    BYC Mackinac - Time to Pull the Plug?

    That was my 1st CYC Mac race. It didn't chase me off, have since done another 24. Sorry to be missing this year.

    Grammar wasn't the best. I still understood what it said. But go on, keep being a hater.

    BYC Mackinac - Time to Pull the Plug?

    This worked just fine. All you haters, who weren't even sailing, need to find something else to whine about.

    We sailed this year. Huge props to Chris Clark and BYC for giving us the opportunity to sail. Those of you who chose not to sail missed a good race. It seems odd to not be heading to Chicago for their race.

    Chicago Mackinac Race drowning

    I hope one of the outcomes will be to allow us to wear foam dinghy style vests. I realize their limitations, but I'm a big fan of NOT relying on an inflatable PFD to work when most needed.

    From this year's Chicago Mac race, NA40 hull #4. Mast is class approved replacement triple spreader rig, as original extrusion no longer available. 4 of the 9 Detroit area NA40s now have triple spreader mast.

    Hello, I'm looking for drawings of the North American 40 rudder and skeg. Bent the rudder post recently, and looking to make the best repair possible. Any drawings would be helpful. Thanks.

    There are still 8 or 9 NA40's in Detroit.

    I'm in the midst of replacing 8 stringers in the NA 40 (it is in this thread somewhere, early on), and will post link to photos one of these days. Of the 8, 5 were cracked, and all experienced some degree of damage to the marine plywood substrate, ranging from damp with little delamination, to completely rotted, wet, black sawdust. Replacement stringers substrate are Hydratek marine plywood, with 1708/West vacuum bagged. 7 of the 8 stringers are in, and tabbing is well underway.

    We will be there, clothed.
  13. Thank you. Yes, it is true that PW fell off her cradle, in fact, I picked up one of their crew for Chi Mac. When you gonna come up here and race another set of Mac races?

  14. Have a good race. I heard a rumour that Pinball Wizard fell off her cradle, any thruth to it.

    Thanks for posting that. 33 years ago, I hadn't begun sailing. Today, I have a 33 y/o NA 40, which is, apparently, a proper yacht. IOR was before my time. If well sailed, the boat did well in IMS, does well in ORR, and in PHRF, every dog has it's day. I actually got the boat more to take my kid cruising after the Mac races, but find I am racing it more than I intended. There is still a small but active OD fleet of these in Detroit.
