So you have hull 143? Looks like a deck-mounted sprit, is that on centerline or off-set? Carbon boom also?
What gains do you feel this had made and what rating hit did you take?
She looks great and is an interesting boat.
sold them all off.
she rate 69 the same as the 109s I race against way to get to 69 is as folows:
repace rudder with carbon one 18" deeper about half the chord net same area.. -1 sec
added carbon rig and boom - 3sec - 68
fwd cabin deluxe full teak interior boat trim was down 2 " on bow class float line 1 sec credit =69
took off all syms and pole used asym tacked on bow +9sec =78
istalled retrating sprit on deck , tack on ctrline, pole offsenter fixed - 3sec / 10% spl added pushed it out 30% which equals -9 sec = 69
all carbon 3dl inventory as complete range of chute as well as staysail
boat sails equal or better than the 109s if I am on my game lots of fun mixing up with them as an old warhorse design with improvments
Thanks for the breakdown. I've already received an e-mail from one of the partners in our boat (there are 3 of us) to stop the wheels from turning in my head.................................
Do you still have the pieces to return her to class specs? (if ever needed?)
