    Sydney 38 in Annapolis

    It started it's life in Chicago while I lived there and the boat has never performed - I really don't care where it is............. If somebody is looking for a boat to race - that one is not it

    the MOD 70's do have the extra feature of a canting rig so they are especially in need of a flexible forestay anchoring setup but your point is nevertheless salient
  6. It better go like shit off a shovel since it (like the scow 6.50s) are fugly as hell. They also better hope for a good blow and a LOT of reaching

    2019 Inflatable PFD's

    Do yourself a favor and try out out your belt pack in 6-100 foot waves and you will never rely on that again. IMHO they should be banned - that is how badly they suck. And off course if your noggin gets a bump as you go over it doesn't do jack shit either

    DHS takes on the RRS

    Do you have firm info as to how many of the boats and deceased sailors participated in the race vs cruising? Has anybody pointed this out to the USCG sector command in charge of the report?

    Yep - doesn't bode well for future upgrades, customer service or the ability to actually stay in business.

    Rules for storm sails prior to 1/1/2014

    Especially if it is done in your backyard. A few pints of paint and a roller

    A 1720 and FT 10 in the same sentence ????????????????? Sure they both are boats and float but they are so far apart in most aspects it is not even funny. What have you been huffing?

    Gunboat 68

    He is talking about in-boom furling - NOT in-mast furling - very different animal and much less penalty in terms of sail design - can still do squaretop main and horizontal battens
