    do big race boats depreciate?

    I sold my Sunfast 3600 for 50% of its all in cost after 5 years and the new Sunfast 3300 is going to hammer the 3600 values as IT is the new shiny object!!

    do big race boats depreciate?

    And small race boats depreciate and mid size race boats depreciate - ask a Swan 42, or C&C 99 or Farr 400 onwer - - they all do as the latest shiny object comes to the market....

    single-hand setup - beginner questions

    The Express 37 is fine for cruising and short handing - there is one here in LIS - Lora Ann - that is very successfully raced DH both in local distance and Bermuda races. As an added benefit it has a LOT more space than a 30"

    SunFast 3600

    This is a fabulous short handed boat which I agree is easy to sail but takes more skill to sail fast - she responds so well to tuning! Now all I need is for one of you to buy her!!!

    SunFast 3600

    The 3600 is absolutley set up for short handed racing - I wish I had your PHRF rating as here in LIS we have a 53 which is kind of hard to sail to so whenever possible we rahter chose the IRC division. My boat is set up with tillers and a full suite of B&G 5000 instruments, including pilot - with a big ass Raymarine ram - and it is a joy to sail when the breeze is up. Unfortunately LIS in summer is a bit of a dead sea and it is no surprise that in sub 5 knots we are draging a lot of water with the broad transom. As far as results go - the boat is far better than my ability to make it go fast! - still learning so better to look at results from Transquadra, Middle Sea Race, Carib 600 etc all of which the boat has shone - was IRC boat of the year in 2015/2016. Invictus needs a sparring partner so anone on the left coast that needs a fully sorted, full Cat 1 offshore equiped boat at a 50% discount to new - PM me!

  13. Lithium Cobalt Cells. Older legacy cells, same kind that caused so many fires in early Apple Powerbooks. Li-Cobalt doesn't scale well and has "thermal issues". Marine applications now typically use Lithium Iron Phosphate which is the safest chemistry.
