    But apparently you have to have eaten at a local restaurant in order to buy the boats...kinda funny and odd at the same time.

    Looking for a Viper 640 mast

    or I have a brand new 505 mast that was never finished being rigged. That one is in Massachusetts.

    Looking for a Viper 640 mast

    I have a lightly used, two year old Superspar alloy stick that comes off of a Squib from England. The mast is in Park City, Utah and could come with a boom of the same vintage. We converted a Rhodes 19 to use it and thought that's where we were headed but now there's a movement to put a class legal stick back in. Squib class

    Five-O-Five fun on LIS

    Is that the small/chicken suit in the background there? Haven't seen one of those in a while.

    Salvage advise appreciated

    Who cares if the road doesn't support the crane. Likely the crane wouldn't do more than crack the pavement anyways. Wouldn't that be preferable to having a boat there if somebody is willing to hire a crane to move the boat? I was just at my father-in-law's place in Beaufort, SC and we took a boat ride and saw three sailboats on the mud, left over from the last hurricane. One is on the marsh in front of Parris Island. Ripe for the picking if somebody was willing.

    RS Cat 14 Question

    DTA, it's a little different with A-Cats which is I have the most experience with. They're 160 pounds and are very light on their feet so other A-Cat sailors told me it was important to tie the tail of the mainsheet to your trap harness when sailing alone. Those boats can get away from you quickly even when laying on their side. I would recommend the same but like another side, maybe keep a knife nearby, one with a quick line cutting hook on it, and just remember that you're tied on. You could also do some testing with it, if you can get a friend with a powerboat. Jump off untethered out in the open and watch how quickly the boat moves and what it does. With heavier hulls, it's likely to be pretty stable and stay upright.

    F1 2018...

    During practice this morning they were saying that Max has driven the last two rounds in a calm manner and that his father wasn't present at either round. They say his father is back at Austria so they'll see what happens...fireworks!

    The VX Evo

    I wondered if it was 100% crossover, I figured it would be. I took a drive into the club shortly after and saw one VX One and a few VX Evos so I figured that the fleet was converting but your thoughts make sense. That's an interesting proposition to have a VX Evo event on the Friday before the other boats race. Seems like some people need a trailer to take their Viper/Evo or One/Evo combos.

    The VX Evo

    I saw a small fleet of VX Evos in Beaufort, SC a month ago. They appear to have replaced a fleet of VX Ones with VX Evos, maybe due to crew sourcing issues? They looked fun. I wish I had stopped by when they were racing but we passed by on a powerboat while they were out on Memorial Day.

    I imagine that Max will mature at some point too, it's bound to happen, either between experience or constant stern talks from his team and sponsors, but the question is what comes of it. It's like Dani Pedrosa from MotoGP if you follow that. He was the big Spanish hope for the WC and he was never able to put together more than a string of injuries. He's now out for Jorge Lorenzo which should make it interesting next year.

    It couldn't be part of Red Bull's strategy because with each crash, you see Horner looking annoyed and he's shaking his head.

    And I respectfully disagree. I think the ability of the car gets him out of trouble far more and if he was in one of the lesser cars, he'd already be a reserve driver. He keeps piling into other cars, putting his car where it doesn't belong. I wouldn't call that instinct. I'd call that an oh shit moment.
