    Man almost a 200$ price drop. Better snap that thing up before someone else beats you to it. It won't last long at this price!!

    “Among the most prestigious awards in sailing.”

    As a youth star sailor who has been in the class for several years, I was recently emailed by the class secretary asking if I would be attending the worlds in Nassau. "My 4 other junior skipper friends and myself would absolutely love to! The $5,000 minimum cost of getting over there and lodging is a bit tough to manage for someone under 30.." She said "she will see what she can do" I really appreciate the effort and we will see where it leads, but when I see them piss away tens (probably hundreds) of thousands of dollars on 20 year old RC44's for the SSL Gold Cup, this irks me a good bit.. As a youth who has spent thousands of dollars per year sailing in your fleet for the past 8 years or so, there is little support for the youth (who are not cat 3) who are trying to keep the boat alive. They cut the price of entry for most regattas in half for juniors which helps out a lot and allows me to sail them, but as we know the entry fee is only 1/10th of the cost of participation.. Maybe I'll start a go fund me for bowchows star campaign

    anybody board the First 53 at the Annapolis Show?

    The lack of traveler is a good director of what this thing is meant for. Sadly. Because she looks awesome. Good hull shape. Under powered and over weight, with no way to get more power into the rig.

    composite floor boards?

    Looking for a solution to re make an existing floorboard set up on a 38' racer cruiser (mostly racer). Floorboards are typical teak/holly at the moment and have seen better days. About 1/2" thick, so we have some room to play with. Was debating starboard, but another boat I work on has this and there is a decent amount of flex. Just seeing if anyone else has done anything similar that isn't crazy expensive (time and cost wise) IMG_4672.jp2

    Second stars. Great fleet presence in MI, lots of racing down here in Miami in the winter, and MANY skippers north of 65 in the fleet.

    Aspen YC has one of these as their RC boat. Name is Waterbed. Complete with original inboard. I'm not sure if I have ever felt more character on a boat than Waterbed. I'll grab some pics next time I'm there.
