    Lightning vs CL16

    Lightning (1973, Hull 12,403) Regarding the above vintage. This is the era that T. Allen used open cell foam in the hull. Once the water got in, you could NEVER get it out. Could be as much as a couple hundred pounds. I would avoid any 12000 series Allens'. 13000 ain't too great either. They got the design squared away with the early 14000's and currently make a superior boat. I am also thinking 12403 is a lot newer than 1973.

    waterlogged laser question

    Might leak.... a lot. Mating joint between deck and hull, bailer, and bottom of mast sump are generally sources of leaks. If mast step is cracked it is a major pain to fix (correctly) Enjoy!

    BMW 750 Vs Mercedes CLS?

    Use to drive 745's and 750's I have found that not nearly as many people give me the finger since I went back to Fords and Hyundais.

    30-35 ft sprit boat - up to 75K

    And just where do I say the 120 got up on a plane? Only 6 Columbia C32's built. 2 lost. Not much of a one-design opportunity. Although 2 of them are in the NYC area.

    30-35 ft sprit boat - up to 75K

    Carbon Carbon 32. Contrary to the misinformation up-thread, we raced one season. Rating was terrible. phrf 45. We actually owed a J120 time. The 120 was faster on all points of sail. We could get up on a plane pretty quick, but since we sailed W/L, that didn't happen much. The boat rates in the mid-50" in other places. Quite impossible. (thank you Lake Erie phrf) And USA236...why don't you stop by the Colgate 26 or J22 I sail on, so I can introduce you to the facts. You clearly need some enlightenment.
