    Circles? That implies they're moving.

    Kirby 30

    I race against 3 K30s during our weekly club race. One is well maintained and well sailed. One was new last year. The third guy tries hard. I'm in a Laser 28. We have comparable speed. Maybe a slight edge to K30 upwind. I typically have them downwind. I can go deeper downwind. (Not sure if it's me or the boat, they always seem to go higher after the windward mark.) 6 years ago our PHRF rating was even. Now, I owe them 6 sec. PHRF sucks. I like the K30. They 3 owners at my club seem to be happy.

    Totally lost...

    Laser 28 ticks all of those boxes.
  4. For the last 3 years, a handful of Laser 28 boat owners on Western Lake Ontario have been getting together for a few regattas to create our own series. The last 2 years we've had 3 regattas on both the Canadian and US sides of Lake Ontario. On February 10 at 11:30 we will be having a planning meeting in Grimsby, ON at the Casablanca. All Laser 28 sailors are invited to join us to share a few beers and help set up the schedule for 2018. Anyone interested in the Laser 28 is welcome.

    US Navy ship stuck in ice until...

    I lived there for 5 years. I won't say they're prettier than other places; they just have the right attitude. Some places where I've lived, if you were looking at a girl's ass, they would be looking for a cop claiming you were assaulting them with your eyes. In Montreal, they would smile and say, "Thank you. I worked hard to get it to look like this."

    What boat to buy?

    I heard there may be an Esse 850 for sale in Toronto.

    Toronto boat show 2018

    There's been zero sailing porn for last 5 or 6 years at least. But, if you're interested in the latest Bayliner, go for it...

    You probably avoid black cats and ladders.

    Spot on.
  12. There is an R boat in Toronto that made the change. Bit of a "resto-mod". She had a cruising interior that they stripped out and pulled out the diesel and fuel tanks. I know the current owners are happy with the change. No details about motor size or the number of batteries; but, the boat is for sale.

    It sounds like a write off for her.
