    ^^ That's funny. Komatsu must be happy with the coverage one of the smallest boats in the fleet gets though.

    Sydney To Hobart 2018

    With Mark Twain being a serious contender, Azzuro better lift her game. Kearns knows (knew) that if he gets the right weather conditions he would do well on the Hobart. Now with Mark Twain there as well, he may have some stiffer competition. I would rather be on a 39 than a 34!!! 30 + sustained southerly for most of the race and a lucky run up the Derwent will see the handicap from God come into play.

    Cockpit table design for 40.7?

    Thanks for the ideas above. Pasport111, yep, bit small for what we were looking for, but I do like the Casa Mare. Will need to look at what we can do to the floor of the cockpit, but very nice. Thanks again.
  4. Looking after a 40.7 and we want to make a cockpit table that is easily removable, but sturdy when in place. Any ideas on what it should look like, attachment points etc. etc.? Any advice welcome. Thanks

    HI RACE WEEK 2018

    Thus was a bit special, and yes Sat finish. We got ran over by a few of them coming into Dent Passage and it was funny to see them struggle at the finish mark. I had to do a last second tack as well as the tide nearly put us on the finish buoy as well!!

    HI RACE WEEK 2018

    A bit late to this thread, but I can confirm HI Div 4 was where the action was. Helmed Firefly (40.7) and had some good matches with Onyx. We did consider offering her some money as our tactician as she was the boat we followed most of the time (except the 2 times we beat her across the line). That little black boat is sailed VERY well. Well done guys. Handicaps were a bit hard to figure out, especially as a new to us boat and scratch crew. Lucky to have a few good sailors on board and an old hand at calling moves. Scored a 2nd place on last day, with 7th out of 16 overall. Had a great time and was fun racing against an old mate on Kahoona. Thu race finish was one of the best with the black boats bow inches from my s'board stern along with about a dozen other boats and a spinnaker gybe just to make it interesting. Learnt later there was a MOB in the middle of all that. Glad I didn't know that at the time!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Good times indeed.

  13. After the latest weather up there is she still in the paddock? In one piece? Spoke to the guy yesterday and she is on her side. Limited damage as far as he can see now, but may put an end to the project. Will wait and see what boat owner says. Madelein's Daughter is no more..............Damage from Debbie was too much and she will be scrapped. Guess it was always a borderline fix from the beginning, but the cyclone damage tipped the scales.
