    Port tack rudder rule FTW.

    J/29 Cascading Backstay

    What Squalamax said. Also consider a hydraulic system...seriously not a bad option if you are not racing one design.

    The coverage continues to be amazing. So much so that the kids watch the early morning racing before they headed out to Jr sailing for the day. This is the second year that they have done that (proud dad). Keep it up... More Genny with better audio!!

    video evidence

    Couple of things... The boat is very sharp. They did a fantastic job with her and the set-up looks super clean and incredibly well thought out. At that point in the race they were in the middle of a 6 mile reach from NEB to FT Adams and it was getting light and shifty (we were in another class not far behind). Also, most boats in the PHRF 1 and 2 classes ran smack into a 100 degree shift after getting under the Newport bridge and lost whatever time they had on boats ahead. I would not judge the boat by that result at all.

    VOR Leg 8 Itajaí to Newport

    Alright geniuses...I want some prognostications. I am moving my sled to Newport this evening for some spring festivities. Of course, not going to miss a chance to see the home team bring it in. When do you think V11 gets to Castle Hill?

    thank you

    I’m not sure if I am proud to say that I have been here since day 1 or what!!! But it has been a great website and I have met some really great people during the past 19 years. Thanks Scot. And yes, that front page post is soft as David Price.

    Stupid Airports

    Seriously I can't believe anyone has not mentioned Newark. I have absolutely NOTHING good to say about that god forsaken place. I have NEVER gone through that place without some type of delay, gate change, missed gate change, stop for Beduins crossing goats across a taxi way, crash involving a golf cart, etc... Really, talk about an inefficient place. Don't get me started with UAL's regional service.

    BTW that was a great production. The only thing that took away from it was the paid / industry muppets that occupy the front few rows of the TV productions (not the players).

    Team NYYC

    Sweet Jeeeeezus the last time I experienced this much animosity for an American team I walked around Yankee stadium with a Red Sox hat on and a Manny jersey... FFS they have not even drawn a boat and all people want to do is criticize. As a previous poster said, some of you must be great at parties. Please, for all that is good and pure, LIGHTEN UP. Folks around these parts are thrilled that the club is getting back into the AC.This effort has so much potential and the leadership on 44th street is doing a phenomenal job of keeping the members in the loop and generating support. With all of the buzz that is being created and the Oakcliff connection, you might think they have something going...!! FD: Homer who wants to see the club get it back.
  12. V, G, R, T, splash of chambord, sour mix...say good night. Yikes...a few too many of those at once killed two of the four boozes for me permanently.
  13. Good morning FIA... So I pulled a boner last season and didn't properly zinc my sail drive. As a result there is minor pitting on the drive leg. Enough that I am concerned but not enough where I need to replace, yet. My question is this: I would like to fill the areas that have the pitting on them. I have seen different products out there that do the job but am wondering if anyone has any recommendations or experience. Thanks for your help. VM

    Cabin Table

    That may be a winner. Thanks!

    Cabin Table

    Bill ~ A table from a 36.7 or a J109 is actually something I was thinking about. An aftermarket install perhaps? I guess I would have to find a totaled boat or something like that...maybe Jboats would be forthcoming with their supplier. I tried to contact the builder to see how the soured them on the King / Summit 40 but got zilch. My boat needs more weight like I need a hole in my head. The more wind, the bigger the hole in the water it makes going downhill. Thanks all for the information!
