    Heavy upwind = Comanche

    Comanche will go BJ will improve in areas where Oats have... and Oats will improve by controlling MR (and some mods but not sure what mods). Scally.... very outside chance if others break... It's all been said before.... C will win if there is consistent breeze... not sure on the other two.. One thing I do know... I don't go regularly but now that I am, it will blow stink on the nose.... Either way If I make the line, it will be my last...

    Well said... If you are in the market for a tri.... look no further than Trispirit.... I don't know the asking price but Jason is a realist and there is one thing about this boat I know and that is it is ready to go with nothing to spend for a while. Also when I considered buying it, I had my insurance company look at the boat (on paper) and they were happy to insure it... I estimate Bullfrog to be $120,000 to 150,000 to make right without new sails....

    Correct on all counts Jack (as usual).... Still her on my arm works... I can always knock the top off to relieve tension...... as usual... With a boat like Parodox and a "friend" super model.... she will have friends for me... Not sure who your regular is (JH..?) but like you i was offered the trip by Jim himself and his carrot was the fact I would only have to take 2 weeks max off work based on the previous time the boat did it and the guarantee we would straight line it. The fact they haven't left means maybe the family won't go and the boys will have more time. Funny we could have ended up spending 2 weeks holiday together Tubby..... Maybe we both need to unchain ourselves from work and live a little more .. next time.. You own a Brenta ...? Jim has a 42 and there is virtually no room downstairs on that... nice fun harbour boat though....

    They did a good job of updating that... good cruiser as well by the looks Bugger this light air

    Incorrect... The family is doing the delivery.. They are not cruising. My point is value for buck.... 15-25 million for Comanche is not in my story.... Rio 100 is not great value imo. A one trick pony and when it's time to sell i'm not sure there will be buyers... but to each their own... Paradox performs more tricks.. I see the value

    Lots of boat comparisons here... I like this one Rio 100ft ....6 days 9 hours .... Stacked crew (16-20) and big dollar rebuild with new gear... out and out racer... manually powered (6 people) Paradox tri 63ft ... 6 days 2 hours... small crew (5-8) not sure the money but guessing half the budget ... Cruiser racer and can be sailed by friends.. Powered winches means quiet easy... Pop off to Tahiti after and cruise the south Pacific I know which I would own... Or Caro.. I love that boat.... Or a Gun Boat
