    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.

    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!

    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.

    Yep, virtually same exact lines, etc, 505 is faster and less stable, they rate 80.1 and 79.5 so about same.

    Come sail my FD, it is complete and ready to go, my 505 is just starting to be restored. The 505 is more modern in it's control systems, but about as many lines as the FD, I'd relate them to a nascar(FD) and a sccagt4(505).
