    Self Christmas Present For Your Dinghy??

    I made a assy pole launcher and pole and lines for my FD, now it's turbo! And my 23sq mtr kite from the AC fits perfect on it! Will post pix when it's warm enough. The 505 is getting all new lines, including spliced 12 braid to wire halyard, like it should have been.

    I'm in, when we get big d's new AC here, hope he will be able to go also, maybe we can convince luzius to sail one, then we could have three! And Merry Christmas to all y'all!

    The VX Evo

    MR IC SAID THAT! Seriously, it is an awesome boat, and could be much fun, but I spent way to much time just learning to sail an AC, not many can. Hope all the best for the EVO in Texas!

    How long to get FD from trailer to sailing?

    International Canoe, 17' carbon fiber toothpick, with 33 sq meters of sail, see my avatar.

    How long to get FD from trailer to sailing?

    On my FD it takes 30-40 min total, on my IC it takes 10-15 total, but I have seriously rerigged it for speed, and leave the kite halyard and jib on the mast. But I live 13 miles to the lake, so is ok, when going out of town have to strip and takes longer.

    505 vs. 470

    SO CORRECT, IT HAS NO HULL # Built in 1980 by Buzz Ballenger, original owner Jason Spiller, originally named "Cantankerous Canary" 7155! Aaron Ross was the last owner the new set of sails is 7199, has nationals stamps on them, perfect shape.

    505 vs. 470

    And I tracked down the original owner, he said it was the best 50 he ever had, sat in a garage for 18 years not used!

    505 vs. 470

    I picked this up from Colorado, Ballenger hull 7199, for 187.25 with two sets of sails, one new set from hull 7283. It's gunna be epic when all redone.
