    If that doesn't make you appreciate where you were born...

    New sails

    Sail looks fine for fun club racing. Never sailed/knew the X21 - did they make many ? Life with an orphan is interesting ( I have the only Impulse 21 in Hawaii)

    Oh, they would HARDLY be the first to arrive on these shores over-extended and in-hope of some fiscal salvation that fails to materialize. Easy to see how the once-bleeding edge tech might have trickled-down to a lesser program that just couldn't sustain it. Was still there last night, btw...

    Yeah, sailing a 12 out off of Diamond Head in the summer time sounds like a good idea...

    As the two egregiously bad examples of personal behavior didn't happen on the race course, it's hard to wave the red book at them, however - boy, you sure want to not be associated with anyone that would act in such a manner. Too bad your club allowed this member to stain their reputation for so long. I know I've been embarrassed to share membership with a couple real gems at my club over the years though. We once had a club officer get frustrated with the course assigned (and to be fair, it was the 3rd long course on a light-air day) and flipped the bird at the R/C. We banned him from the race course for a year. Nobody abuses the volunteers. Screaming at a kid ? Best if that sort of thing was just quickly sorted out with a beat-down actually (by the kid's mom, because only a complete fucking pussy would do a thing that).

    Racing Dinghy with Easily Stepped Mast?

    How long is a piece of string ? Good Lord - the answer for our Original Quest could be one of dozens of boats, hundreds in you're properly fortified. You know, because a an FJ and an FD are for the same constituents....and somebody that's ready for a 505 would be fine all day on a 420.

    Nice photo of the Mark 2 rig and sail, Port Wine - but I'd never seen, or even thought of a mast-head float on them ! Raz'r, I sail KBay, (there's a decent lauch just 3 miles from my house) but have little interest in getting in the way of the Laser racers

    You have to wonder if anyone would even notice if it were missing from its mooring for a couple days around Labor Day....

    I seriously doubt it ever got to Hawaii if they had one. They arrived and pretty much abandoned the boat at the wharf - the harbormaster in Kewalo supposedly had to chase them down to get paid anything, AFTER giving them a place to park that thing, during a very busy season. Clearly not a well-organized effort that landed it here. Too bad but it's SUCH a white elephant, I don't know what will become of it.

    It is on its mooring on the back row in Keehi harbor - as of last night anyway. Bottom does not appear to have been cleaned in a while and couldn't tell was-all, if anything is missing because I just don't know what gear it had, but the big parts are all there - although it does look like the instruments are gone.
