    I for one am attempting to detoxify from my vicious and debilitating pre-election addiction to Political Anarchy. I am now hiding out in the happy land of socially distanced solo yacht racing where there is esprit de corps among the sea loving nations of the world, good natured bickering between the Brits and the French and no Trump boat parades. So, if you don’t mind, can we please keep that whoref*cking orange nazi out of this?

    I quite agree, was right with you up until that last word zinger you threw out. That's not how you do it.


  2. Dock lines meant to be stretchy, not a good home for old sheets and halyards. Same goes for recycling into dog leashes.

    Oops just saw that about fibreglass....


  3. Buckets, cars, counterweights, all good thinking if only wild ideas to put out there. Now where can we work some bungee, helium balloons and drones into the solution ?

    Maybe a little smaller than the other options listed, but this boat would be one of the coolest options. It just completed the 2 Handed Round North Island Race too so maybe ticks the "ocean" box in the Ocean and Club Racer title......

    I always thought this would be an awesome boat for Hamo and Airlie Beach. Has its own shipping cradle. It even has a chemical toilet!!!! Basically ready to go........

    What's the deal with those fixed outrigger style reaching struts up front? Not seen that design before.
