    The VX Evo

    You have no friends? No kids want to sail with you? Work on your people skills or get a Golden Retriever to crew for you- trust me, they will naturally go to the high side and look forward to assess the tactical situation. Seriously, the boat will fit a lot of couples and parents/children. BB mentioned the possibility of a weighted keel or bulb awhile ago, haven't heard anything about it since, nor do I even understand what sort of keel the boat uses at the moment. Sounds like it may be hinged? Does anyone know? Are you looking at any of the other dingy's? Melges 14, RS Aero, etc? No I don't have any friends, and no kids .I want a singlehanded boat, that would be a bit more sedate then my A Cat or a skif, yet still fairly quick.The RS100 seems to fit the bill, but I think the Evo might be a better design. The Aero is a good choice but I would prefer a boat with a kite.

    According to Intensity's FB post, 191lbs is minimum! I guess at 160 lbs, I'm out. Just when I thought it would be a better choice thne an RS100

    Thanks for keeping me on your list Paul! I should have just come over and bought one for the Small Boat Regatta this weekend. Although I'm still considering the RS100.

    The dealer on the west coast has some and sold a few. Are you sailing further south now?Yeah we moved down to Palm Beach County a year and a half ago. We still come up to Melbourne to race J/24s every so often.I tried to get the St. Pete dealer to come over with an Aero for the MYC Small Boat Regatta next weekend, but they were tied up. Are you doing the Fall Big Boat Regatta?

    20+ Footer - Building in Hawaii

    I was told the same thing over a year ago....or was it 2 years ago! Jerryd, as Gone wrote, He works on this boat when time allows. Just out of curiosity how many you think are interested in JD20. Jim's boat is a too high tech but there can be a cheaper production version I believe. I can't answer your question. However, I think there is or was a much larger market for the JD20 then the GP 26. No doubt this was proven by the J70.

    The Farr 30's did well. Red Stripe wasn't far behind. Good thing they had a Chef!

    I think there were/are a number of us interested. Probably more then the GP26. But for some reason the project died while J Boats continued to forge ahead with the J/70. Too bad!

    Nice mix! I PM'd you.

    Flying Tiger

    Maybe an FT 7.5? But then he'd have to sail against that hot SR-Max

    Flying Tiger

    Interesting. I live between both boats. I mentioned to the owner of the Melbourne boat (can't remember his name) a while back that I was always available to crew. It would be great to hook up with him at MYC.

    Flying Tiger

    What ever happened to the Flying Tiger? Strangely quiet, particularly the 10M. We used to have one in a Melbourne, Florida that appeared to be semi-active, but I haven't heard about in for some time?
