    Can’t see the smoke, but this was the moment you were describing. At least the dogs were good.

    Thanks, Joe. I also found the link for certified surveyors, but I was wondering if anyone had their personal favorites based on past experience.

    VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Shorty checking in. I want to echo many of the sentiments expressed above. Once our weather warmed up and our sailing season started, I was thinking of not doing the rest of the VOR legs but it was this group and the scoring that kept me going. I’ve been coming to the SA message boards since the very early days when you didn’t have to register (15ish years ago?!?) and over the years I got tired of all of the shit fights and trollers. It got to the point where you couldn’t post anything without someone going after you. There has been none of that in this thread and I certainly appreciate it. I think this is a really good group of people. Big thanks to @Your Mom for all of the help throughout. I’ll plan to be back for the next loop around the globe and I hope that @Tunnel Rat and I can do the scoring again. Cheers and have a great rest of your summer/winter depending on which half of the globe you reside. Shorty

    All of the scoring thanks should go to TR for this leg since I was not able to contribute much. The virtual VOR version of Shorty still has a few hours to go but the real Shorty finished up the queen’s cup at 3 A.M. Looks we just missed out on a podium finish as we were fourth. Fun race and the conditions were actually pretty good.

    Just once for me, but pre-race partying can be time consuming.

    The last leg is not gonna be pretty for me. I’ll be out on the water out of cell range for a good bit of this leg. Just left Holland heading across the lake to Milwaukee. Better get some programming done before I’m out of cell range.

    Thanks, 4010. I have it on the list as it checks a lot of the boxes and we still have a decent one design section in the Mac race, although some are racing non OD now in ORR optimized trim going for the overall. While they are more than 10 years old, there are still a few that have been well cared for.

    Nice one, Guf. I knew I had opened a can of worms after typing that.

    Definitely pushing the sixth mode. I think foils will get it there.

    Wife is not a fan of the interior (big keel trunk takes up a lot of space) and I’m sort of getting tired of the annual repair work. She’s in a lot better shape than when I bought her 11 years ago, but while it’s fun to get after the stuff that needs attention, it gets old after a while. The buyer was pleased with the overall condition and he runs a boatyard, so I guess that says something. But that’s why I’m looking for something newer that has been well cared for. Standard maintenance, paint bottom, buff top sides and launch. I’d also prefer something that rates well under ORR. Our current rating has us owing time to a Bashdord Howison 36, which I know for a fact is faster than we are based on head to head competition. A J/111would work and the prices are starting to come down. I’m not in a hurry and the house needs attention anyway, so I’ll take my time and wait for something good to come up in the listings.
