  1. Seems like the new Bella has had some teething issues over the last year. Any details?
  2. I race/boat to escape all the bullshit on the shore. What I cannot stand currently on the course are those assclowns using Trump flags as battle flags. Or those powerboaters with no brain cells flying them from their outriggers. Just as bad as people with bumper stickers on their cars. Then again, it does allow me to know who is a fucking idiot these days.

    I don't know about you all, but even being paid, I could not act like those jackasses do. Really are some trashy people in the world.

    ORC vs PHRF, how do they compare?

    It will be an interesting year in PHRF in Annapolis. It is more than likely the 35 fleet will not get a OD start for events due to some bad blood with ghost boats signed up last year trying to keep a fleet. If that happens, you might see the 35 struggling in PHRF A2. As it already was over the past decade, when the 35s went to PHRF events, they did not do well. Maybe ORC will be a difference maker, but yet to be determined.

    ORC vs PHRF, how do they compare?

    It will be interesting to see how the results are changed. For instance. Xiberger the Cape Fear 38 with a rating of 72 has been very hard to beat over the years in PHRF which made us wonder if 69 should be the true rating.

    Screwpile Back for 2020

    Like every race, some years are better than others with the conditions. My suggestion would be to have early Friday starting times of 10am, and no more 5pm or later. Everything else other than the bar closing time doesn't need to change. Most people are already taking off Friday to do the evening race, so that complaint is null and void. If you are really worried about the bar, Cooks is up the street and you can buy 30 racks and have a blast on the river front. In fact, St. Mary's should also hold a FJ regatta on Friday evening. That would be a fun addition. Housing could open Friday evening if racers get in, the costs shouldn't need to change for that.

    That's not SMSA, try St. Mary's directly.

    Screwpile Back for 2020

    This is what happens when people do not work together. You are correct! Lack of participation not only is due to outside forces, but also due to forces as you mention. We must do better, or my kids will not be able to race like we have been able to. As it is, all those stories of the days of past are no longer true now.

    But the pools will be closed! Probably for the best. Didn’t ever sit in that sailor testicle tea anyway.

    too much time spent below for a race boat

    The boat, I assumed the hottie was doing well considering she was probably hanging with Grundy's son.

    To be far, I didn't see her do all that well outside of the bay either.

    Henderson 30?

    I'd buy one in a heartbeat if I had the resources. However, finding 8 friends would be a real challenge.

    New Hugo Boss Spotted

    Looks okay. Hard to tell but not nearly as bad as it could have been.

    Musto Sucks

    All of this. Musto now has the warranty on their site for 2 years only. Once those two years expire, they state, Gore picks up the warranty with their "Guaranteed to Keep you Dry" policy. So even if it isn't the fabric after 2 years, and actual construction starts failing, there is nothing which will cover you. No one, should expect to replace a $775 MPX Race Jacket every 2 years, that is insane. Musto previously, and other companies used to say for the life of the garment, While that ambiguity left it open for interpretation, most people think a item of these prices, should last considerably longer than 5 years, yet alone the 2 they offer now. If it is a design defect that shows up later, it is not their problem any longer. That seems to be an issue in the OP. They certainly did change the zippers over the model years, maybe that doesn't happen unless their is a problem, but us customers will never know. For my own sake, I decided to look into this further in case anything in the future arises. Below is what happens when you contact Gore. Which, even at first look, feels like you are getting the run around. Who has an initial receipt these days? Furthermore, if you look into the fine print on their website, they will only cover your costs to your purchase price via a credit to the manufacturer. While sure, that is 100% of what you paid and semi-reasonable, every year these products are going up in price. That $400 item you bought is now, $600. For a something that should not have failed, you still would be on the hook for $200. Even if Musto were to offer you cost on a new one, that still is a lot of money for people. I don't see this changing, but it certainly would be nice to have a company stand by their product and customer base, without always looking at the bottom line, profit. Thank you for contacting GORE-TEX Brand Services. Please provide us with some additional information so that we can handle your case with the highest level of efficiency and accuracy. Before we take a look at your item, we will need to establish some initial information to determine the item’s overall condition. This is important because the item to be returned must have useful life left and not be excessively damaged or worn-out. Please answer the questions below to the best of your ability: Brand? Style or model name? GORE-TEX technology, if known? (This information can often be found on the sleeve or tag.) Size of the item? Where did you purchase the item? What year did you purchase the product/s? What was the price you paid including tax? Please attach a copy of your initial receipt. How have you cared for the item? (Washing, care instructions, etc.) Is the item damaged? (tears, punctures, heavy abrasion etc.) If so please explain. Where is the specific location/s you are experiencing the leak/ delamination? Please describe the conditions or activity in which you experienced the leak or noticed the delamination. Please attach pictures of the item’s current condition (front, back, and inside), the area/s of leakage, any damaged areas, tread on the soles (for footwear), our GORE-TEX tag, and the manufacturer's tag. * PLEASE NOTE* Pictures may need to be sent in multiple emails if the attachment size exceeds 10MB. Attachments 10MB and smaller can be received without issue. Please provide your mailing address. If you prefer the option to receive a call related to you case, please provide your phone number, if not previously provided.

    Good source for VPC line?

    To make amends, I have been searching for you. You are right there are no better prices. I do have a question, is $8 for UPS really too much? That is how much it is quoted for 100'. Seems reasonable to me.

  23. This is why I own an RC Sailboat. It is what I can afford to campaign.
  24. Who is to say that those are any different? Recreation J sailors have a dream just as much as an Olympic sailor.
  25. I honestly find some of the pandering to be a bit much across all facets of life. However, we all know the amount of expendable income in this world for some is huge. Not to be political by any means, but as an easy example look at how many people donate money to political campaigns just because they don't like the other party. These people have no idea where the money will actually be spent, but they still do so anyway. I'd rather give to someone I know where the money is going, rather than flushing it down a political toilet, but that is just my thoughts. Life is about choices, and if someone wants to donate to anything by all means go ahead. If someone wants to ask for help, by all means go ahead. If they want to work together, again go ahead. No one has to donate anything, no one has to ask. Choose your own path.
