  1. Hi - I saw your old post re using airdock on your J/70 with a keel extended. How do you do this?  Do you somehow tie the airdock in the back once you guide the boat in?

    Appreciate your advice - I plan to get one for my Open 570 but would like to keep the keel extended.

    What is your overall experience with airdock?  Do you use any hard paint with it or just the original gelcoat?

    Thank you

      Hi-I laced a 4" PVC pipe to the inside edge of the side air bags.  The pipes are about 12' long and extend past the stern of the boat.  I then tie them together to hold the bags under the boat before I inflate the airdock.  The boat is completely out of the water and about 2' of the keel is still in the water.  I have a diver clean the keel once a week for about $10/week.  Works great.  I've been using it for almost five years and no major issues.  There was bottom paint on it when I bought it but I'm sure it's all gone now.  I usually pull it out on a boat ramp once a year to check it over and clean it.  Let me know if you have any questions.

    George just completed the Cool Breeze century 100 mile bike ride from Ventura through Santa Barbara and back. He had the Deardorffs, Wilsons, Sandows and of course Christie cheering him on. The guy's an animal!

    Kudos and Congratulation to SBYC Jr. Tucker Atterbury on his 2nd place finish in the just completed 29er Pacific Coast Championships held at the infamous Columbia Gorge. He mastered the 20-25 knot conditions and out sailed two time Olympic medalist Charlie McKee to earn his silver medal. Way to represent Tucker!! We'll see how you do against the old man at the next laser race:)
