    A bigger version of the Jet 14 would be the Thistle.

    You've got a very good memory. Either that, or you just went back & read the accounts of the racing. Here's what Red Marston had to say about it in the St. Pete Times: 1962_FD-Worlds_FinalDay.pdf I remember that the Australians launched from the Gandy's beach in Big Bayou, and sailed back & forth each day. The Gandys became big fans of the Aussies, and were insistent that the Danes had fouled & should have been disqualified in that race. I guess it wouldn't have mattered though, since that was their throw-out race anyway. There were also rumors that Fogh & Elvstrom had practically come to blows during that race. Helen (Gandy) O'Brien was still upset about it when I saw her about 5 years ago.

    Building an A-class Catamaran

    I'll bet those involved tortured-ply, not developable surfaces. There's a big difference in the skill involved to build them!

    rs aero vs low-riding scow moth

    antskip asked about a low-riding scow. Mach2 is a foiling skiff, so that wouldn't compare.

    Where do you think these would fit in this figure?

    iFLY15 - bullshit marketing?

    It doesn't look like "zero wind" to me. Very lite, for sure, but not zero.

    Show your dingy sailing....

    Hi revintage. I haven't sailed this summer, but I'm not giving up for the winter or spring. That 1st Moth was designed & built by my Dad. It can best be described as a rounded version of the Cates (or Florida) Moth that had been winning most of the races prior to that. Here's a photo at the 1964 Florida State Championships, showing both designs.

    Maybe you should try posting this later, when you might be sober.

    Used cat market

    How do you know the depreciation without knowing the original price? Are you assuming they are all the same?
