    Trucking a 40.7

    The trailer we used had keel about 4 inches off road. Not anything like that.

    Trucking a 40.7

    I moved my 40.7 it was shoal draft. Trucker thought it was deep fin version . He set a route that avoided low bridges - we removed front and rear pulpit prior to him understanding no deep keel version it was no big deal if they travel during weekdays they need a spotter vehicle My move was in Michigan cost was reasonable 2k good luck

    Help me out with some MORC History

    My dad had a person aerial it was a great boat. - once while towing the trailer detached for station wagon(442 engine). It went down the freeway on its tongue crashed thru the guardrail at stopped. No damage at all except for the pot on the stove that fell down It was our little secret I was told the passers by helped hook it up and off we went. He added a bow sprit to help light air up wind. It was a PHRF killer. mom never found out

    Beer can racing - When to protest or not

    Yep I agree it takes all the fun out of racing. regarding getting people into racing -I belive we are loosing ~30% of new sailors. They will never start racing due to this stuff.

    Beer can racing - When to protest or not

    Follow up: he emailed me with the usual it’s just a race why am I getting all worked up? I responded I will protest him next time. Today he responded with let’s be friends stuff I think he got the message. The little talk/emails I hope works- protests are a pain. That being said I have the red flag ready and the protest forms in the nav station. thanks for the comments next week we will see.
  11. Ok here goes racing in Detroit nice little 6 mile jaunt around the cans we always get a little fleet compression at one of the marks with a range of cal 25s sport boats and some old IOR type boats. It’s fun and interesting to maneuver thru with my bigger than most boat. the issue is their is this guy - who cut inside the Fleet on new breeze failed to give room (to me) and then says what it’s a beer can race what’s the big deal? Sort of like those guys who barge at starts . BTW he’s not in my class it’s going to happen again he is the type. Is a protest the only remedy?

    Great 35-footers

    I had a Santana 35 it was a great boat - of course I had to rebuild it. its roomy has great PHRF rating, kids loved it, and not very complicated to sail. Its still my families favorite boat.

    Wrong time to buy a boat?

    Clean has it right. It’s business- used boat market is about to tank as this thing winds it’s way thru Economy
