    I believe the mast is a 2-piece n' est pas?

    Farr 36 - Toy Story

    No disagreement here but it is just an asking price - for the right price though it could be a great boat for shorter coastal jaunts like Annap-Newport, Vineyard, NPT-BER, Mac race and maybe even Pineapple cup and Transpac - sure as hell don't want to do a predominantly upwind race with it
  4. That's a Hella Marine puff piece - not very specific
  5. That is a list of test standards - not devices that comply

    The Yacht Club - Do you get value from your dues?

    Totally agree with you on RORC - has been a member for many years and it is super value Were just staying for 3 days in Cowes this summer - where else can you get a (actually surprisingly large) double room with a balcony overlooking the Solent for around 100 quid? And the rooms in the London club house are about 1/5 of what a nearby hotel will charge you.

    Thanks - good info Since you are local - do you know what kind of nick the boat is in?

    Farr 36 - Toy Story

    I don't think it had a canting keel

    I have asked for more detail on the boat as it does look interesting to me - and enticing.

    Pulsing in rudder/tiller

    With a proper rudder profile it should definitely not shed carman vortices - it can be a lot of drag. The vid you posted is of carman vortices around a rod - not a rudder
