    Anyone have a stock rudder and cassette they would unload for a FT10?

    I wish it would have taken off it’s a great boat! I did ask Tom at Flying Tiger Boats about what a new build costs these days (about 90k to get it to the US) if I remember right. I was just wondering when I was looking into buying one. I have hull #26 currently.

    I believe they still race OD in Cali, and the last hull #118 was delivered in August of 2015 as far as I know.

    Has anyone modified the exit sheave boxes in the mast to allow for additional halyards? I have sent emails to CST composites to see if they would give any insight but have yet to get any response. I would like to avoid using exterior halyards with a modified mast head carrier if possible. I really would like to have a spare jib and spin halyard. Have any of you done this modification?

    We have a code 0 with a torsion rope and use a continuous line furler on the bow sprit. It’s a nice set up for distance racing and it’s great to have the capability to roll the sail up quickly if the wind were to come up rapidly.

    I have the four stroke 9.8, the only problem I seem to have with the blower is if we run the motor at idle or low speed the motor will choke out with the blower not running. The four stoke is quiet but once you are at high idle the vibration and noise is a bit much. Has anyone been able to dampen the noise in the motor well?

    V berth is tight and if you have the head installed on the port side, you might be resting your head on it. Starboard side berth is good for one person, port side is tight with the nav/sink table. Quarter berths are the best with plenty of room. All that said she’s built for speed not so much for comfort .

    I’d love it if we had another boat here, sucks the FT10 Class seems to have lost steam these past few years. I’m stuck in PHRF here for now.

    Awesome! Thanks guys, I'll see if I can lobby our handicapper with some scotch and get that rating where it should be here on Lake Ontario.

    Im new to the FT10M, bought one last fall, I just got a rating of 45..... After all I have read it doesn't seem like a fair rating. Where I race in particular I will have to give time to two 8 meters with 4x the sail area. Has anyone successfully appealed their rating and had it adjusted?
