    North Texas Dinghy

    One of my crew members Just told me that he was selling his SR 17. I've sailed against him and it is wicked fast. He sails it single-handed a lot but it is a better two person boat.

    Kiwi 35 v melges 30

    IIRC hull #1 was later modified from a 15' to a 19' beam and a much taller mast. I remember sailing in a St Pete race week and it raced along with a standard 35 sailed by Tim Woodhouse.

    Swan 42

    I believe Tigress started off life as Dr Scott Pipers "Pipe Dream" and based in Miami. First real race was the Wirth Monroe Palm Beach race pitted against the new Soveral 39 ""Locura" It was her first race also ! Dr Piper raced her in the SORC and local races out of Buscayne Bay Yacht Cub.

    Looking for a Viper 640 mast

    Haven't talked to anyone about a carbon rig. Can carbon be repaired.
  9. I just bought an 18 foot sailboat. Overall good condition. I removed the old registration numbers from the bow and cleaned the hull with On/Off, heavy duty rubbing compound, and even tried wet sanding. You can still see the numbers. I don't need registration Numbers where I am using the boat so the old numbers can still be seen. Any ideas how to get this out ?

  12. Looking for a used mast from a viper 640 ( or similar sized mast) . I am in South Florida but could travel to pick up. Any leads appreciated.
  13. Dave, I was unable to PM you. I found an article on the 1985 regatta but not The race times.
  14. Yachting Magazine ran a One of Kind Regatta for dinghys back in approximately 1984. They published the elapsed time results in their magazine. ( remember when we were their target audience!!!) Does anyone have that article ? I am hoping to find a copy.

    Open 5.00 for Racing

    I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the Open 5.00. I'm looking for a boat I can single or double hand, race in some assigned rating classes, and trailer it to areas to do a daysail. I really like the idea of the pivoting keel on the open 5.00 and the fact that it is self righting. Most of the areas I sail require you to launch in shallow water and then let the keel down as you get out a bit. It looks like a nice stable boat and reading about it appears to be fairly quick. Anyone have any experience with its speed versus similar type boatsand reading about it appears to be fairly quick. Anyone have any experience with its speed versus similar type boats
