  1. Regardless of your halfassed backpedaling à bit further down, there is always the choice to sell your point by focusing on its positives, rather than being negative about something you are against. As far as I know, you have never even seen Tritium up close, have no idea of its performance against other boats like it, and no real desire to. Another know it all on a discussion board.

    what's wrong with it?

    Nothing at all except its all original. Still the best racing there is on the west coast and a beautiful surfing machine for going to Hawaii!

    Converting Class 40

    Pogo 1 is a spectacular boat, really roomy inside and very quick. Would be easy for a couple and one or two kids to cruise on.

    Main halyard locks

    Harken makes a halyard lock for use with IMOCA 60 that would be good for a tri of that size. ask them. PLUS it works flawlessly

    what is it?

    An outrageous amount of work!!!!
  7. Mainsails are the same size or smaller than a TP. Jibs bigger. Dollar per fun ratio cannot be beat, and what other boat will surf mini waves in 9 knots of breeze carrying a full galley, enclosed head, and nice plush bunks, along with being waterproof.

    Spindrift 2 Jules Verne 2018

    When they were both in the southern ocean at the same time (when neither got the record) IDEC came from behind spindrift, passed within 2 miles of them and sailed away over the horizon. you can find a video of this from IDEC.

    Clubswan 125

    The owner is russian. boat is going to be very late.
  12. This thread gets started every year or so. The answer is a resounding absolutely not. The crashes after the drugs would lead to big periods of going slow, which would most likely occur at the most inopportune time. Most of these guys even go as far as not drinking coffee nearly as much while on the water as the roller coaster of energy is not worth it.

    New imoca boats

    No, The volvo 70 rule did not allow inclined pins. This is not true. Perhaps with tons of heel the fin would become a planing surface with a ton of gear piled at the back, but certainly no incline.

    PAC 52

    I think the point is that you could have bought 2 mod 70 for 3 million and per year running costs would be the same when you consider how many less guys you need.
