    Marley Point 2018 50th Anniversary

    It seemed to us it was really important to keep the sails on the side that had the best chance of being right. We did a lot of batten flicking during the night but pretty much keep going straight. This is also clearly easier in a smaller boat

    F-22 Update

    Bit of a different field really: Diam-24-1.jpg A day racer with no folding system, and fast, but takes 2 hours to launch versus: F-22Aust-1.jpg A fast cruiser with 4 berths, galley, a folding system, and very quick to launch Diam24Aft.jpg Apples and oranges in fact 7SternViewAtDock-1.jpg But F-22 order book is bulging, with a 2 year wait, so only one choice right now Correct I'd rather be out sailing than waiting in a queue.+1But it is possible to be out sailing on plenty of other great boats while enduring the seemingly endless wait for a factory built F22 if that's your ultimate preference. Of course the DIAM 24 and the F22 are very different boats with very different strengths and weaknesses. They can both be at the leading edge of racing fleets as we saw recently in the multihull nationals. One is a racer that requires set up time and the other is a racer/cruiser that can be ready to go in minutes. I faced a choice recently between the two when I decided to move on from my Sprint. (Another great boat in this size range which you can have right now) I would have loved a DIAM but my mast up hard stand club will only take folded boats. So I have a shiny new 22 which can be on the water racing in ten minutes. Of course both boats would have me starting almost on Thursday in the predominantly mono slug fleet for WAGS. Nice you have seen the light WetnWild Haha. There are shades of light😀Saw the green boat yesterday. Looking a bit unused ATM.

    F-22 Update

    How is that green boat in the hot sun? Does it get extra warm inside the cabin? The deck gets hot at times but not inside

    Looks like the F22 update needs an update this is Sknot at the Australian nationals at Wangi.
