    Fduck Foiling!

    He pushed the limits with all his designs and was always on the cutting edge, looking for the next innovation. He would absolutely embrace foiling.

    You do know he has a BSME, which is a Bachelor of SCIENCE in Mechanical Engineering. Its not an advanced degree, but is a degree in science. Also, most scientists don't have degrees which specifically state "scientist" Stephen Hawking has advanced degrees in theoretical physics and applied mathematics and I don't think anyone would have an issue calling him a scientist.

    They refer to Super Bowl champions "World Champions" as well". Always thought that was a joke.
  8. Never believe what some hack reporter writes about any incident. They always get everything wrong, not just the details. There will be some culpability as far as the law goes, but the big deal will be the civil suit that will ensue.

    All kidding aside, they have some good racing at Barrington yacht club with a great J29 OD fleet as well as PHRF probably in your rating range.

    Ok to move J30 traveler to companionway?

    Should have clarified, “ALMOST all tracks and fittings” are bolted trough balsa core. The genoa tracks, primaries, secondaries and mooring cleat are all bolted through balsa core without any compression sleeve from the factory. All high load fittings. The J29 frac rig(which has almost identical sail plan to J30) has the main traveller bolted through the cockpit seats through balsa core with no compression sleeves from the factory. My point being it’s done ALL the time with zero issue(other than water intrusion into the core eventually) When I rebedded my J29 deck fittings, I over bored and filled with epoxy all fitting penetrations. This was done to prevent water intrusion and not because the core was being crushed from compression. All fitting penetrations had made it 30+ years in the factory configuration just fine(I’m sure they were rebedded many times over to keep water out though)
