsewhere, stowaways would jump off the ships and into the water. Then they would swim up the storm drains that emptied into the ship channel and exit onto the street. They had found stowaways with maps of the drainage sewers so they could find their way.

    AC 75 foils legal (shit)storm?

    what exactly are his damages though? This isnt a commercial product, so what he wants royalties for putting them on 7 boats?

    New sailor question

    My kids have been in youth sailing for a few years now and they love it. The kids are in a group, and there are coaches on the water with them so the drunks in jet skis usually stay away. I think the club closest to you that has a program is Dallas Corinthian YC which is on Lewisville Lake. Ft Worth Boat club has a bigger program, but is a lot further from your area.

    armchair Protest Com.

    it seems to me that if you are shortening the course at a mark, RC should (though it doesnt sound like they are required) set up the finish line along the normal route of the course. So, if the weather mark is normally left to stbd by the competetors, then the RC finish boat should set the finish line between the mark and the finish boat to the right of the weather mark. seems obvious but ive seen worse RC fuck-ups.

    Are all the fastest sails black now?

    all the guys with the means are buying new 3di raw which is only in solid black. They offer the cruising (UV resistant) 3Di in 3 colors, dark grey, light grey, or yellow but they're heavier because of the UV protection.

    yeah we're fine here in Texas, other than the swarms of Californians currently moving here which is annoying.
