    She got a ring on the finger, great wife. For the 2016 Pac cup, I left her at home with a 3 month old and a 23 month old.

    Took the wife out sailing today, she loved it. She is still learning, she went to sailing camp this summer. Photo to make it real, took my dad’s boat out it’s a little more forgiving than the race boats I sail on.

    I have seen a few "holding tanks" that had a pipe going straight through to a discharge. Not uncommon to find on old boats.
  5. Here is the bag we have it stayed dry.
  6. They sell a bag holder that keeps the water off of them. Get it it works well, we used one on the moore 24 in Pac cup without issue. It did not inflate during that trip because of the bag holder. Let me say it was a wet trip.

    what's your top boatspeed in a J boat?

    Here we are at a smooth 24 knots with the a2.5 up. TWS was only 26 knots. We had a kiteboarder 100 feet off the bow with eyes about as big as pumpkins.

    Full Main + HW Jib?

    I have used both a reefable #1 and #3. The #1 just had a second higher clew this made a jib top. The 3 had both a second clew and tack. We went to the high clew first, making a blast teacher and then to the second tack to be a heavy weather jib for the offshore rules.

    Jib up with assym on sportboat?

    So we take it down with the #1 and #2, around the cans when it’s #3 weather we leave it up. Offshore we set a spin staysail in anything over 14 knots tws. Bbs the downwind legs were short this year with the flood. So with that said on a 15 minuet run we did not want to spend 2 minuet fucking around with a #3 jib. Your results may vary.

    Are Mount Gay Rum Hats Cool?

    Love the hats, I wear them oldest to newest. Current hat is 2000 Pac cup, when I loose it I move to the next one.

    Jib up with assym on sportboat?

    With the #3 we did not want to send the bow guys to the bow and the pit to the pit. We wanted full hike, as we were trying to pass the timeshaver, and we did before the bottom mark of that leg.
