    Lake Erie Anarchy Part 2

    From a Star sailor's perspective, Cleveland Race Week One Design was an awesome event, one which the Stars will be sure to attend again next year. Five boats from Lorain, one from Rocky River, one from Detroit, one from Chicago and one from Milwaukee enjoyed a very well run regatta. Thanks to one and all involved in organizing and hosting the event.

    West Michigan Thread

    This Cleveland boy will be heading to Gull Lake for one of the best Star regattas in the mid-West in a little over a week. Can't wait to return to southwest Michigan for great racing and even better times with friends off the water. You wolverines are gracious hosts! See you soon......

    Hey, Rugger.... Are you going to be able to rally the Highlanders and bring them over to LSYC for their annual One Design Regatta on July 14th?

    Definitely great club, grew up sailing there, went on something like 14 or 15 club cruises. Learned how to race with the Stefans on Wildfire, then on Lake Effect, also did a couple Jr. Bays for LSYC. I know I started sailing at other clubs looking for more competition, but always enjoyed the Lorain Regatta. Bummer to see the racing declining, but the club will still be one of the most friendly and socially active on the lake. Do you know if they are still going to host a Jr. regatta? There is still a very active Star fleet as well as Interlake fleet. It is a great club with a fairly dedicated core group of sailors.

    20+ Footer - Building in Hawaii

    Not spraying because I’m not a painter and I don’t have a spray gun. I am looking for someone to spray the topsides and deck. Awlgrip high build primers are not recommended for below waterline applications, but more importantly, are really hard and difficult to sand after cure. I’ve tried them on a powerboat deck once – that was enough. 545 is quite thin, but an excellent paint that sands beautifully. I just put a thin coat on the other day to get the hull a uniform color – makes it much easier to pick up the surface imperfections. Rolling it on with enough reducer that it flattens out nicely. Jim: Are the base, the catalyst and the reducer the only components used when rolling on the 545? What percentage of reducer do you use to let it lay down?

    +1 I get pissed when there are no new photos on this thread. Definitely my favorite read on SA. Jim....keep the posts frequent and full of photos.

    Sweet design. I agree with you position concerning the i550 - great concept, just not attractive enough with the flat sides and such to make me want to take the leap. Now this design would certainly fit the bill. Please keep the posts coming concerning the boat and the build.
