    Now that is nice rig...but needs personal inspection...and trailer...just love it though. Wish I lived closer. Seriously.

    Alan, I agree, have knife will travel...re condition, but wood I do love. Still a nica bot...and trailer. Wonder about motor-meaning sails, red marks on my ancient rump.

    Nica boat...leaves water from fall weather? Seems restored nicely. The snubber bronze? What is rig-time, if dry sailed? Douglass's finest effort (to me)...even if he sort of copied Uffa...Douglass took a chance and did not gouge or game customers, like Performance and some later corporations (Brunswick) did. I still prefer keelers...like the old 110s. Just me.

    Way, way overpriced. Was a Front Page item about boat shows in Chi morphing into "sports" shows...methinks missed the problem....moola to sail. I had a Laser 10 years back and sold it for peanuts, if a new rig is 11 times more costly today, and that included the trainer...no helmets either.

    I still do not ride bike with helmet and am very wary of parked cars...opening doors...but that is a virtue from past. Sailing? I am not a foiler, though have tried it...Just not my thing. Am more of a beercan racer/builder/sailing slut who fancies keelers and nekkid chicksa swabs. Cannot imagine nekkid with helmet and "deckies."

    Simon and Girlie are off in lyrics...us big girls do not have to pull up our big-girl panties to sail, because we do not equate helmet-needs with sailing (meaning we do not wear 'em), having done it for decades on dinghies and ships for decades... To each his own...betcha Nathanial would shun the helmet too, as well as consider, as did many naval architects, the costs of "go fasts," relative to general market and environment. Sail the pond with Dougie! Wear a gladiator's cover, have a ball, just not for some of us, though we watch and smile!

    Loose, he might at first, but maybe not later...'cept if the money need got to him...sailing with helmets, to me, is not it...so antithetical to the idea...but one swab's flot is another swab's treasure, after all we got the dinger pols we got for a reason, right?

    Always looking for Banshees. Easy to handle, when knocked down...and get back aboard...if you get my drift. Besides always thought Banshees were the best rigs in warmer waters.

    Alan, No problem, understand. Happens. Weather has been nice here, too nice, will pay for being lazy...hard to decide. Already messing with build notions, with evil eye on small IC dinghy I bought, then could not pick up...dang it...and owner returned moola...so still men at work.

    @Alan Crawford...do you have way of knowing if Banshee in 2131 sold? I pass by area on way to SF when visiting daughter and son in law's fam...if no idea, no resp needed.

    Makes sense to me... I tried simple here, with an IC dingy...too much for locals...amazed me, seriously. Plus city would not commit to small fenced-in area for storing 6 rigs...but then we are what we are here. I got riffed by city people who did not want to spend money on cutting milfoil weeds, etc, while they spend 4 years and 3 million $coots redoing a park, 100 feet from city waterworks and not adding water fountains. Amazing.

    Not a collecting person, D, but am seriously loving the Athens rig...one thing about Snipes, simple/fast...whisker sailing is for me. I can get down might just do it...
