    And watch e-bay, where all of mine have come from, the MX-ray from Minnesota, the J-18 from Tenn, the 29'er from Michigan, the FD from Florida, the 505 from Colorado, but if you want an IC, prob have to bring from UK.

    There was a Bongo at yer club, did anyone ever see it sail or ask if it worked?, am wondering how much it will help also.

    And sail everything before you buy, some of us are just not catamaran guys!

    Rod Favela is the finest man you’ll ever meet, for new. No such thing as used, watch Craigslist.

    And come up to Texoma, you can sail one of mine if you dare. But really, how much do you want to spend, will make all the diff in recommendations
  8. I use a wakeboarding impact vest, will not move and protects my ribs from impacts. It is not cg approved so will not float you to save life, but works awesome, and is very comfy.

    Estimating Sailing Time?

    If I get blood on my sail?

    Ok, have the best (worst) bloody story, and my TCC friends can vouch for it's accuracy. Sailing my old IC USA204, at the fall dinghy fest here, big gusty day, wetsuit on, was on end of seat all the way out when at full tilt the seat slid in so fast I couldn't even react. My butt crack hit the edge of carriage so hard I almost blacked out. Recovered enough to start sailing back to start line when I saw the blood trail on water and seat. Went in and stripped down to find massive gash in the worst place possible, went to emergency room and had 17 stitches put in! And I have the scar to prove it, but only my wifey has ever seen it. And probably only an IC sailor can appreciate.

    Try sailing an IC, I look like a gladiator with all the protective gear I wear, learned the hard way.
