    Improbable

    Wind conks out on a Swiftsure- nahh, never happens. I did not see any listing for for 79 or 80. OTOH, I am still a little dusty for T-day cocktails...

    Dug up my "Swiftsure, The First 50 Years" book. You are listed in the '78 race as DNF.

    what’s missing? on front page

    But in some events you are allowed a golf cart. Including an exception in the PGA for one player years ago- forget his name.

    Interesting all the slagging. I suspect none of you have actually been on the boat and have seen how it all operates. Having been on the boat, and seeing how the systems operate, I can tell you it all works well. Is it cheap to do all this? Nope. But having a 35' that performs well that can be sailed well by one person is a cool outcome. The boat is very much a laboratory for ideas. And I give a lot of credit to Scott for going all in on how to implement this. It is high quality with a lot of innovation all the way.

    How scalable is 3Di?

    I had a Lindsey as well 6987. Loved that boat.

    Reminds me of the prototype small mold and gantry for the first 3dl sails we made in 1991-92. Made myself a really nice 505 main as we were sorting things out. I have a few photos somewhere of the San Leandro plant. Need to find those.

    building a door: which gets tongue/groove ?

    Wine under stairs = vibration. Not great for wines you plan to cellar longer.

    All-New Velocitek ProStart

    Another Thumbs up for the ProStart. Used ours for the first time a few weeks back on a race that into the evening dark hours. All modes- daylight, backlit and red light worked great- very visible. Ran into somethin we had not thought of., and a nice benefit of the device. Very low key race, take your own time event. Was a reverse handicap start. The day prior, we learned in an amendment that the RC would not be on station at the start. The line was a mag heading from a buoy marking one end of the line to a point 0.25 miles away. Was easy to go ping the buoy as one end, then move to a point .25 miles away at the right mag heading and "ping" the other end. No need to worry about a transit or any of that. Relied on the distance to line and made an easy, not over early, start. Really nice having mag heading instead of GPS heading. One thing I would like is to be able to show both side by side.

    what is it?

    I hear its an expensive solution as to how to dock a sailing school boat with an outboard.

    Masthead kites on Fractional design

    Halyard idea is not a effective. Too much stretch, bad angle. Winding it on will only increase compression on the mast. Might actually make it worse.

    This is important why? I didn’t even know there were raring till I saw this thread. Do ratings really change people’s perceptions of what others write? Sincerely curious.
