    I like it if the purchase price is very low. Doyle main and Genoa look ok (from here) as well as the S1. Somebody keep us informed if it sells. Sail Safe!

    Ro Ro Rolls Over in Georgia

    My Alumni page wrote up about this project and how they plan to cut her up. 99% of Marine industry professionals say this will end very badly using the last 2 ships they tried to cut up as examples. Remember, the ship was not designed to hold the weight of the cargo in its present state. It will get out of hand quickly and I hope nobody gets hurt if that happens. Anybody ever hear of OPA 90'?

    TP52 - Nat J For Sale

    Listen Bob, it is horses for courses and you know it. Some boats are dry, some bring only enough for 1 beer each for after finishing, some bring a keg. I think the chances of someone getting hurt goes up with each beer they have and this can get very expensive quickly. That said, I plan to have one tomorrow, maybe one after each rounding...

    J/27 vs. Tartan Pride 270 vs. Impulse 26

    I think There is a Pride 270 in Lake Norman NC now. They beat up on a couple of very well sailed boats last week. Hope to get a shot at them this weekend (in the rain of course ).. Sail safe!

    But what about the optimum amount of mast rake ? That is what we want to know. This thread is no good without... Sail Safe!

    J 36 mast rake

    I was lucky enough to race a J36 (Feather) for the first time this fall here in ORF. The boat had a running backstays and in 25+, we had them 'firmly snug' but not piano wire tight. Gave the J111 here a run for their $ on a boat built in 1986. I looked up the rig but, did not sight it from the dock to see how much rake she was running with. A fun boat to race on and very stable in a fresh breeze. Sail Safe!

    Gill gloves - sizes

    Santa gave me a pair of 3/4 length Gill gloves for X-MAS. Size was XL but, I tried to put them on and felt like O.J. (too small). Any other suggestions besides Home Depot? Sail Safe!
