    New sail order headache

    For what it's worth, I have an early 2018 3DI NorDac main on my Frers 33- intended as a cruising/racing main. I don't know the equivalent material spec in the current line-up- mine was quoted as 16,800 DPI. I did not go with full battens, but even the full-battened quote was much lower than the OP's price, adjusted for $CDN. The sail was certainly heavier than the previous blown-out Doyle membrane race sail (purchased by P.O., so I don't know the material details. That said, it has held its shape perfectly over three years of heavy mixed use, and we have done extremely well with it in local races. I am very happy that we made the decision to buy it (felt kinda risky because it was the first full production year for 3DI NorDac.)

    Maritime Art Anarchy

    I was very sad to hear that Mystic Seaport had to close the Maritime Art gallery this year. It was a great place to imagine what I’d buy if I had money!

    Jane Honda!

    Two or four stroke? I loved my two stroke, but mixing in the oil every fill up was a PITA, especially in the winter.

    "National Cleavage Day"

    Hey Tom- yeah, if only the Internet had existed back then, I wouldn't have had to swipe my dad's playboys. That's Liz Brewer- here she is as of 2019. Sic transit gloria etc... I hope all's well.

    Dolphins in Long Island Sound

    Saw a large group (50+) of dolphins in the LIS just South of Oyster Bay/Lloyd Point about four years ago. I still have the video. IIRC, there was a thread with a number of sightings at the time.

    Save my Sander

    Or, you can discover that the screw heads that look like Phillips on your boat are actually Frearson. Ask me how I know...

    There is a clean looking 10.3 in Michigan, on Yachtworld, with an asking price in your range. I have raced on a friend's 10.3 for a number of years and would unhesitatingly buy one as a racer/cruiser. Well built, roomy, and fast in all conditions- easily sails to its rating here in the WLIS area. As mentioned, the cockpit traveller is a big plus compared to cabin-top setups, IMO. The only real caveat is that some of them had mast-step problems. Somebody else mentioned the Frers 33- I own one, so I'm a bit prejudiced. Really fun boat, but they tend to trade a little higher than your price range.

    Hand Bearing Compasses

    Interesting- I've had the app since the iPhone 3G- it was free back then, and I guess they have always upgraded it at no charge. Either way, it's a very useful app.

    Hand Bearing Compasses

    Although I use a Plastimo hockey puck on the boat, it’s worth mentioning the Theodolite app for iPhone- also free, and just plain fun to use.

    DTS Emma Peel

    Avengers era Diana Rigg may have been the best looking woman of all time. I certainly did not watch the show to see Patrick Macnee.

    Always- racing and cruising, on our boat and OPBs. She usually drives on ours.
