    J/111 Goes Sailing...

    That seems pretty consistent with my experience. I haven't calculated that closely, but always figured about .5 gallon per hour.

    Asked and well answered. Thanks.

    We all appreciated you guys making the trip and glad no one was more seriously hurt. I am curious how you thought this damage wasn't considered serious enough to warrant consideration of an appeal? What is your definition of serious damage? Seems to me a hull breach qualifies. I'm not intending to flame you guys, just curious.

    cell phone range extenders on Great Lakes

    I have verizon. I sit at my cottage and get regularly get connected to Rogers in Canada 40 miles away even though I'm in Verizon coverage area. Verizon isn't the answer.
  5. Was my goto place for equipment. Always seemed to have what I need. New APS is just another clothing store. Guess they figure by losing one customer they will gain 2.

    Stanford sailing coach gets probation

    Disagree on fact or opinion? Memes are cute, but not very insightful.

    Stanford sailing coach gets probation

    He got off easy. Lot's of people have gone to jail just for lying. Multiple, repeated, premeditated felonies, While not taking cash, he would benefit himself through prestige of a stronger sailing program that he would have gotten credit for, Discredited the institution and the sailing program, Likely denied other worthy applicants, Not sure if he is married or has kids, but if so, he likely has impacted their future well being and lifestyle - who's going to hire him? and all the other impacts previously noted. If he had not been caught, he would have continued the same behavior. Hard to believe his claim of being devastated now that he suddenly found his moral compass. Ohh, the crocodile tears. Hopefully USSailing and/or ISAF will ban him as well.

    fresh water racing bottom paint

    VC17. The guys at the marina say that the boats with original VC17 come out of the water the cleanest - better than either the red or blue colored VC17 for some reason. I put Black Widow on my keel and rudder last season and didn't see any better performance than VC17. I didn't get BW quite as polished as it could have been and that may have been a contributing factor. This wrenching season I'm going to apply a few more coats and polish to 2000 grit and automotive polish.

    Black Widow

    Did you sand per instructions? hand sand or machine? I've got my 3 coats on keel and rudder and need to burnish.

    July 2017 J/111 Great Lakes Racing

    Hey, congrats on the new boat. It's the former British Soldier, correct? I'm excited that there are now 4 boats in the PHMac. Hope we can get a few more. Not sure of your schedule, but PHYC hosts an overnight race on July 4th weekend that's a great tune-up race for the Mac.

    OK, for what you describe for top of the line gear, etc. that's about in the ball park. Hope you included the professional bottom prep :-) Almost consider selling mine at that price - on second thought, no. Having too much fun with it. Hope he can find a boat soon. Great to see the fleet grow. Maybe the Nationals there next year.

    Go with the J88....like a modern Mumm. Love the boat...$165K ALL in This! Cant wait to launch our 88. So what does "all in" include and how does that compare to Charliegolf's undefined half million?

    Been a couple years since I've been in the market, but what the hell are you buying? I can't imagine pricing has increased that much!
