    Chase boats - use your kill switches properly

    This is a good idea and used at our club too

    This one ...not quite as radical but an ultimate 30 all the same
  4. Great to be getting some “meat in the sandwhich” in this thread at last . The story is fleshing out somewhat and certain cryptic dots are aligning on the cryptogram . Still trying to work out who greasy Al is and why 8 hands has gone to multi hull thread to talk about winches

    Race to Alaska best boat

    I saw an 18” skiff with leopard brewery logos in the mid 90s...rotting away in a back yard in Devonport NZ (New Zealand) . It had a varnished ply transom with kitchen funnels on bungies to self drain the cockpit

    Mainsail area on a sporty

    Yep there is a point around 12-15 knots where it’s starting to be too much . There are two boats I race with that have large square tops for light days and moderate top for heavier days . The larger squaretops on those boats are about 1.6 metres from luff to leech I think and the smaller ones 900 mm . Boats are 7 metre and 6.5 metre Elliotts
