    Turbo'd SR21

    HSR is a little too soon to make plans to do, at this point. I'd certainly entertain it for next year. Boat rates 168, which is 6 secs faster than a J24 at 174. Up there, with the ridiculous PHRF-NW system it should correlate to 180 (with the J24 at 186). If you have the Tahoe boat, which rated 171 there we are pretty close. What PHRF fleets are you 'ripping up'? Message me, we'll take it offline. -Snap

    Turbo'd SR21

    H20 #9 was a stock beater I presume you bought from Fred Miller then sold to Scott Walsh? You wouldn't know about the planing ability with the stock small spin. I'm a big fan of Hendo's boats and the SR 27 I sailed at KWRW is still one of my fav's. It would be fun to line test with the two boats because old boats that have been updated are cool. -Snap

    Turbo'd SR21

    I'd like to square off with that thing in my Holder 20X! Shame we're on opposite coasts. -Snap

    What is it, PNW?

    Actually, you myopic trollops, the PNW and SD produce excellent sailors. I've been in both worlds and have learned a shit ton about currents and various effects. I believe this thread is about the Trader fiasco so keep it in check. -Snap

    What is it, PNW?

    Jim was more than happy to walk away from that project. It cost him his shop space but he's in a better location now. I wonder if Donovan ever got paid in full? The Trader legacy is one of people getting screwed by a nut bag owner. This boat is just another chapter in that legacy... -Snap

    Schrock Santana 23D dagger board model

    Right, the old Dogmeat. Didn't know you'd moved up to my old neck of the woods, BR. How easy was it to raise the board underway/loaded? -Snap

    Schrock Santana 23D dagger board model

    Which one? Thumper? How did you deal with kelp? I sailed on one out of SWYC once and could have renamed it KELCO. Asking because it's actually on my radar for the 'camp cruising' you mentioned. -Snap

    what was it?

    12 metre - the sage of English Bay... The boat was named Stardancer. MacLaurin didn't name it one of the Pendragons because it didn't have an inboard engine and not built for offshore racing. I packed it up in MDR and got it trucked up to Seattle as part of the DWW team. WIRW wipeout was epic and spurred an e-conversation between Davidson and myself regarding the rudder. I was driving when the winch pulled in a buoy race off Shilshole. Got it fixed by Henderson and better than new. It's a fantastic boat. Keel is original. MACE looks like a candidate for a complete reno. I'd go the U.K. QT route and frac it with MH spin. -Snap
  9. Always wanted to retire in Oz and now I know where to go. Thanks, LB. -Snap

    Santana 20/tuna 20

    What??!! Glenn passed away? Holy fuck that just ruined my night. I don't think I'd spoken to him in the last three years but last time he was doing OK and adding pizza franchises. FWIW, Flasher is a pretty damn good boat. -Snap

    Peterson 38 Dust 'Em

    There was a thread on Dust 'em here years ago showing pics of it being converted to a liveaboard with a ply house added. A real shame. I drove Doug's frac Flamboyant in Yachting Cup once and it was an upwind rocket. I'm pretty sure it was a wood boat. -Snap

    Santana 20

    considering hull #1 was built in 1976, I'd say you got a hell of a deal.

    Holder 20 GPX (turbo)

    Nope. I'm tied up all September with 6 meter World's in Vancouver. Next year with a NW20 fleet sounds like a plan. -Snap

    Holder 20 GPX (turbo)

    Holder 20X Drone video- Mission Bay, CA Had the kid test out his new drone when we tested the new Main made by Ballard Sails out of Seattle. Very nice. -Snap

    Don't forget to mention it was struck by lightning in New Orleans in the ad...
