    Modified Farr395's, how are they holding up?

    Unsure. Can’t find the listing to check. New rudder is primo though.

    Old School is very much not a stock Farr 395 below the waterline. They went with a low vcg keel like five years ago. I’m not sure what they did with the balsa but the work was done in Rhode Island so presumably it was done well.

    2018 Big Boat Challenge

    So when infotrack was loyal they blew up a spinnaker during the SOLAS race and had a new one finished by north in time for the big race. I’ll be surprised if North isn’t able to put together a couple downwind sails for Scallywag in 14 days.

    canister gas stoves - how do people deal with safety ?

    Don't forget the tent stakes and 3$ aluminum coffee pots.

    prism

    You totally could, but I'm not sure if I'd feel overcharged or just sore from craning to see it while out hiking. On a per-screen basis the Prisim seems to be a bargain!

    Hobie 33 anyone?

    “Interesting stories” Ask me about the two piece rudder stock. Please.

    J/88

    Just a little bit of a plug for a friend organizing a regatta. The Edlu Race is a 32 mile distance race on LIS the weekend after American YC Spring Series in a few weeks time. So far there are 3 J/88s entered in the event and a number that seem interested. The OA has said that they'll give the 88s a One Design start if they can get 5 or more boats entered. Just thought anyone on here might want to talk or think about it. Yachtscoring site here: https://yachtscoring.com/current_event_entries.cfm?eID=3041

    Miami to Havana Sleigh Ride Thread

    I'm gutted for them after the same thing happened to us on the Hobie 33 last year in the same race in the same conditions. They've even bailed to the same marina we bailed to. It's a tough one to take. The Hobie is an offshore rocket, and Mirage will likely win this race overall, but the rudder is their major point of concern in sporty conditions. Doubly impressed by the crew on Simon Says sailing it in with the emergency tiller. That takes serious skill, but if anyone is capable of doing it then it's the group of experienced guys in the afterguard of that boat.

    Donovan GP26 starts production in Turkey

    "My Honda has an automatic transmission. Why doesn't that Ferrari have the same trannie as my Honda when the auto is clearly better!!!" That's how you sound.

    Those are all false assumptions.
