    Comanche sold again?

    I don't actually know who he (Mitch) normally works for in Europe, but I reckon that would be the direction its heading.

    Comanche sold again?

    If I were trying to figure this out, I would probably look at the crew list for the hobart, and wonder why Mitch Booth was sailing on board. Then I would look at who Mitch "normally" works for. I suspect that might be the hint everyone is looking for.
  4. Im interested in this too. I believe to remove the old, a heat gun will assist... But not sure what that would do to the epoxy in the hull

    So whilst the magic number may be 2.7 its dictated by the size of the lower hold container, which varies by plane type.. The pilots amongst us could probably add value here, but you can see from the table below, that its physically impossible to fit 2.7 into some plane types. Not withstanding that some planes also have one hold or so that doesn't take a container, but "loose" luggage.

    I agree, lets call it what it is 295000 soft used old shitboxes, and 5000 (maybe) boats worthwhile racing, but not even those if they are more than a year old are worthwhile as top level race boats. That's the dilemma of the LCM isnt it.

    Its kinda interesting that in junior sailing, girls often out perform boys, and on paper you are correct. In the N17. Gemma Jones came close with her 4th in Rio, and I think if the numbers were more even you would probably see a more even spread of girl skippers scattered through the results. It would appear that in spite of world sailings best efforts in this area, there is still a bit of a disconnect at a more local level when it comes to support and opportunity.
